  author={A. G. Humes and M. Dojiri},
ABSTRi\CT: Dirivultus dentaneus, n. gen., n. sp. (Dirivultidae n. fam.) is charactenzed by a combination of several features: first antenna of the female 13-segmented and that of the male 12-segmented, second antenna with a I-segme.nted exopod, mand!ble lacking a palp, second maxilla and maxilliped p~ehensIle, leg 4 endopod with formula 0-0; I-I, and leg 5 in the female minute with I se~a ?ut in male larger with 3 setae, 2 setae on free segment and I adjacent seta: This IS the first copepod to… Expand

A new species of Exrima, synonymy of four species of Aphotopontius, Stygiopontius and Rhogobius, and record of first copepodid stage of Dirivultidae (Copepoda: Siphonostomatoida) from deep-sea hydrothermal vents of the East Pacific Rise (13°N)
Females of the new species Exrima walteri sp. nov. were found in sediment trap samples deployed over different sites of the East Pacific Rise (13°N) at 2600 m depth. Four traps were deposited duringExpand

A new genus and species Neobrychiopontius galeronae gen. nov. sp. nov. is described based on female specimens from the Pacific nodule province associated with the abyssal holothurian OneirophantaExpand
New species of Stygiopontius (Copepoda: Siphonostomatoida: Dirivultidae) from a deep-sea hydrothermal volcano in the New Ireland Fore-Arc system (Papua New Guinea)
A male of the new species Stygiopontius senckenbergi belonging to the family Dirivultidae Humes & Dojiri, 1980 (Copepoda: Siphonostomatoida) and endemic to deep-sea hydrothermal vents, is describedExpand
Convergent evolution of mouthparts morphology between Siphonostomatoida and a new genus of deep-sea Aegisthidae Giesbrecht, 1893 (Copepoda: Harpacticoida)
A striking new genus of Aegisthidae is discovered which exhibits convergent evolution of mouthpart morphology with that of siphonostomatoid copepods and represents a third major shift in the lifestyle of aegisthidCopepods, from benthic and hyperbenthic to associated forms (probably with sponges or cnidarians).

Copepods of the family Dirivultidae (Siphonostomatoida) from deep-sea hydrothermal vent fields on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge at 14ºN and 5ºS
The discovery of dirivultids at 5oS represents the first record of copepods from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent southward of the Logachev field in the Atlantic Ocean. Expand
Occurrence of Chromadorita regabi sp. nov. (Nematoda: Adenophorea), a nematode egg predator of Alvinocaris muricola (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Alvinocarididae) from a deep cold seep area of the Gulf of Guinea
A new species of the genus Chromadorita, found in a cold-seep area in the Gulf of Guinea during two French cruises, with the combination of long size, nine strong preanal papillae and relatively small dorsal tooth with weak musculature distinguishes this species from all known congeneric ones.

Aphotopontius Acanthinus, New Species (Copepoda: Siphonostomatoida), from Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vents on the East Pacific Rise
A new species of siphonostomatoid, Aphotopontius acanthinus, is described from deep-sea vents at the East Pacific Rise, and observations on its ecology noted. Expand
A New Archaeogastropod (Rhipidoglossa, Trochacea) from Hydrothermal Vents on the East Pacific Rise
The shell is unique in its combination of reflexed growth lines, strongly prosocline aperture, discordant sculpture, discoidal geometry and pattern of apertural angulations and the unusual shell form and simplification of shell microstructure are interpreted as evolutionary correlates of small size.
