A review of 37 bopyrid isopods known to infest 43 species of caridean shrimps in China is presented, based on literature records and new material. Synonymies are provided for all species, with descriptions and detailed illustrations given for species represented by material examined herein. Bopyrids recorded as new species or new Chinese records belong to the subfamilies Argeiinae (2 or 3 species, depending on the identity of Argeia sp.: Argeia pugettensis Dana, 1852, Argeia sp., Stegoalpheon… 
Two new species and a new record of Bopyrinae (Isopoda: Bopyridae) infesting Alpheidae and Hippolytidae, with comments on the genus Bopyrina Kossmann, 1881.
Two new bopyrid species are described from French Polynesia, the Red Sea, and the Philippines, and review of the species of Bopyrina revealed that B. choprai Nierstrasz & Brender à Brandis, 1929 and B. sewelli Chopra, 1930 are intermediate in morphology between BOPyrina and Schizobopyrinina, the taxonomic assignment of these two species needs further evaluation.
A new genus and two new species of Argeiinae (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae) from the Indo-west Pacific
The new genus Paraeragia kiribatiensis is described and it can be distinguished by female with triangular pleon, lateral plates extend posteriorly, paired uropods, widely opened brood pouch, and male with head separated from first pereomere, pleon as wide as seventh perenomere.
Parasites (Isopoda: Epicaridea and Nematoda) from ghost and mud shrimp (Decapoda: Axiidea and Gebiidea) with descriptions of a new genus and a new species of bopyrid isopod and clarification of Pseudione Kossmann, 1881.
Bopyrid isopods represent a large, diverse taxon and the findings help clarify the taxonomy of those species found on ghost and mud shrimps.
New occurrences and host records for two species of parasitic isopods (Isopoda, Cymothoida, Bopyridae) associated with caridean shrimps (Decapoda, Caridea) from Brazil
Two species of bopyrid isopods of the Bopyrinae subfamily are recorded from new localities and hosts in northeastern Brazil, found for the first time parasitising the caridean shrimp Alpheus packardii Kingsley, 1880.

Abstract Thirty-eight species of Isopoda, belonging to 13 families and 29 genera, are listed from Kuwait based on previous literature records (of 17 species) and collections carried out along
A new species of Pseudione Kossmann, 1881 (Crustacea, Isopoda, Bopyridae) parasitizing the squat lobster Munida microphthalma A. Milne-Edwards, 1880 in the Southwestern Atlantic.
The number of specimens obtained as well as the life history stage diversity of the type series, consisting of mature females, mature males, subadult males and cryptoniscus larvae, are unusually large for bopyrid isopod type series.
Mass occurrence of small isopodan crustaceans in 100-million-year-old amber: an extraordinary view on behaviour of extinct organisms
Within Isopoda (woodlice and relatives), there are lineages characterised by a parasitic lifestyle that all belong to Cymothoida and likely form a monophyletic group. Representatives of Epicaridea
Systematics and convergent evolution of multiple reef-associated Jurassic and Cretaceous crabs (Decapoda, Brachyura)
The Late Jurassic marks the first major radiation among true crabs (Brachyura) in reef environments, followed by another diversification in the midto Late Cretaceous in multiple habitats. We studied
Rediscovery of the bopyrid isopod Parabopyrella thomasi (Nierstrasz & Brender à Brandis, 1929), parasite of the arrow shrimp Tozeuma carolinense Kingsley, 1878 (Decapoda, Caridea) in the Caribbean region
This work provides data on some morphological variations in both sexes of this species as well as on the fecundity of this ectoparasite.
