Saronebalia guanensis, a new genus and species of leptostracan, is described from material discovered in shallow subtidal waters of Guana Island, British Virgin Islands. The specimens were collected from light traps placed on sediment and by hand from the green alga Halimeda. Saronebalia differs from other leptostracans most notably in the morphology of the antennule and the eighth thoracic limb: the articles of the antennular flagellum are fused and bear dense clusters of setae, and the eighth… 

A New Species of Leptostraca, Nebalia koreana (Malacostraca: Phyllocarida), from South Korea

A new species of leptostracan, Nebalia koreana (Malacostraca) collected from the southern and eastern coasts of the Korean peninsula is reported, which is the first species of Nebalia found in the temperate zone of Asia.

Leptostracans (Crustacea: Phyllocarida) from the Ría de Ferrol (Galicia, NW Iberian Peninsula), with description of a new species of Nebalia Leach, 1814

Sampling in subtidal sediments in the Ria of Ferrol (NW Spain) between 2006 and 2007 yielded several leptostracan specimens belonging to six species, which is, so far, the largest number of leptOSTracan species reported from a single area.

Leptostracans (Crustacea: Phyllocarida) from mud volcanoes at the Gulf of Cadiz (NE Atlantic) with description of a new species of Sarsinebalia Dahl, 1985

Three leptostracan species (Crustacea: Phyllocarida) are reported from mud volcanoes at the Moroccan margin of the Gulf of Cadiz (NE Atlantic) and the new species is characterised by having the eyes provided with ommatidia and lacking pigment.

Nebalia mediterranea sp. nov. (Crustacea, Leptostraca) is described from the Aegean coast of Turkey and Northern Cyprus. The new species is closely related to other sympatric species in the eastern

Pseudalpheopsis guana gen. nov., sp. nov. (Crustacea: Decapoda), a new alpheid shrimp from the british virgin islands, caribbean sea

Pseudalpheopsis guana gen. nov. appears to be most closely related to Alpheopsis Coutiere, 1896 (sensu lato), but differs from all species currently placed in this genus by the unique armature of the chelipeds and the presence of a ”pseudo-hepatic tooth” on the anterior margin of the carapace, above the pterygostomial angle.

consti-First record of the genus Paranebalia Claus, 1880 from the Mediterranean Sea (Crustacea: Leptostraca)

Benthic monitoring of the marine shallow bottoms off Menorca has yielded several specimens of the leptostracan genus Paranebalia Claus, 1880, which constitutes the first report of the genus from European latitudes and the Mediterranean Sea and therefore the third leptosperm genus known from the Mediterranean.

First Record of Paranebalia longipes (Crustacea: Phyllocarida: Leptostraca) from South Korea

This species can be clearly distinguished from other species of Paranebalia by the presence of serration on posterior margin of pleopods, the number of articles on antennules and antenna, and number of teeth on flange of antennule fourth article.

Nebalia kensleyi, a new species of leptostracan (Crustacea: Phyllocarida) from Tomales Bay, California

ABSTRACT A new species of leptostracan, Nebalia kensleyi, is described from the coast of central California. It differs from other species of Nebalia most notably in the shape and color of the

First record of a bathyal leptostracan, Nebalia abyssicola Fage, 1929 (Crustacea: Malacostraca: Phyllocarida), in the Aegean Sea, eastern Mediterranean

Data on deep sea leptostracans (Crustacea: Phyllocarida: Leptostraca) are still scarce in many parts of the world. In the last few years, several species of Nebalia Leach, 1814, have been reported


The species Nebalia strausi Risso, 1826 (Crustacea: Leptostraca) is first recorded in the Ccanarian archipelago. The study species was recorded between hidrozoans growing in a line of an abandoned



Levinebalia maria, a new genus and new species of Leptostraca (Crustacea) from Australia

Species of Levinebalia differ from Paranebalia in: having the surface of their eyes smooth; lacking a setal brush on the mandible incisor; having smooth pleopod peduncle margins and having crenellations on the margin of pleonites 5, 6, and 7.

A new species of Nebalia (Crustacea, Leptostraca) from Unguja Island (Zanzibar), Tanzania, East Africa, with a phylogenetic analysis of leptostracan genera

The species is characterized by the following unique combination of characters: a short and broad rostrum; a carapace that is large compared to overall body size and that covers pleonite 4; a basally narrow compound eye; and acutely pointed denticles at the dorsal margin of pleon segments 6 and 7.

Crustacea Leptostraca, principles of taxonomy and a revision of European shelf species

The principles for working on leptostracan taxonomy are laid down and a model for description of species is presented, it is shown that species decriptions should always be based on females, and the model is applied in a revision of the leptospora species of the European shelf.


ABSTRACT The leptostracan Dahlella caldariensis, new genus, new species, is common at hydrothermal vents on the Galapagos spreading center and the East Pacific Rise at 13°N and 21°N (2,450-2,620 m

A phylogeny of the leptostraca (Crustacea) with keys to families and genera

It is concluded that a phylogeny based on species-level taxa and many informative characters is more likely to represent true evolutionary relationships than one based solely on genera and few characters.

On the Embryology of the Crustacean Nebalia Bipes

The mode of development of the former is said to resemble that of the Mysidacea, but the embryology of no Leptostracan has been adequately followed, and the recent work on mysid development has considerably modified many previous views on this subject.

The callynophore, a eucaridan/peracaridan sensory organ prevalent among the Amphipoda (Crustacea)

The callynophore is a sensory organ located at the proximal end of the outer flagellum of the antennule of the peracaridans that is considered to be detection of receptive females by chemoreception.

Limb ontogeny and trunk segmentation in Nebalia species (Crustacea, Malacostraca, Leptostraca)

The presence of a row of ventral, sternitic, triangular processes between the bases of the thoracopods, as they are found in certain stages of a species of Nebalia, is suggested as a possible ground pattern for the Malacostraca.
