A re-assessment of Hexapleomera Dudich, 1931 (Crustacea: Tanaidacea: Tanaidae), with designation of three new species

  author={Roger N. Bamber},
The tanaid genus Hexapleomera has long been considered to be monotypic, comprising a cosmopolitan species predom-inantly commensal on turtles, or, more rarely, manatees. Recent discovery of material of a distinct species of Hexapleomera living on the hulls of yachts in south-west England encouraged re-assessment of the literature on this taxon,and re-examination of free-living benthic material from the eastern Mediterranean. As a result, five species are recognizedwithin the genus Hexapleomera… Expand
Re-evaluation of Morphological Diagnostic Characteristics of Hexapleomera Dudich, 1931 (Crustacea: Tanaidacea), with Description of a New Species
H. yokjidona is a new species of Hexapleomera and detailed morphological characteristics of both genders are described and a comprehensive comparison among the species of the genus is tabulated. Expand
New species of the genus Zeuxo (Peracarida, Tanaidacea)
The species Z. paranormani Sieg, 1980 is demoted to a junior synonym of Z. normani, while the ‘Zeuxo normani’ from Australia is raised to full species rank under the name Z. edgari. Expand
A new species of the genus Hexapleomera Dudich, 1931 from the South Korea, with molecular evidence (Crustacea, Tanaidacea, Tanaididae)
Two genetically-close populations differed in the setae on pleopod 3, the proximalSetae on the maxilliped coxa, and the ventral setae in pereopods 2–3, which showed that geographical distance affected the morphological divergence. Expand
Description, systematics and ecology of a new tanaidacean (Crustacea, Peracarida) species from mediterranean fish farms
Although several substrata were investigated, the species was most abundant where the turf formed by Ceramiaceae algae and the hydroid Aglaophenia sp. Expand

Three new species of agathotanaids belonging to the genera Agathotanais, Bunburia and Paranarthrura are described from southwestern Java, Indonesia, Indian Ocean during the research cruise SJADES in 2018. Expand
Another inordinate fondness†: diversity of the tanaidacean fauna of Australia, with description of three new taxa
It is concluded that Australian coasts suffer a diversity of immigration routes, have sufficient marine longevity, and afford such a Diversity of available niches to have allowed multiple colonization and subsequent allopatric speciation of Tanaidacea. Expand
Genetic divergence of tanaidaceans (Crustacea: Peracarida) with low dispersal ability
The results showed that traditional species identification underestimates tanaidacean diversity and that what have been previously perceived as reliable diagnostic morphological characters, are, however, variable and unreliable. Expand
Sinelobus stromatoliticus sp. nov. (Peracarida: Tanaidacea) found within extant peritidal stromatolites
Living coastal stromatolites, layered structures formed by the microbially mediated precipitation of calcium carbonate, are scarce because of grazing and burrowing disruption by metazoans, amongstExpand
Epibiont communities of loggerhead marine turtles (Caretta caretta) in the western Mediterranean: influence of geographic and ecological factors
The epibiont assemblages from loggerhead turtles in the western Mediterranean are similar to those from Central Mediterranean (CM), but significantly different from turtles surveyed in the eastern Mediterranean and the Atlantic. Expand
