A New Species of Freshwater Amphipods Echinogammarus (Amphipoda, Gammaridae) from Algeria
A new species of amphipod differing from other Echinogammarus species in the length of the first antenna, the setation of the third article of the mandibular palp, the merus and carpus of pereopods 5 with long setae only, and the exopodite of uropod 3 with numerous groups of long simple setae is described.
A review of Gammaridae (Crustacea: Amphipoda): the family extent, its evolutionary history, and taxonomic redefinition of genera
The first analysis of the family evolution in light of its phylogeny concluded that Protective dorsal pleonal projections occur scattered across the family and beyond, whereas lateral projections were limited to species of ancient lakes, so both structures were polyphyletic.
Distribution, ecology and conservation status of two endemic amphipods, Echinogammarus acarinatus and Fontogammarus dalmatinus, from the Dinaric karst rivers, Balkan Peninsula
The Balkan Peninsula is recognized to be one of the most important biodiversity hotspots worldwide. However, biogeographic patterns of its freshwater fauna are poorly understood due to the lack of
First record of Echinogammarus pungens (H. Milne Edwards, 1840) (Crustacea, Amphipoda) from Africa with the checklist of North African freshwater gammarids
Another species, Echinogammarus pungens (H. Milne Edwards, 1840) was found in the river Titria (Oued Titria), north-western Tunisia, in April 2010, extending the checklist of freshwater gammarid fauna of North Africa to 21 species.
Mouthpart Morphology of Three Sympatric Native and Nonnative Gammaridean Species: Gammarus pulex, G. fossarum, and Echinogammarus berilloni (Crustacea: Amphipoda)
The hypothesis was that differences in the mode of feeding of the three species could be the reason for their coexistence and that these differences would be expressed in differences in mouthpart morphology, and the results of the SEM study demonstrate that there are indeed interspecific differences in details of the morphology of the feeding structures.
Distribution of the endemic amphipod species Echino-gammarus thoni ( Schäferna , 1922 ) in watercourses of the Balkan Peninsula
An overview of all records of the Balkan endemic Echinogammarus thoni is given for streams in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Albania, based on literature data and data from our
The river before damming: distribution and ecological notes on the endemic species Echinogammarus cari (Amphipoda: Gammaridae) in the Dobra River and its tributaries, Croatia
The downstream decrease in the relative abundance of E. cari could be related to the longitudinal decrease in conductivity and the increase of water temperature fluctuations, and the species is likely to become endangered.
Echinogammarus thoni ( Schaferna , 1922 )-a new gam-marid species ( Crustacea , Amphipoda ) in Serbia & Montenegro
Echinogammarus Stebbing, 1899 is a large genus, represented by some 50 species in European fauna, and comprising about 20 % of all Gammaridae species known from the continent. Members of the genus

The phylogenetic results revealed that the Gammaridae originated from the Tethyan region in the Cretaceous, and split into three morphologically and geographically distinct lineages by the end of the Paleocene, suggesting that environmental changes have played an important role in the diversification of Gammar family lineages.
Ectozoochory as a possible vector enhancing the spread of an alien amphipod Crangonyx pseudogracilis
It is concluded that C. pseudogracilis may be successfully transported by the waterfowl for short distances to other waterbodies and ectozoochory may be an important way of spreading the amphipods in areas where the hydrological network is poorly developed and not interconnected with artificial canals.
