The taxonomy of the amphipod family Leucothoidae has been reviewed and changes are proposed. Currently, there are 139 described species of leucothoids in two clades. The anamixid clade contains 39 species and the leucothoid clade contains 100 species. For the first time in a single work, diagnoses, distributions, and available host data are presented for all extant species of the Leucothoidae. The genus Leucothoella has been suppressed based on morphological similarities to the genus Leucothoe… 

An analysis of the genus Leucothoe Leach, 1814 (Amphipoda: Leucothoidae) in New Zealand, with the description of two new species symbiotic with ascidians and sponges

A key to the New Zealand species of Leucothoe as well as a discussion of their host-specificity and ecology are also provided.

NA phylogeny of Ryukyus Leucothoidae (Crustacea: Amphipoda)

It is demonstrated that host specificity appears to evolve rapidly in sibling species in this family of amphipods and the separation of the family into two clades is confirmed.

DNA phylogeny of Ryukyus Leucothoidae (Crustacea: Amphipoda)

It is demonstrated that host specificity appears to evolve rapidly in sibling species in this family of amphipods and the separation of the family into two clades is confirmed.

A New Species of the Genus Anamixis (Amphipoda: Leucothoidae) from the Gulf of California, Mexico

A new species of the genus Anamixis Stebbing is described from a collector of puerulus larvae of spiny lobsters, anchored at Punta Coyote, Gulf of California, Mexico, the first record in the genus for Mexican Pacific.

A Phylogeny and Classification of the Amphipoda with the establishment of the new order Ingolfiellida (Crustacea: Peracarida).

A cladistic tree, based on morphology, is presented illustrating the relationships of the Amphipoda at parvorder level.

Leucothoid amphipod and terebellid polychaete symbiosis with description of a new species of the genus Leucothoe Leach, 1814 (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Leucothoidae)

This is the first record of a symbiotic association between Leucothoidae and Terebellidae and a hypothesis of the phylogenetic position of L. vermicola sp.

Amphipoda (crustacea) from Palau, Micronesia: families Dexaminidae, Eusiridae, Hyalidae, Ischyroceridae, Leucothoidae and Lysianassidae.

Thirteen species of amphipod in the families Dexaminidae, Eusiridae, Hyalidae, Ischyroceridae, Leucothoidae, and Lysianassidae are recorded from Palau in Micronesia and are new to science and are described and figured.

Leucothoe kawesqari, a new amphipod from Bernardo O’Higgins National Park (Chile), with remarks on the genus in the Magellan Region (Crustacea, Peracarida)

A new species of Leucothoe kawesqari is described, which can be distinguished from other species of the genus in the Southern Ocean by having eyes present, epimeral plates with no setae, anterior coxae not acutely produced or excavate.

Commensal Leucothoidae (Crustacea, Amphipoda) of the Ryukyu Archipelago, Japan. Part I: ascidian-dwellers

Seven new species are described in two genera with valuable location data and host records of ascidian-dwelling Leucothoidae of the Ryukyu Archipelago, Japan.
