Thirteen species of amphipod in the families Dexaminidae (1), Eusiridae (1), Hyalidae (1), Ischyroceridae (1), Leucothoidae (8) and Lysianassidae (1) are recorded from Palau in Micronesia. Of these, Ventojassa palauensis sp. nov., Leucothoe beobeldabensis sp.nov., L. pseudepidemos sp. nov., L. serratissima sp. nov., L. tumida sp. nov., L. whiteae sp. nov and Paranamixis dentidactylus sp. nov. are new to science and are described and figured. 
Red Sea Leucothoidae (Crustacea: Amphipoda) including new and re-described species
Examination of leucothoid amphipods of the Red Sea has revealed seven species not previously reported from this location. Leucothoe minoculis sp. nov., Leucothoe pansa sp. nov., Leucothoe reimeri sp.
Leucothoe eltoni sp. n., a new species of commensal leucothoid amphipod from coral reefs in Raja Ampat, Indonesia (Crustacea, Amphipoda)
Abstract A new species of leucothoid amphipod, Leucothoe eltoni sp. n., is described from coral reefs in Raja Ampat, Indonesia where it inhabits the branchial chambers of solitary tunicates. With an
First record of the genus Ventojassa Barnard, 1970 (Amphipoda, Ischyroceridae) from Japan
TLDR
The ischyrocerid amphipod Ventojassa dentipalma Kim & Kim, 1991 was recently collected from Otsuchi Bay, northeast Japan, and represents the second record of the species as well as the first Japaneserecord of the genus.
The distribution of benthic amphipod crustaceans in Indonesian seas
TLDR
The results indicated that habitat rather than biogeography determines amphipod distribution in Indonesia, and future research needs to sample more habitats, and consider habitat in conservation planning.
Biodiversity and Biogeography of Amphipod Crustaceans
TLDR
A review of the tax, biology, and ecology of amphipod crustaceans and their role in global biodiversity and fauna suggests that the Wallacea region and the Indonesian amphipoda fauna are under-represented.

TLDR
Commensal leucothoid amphipods have been collected from coral rubble samples throughout the Ryukyu Archipelago, Japan and seven new species are described in two genera, including Paranamixis misakiensis Thomas, 1997.

TLDR
This is the first significant record of cool-water species of any marine group in Hawaii, suggesting that nestlers are less successful in completing the long journey from the cool waters of northern continents.

TLDR
Fiji is characterised by a higher percentage of domicolo~ls forms than any other well studied island group and Forty percent of Fijian taxa are new to science but this figure will undoubtedly be lowered when more Indo-Pacific island groups are explored.

TLDR
