Revision of Hesione Savigny in Lamarck, 1818 (Annelida, Errantia, Hesionidae)
To improve the knowledge of the genus, available specimens in the larger collections of the world were studied under a standardised approach, parapodial/neurochaetal features were defined following previous guidelines, and pigmentation patterns were reassessed. Expand
Ecological Significance of the Association between Stomopneustes variolaris (Echinoidea) and Lumbrineris latreilli (Polychaeta) from Visakhapatnam Coast, India
A new association between the sea urchin Stomopneustes variolaris and the polychaete Lumbrineris latreilli is reported based on the specimens collected intertidally at Bay of Bengal. Expand
A new species of Monocheres Stock (Copepoda, Siphonostomatoida, Asterocheridae) from shallow waters off Florida, USA: an unexpected discovery
The biology and feeding habits of the polychaete containing this specimen suggests that the copepod was ingested as an ectosymbiont from sponges or coral but it is also possible that it was consumed from an ophiurid echinoderm, allowing an expansion of the genus geographical distribution in the northwestern Atlantic.

Morphological and Molecular Evidence for a New Record of Hesione cf. picta (Polychaeta: Hesionida) from the Western Coast of the Gulf of Thailand
The results based on partial sequences of 28S, 18S and 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) genes were highly consistent with the morphological taxonomy and may contribute to the knowledge of the systematic biology and biodiversity of family Hesionidae. Expand
A taxonomic guide to the brittle-stars (Echinodermata, Ophiuroidea) from the State of Paraíba continental shelf, Northeastern Brazil
Abstract We provide the first annotated checklist of ophiuroids from the continental shelf of the State of Paraíba, northeastern Brazil. Identification keys and taxonomic diagnoses for 23 species,Expand
Association between the polynoid Malmgreniella variegata (Polychaeta: Polynoidae) and Ophionereis reticulata (Ophiuroidea: Ophionereididae) first record to the Southeastern Caribbean
The worms Malmgreniella variegata has been found as commensal of Ophionereis reticulata in Florida and Belize.  Here we report the association in Playa Piscina (Arapo Islands), Venezuela. Rev. Biol.Expand
New host for Dissodactylus crinitichelis (Decapoda, Pinnotheridae): First record of occurrence on Mellita quinquiesperforata (Echinodermata, Echinoidea) (Decapoda; Echinodermata)
This paper presents the first report on the association between Dissodactylus crinitichelis Moreira, 1901 and Mellita quinquiesperforata, 1778 based on specimens found in Brazilian waters, and suggests that the pinnotherid has a non-obligatory symbiotic association with M. qu Inquiesper forata.

Association of the commensal scaleworm Gastrolepidia clavigera (Polychaeta: Polynoidae) with holothurians near the coast of South Vietnam
A sexual size dimorphism is characteristic of G. clavigera, with females larger than males, and the correlation between size of holothurian hosts and size of their commensals was not observed. Expand
A new species of Ophryotrocha (Polychaeta : Dorvilleidae) commensal in Geryon longipes (Crustacea : Brachyura) from the Western Mediterranean Sea
A new species of Dorvilleidae, Ophryotrocha mediterranea, commensal in the branchial chambers of the deep-water crab Geryon longipes, is characterized by the presence of seven pairs of denticulate maxillary plates in the jaw apparatus, and especially the 7th plate which is more elongate, markedly bidentate and situated at a different level.
