External organs associated with the male gonopore are described for 29 species covering for the first time all seven currently acknowledged, extant families of the orders Lophogastrida, Stygiomysida, and Mysida, and all ten subfamilies of the Mysidae (Mysida). The gonopores are located throughout on the structures of the coxa of the eighth thoracopods. The three orders are consistently differentiated based on their male genital characteristics. Species of the Stygiomysida genera Stygiomysis… 

Taxonomic Review of the Orders Mysida and Stygiomysida (Crustacea, Peracarida)

With the inclusion of DNA sequence data of ribosomal genes, sister group relationships between Stygiomysida, Lophogastrida, and Mictacea within the Peracarida are observed, which supports a classification of the Stygiumysida as a separate order removed from the Mysida.

Description of the ‘stargazer mysid’ Mysidopsis zsilaveczi sp. nov. (Mysida, Mysidae, Leptomysinae) from the Cape Peninsula, South Africa

This new species from southern Africa raises the number of southern African Mysidopsis species to nine, confirming the coastal waters of this subcontinent as being one of the major hotspots of diversity in this genus.

After 100 years: a detailed view of an eumalacostracan crustacean from the Upper Jurassic Solnhofen Lagerstätte with raptorial appendages unique to Euarthropoda

The Solnhofen Konservat‐Lagerstätte yields a great number of remarkably preserved fossils of eumalacostracan crustaceans that help us understand the early radiation of several groups with modern

Neither leg nor jaw—nor always the same: a critical revision of the eumalacostracan maxilliped

The musculature and exoskeletal structures of the first thoracopods in Anaspidacea, Euphausiacea, Lophogastrida, Mysida and Stygiomysida are studied using three-dimesional reconstruction of laser scanning microscopy and micro-computed tomography data, and the term ‘maxilliped’ is rejected and the peracaridan maxilliped is proposed as a distinction.

The Mysidae (Crustacea: Peracarida: Mysida) in fresh and oligohaline waters of the Mediterranean. Taxonomy, biogeography, and bioinvasion.

A census of Mysidae yielded a total of twelve species plus two non-nominotypical subspecies found so far in fresh and oligohaline waters of the Mediterranean, all belonging to the subfamily Mysinae, and the biogeographical pattern points to a primary origin in the brackish Paratethys; solely the cave-dwelling T. vjetrenicensis has more ancient roots in the Tethyan Sea.

Amazonia versus Pontocaspis: a key to understanding the mineral composition of mysid statoliths (Crustacea: Mysida)

The mineral composition of statoliths in 169 species or subspecies of the family Mysidae on a worldwide scale is determined, proposing that fluorite-bearing marine ancestors penetrated freshwaters in Tethyan and Paratethyan basins, where they developed precipitation of vaterite.
