  author={C{\'e}dric D’UDEKEM D’ACOZ},
An examination of morphological characters of the Liljeborgiidae reveals that these imcalceolated gammaromorphic amphipods share a number of putative plesiomorphic characters with the Melphidippoidea and the Oedicerotoidea. The Liljeborgiidae are subdivided in two subfamilies: the Idunellinae subfam. nov. for Idunella G.O. S a r s , 1 8 9 4 sensu lato (including Listriella J.L. B a r n a r d , 1 9 5 4 ) and Sextonia C h e v r e u x , 1 9 2 0 , and tile Liljeborgiinae S t e b b in g , 1 8 9 9…

The genus Charcotia Chevreux, 1906 in the Southern Ocean, with the description of a new species (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Lysianassoidea).

An analysis of a part of the mitochondrial COI gene of Charcotia indicates thatCharcotia obesa sensu lato, consists of two genetically distant clades that fulfil the criteria of genetic species.

Two new Pseudorchomene species from the Southern Ocean, with phylogenetic remarks on the genus and related species (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Lysianassoidea: Lysianassidae: Tryphosinae)

Two new lysianassoid amphipods of the genus Pseudorchomene Schellenberg, 1926 from the Southern Ocean are described and molecular data indicate the existence of a welldefined clade comprising P. debroyeri and P. lophorachis.

A new species of Salentinella Ruffo, 1947 from a thermo-mineral cave in southern Spain, with comments on the systematic position of the family Salentinellidae (Amphipoda)

A new species of the stygobiont amphipod genus Salentinella Ruffo, 1947 is described from a thermo-mineral cave of Granada, southern Spain, and it is revealed that a simple callynophore is present on the antennule in both sexes of salentinellids.

A phylogeny and classification of the Senticaudata subord. nov. Crustacea: Amphipoda).

The Amphipoda includes a large clade defined by the presence of a previously unrecognised synapomorphy, apical robust setae on the rami of uropods 1-2, which is introduced for the first time in am-phipod classification, the level parvorder between infraorder and superfamily.

The present monograph includes general systematic considerations on the family Epimeriidae, a revision of the genus Epimeria Costa in Hope, 1851 in the Southern Ocean, and a shorter account on

A redescription of the type species of Oedicerina Stephensen, 1931 (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Oedicerotidae) and the description of two new species

The poorly known species Oedicerina ingolfi Stephensen, 1931 is redescribed, based on new material from the Norwegian Sea, raising the number of species in the genus to five.

The amphipod (Crustacea: Peracarida) fauna of the Aegean Sea, and comparison with those of the neighbouring seas

Examination of sampled material and review of the relevant literature revealed the presence of 299 benthic and 46 pelagic amphipod species from the Aegean Sea. Two of the species identified, Caprella

Cryptic species in a well-known habitat: applying taxonomics to the amphipod genus Epimeria (Crustacea, Peracarida)

This study represents the first successful implementation of the recently proposed concept of taxonomics, using data from high-throughput technologies for integrative taxonomic studies, allowing the highest level of confidence for both biodiversity and ecological research.



On Liljeborgia fissicornis (M. Sars, 1858) and three related new species from Scandinavia, with a hypothesis on the origin of the group fissicornis

The large and common Scandinavian amphipod Liljeborgia fissicornis, which is specific to cold waters, derives from ancestors living on the continental shelf of the Southern Ocean, which would have adapted to deep-sea environments, losing their eyes completely.

Crustacea Amphipoda Gammaridea da Praia de Piedade-Jaboatão dos Guararapes – Pernambuco - Brasil.

A total of eight species were identified belonjing to 6 families, varying from 2,0 mm to 9,5 mm long, and the most abundant family was Atylidae, mainly, Atylus taupo, registered by the first time to the area.


In the material of amphipods collected from the Libyan coasts in 1975-76, 125 species were identified. They belong to 27 families, from the total of 34 families mentioned by Ruffo (editor), for the

During three expeditions with the RVs Meteor and Polarstern more than sixty thousand peracarids were sampled from the deep Arctic Ocean by means of an epibenthic sledge, and no significant decrease in species number with depth or latitude could be observed.

A revision of the genus Pandalus (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Pandalidae)

The genus Pandalus Leach, 1814, is revised based upon the abundant material from collections in various museums or institutions in the world. Altogether 20 species are recognized which appear to form

Reproductive biology of a deposit-feeding amphipod, Casco bigelowi, with extended parental care

It is concluded that for C. bigelowi, the delay of recruitment into the winter months with low predation pressure and the large offspring size at this time are major advantages gained by extended parental care.
