Abstract During the expedition DIVersity of the abyssal Atlantic benthos (DIVA-1) with RV “Meteor” in July 2000, samples were taken at seven stations by means of an epibenthic sledge north of the Walvis Ridge in the Angola Basin off Namibia in 5125–5415 m depth. Two hundred and forty one species of Peracarida are identified from the material so far. Dominant elements of the peracarid fauna were Isopoda, which were most abundant and diverse, 100 species were identified from 1326 individuals… Expand

Diversity and distribution of peracarid crustaceans (Malacostraca) from the abyss adjacent to the Kuril-Kamchatka Trench
During the KuramBio expedition in 2012, macrobenthos samples were collected with an epibenthic sledge from 12 sites on the abyssal plain of the Northwest Pacific Basin adjacent to the Kuril-KamchatkaExpand
Community structure and species diversity of Harpacticoida (Crustacea: Copepoda) at two sites in the deep sea of the Angola Basin (Southeast Atlantic)
TLDR
This study demonstrated significant differences in regional-scale harpacticoid community structures within a single deep-sea basin that would usually be considered a uniform and stable habitat. Expand
Diversity and distribution of peracarid crustaceans (Malacostraca) from the continental slope and the deep-sea basin of the Sea of Japan
TLDR
Three distinct faunal assemblages were identified, distributed on the slope, lower slope and at the pseudo-abyssal stations, and the key peracarid species for each of them were determined. Expand
Diversity and distributional patterns of Polychaeta in the deep South Atlantic
This study provides new information about the composition, diversity and zoogeography of abyssal polychaetes in the little-studied South Eastern Atlantic (Angola Basin). During the austral winter ofExpand
Composition and distribution of bivalves of the abyssal plain adjacent to the Kuril–Kamchatka Trench (Pacific Ocean)
TLDR
The high diversity and richness of the bivalve fauna on the abyssal plain in the Kuril–Kamchatka Trench area may be connected to the favorable feeding conditions in this, one of the most highly productive areas of the Pacific Ocean. Expand
Abyssal macrofauna of the Kuril–Kamchatka Trench area (Northwest Pacific) collected by means of a camera–epibenthic sledge
Abstract Abyssal macrofaunal composition of 21 epibenthic sledge hauls from twelve stations taken in the Kuril–Kamchatka Trench (KKT) and at the adjacent abyssal plain, Northwest Pacific, isExpand
Bivalve molluscs of the abyssal zone of the Sea of Okhotsk: Species composition, taxonomic remarks, and comparison with the abyssal fauna of the Pacific Ocean
Abstract SokhoBio expedition Until recently hardly anything was known about the abyssal bivalve fauna of the Sea of Okhotsk, which communicates with the Pacific Ocean via many straits between theExpand
Diversity and distribution of Ischnomesidae (Crustacea: Isopoda: Asellota) along the Kuril-Kamchatka Trench – A genetic perspective
TLDR
The diversity and distribution of the asellote isopod family Ischnomesidae in the hadal and abyssal of the Kuril-Kamchatka Trench and adjacent Sea of Okhotsk and the neighboring northwest Pacific Basin is investigated to imply that the KKT serves as an isolation barrier for poorly dispersing benthic species like the herein studied Is Schnomesidae. Expand
Composition and abundance of epibenthic-sledge catches in the South Polar Front of the Atlantic
TLDR
Numbers of specimens across different macrofaunal taxa and especially of peracarid crustaceans underscored by far those from South Ocean sites at higher latitudes in the Weddell Sea, contrasting the largely high surface productivity of the area. Expand
Abyssal Solenogastres (Mollusca, Aplacophora) from the Northwest Pacific: Scratching the Surface of Deep-Sea Diversity Using Integrative Taxonomy
Solenogastres (Aplacophora) is a small clade of marine, shell-less worm-molluscs with close to 300 valid species. Their distribution ranges across all oceans, and whereas the vast majority of speciesExpand

On abyssal isopods (Crustacea: Isopoda: Asellota) from the Angola Basin: Eurycope tumidicarpus n. sp. and redescription of Acanthocope galathea Wolff, 1962
TLDR
Rich samples of benthic Peracarida collected from abyssal plains of the Angola Basin (South Atlantic) contained several new and rare asellote isopods, including Eurycope tumidicarpus n. Expand
Abundance, diversity and community patterns of epibenthic- and benthic-boundary layer peracarid crustaceans at 75°N off East Greenland
TLDR
Interestingly the highest number of individuals was sampled at 1,525-depth (23,098 individuals); however, at about 2,680-m depth the number of peracarids collected was still much higher than at comparatively shallower stations, for example, in 317-m Depth (6,792). Expand
The Desmosomatidae (Isopoda, Asellota) of the Gay Head-Bermuda Transect
TLDR
Present information indicates that nearly all the genera in the family Desmosomatidae are cosmopolitan or will prove to be so, and Species, on the other hand, have limited distributions. Expand

TLDR
The new species can easily be distinguished from Vemathambema elongata by its larger opercular pleopods and deeper constrictions of pereonites two to four. Expand
