The shallow water cumacean fauna of Australia is relatively well known, particularly from the southern coasts. However, recent investigations in the collections of the Australian Museum and Museum Victoria have yielded 12 new species and one new genus of diastylid cumaceans, most from continental shelf and slope depths of Australia; one new species in Museum Victoria is from Canadian waters. The new genus Austroleptostylis is described, and the species Leptostylis recalvastra Hale, 1945 is…

The Cumacean (Crustacea: Peracarida) Genus Petalosarsia (Pseudocumatidae) from the Pacific Ocean
The species richness of Petalosarsia in the Sulu Sea and the Indo-West Pacific suggests a wide distribution of ancestors of Pseudocumatidae around the ancient Tethys Sea, with the Ponto-Caspian region located near the center.

Life history of Nippoleucon hinumensis (Crustacea: Cumacea: Leuconidae) in Seto Inland Sea of Japan. II. Non-diapausing subpopulation
The non-diapausing mode of life in N. hinumensis may represent the ancestral life mode before this species acquired a summer diapause mechanism and is maintained through mating of non- diapausing males with ordinary-sized ovigerous females.
The growth, development and reproduction of a deep sea cumacean (Crustacea: Peracarida)
A single sample of over 1000 individuals of Leuconjonesi Bishop, 1982, taken at a depth of about 1500 m on the continental slope off Surinam, was studied, finding that preparatory and inter-brood females were morphologically separable; vitellogenesis was restricted to these instars.
