Three Gulf-wide cruises were examined for cryptonisci and the data analysed for the effect of environmental vanables on cryptoniscid abundance. Location, season and location-season interaction accounted for 80% of the variability, with each accounting for 65, 25 and 10% of the explained vanabhty respectively. More cryptonisci were found offshore in the northern and northwestern areas of the Gulf and autumn had the highest abundance. In decreasing order, depth, temperature, salinity, hght and… 
A review of Epipenaeon ingens Nobili, 1906 (Isopoda: Bopyridae) host species and documentation of a new host, Metapenaeopsis stridulans (Alcock, 1905) (Decapoda: Penaeidae)
TLDR
Infestation of E. ingens caused a characteristic bulge of the branchial chamber, growth retardation, and degeneration of the sex organs, but had no effect on the host weight.
The Global Diversity of Parasitic Isopods Associated with Crustacean Hosts (Isopoda: Bopyroidea and Cryptoniscoidea)
TLDR
Most epicarideans areknown from relatively shallow waters, although some bopyrids are known from depths below 4000 m, and it is predicted that the Central Indian Ocean and East Asian Sea hold a wealth of undescribed species, reflecting knowledge of host diversity patterns.
Occurrence, morphology and molecular characterisation of Bopyrid parasite Epipenaeon ingens Nobili, 1906 (Isopoda: Bopyridae)
TLDR
Intra specific analysis revealed that E. ingens species detected in the present study can be easily distinguished from the other genospecies of bopyrids.
Prevalence, reproduction and morphology of the parasitic isopod Athelges takanoshimensis Ishii, 1914 (Isopoda: Bopyridae) from Hong Kong hermit crabs
TLDR
Investigation of the prevalence, reproduction, and morphology of A. takanoshimensis in Hong Kong found parasitism has an influence on host sex ratio, and the first investigation of epicaridium larvae for this species is described using scanning electron microscopy.
A review of the genus Parapenaeon Richardson, 1904 (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae: Orbioninae), with description of three new species from China
Five species of the bopyrid genus Parapenaeon are reported from China, of which three are new to science, and one, Parapenaeon expansa Bourdon, 1979, is a new record. New species are Parapenaeon
PREVALENCE OF THE BOPYRID ISOPOD PROBOPYRUS PANDALICOLA IN THE GRASS SHRIMP, PALAEMONETES PUGIO, IN FOUR TIDAL CREEKS ON THE SOUTH CAROLINA-GEORGIA COAST
TLDR
Maximum prevalence was concurrent with peak gravidity for Moon River; thus, at this site the negative effect of this parasite on reproductive output may be greater and reduced egg production may affect grass shrimp abundance and ultimately the recruitment success of its predators.
Host Abundance, Sea-Grass Cover, and Temperature Predict Infection Rates of Parasitic Isopods (Bopyridae) on Caridean Shrimp
TLDR
Bopyrid infection rates were very low throughout the study area, and each isopod species was only ever recovered from a single host genus, suggesting a high degree of genus-level specificity.
Poleward range expansion of invasive bopyrid isopod, Orthione griffenis Markham, 2004, confirmed by establishment in Central British Columbia, Canada
TLDR
Steady infestation of mud shrimp on Calvert Island confirmed that the invasive bopyrid has successfully established itself in a novel host population 300 km further north than previously recorded, but with lower parasite prevalence than in the known invasive range.
The cryptogenic parasitic isopod Orthione griffenis Markham, 2004 from the eastern and western Pacific.
TLDR
The first record of O. griffenis from Chinese waters is reported based on collections made in the 1950s, which pre-date any records of the species from the United States by at least 20 years.
Prevalences of parasitized and hyperparasitized crabs near South Georgia
TLDR
It is suggested that parasitized crabs do not aggregate with unparasitized males, and between-year comparisons of parasite and hyperparasite prevalences were equivocal and failed to provide convincing evidence against parameter statlonanty and stability in the P. spinosissima-B.

TLDR
All species showed a high degree of variation in reproductive activity throughout the year; both the timing and relative heights of the peaks varied by species within and between geographic subdivisions of the Gulf.

TLDR
Freshwater shrimp, Palaemonetes paludosus, infected by the bopyrid isopod, Probopyrus pandalicola, occurred as far as 33 km upstream in many coastal rivers and canals throughout Florida, and host–parasite interactions appear to be unstable.
