Abstract A new clausidiid copepod was found living in galleries of ghost shrimps Neocallichirus grandimana (Gibbes, 1850) in Natal, Brazil. The new species resembles to Clausidium senegalense Humes, 1957 and Clausidium vancouverense (Haddon, 1912) in the armature of P2–P5 of the female, and shares with Clausidium senegalense similar segmentation and armature of the antenna and maxilla of the female. Nevertheless, it can be easily distinguished from its congeners by the unique characteristics… 

A new species of Clausidium Kossmann, 1874 (Copepoda: Cyclopoida) associated with ghost shrimps from the Persian Gulf, including female-male interlocking mechanisms and remarks on host specificity

A new clausidiid copepod was found associated with the ghost shrimp Neocallichirus jousseaumei (Nobili) in the Persian Gulf and Structures of taxonomic importance that exhibit complex shapes were scanned to generate 3-D prints that gave valuable insights about female/male interlocking mechanisms.

Two New Species of Clausidiidae (Copepoda, Poecilostomatoida) from Korea

Two new species of Clausidiidae, each belonging to the genus Clausidium Kossmann, 1875 and Hippomolgus G. O. Sars, 1917, are described from Korea, the first record on the genera Clausidium and Hippo-gus in the West Pacific.

The species of Clausidium Kossmann, 1875 is recorded for the first time parasitic on shallow water burrowing callianassid shrimp Pestarella candida from Kazachiya Inlet (Sevastopol’) of Crimean Peninsula, representing the first record of the species and the genus from the Black Sea.

First record of ghost shrimp Corallianassa coutierei (Nobili, 1904) (Decapoda: Axiidea: Callichiridae) from Indian waters

A comprehensive checklist of the infraorder Axiidea is prepared based on previous records from Indian waters and a Callichiridae ghost shrimp species Corallianassa coutierei is recorded and described here for the first time from the Indian waters.

DNA Barcoding of Scavenging Amphipod Communities at Active and Inactive Hydrothermal Vents in the Indian Ocean

The addition of 356 sequences strongly increases the number of amphipod barcodes in reference databases and provides for the first time COI barcodes for Cleonardo neuvillei Chevreux, 1908, and the genera Haptocallisoma, Pseudonesimus, and Valettiopsis.

A new species of the Clausidium Kossmann, 1874 copepods is described, illustrated and provided by Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope photo on the basis of specimens from the gill chamber of



Host selection of the symbiotic copepod Clausidium dissimile in two sympatric populations of ghost shrimp

Investigation of factors that affect the density of C. dissimile in the field and in the laboratory supported observations from the field in that C. Dissimile significantly preferred S. trilobata over L. louisianensis, but unlike the field data, copepods did not appear to prefer female over male hosts when size was held constant.

Population biology of the burrowing shrimp Callichirus seilacheri(Decapoda: Callianassidae) in northern Chile

The main breeding period lasted from autumn to winter (May to August, peaking in June), and co-occurred with decreasing water temperatures and the presence of a sediment layer covering the burrows.

Assessment of Congo red as a fluorescence marker for the exoskeleton of small crustaceans and the cuticle of polychaetes

The Congo red staining turned out to be rather efficient and yielded intensively fluorescing structures, which made a very detailed visualization of the external morphology of small crustaceans and polychaetes by confocal laser scanning microscopy possible.


Poresta razón, se analizó la influencia del tamaño y del sexo de C. seilacheri, y la prevalencia y abundancia media de infección para ambos parásitos mostró variación durante el periodo evaluado sobre susmetazoos parasitarios.
