Forty three species of leptocheliids are known worldwide. In the American region only eight species have been described from the Western Atlantic, while for the Eastern Pacific none have been described, suggesting that the diversity of this family has been severely underestimated in this region. Here we describe the first species of Leptochelia from the Eastern Pacific, Leptochelia mexicana n. sp., which is characterized by the males having a spiniform seta on the second segment of uropodal… Expand
Shells of Triphoroidea (Gastropoda) occupied by crustaceans in the western Atlantic
TLDR
Shells of the newtoniellid Retilaskeya emersonii were occupied by the tanaidacean Pagurotanais bouryi and one hermit crab, and possibly by the amphipod Ampithoe sp. Expand

Tanaidaceans (Crustacea: Malacostraca: Peracarida) from soft-sediment habitats off Israel, Eastern Mediterranean
TLDR
Of the eight species of Apseudomorpha, one, a species of Leviapseudes, is new to the Mediterranean, and probably to science, but the damaged immature material precludes description and diagnosis, and the continued presence in this region of the Erythrean species Cristapseudes omercooperi was confirmed.

Shallow water tanaidaceans (Crustacea: Peracarida: Tanaidacea) from New Caledonia and the Loyalty Islands
TLDR
The Pacific collections by the MUSORSTOM campaigns of the Paris Museum over the last twenty years include a total of four species of Tanaidacea from shallow waters of the New Caledonia region and all new to science, including a species with unusual cheliped carpus morphology which is placed in a new genus as Konarus cheiris.

New Leptocheliidae (Crustacea: Tanaidacea: Tanaidomorpha) from Australian seagrass and macro-algal habitats, and a redescription of the poorly-known Leptochelia ignota from Sydney Harbour
TLDR
A new genus (Poorea n. gen.) and five new species collected from shallow macrophyte habitats are diagnosed and a rede-scription provided for the enigmatic tanaidacean Leptochelia ignota on the basis of specimens collected near the Sydney type locality. Expand
A re-assessment of Hexapleomera Dudich, 1931 (Crustacea: Tanaidacea: Tanaidae), with designation of three new species
The tanaid genus Hexapleomera has long been considered to be monotypic, comprising a cosmopolitan species predom-inantly commensal on turtles, or, more rarely, manatees. Recent discovery of materialExpand
Taxonomische und phylogenetische Untersuchungen über die Tanaidaceen (Crustacea)
TLDR
The taxonomy of the genera mentioned in the title is discussed as well as the taxonomic position of Typhlotanais longidactylus Shiino, and it is proposed that Leptochelia, Heterotanais, Hargeria, PseudoleptOChelia and PseudonototanaIS should be grouped together in the new family Leptokheliidae.

A new genus and two new species of leptocheliids from the marine shallow waters of Indonesia (Crustacea: Tanaidacea: Tanaidomorpha)
TLDR
A new genus and two new species of leptocheliids from the marine shallow waters of Indonesia are described and illustrated and the main characteristics of the new genus consist in the size and configuration of uropod (short and thick) and of the distosternal seta of pereopods III and IV carpus.

RECORDS OF AND OBSERVATIONS ON TANAIDACEANS (PERACARIDA) FROM SHALLOW WATERS OF THE CARIBBEAN COAST OF MEXICO
TLDR
Nine species have been known to occur in the Caribbean Basin and four species, Hexapleomera robusta (Moore), Leptochelia dubia (Kroyer), Sinelobus stanfordi (Richardson), and Zeuxo kurilensis (Kussakin & Tzareva) are widely distributed forms, occurring in two or more oceans. Expand
In the footsteps of Henrik Nikolaj Krøyer: the rediscovery and redescription of Leptochelia savignyi (Krøyer, 1842) sensu stricto (Crustacea: Tanaidacea: Leptocheliidae)
TLDR
To resolve confusion over attribution of northeast Atlantic populations to one or other of the earlier-described species, specimens from Madeira, the type locality of L. savignyi, have been analyzed in comparison with material from the western English Channel and northwest Spain. Expand
