We describe Hexapleomera urashima sp. nov. from the carapaces of loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) on Yakushi-ma Island, southwestern Japan, the primary nesting site for the North Pacific population of this turtle. Hexapleomera urashima closely resembles H. edgari Bamber collected from Australian loggerheads (South Pacific population), sharing a uropod with four articles and maxillipedal endites with distal spiniform setae, but differs in having the maxillipedal coxa with two simple… 
A new species of the genus Hexapleomera Dudich, 1931 from the South Korea, with molecular evidence (Crustacea, Tanaidacea, Tanaididae)
Two genetically-close populations differed in the setae on pleopod 3, the proximalSetae on the maxilliped coxa, and the ventral setae in pereopods 2–3, which showed that geographical distance affected the morphological divergence.
A new species of Zeuxo (Crustacea: Peracarida: Tanaidacea) from Japan, with remarks on carapace pigmentation as a potentially useful taxonomic character
Z. ezoensis specimens from four localities in Hokkaido showed Kimura 2-parameter divergences of 0–0.6–1.5% within and between populations, respectively, and the validity of using this pattern as a diagnostic character in Zeuxo taxonomy is discussed.
On Caretta caretta’s shell: first spatial analysis of micro- and macro-epibionts on the Mediterranean loggerhead sea turtle carapace
ABSTRACT The loggerhead sea turtle, Caretta caretta (Linnaeus, 1758), is the most common sea turtle species in the Mediterranean Sea, where it can experience severe anthropogenic impacts. Although C.
Tanaididae (Crustacea, Tanaidacea, Tanaidomorpha, Tanaidoidea) on a Floating Dock, West Beach, Adelaide, South Australia: Introduced or Indigenous?
The utility and need for detailed morphological and molecular data to resolve the taxonomy and biogeography of fouling and holdfast community tanaids, particularly those that have the demonstrated potential for a history of transport between geographically distant sites are underlines.
Re-evaluation of Morphological Diagnostic Characteristics of Hexapleomera Dudich, 1931 (Crustacea: Tanaidacea), with Description of a New Species
H. yokjidona is a new species of Hexapleomera and detailed morphological characteristics of both genders are described and a comprehensive comparison among the species of the genus is tabulated.
Sinelobus stromatoliticus sp. nov. (Peracarida: Tanaidacea) found within extant peritidal stromatolites
Living coastal stromatolites, layered structures formed by the microbially mediated precipitation of calcium carbonate, are scarce because of grazing and burrowing disruption by metazoans, amongst
First Complete Mitochondrial Genome of a Tanaidacean Crustacean (Arctotanais alascensis)
In a malacostracan phylogenetic tree reconstructed from mitogenome data, basal relationships were marginally supported or incongruent with the traditional morphology-based classification and the latest phylogenetic reconstructions from large transcriptomic datasets.
Comprehensive Transcriptome Sequencing of Tanaidacea with Proteomic Evidences for Their Silk
Two families of silk proteins that are conserved across the four superfamilies of Tanaidacea are identified, and the amino acid composition of the repetitive motifs of tanaidacean silk tends to be more hydrophilic, and therefore could be a useful resource in studying their unique adaptation of silk use in a marine environment.
