Memoirs of Museum Victoria 63(2): 129–173. Forty-fi ve species of Nannastacidae were identifi ed in collections in Museum Victoria from eastern Bass Strait and the south-eastern Australian slope. Twenty-eight are described as new: Campylaspis anae, C. angelae, C. australiensis, C. edenensis, C. grossui, C. halei, C. hirsuta, C… 
On the family Nannastacidae (Crustacea, Cumacea) from the Australian Museum collection
108 species and 10 genera of Nannastacidae were identified in collections of the Australian Museum from samples around Australia; 48 are described as new species, and the following 15 species are newly recorded from Australia.
Eleven new species and a new genus of Diastylidae (Crustacea: Cumacea) from Australia and one new species from Canada
Keys to all Australian diastylid species are provided, as are global keys to all species of Diastylopsis and Paradiastylis.
New Zealand Ceratocumatidae and Nannastacidae (Crustacea: Cumacea)
The cumacean fauna of New Zealand has been little studied, and recent collecting on the Chatham Rise and ChallengerPlateau has yielded many new species and new genera. The first record of the family
A new deep-sea genus of Nannastacidae (Crustacea, Cumacea) from the Lucky Strike hydrothermal vent field (Azores Triple Junction, Mid-Atlantic Ridge)
This is the first cumacean species that could be considered, at the moment, as endemic from hydrothermal vent areas, and a key for the currently known genera of the family Nannastacidae is provided and the taxonomic position of some genera is discussed.
A new Styloptocuma species (Crustacea, Cumacea) from hydrothermal vent fields of the Lau and North Fiji basins (West Pacific)
Affiliation to known families tends to indicate that the modern vent cumacean fauna may have originated from the surrounding deep-sea environment but also from the shallow-water vents or cold seeps, which acted as refugia during past global anoxic events in the deep sea.
Cumaceans (Crustacea) from the Bellingshausen Sea and off the western Antarctic Peninsula: a deep-water link with fauna of the surrounding oceans
The presence in the deepest sampling sites of species shared with faunas of surrounding oceans suggests a link between these faunaas and those of deep Antarctic waters.
A New Record of Campylaspis fusiformis (Crustacea: Cumacea: Nannastacidae) from Korea
Campylaspis fusiformis Gamo, 1960 belonging to the family Nannastacidae is newly recorded to Korean fauna, which mainly occurs in the Korean and Japanese waters.


New deep-sea Nannastacidae (Crustacea, Cumacea) from the Eastern Pacific collected by R.V. 'Vema'
Five new species of Procampylaspis Bonnier, 1896 and a new genus and species, Vemacumella heardi, are described from material collected by R.V. ‘Vema’ from the eastern Pacific coast of South America from 1958 to 1962.
Composition and diversity of Crustacea Isopoda of the southeastern Australian continental slope
Cumacea (Crustacea) de la compagne EPOS 3 du R.V. Polarstern en mer de Weddell, Antarctique
Qualitatively, between 200 and 2000 m there are three patterns of species distribution: species with a large depth range (200 to 1000–2000 m), deep-water species which inhabit deposits around 500 m, and species living from 200 to 500–600 m.
New Cumacea (Crustacea: Peracarida) from shallow waters of Indonesia
Six new species of Cumacea from Indonesia are described: Campylaspis calmani n.sp., Cumella alinae n.sp., C.bunakenensis n.sp, Nannastacus antipai n.sp., N. mitreae n.sp. and Paradiastylis
In this paper Epileucon is reduced to a subgenus of Leucon as proposed by Bacescu (1988), and the species ofLeucon are further apportioned among the subgenera Leu Con Kroyer, Macrauloleucon, new sub genus, Crymoleu Con, newSubgenus, and Alytoleucon; and the genus Coricuma Watling and Breedy is added to this family.
High species richness in the shallow marine waters of south-east Australia
The benthlc infauna in 3 areas along 50 km of the coast of Vlctoria, south-east Australia, was investigated and shows that species richness may be as high in shallow water as in the deep sea.
