In recent years, extensive populations of burrowing mud shrimp have suddenly invaded the tidal flats in South Korea where clams, Ruditapes philippinarum, are harvested. These shrimp pose a serious threat to the clam industry along the west coast of South Korea. While conducting a mud shrimp monitoring program, we collected six female/male pairs of a pseudionine bopyrid isopod, Orthione griffenisMarkham, 2004, which in North America has been considered an introduced species from Asia that… 
A doubled down invasion of the northeast Pacific by the Asian mud shrimp, Upogebia major and its coevolved bopyrid isopod parasite, Orthione griffenis
Dramatic declines of the native northeast Pacific mud shrimp, Upogebia pugettensis over the last three decades have occurred in response to intense infestations by the Asian bopyrid isopod parasite,
Poleward range expansion of invasive bopyrid isopod, Orthione griffenis Markham, 2004, confirmed by establishment in Central British Columbia, Canada
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.
A review of three species of Hesperonoe (Annelida: Polynoidae) in Asia, with descriptions of two new species and a new record of Hesperonoe hwanghaiensis from Korea
Three Asian species of Hesperonoe (Annelida: Polynoidae) are presented and all seemed to be commensal with the burrowing mud shrimp Upogebia major in intertidal flats, except for an additional probable host of another upogebid shrimp Austinogebia narutensis for H. hwanghaiensis.
Redescription of the Mediterranean endemic parasitic isopod Anuropodione amphiandra (Codreanu, Codreanu & Pike, 1966) n. comb. (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae) from Munida rutllanti Zariquiey Alvarez, 1952, with new records from Turkey and a review of the genus Anuropodione Bourdon, 1967
Seven species of bopyrid isopods were previously known from Turkish Mediterranean waters; a purported eighth species, Orthione griffenis Markham, 2004, is based on incorrect identification and likely
Reproductive biology of the bopyrid isopod Robinione overstreeti, a branchial parasite of the ghost shrimp Callichirus islagrande (Decapoda: Callichiridae) in the Gulf of Mexico
ABSTRACT Robinione overstreeti is a bopyrid isopod endemic to the Gulf of Mexico that inhabits the branchial chamber of the ghost shrimp Callichirus islagrande. Information on this host–parasite
The first complete mitochondrial genome of a parasitic isopod supports Epicaridea Latreille, 1825 as a suborder and reveals the less conservative genome of isopods
The results cast doubt that Epicaridea Latreille, 1825 can be placed as an infraorder within the suborder Cymothoida, and Epicaridesa appears to also deserve subordinal rank.
Recent introductions reveal differential susceptibility to parasitism across an evolutionary mosaic
Investigation of how the estuarine white‐fingered mud crab has adapted to parasitism by an introduced rhizocephalan parasite that castrates its host suggests differences in host–parasite historical interaction can alter the consequences of parasite introductions in host populations.
Multistressor effects on marine organisms
Using nanofiltration membranes for the recovery of phosphorous with a second type of technology for the Recovery of nitrogen is suggest to be a viable process.


Is the Collapse of Mud Shrimp (Upogebia pugettensis) Populations Along the Pacific Coast of North America Caused by Outbreaks of a Previously Unknown Bopyrid Isopod Parasite (Orthione griffenis)?
A dramatic increase in prevalence of the recently discovered bopyrid isopod parasite, Orthione griffenis, likely introduced in the 1980s from Asia to the Pacific coast of North America, coincided
Biology of the Mud Shrimp Upogebia major (de Haan, 1841), with Particular Reference to Pest Management for Shrimp Control in Manila Clam Bed in the West Coast of Korea
The biology of this mud shrimp Upogebia major is reviewed in order to seek solutions to control the burrowing of these shrimps.
The Bopyridae (Crustacea: Isopoda) parasitic on thalassinideans (Crustacea: Decapoda) from China
Eight species among six genera of bopyrid isopods infesting thalassinideans from China are reported, with four species being new to science and extending their range north.
A new beach-hopper is described, Platorchestia parapacifica, collected from beaches in South Korea, and the results reconfirm the usefulness of molecular techniques for biodiversity studies of talitrids, including phylogenetic relationships, species boundaries, and divergence times.
The cryptogenic parasitic isopod Orthione griffenis Markham, 2004 from the eastern and western Pacific.
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.
New species and records of Bopyridae (Crustacea: Isopoda) infesting species of the genus Upogebia (Crustacea: Decapoda: Upogebiidae): The genera Orthione Markham, 1988, and Gyge Cornalia & Panceri, 1861
The genus Metabopyrus Shiino, 1939, is incorporated into Gyge Cornalia and Panceri, 1861, which is rediagnosed, and a key is given to the four known species.
An introduced Asian parasite threatens northeastern Pacific estuarine ecosystems
Six criteria reveal that Orthione is introduced to North America: its conspecificity with disjunct Asian populations, its earliest (1950s) collections in Asia, its late discovery among symbiotic species associated with Upogebia, its historical absence, and its appearance in North America coincident with extensive new ballast water traffic from Asia.
Parasitic Crustaceans and Marine Invasions: Two Case Studies from Kuroshio Region (extended abstract of the 7th Kuroshio Symposium)
Two case studies of marine invasions related with parasitic crustaceans from Kuroshio Region are shown, one is the native pinnotherid crab parasitizing introduced mussels and the other is the bopyrid isopod introduced from Asia to US Pacific Coast.
Some features of the biology of the mud shrimp Upogebia issaeffi (Balls, 1913) (Decapoda: Upogebiidae) from the subtidal zone of Vostok Bay, Sea of Japan

The study of the biology of the mud shrimp Upogebia issaeffi from the subtidal zone of the Vostok Bay revealed that this species occurs at depth of 1–6 m on mixed grounds of boulders, gravel, pebbles, shells of dead clams, and silty sand.
