Abstract Rich samples of benthic Peracarida collected from abyssal plains of the Angola Basin (South Atlantic) contained several new and rare asellote isopods. In this contribution, Eurycope tumidicarpus n. sp. is described from well-preserved specimens. This species is remarkable because the second pereopod has an enlarged carpus, and pereopod 4 is shaped like the posterior swimming legs. New specimens of Acanthocope galathea Wolff, 1962 (Fig. 1a) are used for a redescription, hitherto unknown…

Two new species of the genus Eurycope (Isopoda, Munnopsidae) from Icelandic waters
TLDR
Two new species of the genus Eurycope, known only from localities south of the Greenland−Scotland Ridge, are described, characterized by possessing dorsomedial acute projections on pereo− nites 5–7, which is unusual for the genus.
Review and phylogeny of the Recent Polycopidae (Ostracoda, Cladocopina), with descriptions of nine new species, one new genus, and one new subgenus from the deep South Atlantic
TLDR
Eight new species from the DIVA II expedition of the RV “Meteor” at the Cape, Angola, and Guinea basins are presented here, and a key to genera of the family Polycopidae is provided.
Acanthocopinae (Crustacea: Isopoda: Munnopsididae) from the Southern Ocean deep sea with the description of Acanthocope eleganta sp. nov.
Acanthocope eleganta sp. nov. is described from the abyssal Southern Ocean near the Southern Ocean Peninsula. The new species differs from others in the following: a slender dorsomedial spine on the
Distinguishing cryptic species in Antarctic Asellota (Crustacea: Isopoda) - a preliminary study of mitochondrial DNA in Acanthaspidia drygalskii
TLDR
The molecular data support the monophyly of all six species analysed, but there is only limited evidence for the interspecific relationships between the species.
Results of the DIVA-1 Expedition of RV "Meteor" (Cruise M48:1): Three new species of Munnopsidae Sars, 1864 from abyssal depths of the Angola Basin (Crustacea: Isopoda: Asellota)*
TLDR
Three new species of Munnopsidae are described from the deep sea of the Angola Basin in the southeast Atlantic, including E. monodon and E. denticollis sp.

A Systematic Revision of the Deep-Sea Subfamily Lipomerinæ of the Isopod Crustacean Family Munnopsidæ
TLDR
The Lipomersinae were the most significantly monophyletic group of the munnopsid taxa, and a consensus tree of all possible cladograms confirmed the monophyly of the Lipomerinae.
A REVISION OF THE GENUS EURYCOPE (ISOPODA, ASELLOTA) WITH DESCRIPTIONS OF THREE NEW GENERA
TLDR
The type-genus Eurycope is revised, and three new genera are proposed to contain some of the species removed from it, permitting more precise generic placement of other species.
