Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology, number 573, 186 pages, 102 figures, 17 tables, 1996.—Thirty -four species (31 new and one left in open nomenclature) of benthic Myodocopina in 16 genera (one new) collected at depths of 204-2900 m on the SE Australian continental slope under the auspices of the Museum of Victoria and Victorian Institute of Marine Sciences, Australia, are… 
Ostracoda (Myodocopa) from Anchialine Caves and Ocean Blue Holes
The discovery of Deeveya inhabiting deeper, hydrologically-isolated waters in ocean blue holes, which are otherwise comparable to classical anchialine environments, has raised questions concerning the geographic limits to the anchialines habitat and its supposed reliance on terrestrial inputs.
A new subfamily and species of Ostracoda (Cylindroleberididae, Myodocopa) from the Chatham Rise (New Zealand)
A new subfamily Macroasteropteroninae is described, defined by the following autapomorphies: locking system on the shell; very small second segment on the second antenna (bearing no dorsal bristles); and a bulbous terminal part of the seventh limb, which, in addition, does not have any bell-bearing bristles.
Two new Sarsiellinae (Ostracoda: Myodocopa) from Ningaloo Reef (Western Australia), with a cladistic analysis of the subfamily and keys to genera
The results of two cladistic analyses of the Sarsiellinae subfamily resulted in seven equally parsimonious trees and the second in just one, and the majority rule of the first group of Trees and the tree from the second analysis are presented.
An illustrated guide to the genera of Myodocopida (Ostracoda: Crustacea) collected from western Japan during the cruise of TRV Toyoshiomaru
During three cruises of TRV Toyoshiomaru, 4 families, 16 genera, and 36 species of Myodocopida (Ostracoda) were collected from the southern part of the Sea of Japan, Ariake Sea, and Seto Inland Sea.
Two New Bioluminescent Ostracode Genera, Enewton And Photeros (Myodocopida: Cypridinidae), with Three New Species from Jamaica
Two new genera (Photeros and Enewton) and three new species of bioluminescent signaling ostracodes from Jamaica are described, postulate that the signaling clade has undergone rapid evolution driven by sexual selection particularly in Photeros Cohen and Morin, the only ostracode with both species- specific mating displays and clear species-specific morphological characters in the large male copulatory limbs.
A New Genus and Two New Species of Cypridinidae (Crustacea: Ostracoda: Myodocopina) from Australia
A new genus and two new species of Cypridinidae, Lowrya taiti and Lowrya kornickeri, are described from New South Wales, Australia. Both species are scavengers. They possess an elongate frontal knob
Invertebrate diversity of the unexplored marine western margin of Australia: taxonomy and implications for global biodiversity
It is shown that infaunal macrofauna (crustaceans and polychaetes) of the lower bathyal depth range are underrepresented among available data and documented results from Australia, and estimates of global species, however made, are based on limited data.
Phylogenetic position of Alternochelata lizardensis Kornicker, 1982 within Rutidermatidae (Ostracoda: Myodocopida), with an investigation into its green coloration
It is concluded that there is no evidence that A. lizardensis harbors photosynthetic symbionts suggesting the green coloration is due to something besides photosynthesis, and the framework presented here is nevertheless applicable for other taxa where photobionts are suspected.
This is the first report of iridescence from the second antenna of Myodocopina, a scavenger from off the west coat of Tasmania that occurs in an area of relatively high diversity of scavenging crustaceans and exhibits feeding limbs well equipped for scavenging.
Two new species of the subfamily Cypridininae (Myodocopa, Ostracoda) from South Australia
Two new species were collected from the littoral in South Australia, raising the number of Cypridinodes and Paradoloria species in the vicinity of Australia to six in both genera.
