Ghost and mud shrimps in Axiidea and Gebiidea are hosts to parasitic epicaridean isopods, including species in Bopyridae and Ionidae. [] Key Result Our analysis of new material and review of museum specimens includes the description of the new species Acrobelione halimedae n. sp. from Austinogebia spinfrons (Haswell, 1881).
Crustaceans as hosts of parasites throughout the Phanerozoic
This work reports an increase of 41% to 124 fossil decapod species with epicaridean-induced swellings in the branchial chamber (ichnotaxon Kanthyloma crusta) and finds no correlation between genus abundance and prevalence of K. crusta, and a larger median size of parasitized versus non-parasitized specimens for two selected species.
A new species of Pseudione sensu lato (Isopoda: Bopyridae) on a squat lobster host from the deep South-West Atlantic.
A new bopyrid is described based on an ovigerous female and an adult male found in the right branchial chamber on a specimen of Munida spinosa Henderson, 1885, which was collected in the Mar del Plata submarine canyon at 819 m depth during the expedition Talud Continental I carried out by the Argentine RV Puerto Deseado in 2012.
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
Probynia ramiroromani, new species (Isopoda: Bopyridae) and new occurrences of bopyrid isopods parasitizing decapod crustaceans from Mexican Atlantic waters
Abstract. Six species of bopyrids were detected by inspection of crustaceans of diverse taxa collected in the Gulf of Mexico and the Mexican Caribbean that were deposited in two scientific
A new species of Pseudione Kossmann, 1881 (Crustacea, Isopoda, Bopyridae) parasitizing the squat lobster Munida microphthalma A. Milne-Edwards, 1880 in the Southwestern Atlantic.
The number of specimens obtained as well as the life history stage diversity of the type series, consisting of mature females, mature males, subadult males and cryptoniscus larvae, are unusually large for bopyrid isopod type series.
Bopyrid isopods of the genus Aporobopyrus infesting porcellanid crabs (Decapoda: Anomura) in the Gulf of California, Mexico: new host and parasite records
Examination of porcellanid crabs from the Gulf of California, Mexico, deposited in the Coleccion Nacional de Crustaceos of the Instituto de Biologia, UniversidadNacional Autono...


Description of a new species of Asymmetrione (Isopoda: Bopyridae: Pseudioninae) infesting the hermit crab Paguristes tomentosus (Anomura: Diogenidae) from Peru, with a key to species and a review of southeastern Pacific bopyrids
A new species of bopyrid isopod is described from a host hermit crab Paguristes tomentosus collected from Pisco, Peru and assigned to the pseudionine isopOD genus Asymmetrione, the second species in the genus with less than 20° asymmetry in females, but agrees in having the characteristic “socket” on the propodus of the female's pereopods.
Pseudione overstreeti, New Species (Isopoda: Epicaridea: Bopyridae), A Parasite of Callichirus islagrande (Decapoda: Anomura: Callianassidae) from the Gulf of Mexico
Pseudione overstreeti, new species, is a common bopyrid that infests the branchial chamber of the beach ghost shrimp, Callichirus islagrande, occurring along beaches of the Gulf of Mexico from Cape
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.
Description of the mature female and epicaridium larva of Cabirops montereyensis Sassaman from southern California (Crustacea: Isopoda: Cabiropidae)
Comparisons of cryptoniscus larvae and immature females between these collections and those from Monterey Bay indicate that the southern California specimens represent a range extension of C montereyensis, and the diagnosis of the crypt oniscus stage is illustrated, and supplemented by descriptions of several new characters, based on scanning electron microscopy.
A guide to the Thalassinidea (Crustacea: Malacostraca: Decapoda) of the South Atlantic Bight
The examination of extensive collections from the National Museum of Natural History, the Southeastern Regional Taxonomic Center (SERTC), and regional institutions resulted in the identification of 14 species of thalassinideans currently known to occur within this region.
A Review of Bopyrids (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae) Parasitic on Caridean Shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) from China
ABSTRACT A review of 37 bopyrid isopods known to infest 43 species of caridean shrimps in China is presented, based on literature records and new material. Synonymies are provided for all species,
A New Genus of Bopyrid Isopod Infesting Munidopsis beringana (Decapoda: Galatheidae) from Deep Waters
Goleathopseudione is the third genus of bopyrid isopod that infests the host genus Munidopsis in the eastern Pacific, and the second described for a depth greater than 4000 m.
A molecular phylogeny of Bopyroidea and Cryptoniscoidea (Crustacea: Isopoda)
Coevolution between host and parasite phylogenies showed extensive incongruence, indicating frequent host-switching as a general pattern in Epicaridea.
Review of the New Zealand Bopyridae (Crustacea: Isopoda: Epicaridea)
Thirteen species of parasitic bopyrid isopods occur on New Zealand decapod crustaceans and 6 species are new to science, including 2 previously described endemics.
Larval spirurida (Nematoda) from the crab Macrophthalmus hirtipes in New Zealand.
Previously undescribed third-stage larvae of two species of Spirurida were found in the haemocoel of the stalk-eyed mud crab Macrophthalmus hirtipes (Heller) (Ocypodidae) in New Zealand. Examinations
