Thirteen taxa in the family Podoceridae are reported from tropical Australia, including six new species and four new records. Podocerus hanapepe J. L. Barnard, 1970, P. talegus lawai J. L. Barnard, 1970, P. walkeri Rabindranath, 1972 and P. zeylanicus (Walker, 1904) are reported from Australia for the first time. New distribution records are provided for P. crenulatus Myers, 1985, P. lobatus (Haswell, 1885) and Laetmatophilus dabberi Barnard & Drummond, 1981. The six new species Podocerus… 
A New Species of Podocerus (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Podoceridae) Associated with the Whale Shark Rhincodon typus
A new species of podocerid amphipod, Podocerus jinbe, is named and described from the gill rakers of the whale shark Rhincodon typus Smith, 1828 from off Yomitan Village, Okinawa Island, Japan.
Crustacea biodiversity in tubes of Ceriantharia (Cnidaria; Anthozoa), including the description of a novel species of Amphipoda from southeastern Brazil
This study investigates ceriantharian tubes to better understand the biodiversity of marine benthic crustaceans and observes one novel species, Podocerus carmelina sp.


Amphipoda from the South Pacific: the Cook Islands
The Cook Island amphipod fauna shows close affinity with that of the Society Islands to the east, but also has a strong component in common with the islands of the Vanuatu-Tonga Island arc and affinity with the island of Nuie.
Sublittoral Gammaridea (Amphipoda) of the Hawaiian Islands
This is the first significant record of cool-water species of any marine group in Hawaii, suggesting that nestlers are less successful in completing the long journey from the cool waters of northern continents.
Amphipoda from marine caves of Hong Kong Island
A collection of 32 amphipod species from submarine cave habitats and control sites to the east of Hong Kong Island was made during a joint NHM/SWIMS expedition in October 2002 and 12 species can be added to the Amphipod checklist for the South China Sea area.
New Species of Tethygeneia (Eurisidae: Amphipoda) and New Record of Algae-Living Gammarid Amphipods in South Sea Islands Marine National Park, Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, Thailand
Six species are new record for the Gulf of Thailand and South China Sea i.e. Ampithoe ramondi, ampithoe africana, Elasmopus puteus, Paradusa bilobata, Parahyale aqulina, Podocerus andamanensis and Anamisxis sp.
Shallow-water, coral reef and mangrove Amphipoda (Gammaridea) of Fiji
Fiji is characterised by a higher percentage of domicolo~ls forms than any other well studied island group and Forty percent of Fijian taxa are new to science but this figure will undoubtedly be lowered when more Indo-Pacific island groups are explored.
New and little-known Podoceridae (Peracarida: Amphipoda) of southern Australia
Thirteen taxa in the family Podoceridae are documented for southern Australia, including five new species, three new records and five redescriptions, helping clarify existing knowledge of these old taxa.
The present volume relating to Crustacea and Echinodermata collected by Mr. Vanderbilt is full of interesting material, and among the Caridea there are many new species.
The Families and Genera of Marine Gammaridean Amphipoda
This work is a handbook for the identification of gammaridean amphipods to generic level through the use of artificial (non-phylogenetic) keys at the family-group level which lead to subsidiary keys to the genera of families or family groups.
The Marine Amphipod Crustaceans of Ulreung Island, Korea: Part II
This study on the four families (Leucothoidae, Melitidae, Pleustidae, and Stenothoidae) of gammaridean and the one family (Caprellidae) of caprellidean amphipods of Ulreung Island was based on the
Epibionts Associated with the Nesting Marine Turtles Lepidochelys olivacea and Chelonia mydas in Jalisco, Mexico: A Review and Field Guide
Given the increased awareness of epibionts and the desire of many researchers to make positive identifications, specific diagnoses, photographs and a collecting protocol will serve as a basic aid to the collection and accurate identification of epibiota found on turtles living along the Pacific coast of Mexico.
