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 represent Epipenaeon ingens ingens Nobili, 1906, a species already known from the area. In the present study, we report on specimens referable to Pleurocrypta amphiandra Codreanu, Codreanu & Pike, 1966, infesting Munida rutllanti Zariquiey Alvarez, 1952, collected from the southern Aegean Sea off… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

First record of the genus Anuropodione Bourdon, 1967 (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae) from the South Atlantic
These specimens represent the first occurrence of the genus Anuropodione and the species A. carolinensis Markham, 1974 from the South Atlantic (Brazilian waters) and male parasites showed considerable variability in the number of pleomeres.


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.
Review of the parasitic genus Epipenaeon Nobili, 1906 (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae), with new records and redescription of four species from China
All species reported are redescribed from new material and a key to the genus Epipenaeon Nobili is provided, and four host species are recorded for the first time bearing parasitic isopods.
Study of seven species of the genus Munida in the western Atlantic has revealed six species of bopyrid isopod parasites, all of which were undescribed, which were found infesting a specimen of Munida irrasa.
Parasites (Isopoda: Epicaridea and Nematoda) from ghost and mud shrimp (Decapoda: Axiidea and Gebiidea) with descriptions of a new genus and a new species of bopyrid isopod and clarification of Pseudione Kossmann, 1881.
Bopyrid isopods represent a large, diverse taxon and the findings help clarify the taxonomy of those species found on ghost and mud shrimps.
The bopyridae (Crustacea: Isopoda) of Taiwan
This study adds 8 bopyrids to the 5 species previously known from Taiwan, and two new genera are erected for P. obovata and B. stebbingi.
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.
Parasitism of Galatheid Crustaceans From the Norfolk Canyon and Middle Atlantic Bight By Bopyrid Isopods 1,2)
Among twelve species of galatheid and one species of chirostylid Crustacea collected in the vicinity of Norfolk Canyon off eastern U.S.A, Munida iris iris was the most heavily parasitized host species with incidence of infestation by Anuropodione carolinensis and significant size differences between males with fused, undulate, and segmented Pleons may indicate impending feminization of males with segmented pleons.
Occurrence of Orthione griffenismarkham, 2004 (Isopoda: Bopyridae), parasite of the mud shrimp upogebia major(de Haan, 1841) in South Korean waters, and its implications with respect to marine bioinvasion
DNA analysis supported strongly that South Korean Orthioneis the same species of western Pacific (USA), O. griffenis, and two regionally disjunct isopods showed very low genetic variation in the mitochondrial COI (cytochrome oxidase subunit I) sequences.
Prevalence, reproduction and morphology of the parasitic isopod Athelges takanoshimensis Ishii, 1914 (Isopoda: Bopyridae) from Hong Kong hermit crabs
Investigation of the prevalence, reproduction, and morphology of A. takanoshimensis in Hong Kong found parasitism has an influence on host sex ratio, and the first investigation of epicaridium larvae for this species is described using scanning electron microscopy.
Recent and fossil Isopoda Bopyridae parasitic on squat lobsters and porcelain crabs (Crustacea: Anomura: Chirostyloidea and Galatheoidea), with notes on nomenclature and biogeography
The deepest bathymetric records of bopyrids on squat lobster hosts 5210 m, and records of swellings interpreted as indications ofbopyrid presence in fossil host taxa are noted.
