Two deep-water species of caridean shrimps collected during recent dives by the Chinese manned submersible "Jiaolong" represents new records for the South China Sea: Alvinocaris longirostris Kikuchi & Ohta, 1995 (Alvinocarididae) and Acanthephyra faxoni Calman, 1939 (Acanthephyridae). Specimens of these two species were collected from Jiaolong Cold Seep I, off Guangdong Province, China (depth 1138 m). Alvinocaris longirostris is known to be associated with chemosynthetic community, whereas…

Four new records of caridean shrimp (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) from the East China Sea and South China Sea
Four species of caridean shrimps collected from the East China Sea and South China Sea represent new records for the Chinese waters, and diagnostic characters and illustrations of these four species are presented.
A new species of Alvinocaris (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Alvinocarididae) from hydrothermal vents in the Izu-Bonin and Mariana Arcs, north-western Pacific
Results of molecular phylogenetic analyses based on partial sequences of the mitochondrial COI and nuclear ITS-I genes compared between specimens of A. marimonte sp.
Globospongicola jiaolongi Jiang, Kou & Li, 2015, a junior subjective synonym of G. spinulatus Komai & Saito, 2006 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Stenopodidea: Spongicolidae).
Morphological and genetic analyses both showed that the abundant material of deep-sea sponge associated Globospongicola shrimps collected off southwestern Taiwan belongs to the same species as G. spinulatus, and G. jiaolongi is treated as a junior subjective synonym of G.spinulatus.
Mitochondrial phylogenomics reveal the origin and adaptive evolution of the deep-sea caridean shrimps (Decapoda: Caridea)
The phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial genomes from carideans, including 11 newly sequences reported in this investigation, showed that the species of deep-sea Caridea formed a monophyletic group, and supported that theDeep-sea caridean shrimps may originated from shallow sea.
Taxonomic research on deep-sea macrofauna in the South China Sea using the Chinese deep-sea submersible Jiaolong.
The population structures of two dominant species, the shrimp Shinkaia crosnieri and the mussels Bathymodiolus platifrons and Globospongicola, from the cold seep in the South China Sea and the hydrothermal vents in the Okinawa Trough were compared using molecular analysis.
Report of epibenthic macrofauna found from Haima cold seeps and adjacent deep-sea habitats, South China Sea
This work reports on a preliminary taxonomic study of epibenthic macroinvertebrates collected or observed by underwater video at the Haima cold seeps and in adjacent deep-sea habitats, including a
Genetic population structure of four hydrothermal vent shrimp species (Alvinocarididae) in the Okinawa Trough, Northwest Pacific
The findings of this study indicate that the wide geographical and bathymetrical distributional ranges of the vent shrimp species cause high genetic diversity associated with stable population connectivity and certain environmental features and life-history traits represent important formative factors in the connectivity of alvinocaridids in the Northwest Pacific.


Two New Caridean Shrimps of the Family Alvinocarididae (Crustacea, Decapoda) from a Hydrothermal Field at the Minami-Ensei Knoll in the Mid-Okinawa Trough, Japan
Seventy-two specimens representing two new species of Alvinocaris of the family Alvinoearididae, A. brevitetsonis and A. Ieurokolos, were found in samples collected from thermally influenced fields
A new species of Alvinocaris (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Alvinocarididae) and a new record of A. muricola from methane seeps on the Blake Ridge Diapir, Northwestern Atlantic
Alvinocaridid shrimp genus Alvinocaris methanophila is described and illustrated on the basis of 33 adult specimens, most similar to the sympatrically found A. muricola Williams, but differs in the comparatively stout second segment of the antennular peduncle and smaller size at maturity in females.
A new genus and two new species of alvinocaridid shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) from a hydrothermal vent field off northeastern Taiwan
Two new species of alvinocaridid shrimps are described from a hydrothermal vent field off northeastern Taiwan at depths of 252–300 m, which constitute the first discovery of the family AlvinOCarididae in Taiwanese waters and represent the shallowest occurrence for alvinokaridids.
A New Species of Alvinocaris (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Alvinocarididae) from Hydrothermal Vents at The Lau Basin, Southwest Pacific, and a Key to The Species of Alvinocarididae
Adults of this species are distinguished in the field from other alvinocaridids at the ELSC by their larger size and orange-white carapace and appear to preferentially inhabit mussel beds composed of Bathymodiolus brevior.
New Species and New Records of Hydrothermal Vent Shrimps from New Zealand (Caridea: Alvinocarididae, Hippolytidae)
The first records of the alvinocaridid, Nautilocaris saintlaurentae Komai & Segonzac, 2004, from Brothers Seamount, New Zealand, are reported, being previously known only from the North Fiji and Lau basins.
First record and a new species of Alvinocaris Williams & Chace, 1982 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Alvinocarididae) from the Indian Ocean.
The genetic divergence of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene (600 bp) among the nine Alvinocaris species analyzed clearly indicates that the new taxon is distinct from the congeneric species for which genetic data are available.
A new species of Alvinocaris (Crustacea: Decapoda: Alvinocarididae) and new records of alvinocaridids from hydrothermal vents north of New Zealand
The new species is the shallowest alvinocaridid yet discovered and also inhabits the greatest depth range, at over 700 m, and is characterised by: short rostrum; paired sternal spines on abdominal somites I III; long stylocerite and robust distolateral spine on the antennular proximal segment.
A revision of the genus Alvinocaris Williams and Chace (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Alvinocarididae), with descriptions of a new genus and a new species of Alvinocaris
The caridean shrimp genus Alvinocaris Williams and Chace, 1982 (Bresilioidea: Alvinocarididae) is revised based upon type material and newly obtained samples from various reducing environments of the deep‐sea floor of the world, and a new monotypic genus, Shinkaicaris, is established.
New galatheoidea (Crustacea, Decapoda, Anomura) from hydrothermal systems in the West Pacific Ocean : Bismarck Archipelago and Okinawa Trough
La nouvelle espece est plus proche de ses congeneres non-hydrothermaux de la mer de Banda and du nord du Pacifique central that of ceux de sites hydrothermau.
