Infection of adult migratory river shrimps, Macrobrachium ohione, by the branchial bopyrid isopod Probopyrus pandalicola
TLDR
It is indicated that infection of adult shrimps is common in M. ohione in the Atchafalaya and Mississippi Rivers, Louisiana, USA, and that host vulnerability is probably increased following host ecdysis.
New hosts and distribution records for bopyrid isopods parasitising alpheid shrimps (Decapoda, Alpheidae) in the SW Gulf of Mexico and Mexican Caribbean
TLDR
It is documented for the first time Synalpheus curacaoensis, Alpheus cristulifrons and A. estuariensis as hosts of bopyrid isopods, and for the latter alpheid species is confirmed their distribution in Mexican coasts.
Exceptionally preserved cryptoniscium larvae - morphological details of rare isopod crustaceans from French Cretaceous Vendean amber
TLDR
The presented specimens represent the oldest occurrence of epicaridean body fossils, extending their fossil record by 67 million years and are likely to be conspecific to any extant species nor to much younger fossils from the Miocene of Mexico.
INFESTATION OF Probopyrus sp . ON Macrobrachium lanchesteri FROM CHALOK RIVER AND NYATOH RIVER , TERENGGANU , MALAYSIA
The bopyrid isopod Probopyrus sp. is a common ectoparasite of Macrobrachium lanchesteri from Chalok and Nyatoh rivers. A total of 1263 prawns were examined and only 38 prawns were infested by
Bopyrid isopods parasitizing on the cultured fresh water prawn, Macrobrachiummalcolmsonii in South India
TLDR
The bopyrid isopod (Probopyrus buitendijki) was identified in the branchial cavities of the fresh water prawn, M. malcolmsonii, from grow-out culture pond at Kuriyamangalam, India and the parasites cause infertility and does not found any organ deformities due to the infestation.
Growth of individuals within the parasite-host association Bopyrina abbreviata (Isopoda, Bopyridae) and Hippolyte zostericola (Decapoda, Caridea), and variations in parasite morphology
Abstract Growth is an important ecological factor of species on which information is scant for host–parasite associations. A sample of 680 Hippolyte zostericola parasitized by the isopod Bopyrina
Prevalence, reproduction and morphology of the parasitic isopod Athelges takanoshimensis Ishii, 1914 (Isopoda: Bopyridae) from Hong Kong hermit crabs
TLDR
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.
Sexual Sterilization of the Daggerblade Grass Shrimp Palaemonetes pugio (Decapoda: Palaemonidae) by the Bopyrid Isopod Probopyrus pandalicola (Isopoda: Bopyridae)
TLDR
It was found that parasitized and deparasitized males were able to fertilize the eggs of unparasitized females successfully, as 18.9 ± 7.1% and 42.7 ± 5.2% of the females paired with them became ovigerous in 4 wk, respectively.
Effects of river control structures on the juvenile migration of Macrobrachium ohione
Summary Macrobrachium ohione is an amphidromous species (i.e. lives and breeds in fresh water with larval development in estuarine, brackish or coastal waters) that has experienced population
Phylogeny and Systematics of Extant and Extinct Lobsters
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis including representatives from 44 extinct and 27 extant families of lobsters resulted in the recognition of one new superfamily, Glaessnericarioidea, and three new families, Glasnericariidae, Neoglypheidae, and Litogastroidae.
