This paper describes new or little known species of Stenothoidae, collected from sea anemones, bivalves or hermit crabs. A key to world Stenula species is provided. 
Amphipod family distributions around Iceland
Distribution maps are presented for each taxon along with a summary of the regional taxonomy for the group and a pattern of family distributions that correlated with sampling depth is revealed.
The first Arctic conspicuously coloured Pleusymtes (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Pleustidae) associated with sea anemones in the Barents Sea
The article presents a potentially obligate association of a pleustid amphipod of the genus Pleusymtes with the large sea anemone Urticina eques from shallow waters of the Barents Sea and discusses the taxonomy, morphological differences from congeners and ecological features of the new species.
Amphipod assemblage found on sublittoral hydroids in the White Sea with the special remarks to symbiotic association of stenothoid Metopa alderi with hydroid Tubularia larynx
Only M. alderi (Stenothoidae) could be considered as specific symbionts for 3 species of sublittoral hydroid, namely H. falcate, S. mirabilis and T. larynx.
An association of Stenula bassarginensis (Gurjanova, 1948) (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Stenothoidae) and Tubularia cf. indivisa Linnaeus, 1758 (Cnidaria: Tubulariidae) in the coastal waters of the Sea of Japan
Amphipod Stenula bassarginensis (Gurjanova, 1948) (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Stenothoidae) is described in association with oaten pipe hydroid Tubularia cf. indivisa Linnaeus, 1758 (Cnidaria:
Mutualistic relationship between the amphipod Stenula nordmanni (Stephensen, 1931) and the nephtheid coral Gersemia rubiformis (Ehrenberg, 1834)
Findings suggest that the amphipods display a specific and obligate mutualistic association with their coral host, considering that they benefit from shelter and food, and the host benefits from active protection against potential predators.
Amphipods and sea anemones, an update
An updated survey of the Amphipoda that live in association with sea anemones is presented, providing new information on feeding ecology and a discussion of the evolution of these associations.

A new Stenothoe species (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Stenothoidae) living on Boloceropsis platei (Anthozoa: Actiniaria) from Chilean Patagonia
This paper describes a new species of Stenothoe (Amphipoda, Stenothoidae), S. boloceropsis sp. nov., collected among the tentacles of the sea anemone Boloceropsis platei Mc Murrich, 1904, found on
New Antarctic stenothoids sensu lato (Amphipoda, Crustacea)
Three stenothoid species are reported from recent Antarctic collections. Two of these are new to science ( Prometopa cedrici sp. nov. and Antatelson claudei sp. nov.). A few character states of 
Associations between gammarid and caprellid amphipods and medusae
The amphipod partners belong to the families, Amphilochidae and Stenothoidae, the medusae are either Hydromedusae or Rhizostomeae and the amphipods seem to feed on secretions from their hosts.
New and poorly described stenothoids (Crustacea, Amphipoda) from the Pacific Ocean
Nine stenothoid species were found during different Danish expeditions to the Paci fi c Ocean at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century and belong to the genera Stenothoe and Metopa, which are new and poorly described.
On Austral-Antarctic stenothoids (Amphipoda), Part 3: Torometopa, Scaphodactylus, and two new genera
The genera Torometopa and Scaphodactylus are revised, some species redescribed, and two new genera erected in the amphipod family Stenothoidae sensu lato.
A new Parametopella species (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Stenothoidae) from Antholoba achates (Anthozoa: Actiniaria) from Coquimbo, Chile (with remarks on Parametopa alaskensis (Holmes))
A new species in the genus Parametopella (Amphipoda: Stenothoidae), P. antholobae sp.
The direct associations between amphipods and molluscs are reviewed and the calliopiid Calliopiella michaelseni Schellenberg, 1925, associated with intertidal Patella spp.
Amphipods as associates of other Crustacea: a survey
This paper presents an overview of the known associations between amphipods and other crustaceans, and focuses on groups 2-4, which are quite common and widely distributed among the different amphipod clades.
Redescription and biology of Stenothoe brevicornis Sars (Amphipoda: Crustacea), an obligate associate of the sea anemone Actinostola callosa (Verrill)
The amphipod Stenothoe brevicornis Sars, 1883 is redescribed using material from the Tromso area, northern Norway and is characterized by a reduced armament of antennae and legs and very small secondary sexual differences.
