The rarely collected alpheid shrimp, Athanas ornithorhynchus Banner and Banner, characterized by a unique platypus bill-shaped dactylus of the minor cheliped, is reported for the first time from Vietnam. Most shrimps werefound directly on the arms of large brittle stars, Macrophiothrix longipeda (Lamarck), which were dwelling under mud-covered boulders, at depths between 16 and 35 m. The association of the shrimps with the ophiuroids observed in the field, the close attachment of the shrimps to…

Symbiotic Association between Athanas dorsalis (Alpheidae) and Stomopneustes variolaris (Echinoidea) from Visakhapatnam Coast, India
TLDR
A new association between the rock boring intertidal dwelling sea urchin Stomopneustes variolaris and the alpheidae, A. dorsalis is reported, where the shrimp derives its food from the algal bits nibbled by the host and the host does not seem to have any obvious advantage out of this association.
Why be cryptic? Choice of host urchin is not based on camouflage in the caridean shrimp Gnathophylloides mineri
TLDR
This study indicates that despite effective morphological and behavioral traits that render an organism highly cryptic, other, more effective, means of concealment may undermine the usefulness of this crypsis.
Deep water echinoid-associated pontoniine shrimp "Periclimenes hertwigi Balss, 1913" species group (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Palaemonidae): species review, description of a new genus and species from Philippines.
TLDR
The new pontoniine shrimp genus, Echinopericlimenes gen. nov, is suggested for four species, usually collected deeper that 300 meters in associations with venomous sea urchins of the family Echinothuriidae (Echinodermata: Echinoidea).
Athanas anatidactylus sp. nov., a New Alpheid Shrimp (Crustacea: Decapoda) Associated with Crinoids in the Tropical Western Paci fic
Athanas anatidactylus sp. nov. is described on the basis of a holotype specimen collected in Nhatrang Bay, Vietnam, and an additional specimen from the Bohol Sea, the Philippines. The specimen from
Establishment of a new genus for Arete borradailei coutière, 1903 and Athanas verrucosus banner and banner, 1960, with redefinitions of Arete stimps on, 1860 and Athanas leach, 1814 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Alpheidae)
TLDR
The establishment of Rugathanas enables the redefinition of Athanas Leach, 1814 and Arete Stimpson, 1860, and a formal revalidation of Arete, formerly a synonym of Athana, to be revalidated.
First record of eulimids on brittle stars from Spratly Islands
This study presents the first record of two eulimid species, Stilapex zebra and Pyramidelloides sp., found on the arms of the brittle star Ophiothrix (Acanthophiothrix) purpurea on Spratly Islands
MORPHOLOGICAL PHYLOGENY OF ALPHEID SHRIMPS: PARALLEL PREADAPTATION AND THE ORIGIN OF A KEY MORPHOLOGICAL INNOVATION, THE SNAPPING CLAW
TLDR
The first phylogenetic hypothesis of relationships among 36 extant genera of alpheid shrimps is presented, based on a cladistic analysis of 122 morphological characters from 56 species, and this hypothesis is used to explore evolutionary trends in morphology and species diversity.
THE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN THE SEA STAR SHRIMP PERICLIMENES SOROR AND ITS ASTEROID HOSTS : ASSESSING PREFERENCES IN HOST SPECIES AND FOOD CHOICE
Periclimenes soror is a Pontoniid shrimp that lives symbiotically with at least 16 species of sea star, including Culcita novaeguineae and Linckia laevigata. Periclimenes soror has been known to
AUTOTOMIZED ARM BEHAVIOR OF THE BRITTLE STAR MACROPHIOTHRIX LONGIPEDA (ECHINODERMATA: OPHIUROIDEA) IN MOOREA, FRENCH POLYNESIA
Autotomy is a unique process that involves the voluntary release of one or more appendages usually as a defense mechanism to escape lethal predation. Many organisms that display autotomy can later

The association between the caprellid Pariambus typicus Krøyer (Crustacea, Amphipoda) and ophiuroids
Caprellid amphipods are small marine crustaceans whichusually live as epibionts on a variety of substrates.Apart from mostly sessile organisms such as algae,hydroids and bryozoans, they also
The association between the caprellid Pariambus typicus Krøyer (Crustacea, Amphipoda) and ophiuroids
TLDR
The complex association between Pariambus typicus and Ophiura is interpreted as a commensalism and extensive grooming behaviour and specialized mouthpart morphology enable P. typicus to use detritus as an important food source, which contributes also a great part to the ophiuroid nutrition.
Eco-ethological aspects of the symbiosis between the shrimp Athanas indicus (Coutière 1903) and the sea urchin Echinometra mathaei (de Blainville 1825)
TLDR
Four facets of the symbiosis between the shrimp Athanas indicus and the sea urchin Echinometra mathaei in the Red Sea are analyzed, i.e. the constancy of the association, the existence of the different postlarval stages on the host, the presence of breeding adults on theHost, and the advantages of such a partnership.
A new species of the genus Athanas (Decapoda, Caridea, Alpheidae) Living in the burrows of a mantis shrimp
TLDR
One of the northernmost alpheids, being known from southern Hokkaido, this is the second report of the association between an alpheid shrimp and a stomatopod, and two spines on the anterior margin of the carapace and the smooth diaeresis exclude the new species from that genus.
Protandrous hermaphroditism in the tropical shrimp Athanas indicus (Decapoda : Caridea), a symbiont of sea urchins
TLDR
The occurrence of protandrous hermaphroditism is demonstrated in the alpheid shrimp Athanas indicus (Coutiere), a species which lives in symbiosis with the sea urchin Echinometra mathaei in Indo-Pacific coral systems, suggesting that the smallest male in a group must exhibit great plasticity in his behavior to achieve reproductive output.
The shrimps of the Smithsonian-Bredin Caribbean Expeditions with a summary of the West Indian shallow-water species (Crustacea: Decapoda: Natantia)
TLDR
It is postulated that there is no endemic marine natantian fauna in the West Indies and that there are no natural barriers, except the local absence of suitable habitats, to the free distribution of most of the species in the region between the Florida Keys and Brazil.

Reproduction and Development of the Conspicuously Dimorphic Brittle Star Ophiodaphne formata (Ophiuroidea)
TLDR
Sexual dimorphism, the peculiar pairing behavior, and the close relationship with the host sand dollar may have evolved as distinct reproductive characteristics in this ophiuroid with its typical ophiopluteus larvae.
Reproductive strategies in a partially protandrous shrimp,Athanas kominatoensis (decapoda: alpheidae): Sex change as the best of a bad situation for subordinates
TLDR
An alpheid shrimp, Ethanas kominatoensis, inhabiting a Japanese purple sea urchin was shown to be a partially protandrous hermaphrodite, and Hermaphroditism in this shrimp can be explained by the size-advantage model as a special case.
