Systematic revision of the family Kalliapseudidae (Crustacea: Tanaidacea)

  title={Systematic revision of the family Kalliapseudidae (Crustacea: Tanaidacea)},
  author={David T. Drumm and Richard W. Heard},
Kalliapseudidae is a family of shallow burrow–dwelling and fossorial marine and estuarine tanaidaceans. There are currently 39 known species in 12 genera and three subfamilies. They are distributed throughout the world’s tropical, subtropical, and temperate coastal waters and, with a few known exceptions, are restricted to depths of less than 200 m. The phylogeny of Kalliapseudidae is assessed to test the monophyly of currently accepted subfamilies and genera, based largely on examination of… 
Tanaidaceans from Brunei, IV. The Families Kalliapseudidae, Pagurapseudopsidae, Parapseudidae and Apseudidae (Crustacea: Peracarida: Tanaidacea: Apseudomorpha), with descriptions of a new genus and six new species.
Apseudomorph tanaidaceans from recent samples of the South China Sea benthos off Brunei have been examined and fourteen species of the four families considered here were discovered, including a new species of Tanapseudes.
Three new species of Apseudomorpha (Crustacea, Tanaidacea) from Jiaozhou Bay, the Yellow Sea, and the South China Sea off coasts of China
Three new species of the crustacean order Tanaidacea are described from the coasts of China and can be distinguished from the most similar species by the features of the maxilliped endite, cheliped dactylus, pereopod 1 carpus and propodus, and pleopods basal article.
A new species of the genus Monokalliapseudes (Crustacea: Tanaidacea: Kalliapseudidae) from French Guiana
Abstract A new species, Monokalliapseudes guianae, is described from French Guianese estuaries. It is distinguishable from its only congener most notably by lacking an exopodite on pereopod 1 and by
Acutihumerus patagoniensis (Sieg, 1986) (Tanaidacea: Kalliapseudidae): supplementary description and remarks on its taxonomic status.
It is claimed that the recently proposed synonymy has not been proven, and the resolution of this taxonomic problem must await additional specimens of A. cavooreni from its type locality (Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil).
A new species of Fageapseudes (Crustacea: Peracarida: Tanaidacea) from California, with comments on the systematics of the family Apseudidae.
A new species of Fageapseudes from 4100 m depth off California is revealed, the first record of the genus in the eastern North Pacific, and problems with the current classification of the Apseudidae are briefly discussed.
A Paradise for Rare Species: Tanaidacean Fauna of the West African Continental Margin
The benthic ecology of the Gulf of Guinea is critically understudied, and knowledge about the composition and biodiversity of the tanaidacean communities remains lacking. Our analysis of tanaidacean
First record of the family Sphyrapodidae Guţu, 1980 (Crustacea: Peracarida: Apseudomorpha) with the description of a new species of Sphyrapus from the Colombian Caribbean
A new sphyrapodid tanaidacean, Sphyrapus caribensis sp. nov. is described and a new record of Kudinopasternakia siegi is reported for the Colombian Caribbean based on samples collected during cruises
Diverse pereopodal secretory systems implicated in thread production in an apseudomorph tanaidacean crustacean
The inferred thread‐producing apparatus in P. tomiokaensis is very different from that in Tanaoidesa and Paratanaoidea, suggesting that kalliapseudids evolved thread production independently from the latter two groups.
Salt Marshes Buffer El Niño Effects on Benthic Secondary Production
The El Nino–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) strongly influences climate and hydrology on the planet and may drive the structure and functioning of estuarine communities. However, the effects of the ENSO
El Niño–Southern Oscillations and Pacific Decadal Oscillation as Drivers of the Decadal Dynamics of Benthic Macrofauna in Two Subtropical Estuaries (Southern Brazil)
The El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) are large-scale climatic phenomena affecting atmospheric and oceanic teleconnections, and thus triggering weather
