Gerken, S., 2001. The Gynodiastylidae (Crustacea: Cumacea). Memoirs of Museum Victoria 59: 1–276. The Gynodiastylidae are a small family of Cumacea, of 58 previously published species, found primarily in the Southern Hemisphere. Investigation of the collections of Museum Victoria, the Australian Museum, and the South Australian Museum yielded six new genera and 45 new species, diagnosed and figured in this monograph. All previously known species are diagnosed and figured (from type specimens… 
Chalarostylis elegans is redescribed and illustrated based on the new female material and reexamination of the male holotype, becoming the second species within the genus.
A New Record of Gynodiastylis platycarpus (Cumacea: Gynodiastylidae) from Korea
Gynodiastylis platycarpus Gamo is redescribed as a new record of Korean fauna and a key to the Korean species of the genus is provided. This species is characterized by a slender body, a small
Watlingia, a New Genus (Cumacea: Lampropidae) from the Waters of New Zealand
Two species in the new genus Watlingia are described from the Chatham Rise, east of New Zealand, from depths of 350-530 m, characterized by the maxillule palp with a single seta, well-developed accessory flagellum of the antennule, and biarticulate uropod endopod.
Eleven new species and a new genus of Diastylidae (Crustacea: Cumacea) from Australia and one new species from Canada
Keys to all Australian diastylid species are provided, as are global keys to all species of Diastylopsis and Paradiastylis.
The urosome of the Pan- and Peracarida
Embryologic data indicates that the condition of the body terminus in amphipods cannot be easily characterized, though there does appear to be at least a transient seventh segment that seems to fuse with the sixth segment.
A replacement name for Dayus Gerken, 2001 (Crustacea, Peracarida, Cumacea), preoccupied by Dayus Mahmood, 1967 (Insecta, Hemiptera, Cicadellidae)
Abstract A replacement name is proposed for genus Dayus Gerken, 2001 (Crustacea: Peracarida: Cumacea), preoccupied by Dayus Mahmood, 1967 (Insecta: Hemiptera: Cicadellidae). The following changes are
Mitochondrial DNA Sequence Variations and Genetic Relationships among Korean Thais Species (Muricidae: Gastropoda)
The high genetic diversity revealed in Korean Thais species is likely to reflect genetic diversity introduced from potential source populations with diverse geographic origins, such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, and a variety of different coastal regions in South China and Japan.

Deux Cumaces Nouveaux De L'Atlantique Tropical: Atlantistylis Chauvini N. G., N. Sp. (Diastylidae) Et Pseudodiastylis Delamarei N. Sp. (Lampropidae) 1)
A new genus and new species of Diastylidae, Atiantistylis chauvini, from deep waters of the tropical Atlantic are described, characterized by having the telson shorter than the last somite, without lateral spines.
Systematics and distribution of cumaceans collected during BENTART-95 cruise around South Shetland Islands (Antarctica)*
During the BENTART-95 cruise, 24 stations around the South Shetland Islands and Trinity Island, ranging from 45 to 649 m bottom depth, were sampled using a Macer-GIROQ sledge. Alltogether, 1236
