Leptocheliid material from sublittoral sandy substrata in the South China Sea off the coast of Brunei has been analyzed. Four species, all new to science, are described, all apparently interstitial in habitat. One is the second species to be described in the genus Catenarius (C. magdae); the others represent three new genera, one in each of the subfamilies Konariinae (Brunarus colekanus), Catenariinae (Ektraleptochelia phoxops) and Leptocheliinae (Nuberis areolaticola). As a result of the new… Expand
First Molecularly Confirmed Conspecific Male and Female Pair in Konariinae (Crustacea: Tanaidacea), with the Description of a New Species
This species closely resembles P. kopure reported from New Zealand, but differs in having the ventral process on the chelipedal carpus longer than wide and an elongate plate-like structure that could be a reduced ischium. Expand
Ecological responses to fluctuating and extreme marine acidification: lessons from a tropical estuary (the Brunei Estuarine System)
The impact of acidification on marine ecosystems has become a topic of priority research, following realization of unabated ocean acidification (OA), derived from globally-rising atmospheric CO2.Expand


Shallow water tanaidaceans (Crustacea: Peracarida: Tanaidacea) from New Caledonia and the Loyalty Islands
The Pacific collections by the MUSORSTOM campaigns of the Paris Museum over the last twenty years include a total of four species of Tanaidacea from shallow waters of the New Caledonia region and all new to science, including a species with unusual cheliped carpus morphology which is placed in a new genus as Konarus cheiris.

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. Expand
Inshore apseudomorph tanaidaceans (Crustacea: Peracarida) from Brunei: new records and new species
Five species of apseudomorph tanaidaceans were distinguished in recent samples from inshore waters off Brunei, two of which were known only from Brunei waters, while Pagurapseudopsis gracilipes was known before only from Vietnam waters, and two new species described herein. Expand
Ogleus pilarae, a new genus and species of leptocheliid tanaidacean (Crustacea: Peracarida: Tanaidomorpha) from the tropical Northwest Atlantic with observations on the genus Pseudonototanais Lang, 1973.
Ogleus pilarae n. gen., n. sp. (Leptocheliidae) is described from specimens collected at a depth of 28 m off the eastern coast of Puerto Rico. Morphologically the new genus appears to have itsExpand
Taxonomische und phylogenetische Untersuchungen über die Tanaidaceen (Crustacea)
The taxonomy of the genera mentioned in the title is discussed as well as the taxonomic position of Typhlotanais longidactylus Shiino, and it is proposed that Leptochelia, Heterotanais, Hargeria, PseudoleptOChelia and PseudonototanaIS should be grouped together in the new family Leptokheliidae. Expand
A New Subgenus and Two New Indo-West-Pacific Species of The Leptocheliid Genus Pseudonototanais Lang, 1973 (Crustacea: Tanaidacea: Tanaidomorpha)
Six species of Pseudonototanais are now recognized, three within each of the two subgenera, and an identification key for both males and females of the genus Pseud onototanis is presented. Expand
New littoral, shelf, and bathyal Paratanaidae (Crustacea: Peracarida: Tanaidacea) from New Zealand, with descriptions of three new genera.
In NZ waters, paratanaids are now known from the littoral zone to 908 m in the bathyal regions of the Chatham Rise and Hikurangi Margin, several of the offshore species being recorded in bryozoan mats. Expand
A re-assessment of Konarus Bamber, 2006 and sympatric leptocheliids from Australasia, and of Pseudoleptochelia Lang, 1973 (Crustacea: Peracarida: Tanaidacea).
Following recent revelations regarding males with subchelate chelipeds in the tanaidacean genus Parakonarus, a number of Australian leptocheliid taxa are re-assessed, and their males and femalesExpand
Morphological and molecular investigation of polymorphism and cryptic species in tanaid crustaceans: implications for tanaid systematics and biodiversity estimates
The identification of three undescribed cryptic species from a single microhabitat in a well studied, shallow water and easily accessible locality, demonstrate that the biodiversity of tanaid crustacean is significantly underestimated. Expand
Tanaidacean phylogeny, the first step: the superfamily Paratanaidoidea
The phylogeny of the superfamily Paratanaidoidea is addressed using computer-assisted parsimony methods and many tanaidacean names have been corrected to make them agree with the presumed Latin stem ‘tanaid-’. Expand
