  author={Jianmei An and Jason D. Williams and Haiyan Yu},
Abstract Eight species among six genera of bopyrid isopods (representing the subfamilies Pseudioninae and Ioninae) infesting thalassinideans from China are reported. Of these, four species are new to science: Gyge fujianensis n. sp., Progebiophilus elongatus n. sp., Upogebione bidigitatus n. sp., and Procepon liuruiyui n. sp., infesting Upogebia major (de Haan), Nihonotrypaea japonica Ortmann, Upogebia carinicauda (Stimpson), and Austinogebia wuhsienweni (Yu). One species, Ione cornuta Bate… 
A Review of Bopyrids (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae) Parasitic on Caridean Shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) from China

Three abdominal parasitic isopods (Isopoda: Epicaridea: Bopyridae: Athelginae) on hermit crabs from China and Hong Kong
Three bopyrid isopods of the subfamily Athelginae parasitizing hermit crabs collected in Chinese waters are discussed and described and data on their prevalence with hermit crab hosts are provided.
Parasites (Isopoda: Epicaridea and Nematoda) from ghost and mud shrimp (Decapoda: Axiidea and Gebiidea) with descriptions of a new genus and a new species of bopyrid isopod and clarification of Pseudione Kossmann, 1881.
Bopyrid isopods represent a large, diverse taxon and the findings help clarify the taxonomy of those species found on ghost and mud shrimps.
Occurrence of Orthione griffenismarkham, 2004 (Isopoda: Bopyridae), parasite of the mud shrimp upogebia major(de Haan, 1841) in South Korean waters, and its implications with respect to marine bioinvasion
DNA analysis supported strongly that South Korean Orthioneis the same species of western Pacific (USA), O. griffenis, and two regionally disjunct isopods showed very low genetic variation in the mitochondrial COI (cytochrome oxidase subunit I) sequences.
First record and description of male Rhopalione sinensis Markham, 1990, from China, with remarks on genus Rhopalione Pérez, 1920 (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae)
The bopyrid isopod species Rhopalione sinensis Markham, 1990, is recorded for only the second time, from a new locality in China outside Hong Kong, the type-locality. This is also the first finding

Crustaceans as hosts of parasites throughout the Phanerozoic
This work reports an increase of 41% to 124 fossil decapod species with epicaridean-induced swellings in the branchial chamber (ichnotaxon Kanthyloma crusta) and finds no correlation between genus abundance and prevalence of K. crusta, and a larger median size of parasitized versus non-parasitized specimens for two selected species.
The cryptogenic parasitic isopod Orthione griffenis Markham, 2004 from the eastern and western Pacific.
The first record of O. griffenis from Chinese waters is reported based on collections made in the 1950s, which pre-date any records of the species from the United States by at least 20 years.
The first complete mitochondrial genome of a parasitic isopod supports Epicaridea Latreille, 1825 as a suborder and reveals the less conservative genome of isopods
The results cast doubt that Epicaridea Latreille, 1825 can be placed as an infraorder within the suborder Cymothoida, and Epicaridesa appears to also deserve subordinal rank.
Systematics, phylogeny, and taphonomy of ghost shrimps (Decapoda): a perspective from the fossil record.
Preliminary results suggest that the ghost shrimp clade emerged not before the Hauterivian (~ 133 Ma), and the divergence of Ctenochelidae and Paracalliacinae is estimated to occur within the interval of HautERivian to Albian (133-100 Ma).


New species and records of Bopyridae (Crustacea: Isopoda) infesting species of the genus Upogebia (Crustacea: Decapoda: Upogebiidae): The genera Orthione Markham, 1988, and Gyge Cornalia & Panceri, 1861
The genus Metabopyrus Shiino, 1939, is incorporated into Gyge Cornalia and Panceri, 1861, which is rediagnosed, and a key is given to the four known species.

Twelve species in 12 genera were identified and classified onto 7 subfamilies, of which following 8 species are new to Korea : Metaboyrus ovalis Shiino, Bopyrissa pyriforma (shiino), Ione cornuta Spence Bate, Parapenaeonella distincta ShiINO, Bopyriodes Hippolytes (Kroyer) and Pseudostegias dulicilacuum Markham.
First Record of a Hawaiian Shore Bopyrid (Isopoda : Bopyridae)
A shore bopyrid (epicaridean isopods parasitic upon Decapoda) was found in 1962 in the left branchial region of the crab Xantho crassinianus at Diamond Head, Oahu, Hawaii. Although the larvae and
Descriptions and revisions of some species of Isopoda Bopyridae of the North Western Atlantic Ocean
Material reported is: Asymmetrione clibanarii Markham, 1975 ex Clibanarius sp. in Colombia (new host, new locality) and ex C. tricolor (Gibbes, 1850) in Colombia (new locality); A. desultor Markham,
A new species of callianassid shrimp (Crustacea: Decapoda: Thalassinidea) from deep-water hydrothermal vents off Taiwan
This is the first callianassid shrimp to be reported from deep-water hydrothermal vents, and available data seems to suggest that the new species is vent-endemic.
Larval Abundance Patierns for Three Species of Nihonotrypaea (Decapod a: Thalassinidea: Callianassidae) Along an Estuaryto-open-sea Gradient in Western Kyushu, Japan
Based on plankton samples collected from an estuarine system in western Kyushu, Japan, in summer, I 998, larval abundance patterns for three species of Nihonotrypaea were examined in relation to the intertidal habitats of adults, and it was suggested that larvae of N. harmandi and N. petalura were retained throughout development in the southern Tachibana Bay, which corresponded well to the largest local adult populations of each species.
