The parasitic isopod Orthione griffenis Markham, 2004 was originally described from thalassinid mud shrimp hosts collected in Oregon. Subsequently, O. griffenis has been cited as a non-indigenous species in estuaries of the Pacific Northwest of North America; however, no taxonomic work has provided evidence that specimens from the western coast of the United States and other localities are conspecific. We report the first record of O. griffenis from Chinese waters based on collections made in…

Redescription of the Mediterranean endemic parasitic isopod Anuropodione amphiandra (Codreanu, Codreanu & Pike, 1966) n. comb. (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae) from Munida rutllanti Zariquiey Alvarez, 1952, with new records from Turkey and a review of the genus Anuropodione Bourdon, 1967
Seven species of bopyrid isopods were previously known from Turkish Mediterranean waters; a purported eighth species, Orthione griffenis Markham, 2004, is based on incorrect identification and likely
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
TLDR
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.
An introduced Asian parasite threatens northeastern Pacific estuarine ecosystems
TLDR
Six criteria reveal that Orthione is introduced to North America: its conspecificity with disjunct Asian populations, its earliest (1950s) collections in Asia, its late discovery among symbiotic species associated with Upogebia, its historical absence, and its appearance in North America coincident with extensive new ballast water traffic from Asia.
Three abdominal parasitic isopods (Isopoda: Epicaridea: Bopyridae: Athelginae) on hermit crabs from China and Hong Kong
TLDR
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.
Poleward range expansion of invasive bopyrid isopod, Orthione griffenis Markham, 2004, confirmed by establishment in Central British Columbia, Canada
TLDR
Steady infestation of mud shrimp on Calvert Island confirmed that the invasive bopyrid has successfully established itself in a novel host population 300 km further north than previously recorded, but with lower parasite prevalence than in the known invasive range.
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.
TLDR
Bopyrid isopods represent a large, diverse taxon and the findings help clarify the taxonomy of those species found on ghost and mud shrimps.
New Record of Marine Parasitic Isopods (Family, Corallinidae) from South Andaman, Andaman Islands, India
TLDR
Prevalence of corallinids provides additional information to update the check list of isopods from Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
A new genus for Entophilusmirabiledictu Markham & Dworschak, 2005 (Crustacea: Isopoda: Cryptoniscoidea: Entophilidae) with remarks on morphological support for epicaridean superfamilies based on larval characters
TLDR
A review of the morphological features of entophilid cryptoniscus larvae led to the finding that the number of flagellar segments on the second antenna offers morphological support for a recent molecular phylogeny of epicaridean taxa that rearranged the component families within the two recognised superfamilies.
Probynia ramiroromani, new species (Isopoda: Bopyridae) and new occurrences of bopyrid isopods parasitizing decapod crustaceans from Mexican Atlantic waters
Abstract. Six species of bopyrids were detected by inspection of crustaceans of diverse taxa collected in the Gulf of Mexico and the Mexican Caribbean that were deposited in two scientific
Exceptionally preserved cryptoniscium larvae - morphological details of rare isopod crustaceans from French Cretaceous Vendean amber
TLDR
The presented specimens represent the oldest occurrence of epicaridean body fossils, extending their fossil record by 67 million years and are likely to be conspecific to any extant species nor to much younger fossils from the Miocene of Mexico.

First record of the harpacticoid genus Harpacticella in the Pacific Northwest, USA: another probable introduction
TLDR
Because the genus Harpacticella has previously been found only in Asia and the Indian Ocean; is probably easily trans- ported on ship hulls or in ballast; and appears to have a disjunct regional distribution, it is regarded as a probable introduced species to North America.
Species differentiation in Synidotea (Isopoda : Idoteidae) and recognition of introduced marine species : a reply to Chapman and Carlton
TLDR
The Australian species fail several of Chapman and Carlton's attributes of introduced species: their recent discovery and distribution are anticipated in a poorly explored fauna, there is no evidence of postintroduction range extension, no known human mechanisms of introduction exist, and they are not associated with known introductions, nor with altered environments.
First record of the Indo-Pacific Cymothoa indica (Crustacea, Isopoda, Cymothoidae), a Lessepsian species in the Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
Cymothoa indica, a typical Indo-Pacific genus and species, is reported for the first time in the eastern Mediterranean Sea and should be added to the list of exotic species introduced from the Red Sea and known as Lessepsian migrants.
The Bopyridae (Crustacea: Isopoda) parasitic on thalassinideans (Crustacea: Decapoda) from China
TLDR
Eight species among six genera of bopyrid isopods infesting thalassinideans from China are reported, with four species being new to science and extending their range north.
Four new records and a new species of Dactylokepon Stebbing, 1910 (Epicaridea: Bopyridae: Ioninae) from Chinese waters
TLDR
Five species of the parasitic isopod genus Dactylokepon are described from brachyuran crabs and a scyllarid shrimp collected in Chinese waters, and one species is new to science, having a prominent trifid frontal lamina and a distinct digitate barbula.
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
TLDR
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.
A worldwide list of hermit crabs and their relatives (Anomura: Paguroidea) reported as hosts of Isopoda Bopyridae
TLDR
This report serves, for the first time, to collect the widely scattered records of paguroid infestation into a single list with both host and parasite names updated to conform with the currently accepted nomenclature.
GENETIC DIVERSITY AND EXPANDING NONINDIGENOUS RANGE OF THE RHIZOCEPHALAN LOXOTHYLACUS PANOPAEI PARASITIZING MUD CRABS IN THE WESTERN NORTH ATLANTIC
TLDR
Mitochondrial DNA sequences from the cytochrome oxidase I gene showed that nonindigenous L. panopaei are genetically distinct from the endemic parasites in southeastern Florida and the eastern Gulf of Mexico, and suggest that unrecognized genetic and phenotypic population structure may occur among Gulf ofMexico populations of Loxothylacus.
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,
Epidemiology of cryptonisci (Bopyridae: Isopoda) in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia
TLDR
Environment was more important than intermediate hosts in explaining variation in cryptoniscid numbers and more cryptonisci were found offshore in the northern and northwestern areas of the Gulf and autumn had the highest abundance.
