Misophrioids are not common, indeed most copepod workers have probably never seen one. At present only three species have been described, Misophria pallida Boeck, 1865 (a neritic species with a wide distribution in the N.E. Atlantic, Mediterranean, and Red Sea), Benthomisophria palliata Sars, 1909, and B. cornuta Hulse mann & Grice, 1964 (both bathypelagic but widespread, occurring in both N. Atlantic and N. Pacific Oceans). The true number of mi sophrioid species is certainly considerably… Expand
Some Observations of Morphology and Behavior of a Hyperbenthic Misophrioid Copepod
TLDR
The locomotion, feeding, excretion, and oviposition of a member of the copepod family Misophriidae were observed based on a live specimen collected from a sandy bottom at a depth of 52 m off Nagannu Island, Okinawa, Japan, which suggests that it represents an undescribed genus. Expand
New Aegisthidae (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from western Pacific cold seeps and hydrothermal vents
Hyperbenthic harpacticoid samples from Japanese hydrothermal vents in the Okinawa Trough and cold seep sites in Sagami Bay were examined and resulted in the discovery of four new species belonging toExpand
New Aegisthidae (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from western Pacific cold seeps and hydrothermal vents
Abstract Hyperbenthic harpacticoid samples from Japanese hydrothermal vents in the Okinawa Trough and cold seep sites in Sagami Bay were examined and resulted in the discovery of four new speciesExpand
Three new genera and five new species of misophrioid copepods (Crustacea) from anchialine caves on Indo‐West Pacific and North Atlantic Islands
TLDR
It is suggested that at least some of the cave-dwelling misophrioids represent descendants of deep-sea 3 forms which became separated by vertical vicariance events. Expand
New cave-dwelling misophrioids (Crustacea: Copepoda) from Bermuda
TLDR
A new genus and species, Speleophria bivexilla, is established on the basis of adult females from Roadside Cave and is distinguished from other misophrioids by the possession of a fused genital complex and a 2-segmented first leg endopod. Expand
Female genital structures in several families of Centropagoidea (Copepoda: Calanoida)
TLDR
The genital structures of 21 calanoid species belonging to the families Candaciidae, Centropagidae, Pontellidae, Sulcanidae, Temoridae and Tortanidae were studied using light and electron microscopy and a possible correlation between absence of seminal receptacles and mating behaviour is discussed.

On the Anatomy of the Misophirioid Copepods, with Special Reference to Benthomisophria palliata Sars
TLDR
The misophrioids are a small but phylogenetically important order of copepods, comprising only three species, which exhibit a mosaic of characters drawn from both gymnoplean and podoplean lineages, which makes assessment of their affinities difficult. Expand
