Formerly Aroui was a monotypic scopelocheirid genus known only from the Mediterranean Sea. The type species, Aroui setosus Chevreux, is redescribed. It is shown that a neotype, recently established for this species, is invalid, and a lectotype is selected from syntype material in the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris. A second species, Aroui hamatopodus, is described, based on widespread collections from the Australian continental shelf and slope. The genus is rediagnosed and… 

A review of the scopelocheirid amphipods (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Lysianassoidea), with the description of new taxa from Australian waters

The scopelocheirines are a small family of scavenging lysianassoid amphipods and the deep-sea paracallisomines are not often collected and consequently their morphological diversity is not well understood.

Aroui minusetosus, a new species of Scopelocheiridae from Korea (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Lysianassoidea)

This new species is distinguished from congeners by ventrally smooth coxae 1-3 and a setose posteroventral margin of coxa 4, the subchelate gnathopod 2 having a row of four robust setae on its posterior margin, and the setation of all appendages which is less dense than in other species.

A New Species of the Genus Scopelocheirus (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Gammaridea) from Onagawa Bay, Northeastern Japan

A new species of scopelocheirid amphipod was found during an ecological study of the marine scavenging amphipods in Onagawa Bay, Northeastern Japan and is closely similar to S. hopei and S. Aroui, but clearly distinguished from them by lateral cephalic lobe, maxilla 2, pereopod 6, epimeron 2 and uropods 1-3.

A new species of the genus scopelocheirus (crustacea: amphipoda: gammaridea) from onagawa bay, northeastern Japan.

A new species of scopelocheirid amphipod was found during an ecological study of the marine scavenging amphipods in Onagawa Bay, Northeastern Japan, and some taxonomic commentary on the generic identity of the genus Scopel Rocheirus and a related genus Aroui is described.

A revision of the genus Paracallisoma Chevreux, 1903 (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Scopelocheiridae: Paracallisominae) with a redescription of the type species of the genus Paracallisoma and the description of two new genera and two new species from the Atlantic Ocean.

The genus Paracallisoma is revised and the type species is redescribed based on holotype material supplemented with new material from the region of the type locality, which results in the establishment of two new genera and the description of a new species.

Bathypanoploea schellenbergi Holman & Watling, 1983, an Antarctic amphipod (Crustacea) feeding on holothuroidea

The mouthparts show features which are interpreted as adaptations to cut rigid tissue and to deal with mucus and the foregut morphology indicates extensive food storage capabilities.

A revision of the genus Paracallisoma Chevreux

The genus Paracallisoma is revised and the type species is redescribed based on holotype material supplemented with new material from the region of the type locality, which results in the establishment of two new genera and the description of a new species.
