Three new species of Hemicyclops, H. parilis, H. nasutus and H. membranatus are described from Korean coasts. Hemicyclops parilis n. sp. is closely similar to H. gomsoensis Ho and Kim, but distinguishable from the latter species by having the different shape of genital double somite and spermatophore. Hemicyclops nasutus n. sp. is distinguishable from congeners by having five setae on the first segment of antennule and the ratio 4.26 : 1 of the length to width of caudal ramus. Hemicyclops… Expand

Six new species of Copepoda (Clausiidae, Pseudanthessiidae, Polyankyliidae) associated with polychaetes from Korea
Six new species are described from Korean waters, three of them belonging in the family Clausiidae, one in the Pseudanthessiaceae, and two in the Polyankyliidae. Expand
Polychaete-parasitizing copepods from the deep-sea Kuril–Kamchatka Trench (Pacific Ocean), with the description of a new Ophelicola species and comments on the currently known annelidicolous copepods
Ophelicola kurambia is described, the second species recorded for the genus and the first for the Pacific Ocean, and contributes to clarify the diagnosis of the genus, which clearly differs from Notomasticola and resembles both the most modified clausiids and the clausidiids. Expand


Two new species of Hemicyclops (Copepoda: Poecilostomatoida: Clausidiidae) associated with mud shrimps of the genus Callichirus from Brazil
Two new clausidiid copepods of the genus Hemicyclops associated with mud shrimps are described from Brazil; H. caissarum is closest to H. carinifer Humes, 1965 from Madagascar and H. sebastiani can be easily distinguished from all its congeners by the presence of a thick, densely plumose seta on the antennule segment 2 and the greatly enlarged tergal plate of the 4th pediger.
