Epicaridean Isopods of Bermuda
Abstract:Eleven species of epicaridean isopods are now known to occur in Bermuda, and there is evidence that a 12th is present. Ten of the species belong to the Bopyridae (parasitic on decapod crustaceans) and one each to the Cabiropsidae (parasitic on isopods) and the Cryptoniscidae (here parasitic on a cirripede). A key to the families, genera, and species considered is presented. For each species, the original description, the original use of the accepted name, synonyms if they exist, and the known range are cited, and remarks are made on any unusual characters and on the species' occurrence in Bermuda and elsewhere.
