Twenty-one species of free-living isopods, and six species of parasitic bopyrids are recorded from the Indian River Lagoon. The distribution of this fauna bears out the zoogeographically transitional nature of the area, but also emphasizes its strong subtropical affinities. The seasonal abundance of the three most common species in Halodule seagrass beds, viz. Erichsonella attenuata, Harrieta faxoni, and Edotea montosa suggests that the various regions of the Indian River Lagoon are not biologically closely coupled, and that seasonal predation pressure may account for lowered numbers during the summer months.
