Deep-sea Amphipoda of the Genus Lepechinella (Crustacea) J. Laurens Barnard Introduction Lepechinella Stebbing () and Paralepechin-ella Pirlot () formerly constituted the Lepech-inellidae, the only gammaridean family confined to the deep sea. Recently J. Barnard () transferred these genera to the Dexaminidae, thus.

The technological advances of the last twenty years have brought huge advances in our understanding of the deep sea and of the species inhabiting this elusive and fascinating environment.

Synthesising the very latest research and discoveries, this is a comprehensive and 5/5(3). SUMMarY: the genus Lepechinella Stebbing, has a cosmopolitan distribution and includes 28 species.

Amphipods are typically less than 10 millimetres ( in) long, but the largest recorded living amphipods were 28 centimetres (11 in) long, and were photographed at a depth of 5, metres (17, ft) in the Pacific Ocean. Samples from the Atlantic Ocean with a reconstructed length of 34 centimetres (13 in) have been assigned to the same species, Alicella : Malacostraca.

The genus Eurythenes S. Smith in Scudder,has been the focus of integrated molecular and morphological taxonomy studies in recent years, resulting in the number of species in the genus increasing from three to eight.

Whilst lists of deepwater Arctic and Subarctic amphipods have been published in a number of recent ecological papers (e.g. Brandt, ; WÍs³awski et al., ), very little ef fort has been invested in the study of the taxonomically interesting material gathered during such studies.

Similarly, a number of deep sea samples from. The bathyal to hadal deep sea of north-west Pacific Ocean was recently intensively sampled during four international expeditions (KuramBio I and II, SoJaBio and SokhoBio). A large amphipod, Rhachotropis saskia n. sp., was sampled in the Kuril-Kamchatka Trench and increases the number of described hadal species of that area to eight.

Introduction. The deep sea represents the largest ecosystem on our planet, yet our awareness of its fauna is remarkably recent, dating back to the Challenger expedition (–) (e.g.).In the last decades, an increasing number of studies were conducted to investigate the deep-sea benthic biodiversity in several regions of the world, revealing its unexpectedly high species diversity Cited by: "The second extensively expanded edition of the "Handbook of Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vent Fauna" gives on overview of our current knowledge on the animals living at hydrothermal vents.

The discovery of hydrothermal vents and progresses made during almost 30 years are outlined. A brief introduction is given on hydrothermal vent meiofauna and parasites.Phronima is a genus of small, deep sea hyperiid amphipods of the family is found throughout the world's oceans, except in polar regions.

Phronima species live in the pelagic zone of the deep ocean. Their bodies are semitransparent. Although commonly known as parasites, they are more technically correctly called parasitoids.

Instead of constantly feeding on a live host, females Class: Malacostraca.
