Abstract
    The classification follows Huys (1991). These microscopic crustaceans, recognised in the 1980s, occur as ectoparasites on other host crustaceans, including the copepods, isopods, tanaids and amphipods. The data are drawn largely from Huys (1991), Boxshall & Vader (1993), Huys, Andersen and Kristensen (1992), and Huys, Boxshall and Casanova (1993).
