Abstract
    The classification follows Grygier (1987). These highly transformed thecostracan crustaceans occur as parasites of echinoderms and corals. The data for European waters are drawn largely from the unpublished PhD thesis of Grygier (Grygier, 1983a), from Grygier (1983b), from Moyse (1983) and Stone & Moyse (1985).
