Abstract

This is only the second report of the bopyrid isopod Parabopyrella thomasi (Nierstrasz & Brender à Brandis, 1929) since it was described. The species infests the arrow shrimp Tozeuma carolinense Kingsley, 1878, and this report of new material extends its known geographic distribution to the Caribbean coasts of Mexico. We provide data on some morphological variations in both sexes of this species as well as on the fecundity of this ectoparasite.
