Redescription of Bathygyge grandis Hansen, 1897 (Crustacea, Isopoda, Bopyridae) from Southern California with erection of a new subfamily, Bathygyginae.

Hansen (1897), dealing with only fragmentary material, erected the genus Bathygyge with B. grandis as its type-species as one of the earliest bopyrid species known from the eastern Pacific Ocean. Bathygyge grandis was first recorded as a parasite of the deep-water crangonid shrimp Glyphocrangon spmulosa Faxon from off the coast of Acapulco, Mexico. It has since been reported from several different localities worldwide as a parasite of other species of Glyphocrangon, but it has never been properly described. Material that recently became available from near the type-locality has made it possible to correct that situation.

Bathygyginae, new subfamily

Diagnosis. Branchially-infesting bopyrid. Female: Body outline roughly circular, with no straight margins. Head oval, much broader than long, deeply embedded in first pereomere and overreached by second oostegites. Maxilliped with subterminal triangular palp and slender pointed plectron. Barbula bearing two long slender projections laterally, bare medially. All pereomeres distinct dorsally, their margins irregularly curved. Pereopods all present, reduced. Coxal plates of pereomeres 1, 2 and/or 3 extending medially over dorsal surface of body. Oostegites 2-5 on both sides well-developed and completely enclosing enlarged brood pouch. Pleon of 6 incompletely separated pleomeres, its central axis greatly rotated to one side, posterior-most point of body side of pleomeres 1 and 2, pleomeres bearing blunt lateral plates but lacking all pleopods and uropods. Male: Body about 4 times as long as broad, fusiform in outline. Head narrower than first pereomere and distinct from it. Pereomeres deeply divided. Pereopods all with enlarged propodi with sockets receiving tips of sharply pointed dactyli. Pleon separated from last pereomere, suboval, bulbous, completely lacking all traces of segmentation or appendages. Only one genus and species known, Bathygyge grandis Hansen, 1897.

With a complete description of Bathygyge grandis, it now becomes possible to assess its systematic placement. Characters unique to B. grandis, which indicate that it should be in a subfamily of its own are: Female: Second oostegites extending beyond anterior margin of head; coxal plates of first and second pereomeres extending medially over dorsal surface of pereon; pleon strongly torsioned and pointing forward over pereon. Male: All pereopodal propodi bearing sockets into which tips of sharply pointed dactyli retract. Unusual characters (though in rare instances known from members of other subfamilies of the Bopyridae) are: Female: Body broadly oval, almost circular; head lacking frontal lamina; pereopods proportionately tiny. Male: Body very long relative to width; pleon completely lacking all traces of segmentation and all appendages. Hosts: All known in genus Glyphocrangon A. Milne-Edwards, 1881 (Caridea, Crangonoidea, Glyphocrangonidae).

Hansen (1897), whose description of Bathygyge grandis Richardson (1905) quoted verbatim and whose illustrations she reproduced, had "[ojnly a male, and the posterior part of a female." He did not figure the female at all but remarked on it thus: "Abdomen: It is turned to the left in a startling degree..." That extreme rotation of the pleon, figured and described herein, is unique for bopyrid females. The present male closely matches the description and figures of the type-male by Hansen (1897) (reproduced by Richardson, 1905). The only illustration prepared of Bathygyge grandis since the original description is that of An (2006), of Chinese material in a dissertation, which has limited accessibility because it is entirely in Chinese and unpublished; it only recently came to my attention. In her figure 28, she presents detailed drawings, the first known, of both sexes. Both the female and male illustrate the diagnostic characters of the species: the medially extending coxal plates of the first two pereomeres, the reduced pereopods and the strongly torsioned pleon of the female; and, in the male, the strongly separated head, pereomeres and pleon; prominent proximal lobes on the propodi of the pereopods of the first pair; and complete lack of segmentation and appendages of its pleon. There are however, several differences between the material herein described and that from China. In the Chinese female, the body is more nearly circular; the maxilliped's palp does not articulate, and its spur is much reduced; the first oostegite has a slightly more slender and longer posterolateral point, which is setose along its lateral margin; the posterior pereomeres bear tergal plates distinctly separated from the segments; and the lateral plates of the pleomeres are quite sharply pointed. In the Chinese male, the body is slightly curved; tiny colorless eyes are present next to the posterior edge of the head; and the pleon is attached to the last pereomere by a narrow peduncle. It is uncertain whether the propodi of that male's pereopods bear sockets receiving the tips of the dactyli, as in the male herein described. An et al. (2007), who published mention of the same material as An (2006), included a photograph (their fig. 1) of the parasite in place on its host but did not present drawings of the specimens themselves. Few specimens assigned to Bathygyge grandis have been examined in detail (only the male in the type-collection, only two females and two males in the present collection and a single one of each sex in the report from China). Thus there remains some doubt whether the distinctions cited here are consistent among the populations from opposite sides of the Pacific Ocean. If they are, the individuals from China should quite probably be considered representatives of a separate undescribed species. The status of specimens reported from elsewhere in the world is also uncertain. For now, however, I am retaining all of them in the synonymy of B. grandis presented above.

Branchial bopyrid parasites of caridean shrimps are most commonly members of the subfamily Bopyrinae, whose species are not known to infest any hosts but carideans. The small subfamily Argeiinae contains exclusively caridean-infesting parasites. In the large subfamily Pseudioninae, whose many species are typically parasites of anomurans, are a few species found as parasites of deep-water carideans. Bathygyge clearly does not belong in the Argeiinae, whose females, among other contrasting characters, have large rear-extending pleons of a very different shape. It has been dubiously assigned to the Bopyrinae (Shiino, 1965) or Pseudioninae (Markham, 1974) but does not fit well into either of those subfamilies for various reasons. Stebbins (2012a, 2012b) expressed doubt about its proper assignment to subfamily. Its unique placement, emphasized by the present erection of a new subfamily, may be a reflection of its occurrence as the only known bopyrid species infesting any member of the family Glyphocrangonidae, of which Glyphocrangon is the sole recognized genus.

Wicksten (1979) mentioned infestation of Glyphocrangon vicaria and called its parasite "Munidion sp." without any descriptive notes and later (Wicksten, 2009) repeated that record. I found her label in the container with the material herein redescribed, thereby confirming that I was dealing with the same specimens.
