Stock, J.H. & A.G. Humes. Copepoda associated with Echinoidea from the West Indies. Studies nat. Hist. Caribbean Region 72, Amsterdam, 1995: 25-46. Four species of Copepoda (three Siphonostomatoida, one Poecilostomatoida) are recorded as associates of shallow-water echinoids, from Curaçao, St. Martin, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas. The siphonostomatoids Chelacheres longipalpus and C. optans belong to a new genus and species of the family Asterocheridae. Another species of the same family is provisionally attributed to Asterocheres simulans (T. Scott, 1898), previously recorded from Europe only. A fourth species, of the genus Pseudanthessius (family Pseudanthessiidae), belongs to a new species, Ps. exilicornis.
