Abstract

Most of the genera in the important deep-sea isopod family Eurycopidae need revision. In this paper, the type-genus Eurycope is revised, and three new genera (Disconectes, Tytthocope, and Belonectes) are proposed to contain some of the species removed from it. The new genera are based on redescribed type-species, permitting more precise generic placement of other species. New records are given for Disconectes phalangium and Belonectes parvus.
