Info

During an expedition to the seamounts on the Caroline Plate in the North-West Pacific, initiated by the Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IOCAS) from June to July 2019, a previously unknown deep-sea amphipode was discovered with the aid of the ROV Faxian.
This discovery brings the number of known Epimeria species of the North Pacific to nine.

Coloration. Freshly caught specimens of Epimeria liui. show distinct orange eyes and a pink to ivory body.

Etymology. The species has been named in honor of the late Prof. Dr. Ruiyu Liu (J.Y. Liu), from the Institute of Oceanology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, for his great contribution to China's carcinology.
