  • Corophiidea Leach, 1814

Corophiida is an infraorder of amphipods that contains the two parvorders Caprellidira (skeleton shrimp and whale lice) and Corophiidira.[1]

In 2003-2013 this group was treated as a suborder, Corophiidea, which in turn had been re-established to contain the taxa previously treated as the suborder Caprellidea, together with some families formerly placed in the suborder Gammaridea.[2][3] More recently, the group was made part of the new suborder Senticaudata.[1][4]
