Weibchen, Männchen und Jugendstadien des Isopoden Lironeca puhi n. sp. werden beschrieben. L. puhi ist ein verbreiteter Parasit des hawaiischen moray eel Gymnothorax eurostus. Im allgemeinen leben ein Männchen und ein Weibchen zusammen in einer Kiemenkammer, in der die meisten Kiemenfilamente fehlen. L. puhi ist ein protandrischer Hermaphrodit. Es wird gezeigt, dass die Gegenwart eines Weibchens einen masculinisierenden Einfluss auf das Männchen ausübt, indem die Transformation des letzteren in ein Weibchen gehemmt wird.
