L'ostracode Mungava riseri Maddocks, sp. n. (Tribu Thalassocypridini, Famille Cyprididae), trouvé fixé sur les branchies d'un vers, Eurythoe parvecarunculata, semble manger ces branchies et être un parasite du vers. L'annélide elle-même est un symbionte des tarets Teredo et Nototeredo, qui vivent dans des galeries forées dans des bois recueillis en Floride et à Panama. Deux femelles d'une nouvelle espèce de Pontocypria ont été trouvées sur Echinocardium flavescens dans l'Atlantique nord. On ignore le mode d'attachement et la position sur l'Oursin. Deux autres associations d'Ostracodes avec une Eponge et avec l'Oursin Diadema, sont aussi mentionnées, mais elles sont probablement accidentelles.
