The superfamily Bopyrina included three families as Dajidae (parasitic in the incubatory chamber or on the dorsal surface of the Mysids and Euphosiids), Bopyridae (in branchial cavity or on the abdominal cavity of the Anomuran and Macrura) and Entoniscidae (in visceral cavity of Brachyura and Anomura) (Hartnoll, 1960).
Tambien se le ha registrado en la costa continental del Pacifico colombiano (Wicksten, 1989; Lemaitre y Alvarez-Leon, 1992) y para varias localidades del Oceano Atlantico tambien por Wicksten (1989); otras observaciones indican que se le puede encontrar asociado al cirripedio Bopyrina abbreviata Richardson (Bophyridae: Ioninae) (Markham, 1988).
