The amphipods Ischyrocerus commensalis and Gammaropsis inaequistylis were found on the spider crab Chionoecetes opilio collected in shallow water in Bonne Bay, Newfoundland. The first and second gnathopods have similar morphologies in these two species. Gammaropsis inaequistylis was also found on another spider crab, Hyas araneus, in Bonne Bay and Conception Bay, Newfoundland.
