What does IAIS mean?
- Iais is a genus of isopod crustaceans. Iais species are found in association with larger isopods of the family Sphaeromatidae, usually on the ventral surface of the larger animal, between the pereiopods and on the pleopods. They are native to Australasia and South America, although Iais californica and its host Sphaeroma quoyanum have invaded California, and I. californica was first described from Sausalito, California. Nine species are recognised: Iais aquilei Coineau, 1977 Iais californica Iais chilensis Iais elongata Sivertsen & Holthuis, 1980 Iais floridana Kensley & Schotte, 1999 Iais pubescens Iais singaporensis Menzies & Barnard, 1951 Iais solangae Coineau, 1985
