Iorgu Petrescu,  and Thomas M. Iliffe.  1992. Contributions to the knowledge of cumacean species (Crustacea, Cumacea) of British Blue Holes (Andros Island, Bahama Islands). Travaux du Museum d'Histoire Naturelle "Grigore Antipa", 32:283-301.

In a very small lot of Cumaceans (15 specimens) from British Blue Holes (submarine caves of Andros Island, the greatest island of Bahama Archipelago, in the north-west of this archipelago), collected by drs. Warner and Moore, between 1981-1982 (during two British expeditions) and sent to be studied to the "Grigore Antipa" Natural History Museum from Bucharest, we identified 6 new species of Cumella (Cumewingia) carivveana, Bacescu, 1971 and a male of  Campylaspis (Bacescua) heardi Muradian- Ciamician, 1980.  The material has been provided courtesy of Dr. Mihai Bacescu, member of the Romanian Academy.
