Little Sea Isopod by the ocean?

Recommended Posts

Why is Cubaris murina called the "Little Sea Isopod"?  Are these found by the ocean?

I think murina means mouse but somebody found the originals in Florida (almost everything there is not too far from the ocean) and  originally confused the species name with marina.

I thought it was because they look like the giant deepsea isopods

No, that's even sillier.
