A survey of the Spanish Euphyllopoda
The study of many euphyllopod populations found in various locations throughout Spain on severa1 sampling trips has enabled the identification of 15 species: 10 anostraceans, 2 notostraceans and 3
Anostraca, Cladocera and Copepoda of Spanish saline lakes
The Spanish halobiontic fauna seems to be very old judging by the existence of some isolated species, e.g. B. orientalis, which may be a Tertiary relic and persistence through time could have resulted from the continuous aridity of some Iberian localities during the Pleistocene and the ecological constancy of wetlands maintained by regional groundwater discharges.
Alona iberica, New Species: First Evidence of Noncosmopolitanism within the A. karua Complex (Cladocera: Chydoridae)
This new species is endemic to the western part of the Iberian Peninsula and Minorca and differs from an Australian population and previous descriptions of A. karua (King) in having the posterodorsal comer of carapace higher and the preanal angle of the postabdomen higher.
A new fairy shrimp Phallocryptus tserensodnomi (Branchiopoda: Anostraca) from Mongolia.
A new species of Phallocryptus Biraben 1951 (Branchiopoda, Anostraca) from Mongolia is described, and based on morphological comparisons thenew species appears to be a Mongolian endemic, although some genotypes of presumed P spinosa from Africa are similar to the new species, suggesting P. tserensodnomi might have a wider distribution.
Branchiopoda and Copepoda (Crustacea) in Mongolian Saline Lakes
This paper presents a very complete inventory of the branchiopods and copepods that inhabit the salt lakes (salinity >3‰) of Mongolia. The inventory was based on samples collected from 108 salt lakes
Anostraca, Cladocera and Copepoda of Spanish saline lakes
A study of 102 samples from almost all salt water bodies in Spain has allowed the preparation of a comprehensive list of anostracans, cladocerans and copepods living in such extreme environments.

  • 1 September 1985
The morphological and ecological differences between the two taxa are pointed out and comparison is made with another closely related Rumanian form (Daphnia cf. mediterranea) and with the related Spanish species (D. atkinsoni and D. chevreuxi).
Morphological Differentiation of two new Ephemeroporus species (Cladocera, Chydoridae) belonging to the barroisi complex: E. margalefi and E. epiaphantoii, in Spain
The taxonomic study has been carried out optical and scanning electronic microscopes on individuals of both sexes belonging to different populations, and it is pertinent to suggest that perhaps E. epiaphantoii may release E. barroisi from the nomen dubium status.
New species of Alona from South-East Russia and Mongolia related to Alona salina Alonso, 1996 (Cladocera: Anomopoda: Chydoridae)
Two new species of genus Alona Baird, 1843 were found in regions along the south-east border of Asian Russia, and detailed morphology of Alona salina, including that of juveniles, was studied for the first time.
