A new Allocyclops (Crustacea, Copepoda, Cyclopoida) from bromeliads and records of freshwater copepods from Mexico
TLDR
The cyclopoid copepod fauna of freshwater systems of the Mexican state of Veracruz, on the Gulf coast of Mexico, was completely unknown and five species were identified, including a new species of the cyclopine genus Allocyclops, which has not been hitherto found from bromeliads. Expand
On Kiefer’s American Eucyclops (Copepoda, Eucyclopinae): redescriptions and comments on the historical records of E. delachauxi, E. prionophorus, E. bondi and E. leptacanthus
TLDR
A revision of the American records of these species confirms that some are likely to refer to undescribed species and certainly deserves further study. Expand
A new species of Metacyclops Kiefer, 1927 (Copepoda, Cyclopidae, Cyclopinae) from the Chihuahuan desert, northern Mexico
Abstract A new species of the freshwater cyclopoid copepod genus Metacyclops Kiefer, 1927 is described from a single pond in northern Mexico, within the binational area known as the ChihuahuanExpand
Conservation status of the inland aquatic crustaceans in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico: shortcomings of a protection strategy
TLDR
The Yucatan Peninsula (YP), Mexico, is a large karstic Neotropical system hosting a highly diverse crustacean fauna related to epigean and subterranean aquatic habitats and is also an important area of endemism worldwide. Expand
Genus level molecular phylogeny of Aegisthidae Gisbrecht, 1893 (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) reveals morphological adaptations to deep-sea and plagic habitats
TLDR
DNA based phylogeny reveals the deep-sea origin of Aegisthidae by placing benthic AegistHidae gen. nov. and Cerviniellinae subfam. Expand
Distribution Patterns of the American Species of the Freshwater Genus Eucyclops (Copepoda: Cyclopoida)
TLDR
The closing of the marine barrier represented by the Isthmus of Panama seems to have been a key event in the northward and southward dispersal of Eucyclops in the Americas. Expand
Convergent evolution of mouthparts morphology between Siphonostomatoida and a new genus of deep-sea Aegisthidae Giesbrecht, 1893 (Copepoda: Harpacticoida)
TLDR
A striking new genus of Aegisthidae is discovered which exhibits convergent evolution of mouthpart morphology with that of siphonostomatoid copepods and represents a third major shift in the lifestyle of aegisthidCopepods, from benthic and hyperbenthic to associated forms (probably with sponges or cnidarians). Expand
Genetic structure and distributional patterns of the genus Mastigodiaptomus (Copepoda) in Mexico, with the description of a new species from the Yucatan Peninsula
TLDR
Within the new species three different populations were detected, two distributed in close localities (sympatric) and the third consistent with allopatric distribution, suggesting a Neotropical origin of the genus Mastigodiaptomus. Expand
Taxonomic revision of the Mexican Eucyclops (Copepoda: Cyclopoida) with comments on the biogeography of the genus
TLDR
The ornamentation patterns of the fourth swimming legs are proposed as reliable additional characters to recognise closely related species of Eucyclops and the importance of the antennal basis ornamentation in the taxonomy of the genus is supported by data. Expand
Revision of the Remaneicaris argentina-group (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Parastenocarididae): supplementary description of species, and description of the first semi-terrestrial Remaneicaris from the
TLDR
The present study extends the geographic distribution of the Remaneicaris genus, with the northernmost record until now being from El Salvador, and describes a new species from the tropical forest of Southeast Mexico, its first record in epigean semi-terrestrial habitats. Expand
