Subterranean copepods (Crustacea, Copepoda) from the Pilbara region in Western Australia
Subterranean copepods have been studied from 160 samples (from around 150 different localities) in the Pilbara region, collected by the Department of Conservation and Land Management, WesternExpand
Marine Interstitial Poecilostomatoida and Cyclopoida (Copepoda) of Australia
TLDR
This book offers the first data about two large orders from the Australian marine interstitial, and helped the author to recognize new zoogeographic regions in Australia. Expand
A new genus and species of the family Ectinosomatidae (Crustacea : Copepoda : Harpacticoida) from the groundwaters of India
TLDR
The new genus Rangabradya has the exopodites and basiendopodite of the fifth leg completely fused, without surface seta, as well as a characteristic appearance of the antennula, antenna and maxilla. Expand
THE GENUS METACYCLOPS KIEFER IN AUSTRALIA (CRUSTACEA COPEPODA CYCLOPODIA), WITH DESCRIPTION OF TWO NEW SPECIES
Two new species of the genus Metacyclops Kiefer, 1927 are described from subterranean waters of Western Australia, one from the Kimberley region and the other from the Pilbara region. They bothExpand
New insights into polyphyly of the harpacticoid genus Delavalia (Crustacea, Copepoda) through morphological and molecular study of an unprecedented diversity of sympatric species in a small South
TLDR
Three new genera, each supported by molecular data and a number of morphological synapomorphies, were erected to accommodate the newly discovered species and some previously described members of Delavalia: Wellstenhelia gen. nov., Itostenheliinae gen.Nov. Expand
Third genus of Parastenocaridid Copepods from Australia supported by molecular evidence (Copepoda, Harpacticoida)
TLDR
The first ever case of two sympatric parastenocaridids in Australia, which are a rare group on this continent, is reported on, and a very strong seasonal dynamics in this subterranean community was observed, and this is a novel concept for these ecosystems globally. Expand
Two new subterranean Parastenocarididae (Crustacea, Copepoda, Harpacticoida) from Western Australia
TLDR
Two new species of the genus Parastenocaris Kessler, 1913 are described from Australian subterranean waters, both based upon males and females, and the present state of systematics within the family Parastsenocarididae is briefly discussed. Expand
Cryptic Species or Inadequate Taxonomy? Implementation of 2D Geometric Morphometrics Based on Integumental Organs as Landmarks for Delimitation and Description of Copepod Taxa.
TLDR
This study investigates a subterranean species complex belonging to the harpacticoid genus Schizopera Sars, 1905 using both the barcoding mitochondrial COI gene and landmark-based two-dimensional geometric morphometrics and argues that many supposedly cryptic species might not be cryptic if researchers focus on analyzing morphological structures with multivariate tools that explicitly take into account geometry of the phenotype. Expand
A Cladistic Analysis and Taxonomic Revision of Australian Metacyclops and Goniocyclops , with Description of Four New Species and Three New Genera (Copepoda, Cyclopoida)
TLDR
Four new small subterranean cyclopid species are described from Australia in a newly erected genus Anzcyclops, which has a number of unique features, including dorsoventrally compressed habitus, reticulated integument of prosomites, and a characterstic shape of the fifth leg. Expand
Redefinition of the parastenocaridid genus Proserpinicaris (Copepoda: Harpacticoida), with description of three new species from Korea
TLDR
The genus Proserpinicaris Jakobi, 1972, as redefined here, is Palaearctic in distribution, with the centre of diversity in southern Europe, and 20 valid members, all of which share a large hyaline spiniform structure on the male fourth leg basis as a synapomorphy. Expand
