Four new small subterranean cyclopid species are described from Australia in a newly erected genus Anzcyclops n. gen.: A. yarriensis n. sp. (type), A. belli n. sp., A. ballensis n. sp., and A. euryantennula n. sp. Three species are from the Pilbara region in Western Australia, the fourth species from central Queensland. Another previously described species from New Zealand is transferred to this genus, A. silvestris (Harding, 1958) n. comb., originally described in the genus Goniocyclops… 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
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
Two new Thermocyclops species (Copepoda, Cyclopoida) from Thailand, with notes on the genus phylogeny inferred from 18S and ITS sequences
TLDR
Both morphological data and reconstructed phylogenies reveal the two new species as only distantly related, which probably facilitates their sympatry. Expand
The genus Schizopera (Copepoda, Harpacticoida) in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, with description of a new species and its molecular and morphological affinities
TLDR
An overview of the genus in the Pilbara highlights the need for more extensive sampling and for the use of molecular data to resolve issues of disjunct distribution patterns and delineation of morphologically similar species. Expand
A new genus and two new species of cave-dwelling cyclopoids (Crustacea, Copepoda) from the epikarst zone of Thailand and up-to-date keys to genera and subgenera of the Bryocyclops and Microcyclops groups
Two obligate cave-dwelling species of cyclopoid copepods (Copepoda, Cyclopoida) were discovered inside caves in central Thailand. Siamcyclops cavernicolus gen. et sp. nov. was recognised as a memberExpand
Two new species of stygobitic Anzcyclops (Copepoda: Cyclopoida: Cyclopidae) from Australia
Two new, small subterranean species of the genus Anzcyclops Karanovic, Eberhard & Murdoch, 2011 are described from the Pilbara region in Western Australia. Both Anzcyclops trotteri sp. nov. andExpand
Metacyclops woni n. sp., a New Cyclopoid Species (Copepoda: Cyclopoida: Cyclopidae) from Cambodia
A new cyclopoid species belonging to the genus Metacyclops Kiefer, 1927 is described, based upon the specimens from a temporary pool in a forest of Mt. Phnom Domnak Dambouk, situated in theExpand
Apocyclops cmfri sp. nov. (Cyclopoda : Cyclopoida : Cyclopidae), a new copepod species from Arabian Sea off Karwar, Karnataka, India
A new species of Apocyclops Lindberg (Cyclopoda: Cyclopoida: Cyclopidae) is described based on specimens collected from marine waters of Karwar, Karnataka, India. At present, there are 11 valid andExpand
First Record of the Harpacticoid Genus Morariopsis (Crustacea: Copepoda: Canthocamptidae) in Japan, and its Zoogeographic Implications
TLDR
It is suggested that ancient lakes also act as biodiversity pumps for subterranean habitats, and that the ancestor of this species first colonised benthic habitats of ancient Lake Biwa, during its tectonic formation, and from there colonised subterranean waters in its surroundings during the major climatic changes of the Quaternary. Expand

Meridiecyclops, gen. nov., a new cyclopid genus (Crustacea : Copepoda : Cyclopidae) from southern Australia
TLDR
Certain unique features of both taxa, as displayed in the morphology of the fourth leg, the female genital field and, not least, in the remarkable dimorphism of the maxilla in the male, justify the erection of a separate genus, Meridiecyclops. Expand
On the diagnostic characters of the genus Stygonitocrella (Copepoda, Harpacticoida), with descriptions of seven new species from Australian subterranean waters
TLDR
A revision of the genus Stygonitocrella was made, based on a cladistic approach by using 57 phylogenetically informative morphological characters, revealing the presence of six monophyletic groups, giving ground for the establishment of six new genera, three of them created to accommodate a single new Australian species. Expand
First Haplocyclops Kiefer (Crustacea, Copepoda) from Indian subterranean waters : the most reduced free-living cyclopoid
TLDR
The degree of reductions concerning the segmentation of the swimming legs makes the new species of small cyclopoids from subterranean waters of India the most reduced free-living cyclopoid, with both rami of third and fourth legs, as well as the endopod of second leg being one-segmented in both sexes. Expand
Amsterdam Expeditions to the West Indian Islands, Report 45. Cyclopids (Crustacea, Copepoda) from West Indian groundwater habitats
TLDR
The cyclopid fauna of the West Indian islands is much more closely related to the South and Central American fauna than to the faunas of North America. Expand
Cladocera and free-living Copepoda from the Fouta Djalon and adjacent mountain areas in West Africa
TLDR
Thirty-two species of Cladocera and 27 species of free-living copepods were identified in a series of samples collected in and around the Fouta Djalon mountains, West Africa; the bulk of the fauna is evidently of tropical origin. Expand
First representative of the genus Allocyclops Kiefer, 1932 (Crustacea, Copepoda, Cyclopoida) from the Australian subterranean waters
TLDR
A new species of the genus Allocyclops Kiefer, 1932 (Cyclopidae, Cyclopinae) is described from the subterranean waters of Barrow Island, Western Australia, and has not any close relatives among the recent known species. Expand
Freshwater cyclopoids and harpacticoids (Crustacea: Copepoda) from the Gnangara Mound region of Western Australia
TLDR
The copepod fauna recorded in the caves and springs of the Gnangara Mound region are comparable, with respect to species richness, endemicity and the varying degrees of dependency on ground water, to those reported from similar habitats in South Australia and Western Australia. Expand

Eight species of cyclopoid copepods were recorded from 1979–1983 in the complex microhabitats of a wet campo (campo úmido) marsh in central Brazil, and a key to the New World species of Metacyclops s. Expand
Setal developmental patterns of thoracopods of the Cyclopidae (Copepoda : Cyclopoida) and their use in phylogenetic inference
TLDR
Variations in developmental patterns were used to generate a phylogenetic hypothesis of thoracopod development and the ancestral states of the resulting individual rami are, by default, the morphology that results from the pleiotropic regulatory process. Expand
