Eirinicaris antonioi gen. et sp. n. (Parastenocaridinae) is described from the Brazilian rocky savannas, an ecosystem under heavy anthropogenic pressure. The subfamily is distributed worldwide, with representatives in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America. This is the first time a non-Remaneicaris Parastenocaridinae is described from a Neotropical region indicating that Parastenocaridinae species were already present in a vast geographical area, before the split of the Gondwana… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

A new genus of Parastenocarididae Chappuis, 1940 (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from the Amazonian Region, Brazil, with close affinity to Murunducaris Reid, 1994
The new genus Santaremicaris is closely related to Murunducaris Reid, 1994, with males sharing conspicuous ornamentation on the inner margin of the first swimming leg basis, represented either by an enlarged spinule accompanied by minute accessory spinules or by a row of strong spinules. Expand
A new species of Psammonitocrella Huys, 2009 (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Ameiridae) from California (USA), with a discussion of the relationship between Psammonitocrella and Parastenocarididae
Evidence suggesting a sister-group relationship with Parastenocarididae—both share the loss of the inner seta on the first endopodal segment of the first leg—indicates that the Parasteniadidae should be included into the Ameiridae. Expand
Morphological and molecular characterization of three new Parastenocarididae (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from caves in Southern Italy
The morphological and molecular data indicate that the genera belonging to the two subfamilies Parastenocaridinee and Fontinalicaridinae form two monophyletic and distinct clades, thus supporting their status. Expand

Plesionika edwardsii ( J.F. Brandt in von Middendorf, 1851) is a cosmopolitan species that inhabits cold temperate and subarctic waters between 50 and 680 m. In the Azorean region, this is the secondExpand
Continental copepods (Crustacea: Hexanauplia) of Colombia: revision and additions to the inventory
We present the compilation of published and unpublished records of continental copepods of Colombia, as well as personal observations by the authors, yielding an additional list of 52 species andExpand
An updated checklist of groundwater crustaceans of India
Only eight groundwater crustacean species were known in India till the end of 20 th century. Analysis of about 4000 samples collected during 2000-2016 from diverse groundwater habitats, especially inExpand


Establishment of a new genus for Parastenocaris itica (Copepoda, Harpacticoida) from El Salvador, Central America, with discussion of the Parastenocaris fontinalis and P. proserpina groups
A new genus of Parastenocarididae is described from the Neotropical region, described from El Salvador, Central America, and represented by Iticocaris itica, the males of which both share the forceps-like elongated apophysis. Expand
A new genus and two new species of Parastenocarididae (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from southeastern India
The highly diagnostic synapomorphy of the new genus Indocaris is a composite character associated with the male leg 4 basis: five or six prominent, imbricate, enlarged, petal-like spinules, arranged as a semi-whorl at the insertion of the endopod and increasing in size from internal to external. Expand
First Record of Parastenocarididae from Thailand and Description of a New Genus (Copepoda: Harpacticoida)
The apomorphic characters of Asiacaris are represented by the sexual dimorphism of P2 (stronger in male than in female), the fusion of the P5 to the intercoxal sclerite and to the somite and, mostly, by the overall transformation of P4 in the male, which is the longest and strongest leg. Expand
Third genus of Parastenocaridid Copepods from Australia supported by molecular evidence (Copepoda, Harpacticoida)
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
Redefinition of the parastenocaridid genus Proserpinicaris (Copepoda: Harpacticoida), with description of three new species from Korea
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
Stammericaris Jakobi, 1972 redefined and a new genus of Parastenocarididae (Copepoda, Harpacticoida)
This study deals with two genera proposed by Jakobi (1972a), i.e., Stammericaris and Phreaticaris. Their species are characterised by the same kind of complex endopod P4 male which is unique withinExpand
Monodicaris Gen. N. (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Parastenocarididae) from West Africa
[A new genus of Parastenocarididae, Monodicaris gen. n., is described from West Africa. It has many characters in common with the genus Kinnecaris Jakobi, 1972 but lacks the most distinctive featureExpand
This species is the first hyporheic species from the Ganges River system in the Garhwal Himalayas and the second one from the Himalayan rivers and the phylogenetic position of the new taxon within Parastenocarididae is discussed. Expand
High-Level Phylogenetic Relationships within Parastenocarididae (Copepoda, Harpacticoida)
Two new taxa can be distinguished mainly by the male antennules, the endopod of female leg 3, spinules on the basis of male leg 4, the female genital field, and the setation of the caudal rami in Parastenocarididae. Expand
Revision of Brasilibathynellocaris Jakobi, 1972 (Copepoda: Harpacticoida: Parastenocarididae) with redefinition of the genus
The present work favours revalidation of Brasilibathynellocaris, arguing for its monophyly, and two monophyletic species groups are newly proposed and diagnosed. Expand
