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 Chihuahuan Desert. This species belongs to a group of Metacyclops species with a 3443 spine formula of swimming legs. It is morphologically similar to Metacyclops lusitanus Lindberg, 1961 but differs from this and other congeners by having a unique combination of characters, including a caudal rami length/width… Expand

Miocene Cyclopid Copepod from a Saline Paleolake in Mojave, California
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the ancestor of Apocyclops, similar in morphology to some cave-dweller Metacyclops occurring today in the peri-Mediterranean region, might have arrived in North America from Europe via the Thulean North Atlantic bridge in the late Paleocene—early Eocene. Expand
Characteristics of Orders and Families with a List of European Genera and Species
TLDR
Both analyses (morphological and molecular) recover several monophyletic lineages within the Calanoida that largely conform to the superfamilies recognized in intuitive classification by Andronov (1974), Park (1986), and Boxshall and Halsey (2004). Expand
