Abstract A new species of Metacyclops is described from hyporheic waters and small rock depression with leaf litter in North Vietnam, the Tam Đao Mountains). Metacyclops amicitiae sp. n. can be distinguished from its congeners by the unique combination of the following characters: 12-segmented antennule, distal segment of P4 endopodite bearing a single apical spine, and the surface ornamentation of the intercoxal sclerites in P1–P4 (pilose on the distal margin of P1-P4 and spinulose on the… Expand

In wells of the islands of Barbados and Aruba (West Indies) two new species of Metacyclops were found, one of which may have evolved from mendocinus-like ancestors, but differs obviously in comparison with the morphologically similar species M. aequatorialis Dussart, 1977 and M. chelazzi Dumont, 1981.

Vicariant speciation due to 1.55 Ma isolation of the Ryukyu islands, Japan, based on geological and GenBank data
The Ryukyu island arc, originally a continental margin arc, separated from the Chinese continent by the rifting of the Okinawa trough, a process which began at 1.55 million years ago (Ma) and continues to the present, supports this hypothesis by drawing linearized maximum likelihood (ML) phylogenetic trees of the species in four endemic insect groups using GenBank sequence data.
