A new species of harpacticoid, Parastenocaris distincta sp. nov., is described and discussed. The new species was collected in a freshwater interstitial habitat near the mouth of a river in Western Mindoro Province, the Philippines. This is the second species of Parastenocaris described from this country. The medial ornamentation of P1 basis, the morphology of male P3 and the number and distribution of the integumental pores in the new species differ from those previously reported in other… Expand

A new species of Parastenocaris from Korea, with a redescription of the closely related P. biwae from Japan (Copepoda: Harpacticoida: Parastenocarididae)
TLDR
It is speculated that the present distribution of the brevipes group may be a combination of ancient vicariance and subsequent dispersal, with a possible origin in the Gondwanaland, in the rift valley between Australia and India. Expand
NEw TAXON OF INTERSTITIAL LAOPHONTIDAE FROM THE INDO-PACIFIC : AequinoctiellA gEN . NOV . ( COPEPODA : HARPACTICOIDA ) . V . cottArelli ,
– A new genus of the harpacticoid family Laophontidae T. Scott, 1905 is described here. Aequinoctiella gen. nov. includes two species: A. cavallettii sp. nov., collected from the interstitial habitatExpand
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
Two new stygobiotic species of Elaphoidella (Crustacea: Copepoda: Harpacticoida) with comments on geographical distribution and ecology of harpacticoids from caves in Thailand.
TLDR
The geographical distribution and ecology of Harpacticoida from Thai caves is presented and the new species were collected from pools filled by percolating water from the unsaturated zone of a karstic aquifer in Phitsanulok and Lampang Provinces. 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 genus and two new species of Parastenocarididae (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from southeastern India
TLDR
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)
TLDR
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
Molecular and morphological evidence for short range endemism in the Kinnecaris solitaria complex (Copepoda: Parastenocarididae), with descriptions of seven new species
TLDR
Detailed morphological and molecular observations indicate that the diversity of the harpacticoid genus Kinnecaris is not dealing with one widely distributed and variable species in the Yilgarn region, but rather with a complex of short range endemics. Expand
Diversity and distribution of copepods (Class: Maxillopoda, Subclass: Copepoda) in groundwater habitats across South-East Asia

Variations in microcrustacean (Crustacea: Cladocera, Copepoda) assemblages from selected groundwater-dependent ecosystems in the greater Luzon and Mindoro Island faunal regions (Philippines): insights to tropical groundwater ecology
TLDR
Species rarefaction analysis revealed low species richness in sampled sites within the region, supporting the existing notion that temperate groundwater-dependent ecosystems were more diverse, and faunal composition in terms of ecological groups is extremely different in tropical and temperate settings.
