A review of Malaysian freshwater Copepoda with notes on new records and little known species

  title={A review of Malaysian freshwater Copepoda with notes on new records and little known species},
  author={Richard P. Lim and Constantine Herbert Fernando},
Twenty species of freeliving Cyclopoida occurring in freshwaters of Peninsula Malaysia were recorded. Twelve species are new records. Illustrated descriptions of these species are given. A list of Malaysian Calanoida is given. Cosmopolitanism is discussed with reference to Mesocyclops, Macrocyclops, and Thermocyclops.

Five cyclopoid species of the subfamily Cyclopinae, Cyclops vicinus, Mesocyclops dissimilis, M. ruttneri, Thermocyclops crassus and T. taihokuensis are described from small ponds in Kyushu, withExpand
A new Oriental species of Mesocyclops (Copepoda: Cyclopidae)
It is suggested that MesocyClops ferjemurami is closely related to Mesocyclops pehpeiensis Hu, 1943 and Mesocy clops papuensis Van de Velde, 1987. Expand
A note on the Diaptomidae of Thailand, including redescription of three species and description of a new species (Copepoda, Calanoida)
The synonymy of these two species is discussed, and it is clarified that Lai & Fernando (1981) and others had erroneously identified and/or described N. yangtsekiangensis and A. calcarus as Arctodiaptomus bacillifer and NeodiaPTomus mephistopheles Brehm, respectively. Expand
Redescription of Mesocyclops aspericornis (Daday, 1906) (Copepoda: Cyclopoida) from an Indian pond
The morphology of a cyclopoid copepod from a tropical pond is redescribed in detail and a stouter first endopodite segment of the antennae and an upwardly bent spine on the first exopodites segment of P2 and spinules on the genital segment are described for the first time. Expand

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
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


The freshwater Calanoida (Crustacea: Copepoda) of Thailand
The peculiarity of the Thai Calanoida and their distribution is discussed in a Southeast Asia context and a taxonomic key to the Thai Calvinoida is formulated. Expand
The freeliving freshwater cyclopoid copepoda (crustacea) of Malaysia and Singapore
There appears to be a reduction in Cyclopoida from temperate to tropical latitudes, but the data on which this are based are at present fragmentary. Expand
Zoogeographical distribution of Southeast Asian freshwater Calanoida
This paper reviews the systematic status and geographical distribution of 30 odd species of freshwater calanoid copepods in Southeast Asia and the implication of a north-south diminishing of copepod species to inland fisheries is postulated. Expand
Redescription of Neodiaptomus Botulifer Kiefer and one of its related species (Calanoida: Copepoda)
The problem associated with the systematics of a freshwater calanoida copepoda, Neodiaptomus bouulifer Kiefer and one of its related forms was described and a new species is created in its place. Expand
The Malaysian Tropodiaptomus (Copepoda : Calanoida) and its distribution
In Peninsular Malaysia there are three species of Tropodiaptomus namely: T. hebereri Kiefer, T. ruttneri Brehm, and T. vicinus Kiefer. The last species is most common in swampy habitats along theExpand
The freshwater calanoida (crustacea : copepoda) of Singapore and Peninsular Malaysia
The systematics and geographical distribution of Malaysian and Singapore freshwater calanoid copepods are discussed in details and the only species that cut across a wide range of geographical barriers are N. handeli and Tropodiaptomus. Expand
Les copépodes en Sri Lanka (Calanoïdes et Cyclopoïdes)
A revision of the list of Copepoda produced recently by Fernando (1980) was necessary to take in account the progress of knowledge in this field, and seven of them keep their name and another one is placed in another genus. Expand
Vergleichende Untersuchungen über Morphologie, Taxonomie und geographische Verbreitung der Arten der Gattung Tropodiaptomus Kiefer (Copepoda: Calanoida) aus asiatischen Binnengewässern
Of the 20 names hitherto given for species or varieties, one is a ‘nomen nudum’, 9 forms are characterized insufficiently and, hence, their taxonomical position is still uncertain, 10 species are redescribed and illustrated, and 2 taxa have proved to be new to science. Expand
The Rotifera of Malaysia and Singapore with remarks on some species
7 new genera and over 50 species, subspecies, varieties and forms have been added to the Malaysian and Singaporean Rotifera records and interesting and marked morphological and size variation in species from previous records, have been noted. Expand
Revision of the African species of the genus Mesocyclops Sars, 1914 (Copepoda: Cyclopidae)
In future one should critically reconsider the so-called cosmopolitan species; they may indeed represent a complex of related taxa, each with a geographical range more restricted than that of the species-complex itself. Expand
