Abstract An annotated checklist of the free-living freshwater Copepoda recorded in different regions in Ecuador (including the Amazon, the Andes, the coastal region, and the Galapagos Islands) is here provided. We revised all published records, critically evaluated the validity of each taxon and provided short taxonomic and biogeographical remarks for each one. A total of 27 taxa have been reported, including species and records at the generic level only. The species and taxa identified only up… Expand

Acanthocyclops americanus (Marsh, 1892), first described in Wisconsin (USA), was discovered shortly thereafter in Great Britain and then widely distributed in the Palearctic. Its current rangeExpand

Global diversity of copepods (Crustacea: Copepoda) in freshwater
TLDR
Faunal diversity is compared between zoogeographic regions: the Palaearctic region has more than double the species richness of the next most diverse region, the Neotropical, and the greatest faunal connectivity is between PalAearctic and Nearctic regions, and identifies the Holarctic taxa. Expand
The neotropical species of Mesocyclops (Copepoda, Cyclopoida): an upgraded identification key and comments on selected taxa
TLDR
An analysis of upgraded characters used in the taxonomy of cyclopine copepods to provide a new key for the identification of the members of the freshwater genus Mesocyclops recorded in the neotropical region results in clarification of the taxonomical status of two nominal species not previously revised.

Taxonomic revision of the Mexican Eucyclops (Copepoda: Cyclopoida) with comments on the biogeography of the genus
TLDR
The ornamentation patterns of the fourth swimming legs are proposed as reliable additional characters to recognise closely related species of Eucyclops and the importance of the antennal basis ornamentation in the taxonomy of the genus is supported by data. Expand
ON THE TAXONOMIC STATUS OF TWO NEOTROPICAL MESOCYCLOPS (COPEPODA, CYCLOPOIDA): EVIDENCE FROM UPGRADED DESCRIPTIONS
TLDR
It is confirmed that M. brasilianus and M. meridianus are in fact valid, separate taxa, based on previously undetected differences in the ornamentation of the antennules, antennal basis, maxillulae,maxillae, and swimming legs 3 and 4, among other structures. Expand
CHECKLIST OF PLANKTONIC COPEPODA FROM A COLOMBIAN COASTAL LAGOON WITH RECORD OF HALICYCLOPS EXIGUUS KIEFER
TLDR
One of them: Halicyclops exiguus Kiefer, 1934 is new to the Colombian copepod fauna; comparative morphological comments and illustrations of this species are also provided. Expand
The Afromontane Cladocera (Crustacea: Branchiopoda) of the Rwenzori (Uganda–D. R. Congo): taxonomy, ecology and biogeography
TLDR
The Rwenzori Cladocera fauna is characterized by a strong extratropical temperate component and a low level of speciation/endemism, and a new term for high-altitude, cold-water habitats in the tropics, which act as climatic islands for extratopical freshwater faunas, Löffler Islands, is introduced.

TWO NEW SPECIES OF CLETOCAMPTUS (COPEPODA: HARPACTICOIDA) FROM GALÁPAGOS, CLOSELY RELATED TO THE COSMOPOLITAN C. DEITERSI
TLDR
Two new Cletocamptus species, C. axi and C. schmidti, collected from lagoons of the Islands of Santa Cruz and Floreana, Galápagos Archipelago, are described and illustrated and their co-occurrence at one study site suggests the existence of two distinct species, without intermediates, in the GaláPagos Islands.

A redescription of Eucyclops serrulatus (Fischer, 1851) (Crustacea: Copepoda: Cyclopoida) and some related taxa, with a phylogeny of the E. serrulatus‐group
TLDR
A phylogenetic tree based on molecular information shows that E. serrulatus and E. speratus should be regarded as separate species; E. dumonti also deserves species status, but not E. hadjebensis. Expand
