Cyclestheria hislopi is thought to be the only extant species of Cyclestherida. It is the sister taxon of all Cladocera and displays morphological characteristics intermediate of Spinicaudata and Cladocera. Using one mitochondrial (COI) and two nuclear (EF1α and 28S rRNA) markers, we tested the hypothesis that C. hislopi represents a single circumtropic species. South American (French Guiana), Asian (India, Indonesia, Singapore) and several Australian populations were included in our… Expand
Evolutionary systematics of the Australian Cyzicidae (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Spinicaudata) with the description of a new genus
TLDR
A new spinicaudatan genus Ozestheria gen. nov. is described to accommodate the Australian representatives of both studied genera, which constitute a single monophyletic clade separated from all available non-Australian representatives of these genera. Expand
Evolutionary systematics of the Australian Eocyzicus fauna (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: Spinicaudata) reveals hidden diversity and phylogeographic structure
TLDR
There is little to no genetic differentiation between certain populations of the species found in eastern and central Australia (e.g. the Murray–Darling Basin, the Bulloo River catchment and the eastern and northern Lake Eyre Basin; LEB), suggesting high dispersal rates within this large area. Expand
Phylogeny and Biogeography of Spinicaudata (Crustacea: Branchiopoda).
TLDR
The most species-rich phylogenetic analyses of this taxon based on four molecular loci are presented and support previous findings that Cyzicidae sensu lato is paraphyletic and establish a fourth extant spinicaudatan family to accommodate Eocyzicus. Expand
Bosminopsis deitersi (Crustacea: Cladocera) as an ancient species group: a revision
TLDR
The evidence rejects the single species hypothesis for B. deitersi and is consistent with an ancient species group (potentially Mesozoic) that shows marked morphological conservation. Expand
Molecular and morphological delimitation of Australian Triops species (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: Notostraca)—large diversity and little morphological differentiation
TLDR
An integrative approach to taxonomy was employed to delimit putative species, integrating COI and EF1α sequence data and morphological data and found that species delimitation was impeded by extensive overlap between intraspecific variability and interspecific variation in the genetic as well as morphological datasets. Expand
Spinicaudata (Branchiopoda: Diplostraca) in Australia’s arid zone: unparalleled diversity at regional scales and within water bodies
TLDR
The conservative approach suggests 55 species occurring within central and eastern Australia, which raises the number to about 70 species Australia wide: one third of the known global spinicaudatan diversity. Expand
Unraveling the origin of Cladocera by identifying heterochrony in the developmental sequences of Branchiopoda
IntroductionOne of the most interesting riddles within crustaceans is the origin of Cladocera (water fleas). Cladocerans are morphologically diverse and in terms of size and body segmentation differExpand
Phylogeography of Daphnia magna Straus (Crustacea: Cladocera) in Northern Eurasia: Evidence for a deep longitudinal split between mitochondrial lineages
TLDR
This study provides an unprecedented complete picture of the phylogeography of the freshwater cladoceran Daphnia magna Straus, 1820 (Crustacea: Cladocera), based on partial mitochondrial COI sequences and using specimens from populations spread longitudinally from westernmost Europe to easternmost Asia. Expand
The fossil record of the Cladocera (Crustacea: Branchiopoda): Evidence and hypotheses
TLDR
A critical review of the complete fossil record of the Cladocera including the first ever deep-time palaeolimnological framework for the group is presented and shown remarkable plasticity which have been the key to their survival and success in the present day. Expand
The Origin of Cladocera (Crustacea, Branchiopoda): A New Understanding of an Old Hypothesis
TLDR
Comparative analysis of the ontogeny of representatives of two sister taxa showed that the paedomorphic morphology of cladocerans was caused by the cessation of development of the somatic structures at early larval stages ofOntogeny. Expand

Cryptic species within the Chydorus sphaericus species complex (Crustacea: Cladocera) revealed by molecular markers and sexual stage morphology.
TLDR
It is concluded that cryptic regional lineages of benthic cladocerans are apparent and that the sexual stages represent the most informative morphological source of species characters for this environmental indicator group. Expand
The evolutionary history of the Chydoridae (Crustacea: Cladocera)
TLDR
This study examines the phylogenetic history of 37 chydorid species using sequence variation in two mitochondrial genes, COI and 16S r DNA, and one nuclear gene, 18S rDNA to suggest that they originated somewhere in the mid-Palaeozoic. Expand
Phylogeny of Spinicaudata (Branchiopoda, Crustacea) based on three molecular markers--an Australian origin for Limnadopsis.
TLDR
In the genera Eocyzicus and Eulimnadia the Australian species were closely related to those from other continents, suggesting that the origin of Limnadopsis lies in Australia and that Limnadia is not monophyletic. Expand
A new African lineage of the Daphnia obtusa group (Cladocera: Daphniidae) disrupts continental vicariance patterns
TLDR
The results bolster the accumulating evidence for cladoceran regionalism but indicate that strict continental vicariance may not explain the biogeography of the D. obtusa complex. Expand
Molecular evidence suggests an ancient radiation for the fairy shrimp genus Streptocephalus (Branchiopoda: Anostraca)
TLDR
Results indicate that Streptocephalus probably evolved in Gondwana and that the current distribution patterns are a consequence of a combination of vicariance and limited dispersal, implications for the evolution of continental freshwater crustaceans are discussed. Expand
The noncosmopolitanism paradigm of freshwater zooplankton: insights from the global phylogeography of the predatory cladoceran Polyphemus pediculus (Linnaeus, 1761) (Crustacea, Onychopoda)
TLDR
This work explores the global phylogeography of the freshwater cladoceran Polyphemus pediculus using two mitochondrial genes, cytochrome c oxidase subunit I and 16s ribosomal RNA, and one nuclear marker, and reveals an exceptionally pronounced genetic structure at both inter‐ and intra‐continental scales. Expand
Mesozoic fossils (>145 Mya) suggest the antiquity of the subgenera of Daphnia and their coevolution with chaoborid predators
TLDR
The findings indicate that the main subgenera of Daphnia are likely much older than previously known from fossils (at least 100 MY older) or from nuclear DNA estimates of divergence, which suggests that vicariance from the breakup of Pangaea is an unlikely explanation for the origin of the mainSubgenera. Expand
Three new cryptic species of the freshwater zooplankton genus Holopedium (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: Ctenopoda), revealed by genetic methods
TLDR
It is suggested that genetic analyses should be performed on populations from other geographic regions and should always accompany the recognition of new species of Holopedium, by characterizing patterns of allozyme, mtDNA, and morphological variation from a total of 193 sites from three continents. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA variation in North American populations of Daphnia obtusa: continentalism or cryptic endemism?
TLDR
The morphological stasis of many freshwater crustaceans has resulted in the prior delineation of cosmopolitan species and has been explained by their capacity for long‐distance dispersal, but sequence variation of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene indicates that this taxon is composed of two morphologically cryptic species. Expand
Phylogeny of Branchiopoda (Crustacea) based on a combined analysis of morphological data and six molecular loci
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of branchiopod crustaceans have been in the focus of a number of recent morphological and molecular systematic studies, and almost all analyses result in the same topology when only ingroup taxa are considered. Expand
