At present, the American genus Thamnocephalus has three species, recorded from several states of U.S.A., México and Venezuela: Thamnocephalus platyurus Packard, T. mexicanus Linder and T. venezuelensis Belk & Pereira. The new species Thamnocephalus salinarum, from a turbid saline temporary pond inside the Salinas Grandes of Córdoba, Argentina is described here. The new species differs from all other congeners by the presence in the male, of an unbranched frontal appendage and a pair of soft… 
A new genus and species of thamnocephalid fairy shrimp (Branchiopoda: Anostraca) from Argentina (Chubut Province)
Aeginecta longicauda n. gen., n. sp. is described from material collected from a seasonally astatic aquatic habitat in Argentina. It is only known from the type locality and two male specimens; at
A Systematic Review of Mexican Populations of the Fairy Shrimp Genus Thamnocephalus (Branchiopoda: Anostraca)
Molecular and morphological data confirm that T. mexicanus and T. platyurus represent two biological lineages at the species level, and an update of their geographical distribution is presented.
Comments and records on the large branchiopod Crustacea (Anostraca, Notostraca, Laevicaudata, Spinicaudata, Cyclestherida) of the Neotropical and Antarctic bioregions
The large branchiopod crustacean fauna of the Neotropical Bioregion are incompletely known, with scattered records for many taxa, and many new taxa discovered and described regularly.
A Redescription of Branchinecta pollicifera Harding, 1940, and Its Placement In A New Genus (Branchiopoda: Anostraca: Branchinectidae)
Specific unique gonopod and genital segment features demonstrate that B. pollicifera constitutes a new genus, Archaebranchinecta, morphologically distinct from BranchinECTa sensu stricto.
Cicindis horni Bruch (Coleoptera: Carabidae, Cicindini): The Fairy Shrimp Hunting Beetle, its way of life on the Salinas Grandes of Argentina
Populations of C. horni Bruch are probably limited by the extent of the great salt flats of Argentina and are further limited edaphically within the overall geographic range.
Fairy Shrimp (Branchiopoda: Anostraca) of Chile
5 new localities and range extensions for 5 species of Branchinecta are found and a new species from the Atacama Desert is described, Branch inecta papillata n.
A checklist of the Anostraca (fairy shrimp) is presented with synonyms, and the presentation of the suborders and families follows recent molecular phylogenetic analyses presented elsewhere.
Reproductive Cycle and Genitalia of the Fairy Shrimp Branchinella thailandensis (Branchiopoda: Anostraca)
Branchinella thailandensis produces typical freshwater anostracan sculptured eggs, and belongs to the fairy shrimp group without a sub-cortical space beneath the egg shell, and is of interest in aquaculture because it reproduces rapidly and has high nutritional value.
A Conceptual Model for Anostracan Biogeography

The conceptual model presented provides a simple framework for future research in anostracan biogeography and drives speciation and reverses competitive dominance patterns, leading to selection mediated priority events.


Distribution of species of Anostraca, Notostraca, Spinicaudata, and Laevicaudata in Mexico
The number of phyllopod species known to occur in Mexico is 27; the species known only from Mexico are Streptocephalus kargesi, S. moorei, Paralimnetis mapimi, two undescribed species of Branchinecta, and an undescribes species of StreptOcephalus.
The anostracan genus Branchinella (Crustacea: Branchiopoda), in need of a taxonomic revision; evidence from penile morphology
Large intra-branchinellid variability and vague generic boundaries, even when considering the usually conservative penile structures, stress the need of a thorough revision of the entire family of the Thamnocephalidae.
Checklist of the Anostraca
This checklist lists the named anostracan fauna of the world at 258 species and seven subspecies oraganized in 21 genera, with the most species rich genus being Streptocephalus with 58 described species level taxa.
Thamnocephalus venezuelensis, new species, is described from specimens collected from an ephemeral pond located in Zulia, Venezuela and an additional collection is reported from Falcon, Venezuela, which represent the first known occurrence of Tham nocephalus in South America.
Revison of Australian species of Branchinella (Crustacea : Anostraca)
The preyiously known number of Australian species of Branchinella is reduced from 19 to 16 by synonymy: material belonging to 15 of these species is studied and taxonomic notes and drawings are provided.
