Ecology and classification of Bahamian Cytherellidae (Ostracoda)

  title={Ecology and classification of Bahamian Cytherellidae (Ostracoda)},
  author={Louis S. Kornicker},
Four species {three new) of Ostracoda belonging to the family Cytherellidae, collected in the vicinity of Bimini, Bahamas, are described. The influence of water depth, salinity, substrate, and temperature on the distribution of cytherellids is discussed. It is tentatively concluded that cytherellids are restricted to water having salinities above 25 parts per thousand and depths less than 2000 meters.

Appendage Homologies and the First Record of Eyes in Platycopid Ostracods, with the Description of a New Species of Keijcyoidea (Crustacea: Ostracoda) from Japan
A median nauplius eye is reported for the first time in a platycopid ostracod, a group hitherto considered to be blind, and the homologies and phylogenetic implications of the trunk segmentation and limbs are discussed.


An ecological study of seasonal distribution of Ostracoda, Solomons Island, Maryland, region
The seasonal distribution of the species was compared with hydrographical records furnished for the same period by the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory to determine the correlation between ecological factors and seasonal fluctuations in numbers and species of Ostracoda.
