A new species of small cyclopoids from subterranean waters of India is described in a newly established subgenus, Kiefercyclops n.sg., of the genus Haplocyclops Kiefer, 1952. Genital double-somite with ovipores situated in the posterior half, antennula without the lateral seta on the ultimate segment, and caudal rami with the lateral seta inserted in the proximal half are among the most important characters of H. (K.) fiersi n.sp., that warrant its position in the genus Haplocyclops. Also, the… Expand

A new genus and two new species of Parastenocarididae (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from southeastern India
TLDR
The highly diagnostic synapomorphy of the new genus Indocaris is a composite character associated with the male leg 4 basis: five or six prominent, imbricate, enlarged, petal-like spinules, arranged as a semi-whorl at the insertion of the endopod and increasing in size from internal to external. Expand
A new species of Parastenocaris from Korea, with a redescription of the closely related P. biwae from Japan (Copepoda: Harpacticoida: Parastenocarididae)
TLDR
It is speculated that the present distribution of the brevipes group may be a combination of ancient vicariance and subsequent dispersal, with a possible origin in the Gondwanaland, in the rift valley between Australia and India. Expand
A Cladistic Analysis and Taxonomic Revision of Australian Metacyclops and Goniocyclops , with Description of Four New Species and Three New Genera (Copepoda, Cyclopoida)
TLDR
Four new small subterranean cyclopid species are described from Australia in a newly erected genus Anzcyclops, which has a number of unique features, including dorsoventrally compressed habitus, reticulated integument of prosomites, and a characterstic shape of the fifth leg. Expand
Second representative of the order Misophrioida (Crustacea, Copepoda) from Australia challenges the hypothesis of the Tethyan origin of some anchialine faunas
TLDR
A new species of the genus Speleophria is described from a cave in the Nullarbor region in southern Western Australia, considered to be Tethyan relicts, which suggests the possible existence of anchialine habitats in southern Australia. Expand

Groundwater cyclopoid copepods of peninsular India, with description of eight new species.
TLDR
Analysis of numerous groundwater samples collected during 2008-2013 from the hyporheic and phreatic habitats in the coastal deltaic belt of the Rivers Krishna and Godavari in Andhra Pradesh state, southeastern India, has shown ten stygobiotic cyclopoid species, of which eight are new to science. Expand
On the little-known hyporheic biodiversity of India, with annotated checklist of copepods and bathynellaceans (Crustacea) and a note on the disastrous implications of indiscriminate sand mining
TLDR
Analysis of about 2500 samples collected from the alluvial sediments of certain rivers and streams, mainly in the coastal deltaic belt of the rivers Krishna and Godavari in Andhra Pradesh State during 2000-2012 yielded 41 copepod and bathynellacean species, of which 31 new species are formally described during the ongoing studies whereas the remainder are previously known ones. Expand
An updated checklist of groundwater crustaceans of India
Only eight groundwater crustacean species were known in India till the end of 20 th century. Analysis of about 4000 samples collected during 2000-2016 from diverse groundwater habitats, especially inExpand

A NEW GENUS AND SPECIES OF THE FAMILY DIOSACCIDAE (COPEPODA: HARPACTICOIDA) FROM THE GROUNDWATERS OF INDIA
TLDR
A peculiar shape of the genital field in the female and the armature of the antennal exopod in both sexes are the most important autapomorphies of the new genus Neomiscegenus, while the fine structure of the sexually dimorphic second leg in the male is probably plesiomorphic. Expand

This is the first report of consistent sexual dimorphism in swimming leg articulation in Diacyclops and it is suggested that preferential reduction in endopodites of posterior legs of smaller cyclopines allows the female genital double somite to remain relatively large. Expand
