Daphnia curvirostris is a typical European species but has also been recorded in Canada and USA. This is a new record for Mexico and the taxon was collected from the Chimaliapan wetlands (State of Mexico, Mexico). Taxonomic descriptions of it are provided using both light and scanning-electron microscopes. When cultured on the green alga Scenedesmus acutus at three food levels (low, 0.5 × 106; medium, 1.0 × 106; high, 2.0 × 106 cells ml−1), D. curvirostris had an average lifespan that ranged… CONTINUE READING
