Global diversity of mysids (Crustacea-Mysida) in freshwater

  title={Global diversity of mysids (Crustacea-Mysida) in freshwater},
  author={Megan L. Porter and Kenneth Meland and Wayne A. Price},
In this article we present a biogeographical assessment of species diversity within the Mysida (Crustacea: Malacostraca: Peracarida) from inland waters. Inland species represent 6.7% (72 species) of mysid diversity. These species represent three of the four families within the Mysida (Lepidomysidae, Stygiomysidae, and Mysidae) and are concentrated in the Palaearctic and Neotropical regions. The inland mysid species distributional patterns can be explained by four main groups representing… CONTINUE READING
