Recent investigation of one of the larger calcretes in the uppermost reaches of the Carey palaeochannel in the Yilgarn region of Western Australia revealed an unprecedented diversity of copepod crustaceans. Twenty-two different species and subspecies, from six copepod families, represent 70% of the previously recorded copepod α-diversity in the whole region, although the area investigated is less than 3% of its surface. The aims of this study were to explore the diversity of the harpacticoid… Expand
Morphological and molecular study of the genus Nitokra (Crustacea, Copepoda, Harpacticoida) in a small palaeochannel in Western Australia
A combined approach was used to study the diversity, distribution and variability of the ameirid genus Nitokra in the uppermost reaches of the Carey palaeochannel, as very little is known aboutExpand
Morphological and molecular affinities of two East Asian species of Stenhelia (Crustacea, Copepoda, Harpacticoida)
TLDR
Reconstructed phylogenies confirm previously postulated monophyly of Stenhelia and polyphyly of the closely related genus Delavalia Brady, 1869, and average pairwise maximum likelihood distances between S. pubescens and S. taiae are only slightly above 10%, suggesting a very close relationship despite numerous newly discovered micro-morphological differences and despite macro- Morphological similarities being probable plesiomorphies.

The genus Schizopera (Copepoda, Harpacticoida) in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, with description of a new species and its molecular and morphological affinities
TLDR
An overview of the genus in the Pilbara highlights the need for more extensive sampling and for the use of molecular data to resolve issues of disjunct distribution patterns and delineation of morphologically similar species. Expand
Explosive radiation of the genus Schizopera on a small subterranean island in Western Australia (Copepoda : Harpacticoida): unravelling the cases of cryptic speciation, size differentiation and multiple invasions
TLDR
Reconstructed phylogenies reveal that both explosive radiation and multiple colonisations are responsible for this richness, and that Schizopera is probably a recent invasion in these habitats. Expand
First molecular data on the Western Australian Diacyclops (Copepoda, Cyclopoida) confirm morpho-species but question size differentiation and monophyly of the Alticola -group
TLDR
Preliminary analyses suggest absence of in situ speciation and parallel evolution in the Western Australian Diacyclops, interspecific size differentiation being a result of different phylogeny. Expand
A new species of Schizopera (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from Japan, its phylogeny based on the mtCOI gene and comments on the genus Schizoperopsis
The predominantly marine genus Schizopera Sars, 1905 has only two significant inland water species-flocks, one in the ancient African Lake Tanganyika and the other in subterranean waters of WesternExpand
Two new Thermocyclops species (Copepoda, Cyclopoida) from Thailand, with notes on the genus phylogeny inferred from 18S and ITS sequences
TLDR
Both morphological data and reconstructed phylogenies reveal the two new species as only distantly related, which probably facilitates their sympatry. Expand
Two new subterranean ameirids (Crustacea : Copepoda : Harpacticoida) expose weaknesses in the conservation of short-range endemics threatened by mining developments in Western Australia
TLDR
A taxonomic study of non-marine ameirids in Australia highlights limitations in EIA practices and discusses potential improvements which have global relevance in regions where short-range endemics coincide with extraction of mineral resources. Expand
New insights into polyphyly of the harpacticoid genus Delavalia (Crustacea, Copepoda) through morphological and molecular study of an unprecedented diversity of sympatric species in a small South Korean bay.
TLDR
Three new genera, each supported by molecular data and a number of morphological synapomorphies, were erected to accommodate the newly discovered species and some previously described members of Delavalia: Wellstenhelia gen. nov., Itostenheliinae gen.Nov. Expand
Three new ameirid harpacticoids from Korea and first record of Proameira simplex (Crustacea: Copepoda: Ameiridae)*
TLDR
Two new endemic species of Ameira are reported, relatively closely related to the previously recorded cosmopolitan A. parvula in Korea, but show many novel morphological structures in the caudal rami shape and ornamentation, and an alternative hypothesis of a species-complex proposed. Expand

Three new freshwater ameirid species were discovered in the Western Australian subterranean habitats and described, showing the importance of looking at small-scale patterns when inferring Gondwanan biogeography, but the Australian species from the two regions are only remotely related to each other.

On the diagnostic characters of the genus Stygonitocrella (Copepoda, Harpacticoida), with descriptions of seven new species from Australian subterranean waters
TLDR
A revision of the genus Stygonitocrella was made, based on a cladistic approach by using 57 phylogenetically informative morphological characters, revealing the presence of six monophyletic groups, giving ground for the establishment of six new genera, three of them created to accommodate a single new Australian species.

Molecular systematics and patterns of morphological evolution in the Centropagidae (Copepoda: Calanoida) of Argentina
TLDR
The results suggest that structures may be gained readily as well as lost in centropagid copepods, and the common assumption that evolution tends to proceed via the loss of structures in crustaceans is evaluated. Expand

Phylogeography of the ancient Parabathynellidae (Crustacea : Bathynellacea) from the Yilgarn region of Western Australia
TLDR
Analysis of sequence data showed the existence of divergent mtDNA lineages and species restricted in their distribution to a single calcrete, in support of the broader hypothesis that these calcretes are equivalent to closed island habitats comprising endemic taxa. Expand
