The parthenogenetic female of a new anomopod crustacean, Notothrix halsei gen. n. et sp. n., is described from Lake Angove and found in five other sites in SW Australia. Although macrotrichid‐like at first glance, a detailed morphological study including thoracic appendages revealed a set of primitive characters and similarities with primitive families, in particular with the Eurycercidae and Acantholeberidae. Ancestral traits of Notothrix gen. n. comprise: (i) a single large head pore; (ii… 

Extremalona timmsi gen. nov., sp. nov., a new cladoceran (Cladocera: Anomopoda: Chydoridae) from an acid saline lake in southwest Western Australia

The data confirm a high level of endemism in Australian Chydoridae and Cladocera in general and one of the ancestral genera of the Coronatella-branch of Aloninae, sharing numerous common features with the elegans-group of Alona s.l.

A revision of the extinct Mesozoic family Prochydoridae Smirnov, 1992 (Crustacea: Cladocera) with a discussion of its phylogenetic position

Evidence is presented that the Prochydoridae form a specific lineage of cladocerans either separate from or basal to the order Anomopoda Sars, 1865, Nevertheless, a definitive conclusion of phylogenetic position awaits description of the prochydOrid thoracic limbs, which are currently unknown.

The Morphological Radiation of Setae in the Cladocera (Crustacea) and Their Potential for Morphogenesis

It is assumed that, having been originated, if not eliminated, these modifications either find some adaptive use in the process of radiation at the next level – adaptive radiation – or restrict the niches of specialized groups, or just remain ecologically neutral and then give rise to a series of similar species.

Phylogenetic insights into the Anomopoda, mainly derived from a comparative study of trunk limb 1

The P1 in a clade formed by the radopods and daphniid-like families of the anomopods nicely reflects the evolution that has occurred in the order. The Gondwanotrichidae are the only family that has a

Diversity and distribution of the Macrothrix paulensis species group (Crustacea: Cladocera: Macrothricidae) in the tropics: what can we learn from the morphological data?

All possible scenarios are old, which confirms antiquity of the M. paulensis group, and a new species, M. australiensis sp.

Tropical Amphi-Pacific disjunctions in the Cladocera (Crustacea: Branchiopoda)

It is proposed that a comparison with biogeographical hypotheses of plants, may provide useful analogies when studying anomopod biogeography, because ephippia, the propagules for dispersal, functionally act as minute aquatic plant seeds.

Corrigendum

  • Biology
  • 2007
A new replacement name is proposed for the type genus of the Nototrichidae, a new monotypic family of Anomopoda from SW Australia, which is a junior homonym of the turbellarian genus Notothrix Hickman, 1955.

Corrections and additions to the Dumontiidae Santos-Flores & Dodson, 2003 (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: Anomopoda), and implications for anomopod phylogeny

The presumed sixth limb of Dumontia Santos-Flores & Dodson, 2003 is shown to correspond to the inner part of the fifth limb. Comparison of the latter structure within the order increases the

Dumontia oregonensis n. fam., n. gen., n. sp., a cladoceran representing a new family of ‘Water-fleas’ (Crustacea, Anomopoda) from U.S.A., with notes on the classification of the Order Anomopoda

A detailed examination of the trunk limbs showed that the new species lacks the scraper-setae typically observed in all members of the recently erected suborder Radopoda, to which macrothricids belong, and limb morphology suggests a closer relation of Dumontiidae to the family Daphniidae.

A reclassification of the anomopod families Macrothricidae and Chydoridae, with the creation of a new suborder, the Radopoda (Crustacea: Branchiopoda)

A cascade of trunk-limb based characters are derived to derive a hypothesis on the evolution of the Radopoda, and a number of unifying characters are named for all macrothricid and chydorid-like anomopods, which are united in the new suborderRadopoda.

The species of Pleuroxus and of three related genera (Anomopoda, Chydoridae) in southern Australia and New Zealand

Marked differences between the Pleuroxus fauna of eastern and western Australia provide evidence for adaptive radiation, and it is likely that a comparable high degree of endemicity will be found in other chydorid groups.

The evolutionary history of the Chydoridae (Crustacea: Cladocera)

This study examines the phylogenetic history of 37 chydorid species using sequence variation in two mitochondrial genes, COI and 16S r DNA, and one nuclear gene, 18S rDNA to suggest that they originated somewhere in the mid-Palaeozoic.

Phylogeny, evolution and classification of the Branchiopoda (Crustacea)

A cladistic analysis of all branchiopod groups, using a total of 42 morphological characters, shows that the circumtropical Cyclesteria hislopi is the sole representative of a new conchostracan order, the Cyclestherida.

Phylogenetic relationships among families of the order Anomopoda (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Cladocera)

The phylogenetic relationships among families of the Order Anomopoda were investigated through a cladistic analysis including 93 characters and 37 terminal taxa and indicated the existence of two main clades: (Moinidae+Daphniidae) and (Dumontidae+Bosminidae+Radopoda).
