Two new Sarsiellinae (Ostracoda: Myodocopa) from Ningaloo Reef (Western Australia), with a cladistic analysis of the subfamily and keys to genera
The results of two cladistic analyses of the Sarsiellinae subfamily resulted in seven equally parsimonious trees and the second in just one, and the majority rule of the first group of Trees and the tree from the second analysis are presented.
Two new sympatric species of Eusarsiella (Ostracoda: Myodocopida: Sarsiellidae) from the Florida Keys with a morphological phylogeny of Sarsiellinae.
The finding of multiple polyphyletic genera, including the two most speciose genera in the subfamily Sarsiellinae is a strong candidate for taxonomic revision.
Spinacopia dietkeyseri, a new species of Marine Ostracoda (Sarsiellidae: Myodocopina) from the Southern ocean.
- Biology, GeologyZootaxa
A new species of the family Sarsiellidae is described from the Southern Ocean, very close to S. mastix Kornicker, 1975, but differs in the ornamentation on the surface of the carapace and in the number of setae on the maxilla, 5th, 6th and 7th limbs.
A new Euphilomedes Kornicker, 1967 (Myodocopida: Philomedidae) from Tasmania with a key to the species of the genus
- BiologyMarine Biodiversity
Euphilomedes tasmanicus n. sp. is described in this paper. The species was collected from the estuary of the Huon River in Tasmania, Australia. It is most closely related to another Australian…

Two new benthic Euphilomedes Kornicker, 1967 (Ostracoda, Myodocopida, Philomedidae) from the Taiwan Strait (East China Sea)
Two new species of benthic ostracods in this genus are described, Euphilomedes liuruiyii sp.
Two new sympatric species of Eusarsiella (Ostracoda: Myodocopida: Sarsiellidae) from the Florida Keys with a morphological phylogeny of Sarsiellinae
The Sarsiellinae phylogeny recovered only three monophyletic genera: Anscottiella, Cymbicopia, and Chelicopia, indicating that characters used in taxonomy may often be homoplasious.
Ostracoda (Myodocopina) of the Hawaiian Islands
- Environmental Science
A new species, Pterocypridina colesi Kornicker & Harrison-Nelson, that was present on all the Islands is described and illustrated, including all five instars and the adult male and female.
Euphilomedes chupacabra (Ostracoda: Myodocopida: Philomedidae), a new demersal marine species from coastal Puerto Rico with male-biased vespertine swimming activity
It is hypothesize that vespertine planktonic mating is an adaptive behavior that exists in many myodocopids and is either the ancestral state for the group or partially or fully convergent in multiple species.
