Molecular evidence suggests an ancient radiation for the fairy shrimp genus Streptocephalus (Branchiopoda: Anostraca)
TLDR
Results indicate that Streptocephalus probably evolved in Gondwana and that the current distribution patterns are a consequence of a combination of vicariance and limited dispersal, implications for the evolution of continental freshwater crustaceans are discussed.
Molecular Evaluation of the Fairy Shrimp Family Branchinectidae (Crustacea: Anostraca) Supports Peripatric Speciation and Complex Divergence Patterns.
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny for select members of the Branchinectidae is presented to better understand the distribution of morphological variation among species, and biogeographic models of speciation for the group are tested.
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.
Chirocephalus sarpedonis sp. nov. (Branchiopoda, Anostraca, Chirocephalidae) from Turkey questions the monophyly of the traditional Chirocephalus species-groups
TLDR
Morphological and molecular analyses fail to confirm the monophyly of the bairdi-group and exclude C. sarpedonis sp.
Large-scale mitochondrial phylogeography in the halophilic fairy shrimp Phallocryptus spinosa (Milne-Edwards, 1840) (Branchiopoda: Anostraca)
Abstract.In this study we analyzed patterns of sequence divergence in about 1kb of mitochondrial DNA coding for two genes (16S rRNA and Cytochrome Oxidase I, COI) in 15 populations and 61 individuals
Branchinecta brushi n. sp. (Branchiopoda: Anostraca: Branchinectidae) from a Volcanic Crater in Northern Chile (Antofagasta Province): A New Altitude Record for Crustaceans
TLDR
B. brushi is a new species of fairy shrimp described from a pool within the volcanic crater of Cerro Paniri, northern Chile that represents a new altitude record for anostracans and shares the title for highest altitude occurrence across all of Crustacea with a cladoceran from the same pool.
Three new species of the fairy shrimp Eubranchipus Verill, 1870 (Branchiopoda: Anostraca) from northern Japan and far Eastern Russia
BackgroundSmall crustaceans in the order Anostraca that lack a carapace are commonly referred to as fairy shrimps. Eubranchipus is an Anostracan genus distributed across the Holarctic region. E.
Notothrix halsei gen. n., sp. n., representative of a new family of freshwater cladocerans (Branchiopoda, Anomopoda) from SW Australia, with a discussion of ancestral traits and a preliminary molecular phylogeny of the order
TLDR
Analysis of the complete 18S (SSU) rRNA gene sequence including taxa from all but four anomopod families and using Ctenopoda as an outgroup, confirms the separation of the new taxon, the Nototrichidae fam.

Affinities among anostracan (Crustacea: Branchiopoda) families inferred from phylogenetic analyses of multiple gene sequences.
TLDR
To gain insights into the relationships among anostracan families, molecular phylogenetic analyses were performed on nuclear and mitochondrial gene regions for representatives of seven families and an outgroup, demonstrating that morphology-based hypotheses of relationships among families had poorer support than those determined from molecular data.
BRANCHIOPOD MONOPHYLY AND INTERORDINAL PHYLOGENY INFERRED FROM 18S RIBOSOMAL DNA
TLDR
It is proposed that the taxonomic heading “Cladocera” include a new taxon, Cyclesthera, equal in rank to the Gymnomera, which corroborates views based on morphological comparisons that the cladoceran lineage arose from a cyclestherid-like ancestor.
Phylogenetic Study of Cirripedes and Selected Relatives (Thecostraca) Based on 18s Rdna Sequence Analysis
TLDR
It is concluded that the Thecostraca, represented here by the subclasses Ascothoracida and Cirripedia (the latter including the Acrothoracica, Rhizocephala, and Thoracica), is a monophyletic taxon.
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF CRUSTACEANS WITH FOLIACEOUS LIMBS: AN 18S rDNA STUDY OF BRANCHIOPODA, CEPHALOCARIDA, AND PHYLLOCARIDA
TLDR
Results strongly support three clades among the crustacean ingroup: a branchiopod clade, a (cephalocarid + copepod)Clade, and a malacostracan clade that includes the phyllocarids leptostracans Nebalia sp.
A phylogenetic analysis of the Conchostraca and Cladocera (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Diplostraca)
TLDR
A computer-assisted cladistic analysis on morphological characters of the Diplostraca (ConchostracA and Cladocera) has been undertaken for the first time and a suggested classificatory hierarchy is presented.
Phylogeny of the tree swallow genus, Tachycineta (Aves: Hirundinidae), by Bayesian analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequences.
TLDR
The phylogeny of the nine Tachycineta species was reconstructed by comparing DNA sequences of six mitochondrial genes and one interesting biogeographic discovery was the close relationship between Caribbean and western North American taxa.
The origin and evolution of variable-region helices in V4 and V7 of the small-subunit ribosomal RNA of branchiopod crustaceans.
TLDR
Evidence supports the classical view that Cladocera is a monophyletic group and that the cyclestheriids are transitional between spinicaudatans and cladocerans and indicates that mechanisms affecting length variation do so both across single genes and across genes in the rRNA gene family.
Phylogeny, evolution and classification of the Branchiopoda (Crustacea)
TLDR
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.
Crustacean phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA
Resolution concerning issues of higher-order crustacean phylogeny remains elusive even after years of thorough morphological and palaeontological scrutiny. Surprisingly, there is as yet no consensus
Sequence variations in small-subunit ribosomal RNAs of Hartmannella vermiformis and their phylogenetic implications.
TLDR
Parsimony, distance, and bootstrap analyses used to examine phylogenetic relationships between the srDNA sequences of H. vermiformis and other eukaryotes indicated that Hartmannella sequences were most closely related to those of Acanthamoeba and the alga Cryptomonas.
