Parastenocaris brevipes Kessler is redescribed and its presence in North America is established through comparison of specimens from the U.S.A., Finland, and Germany. Parastenocaris wilsoni Borutskii, Parastenocaris starretti Pennak, Parastenocaris biwae Miura, and Parastenocaris sp. 2 Strayer (Strayer, D.L. 1988. Stygologia, 4: 279 -29 1 .) are assigned to the synonymy of P. brevipes. Biwaecaris Jakobi is a synonym of Parastenocaris Kessler. Some North American records of P. brevipes or P… Expand

Redefinition of the parastenocaridid genus Proserpinicaris (Copepoda: Harpacticoida), with description of three new species from Korea
TLDR
The genus Proserpinicaris Jakobi, 1972, as redefined here, is Palaearctic in distribution, with the centre of diversity in southern Europe, and 20 valid members, all of which share a large hyaline spiniform structure on the male fourth leg basis as a synapomorphy. Expand
Errata for: “Two new parastenocaridid genera (Copepoda, Harpacticoida) from South America, including a revision of Noodt’s columbiensis-group and the redescription of Parastenocaris tapajosensis Noodt, 1963”
TLDR
The genus Colombocaris is proposed for a new species discovered on submerged mosses of a high Andean lake in Colombia, and the new genus Noodtcaris is suggested for three species of the Parastenocaris columbiensis -group, well defined by the ornamentation of the caudal rami and the morphology of legs 2 to 5.

TLDR
This is the first time a non-Remaneicaris Parastenocaridinae is described from a Neotropical region indicating that Parastinocarids species were already present in a vast geographical area, before the split of the Gondwana. Expand

PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HARPACTICOID COPEPODA FAUNA OF CHINA AND DESCRIPTION OF SOME NEW SPECIES
TLDR
An attempt is made to make an analysis of the characteristics of the Chinese freshwater harpacticoid Copepoda fauna, and to give diagnoses of the new species on the other, which are doubtlessly most closely related to that of the other Asiatic regions, but very different from that of Europe and Africa.

Distribution and dispersal of Parastenocarididae (Copepoda) in northern Europe
TLDR
Five species of the mainly subterranean genus Parastenocaris Kessler (Copepoda) are found in northern Europe and it is suggested that the species is strongly expansive and its endurance to low temperatures may have facilitated an immigration close to the retreating ice. Expand

TLDR
This method allows to distinguish three natural principles that govern the evolution within this family: a tendency toward reduction and elimination on the 4th endopod; a differentiation developing the haptic potential; and maintenance of relatively original and primitive types in the orbits 4 to 6.
