Subterranean copepods have been studied from 160 samples (from around 150 different localities) in the Pilbara region, collected by the Department of Conservation and Land Management, Western Australian Museum, mining companies and environmental consultants between 1997 and 2003. A rich and interesting copepod fauna was found in this arid area, comprising 41 species and subspecies classified into 24 genera, seven families and two orders (Cyclopoida and Harpacticoida). The following five genera… Expand
Freshwater cyclopoids and harpacticoids (Crustacea: Copepoda) from the Gnangara Mound region of Western Australia
TLDR
The copepod fauna recorded in the caves and springs of the Gnangara Mound region are comparable, with respect to species richness, endemicity and the varying degrees of dependency on ground water, to those reported from similar habitats in South Australia and Western Australia. Expand
First record of the harpacticoid genus Nitocrellopsis (Copepoda, Ameiridae) in Australia, with descriptions of three new species
TLDR
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. 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 Bathynellidae (Crustacea) taxa and their relationships in the Fortescue catchment aquifers of the Pilbara region, Western Australia
TLDR
The phylogenetic reconstruction of the relationships among known lineages of the Bathynellids family in the Pilbara highlights a pattern of distribution characterized by a complex evolutionary history that does not reflect contemporary surface water catchments, suggesting a diversification that preceded the aridification processes started in the north of Western Australia during the Miocene. Expand
A new genus of Ectinosomatidae (Copepoda, Harpacticoida) from sublittoral sediments in Ubatuba, São Paulo State, Brazil, including an updated key to genera and notes on Noodtiella Wells, 1965
TLDR
Both sexes of a new genus and species of Ectinosomatidae from sublittoral sediments collected on the inner continental shelf in Ubatuba, São Paulo State (Brazil) are described in detail. Expand
A new cyclopoid copepod from Korean subterranean waters reveals an interesting connection with the Central Asian fauna (Crustacea: Copepoda: Cyclopoida)
TLDR
Range fragmentation is a more plausible explanation for this distribution pattern than range expansion, and four lines of evidence are emphasized that support this hypothesis. Expand
A new species of Halicyclops (Copepoda, Cyclopoida, Halicyclopinae) from an estuarine system of the Caribbean Coast of Colombia
TLDR
The new species described herein is assignable to the group of species “F” of Halicyclops ( sensu Pesce, 2018) with a 2333 exopodal spine formula and can be distinguished from its known congeners by the absence of an anal operculum. Expand
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. Expand
First Record of the Harpacticoid Genus Morariopsis (Crustacea: Copepoda: Canthocamptidae) in Japan, and its Zoogeographic Implications
TLDR
It is suggested that ancient lakes also act as biodiversity pumps for subterranean habitats, and that the ancestor of this species first colonised benthic habitats of ancient Lake Biwa, during its tectonic formation, and from there colonised subterranean waters in its surroundings during the major climatic changes of the Quaternary. Expand
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

New hypogean cyclopoid copepods (Crustacea) from the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico

This paper describes a new species of the harpacticoid copepod genus Parastenocaris from submerged sands of Mill Creek, Newton County, Texas, which is the first Nearctic member of this genus described from stream sands, and its occurrence greatly extends the southern range for North American Parastinocaris.
