To date, only 16 species of the very diverse family Parastenocarididae have been reported from the Indian subcontinent. This paper gives an illustrated description of three new species, viz. Parastenocaris edakkal n. sp., Proserpinicaris corgosinhoi n. sp., and Proserpinicaris karanovici n. sp., and discusses their position in the respective genera. While the first two species were found sympatrically in the Edakkal Cave in Kerala State of southwestern India, the third one was collected from a… 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.

A new genus of Parastenocarididae Chappuis, 1940 (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from the Amazonian Region, Brazil, with close affinity to Murunducaris Reid, 1994
TLDR
The new genus Santaremicaris is closely related to Murunducaris Reid, 1994, with males sharing conspicuous ornamentation on the inner margin of the first swimming leg basis, represented either by an enlarged spinule accompanied by minute accessory spinules or by a row of strong spinules. Expand
First record of the genus Nitocrella Chappuis, 1923 (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Ameiridae) from India, with a new phreatic species
TLDR
The new species is described from phreatic waters in Andhra Pradesh state located in southeastern peninsular India and shows an allegedly close relationship with the Iranian N. petkovskii Pesce, 1980. Expand
A new genus and two new species of Parastenocarididae (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from southeastern India
TLDR
The highly diagnostic synapomorphy of the new genus Indocaris is a composite character associated with the male leg 4 basis: five or six prominent, imbricate, enlarged, petal-like spinules, arranged as a semi-whorl at the insertion of the endopod and increasing in size from internal to external.

Morphological and molecular characterization of three new Parastenocarididae (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from caves in Southern Italy
TLDR
The morphological and molecular data indicate that the genera belonging to the two subfamilies Parastenocaridinee and Fontinalicaridinae form two monophyletic and distinct clades, thus supporting their status. Expand
Groundwater cyclopoid copepods of peninsular India, with description of eight new species.
TLDR
Analysis of numerous groundwater samples collected during 2008-2013 from the hyporheic and phreatic habitats in the coastal deltaic belt of the Rivers Krishna and Godavari in Andhra Pradesh state, southeastern India, has shown ten stygobiotic cyclopoid species, of which eight are new to science. Expand
Atopobathynella paraoperculata n. sp. (Syncarida, Bathynellacea, Parabathynellidae) from the River Krishna, southeastern India
TLDR
The new species is described from the interstitial hyporheic zone of the River Krishna in Andhra Pradesh state and has closest similarity with its Indian congener, Atopobathynella operculata Ranga Reddy, Drewes & Schminke, 2008. Expand
HIMALAYACARIS ALAKNANDA N. GEN., N. SP. (COPEPODA: HARPACTICOIDA: PARASTENOCARIDIDAE) FROM THE HYPOREIC ZONE OF A HIMALAYAN RIVER, NORTHERN INDIA
TLDR
This species is the first hyporheic species from the Ganges River system in the Garhwal Himalayas and the second one from the Himalayan rivers and the phylogenetic position of the new taxon within Parastenocarididae is discussed. Expand
