A new genus Simplicaris (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Parastenocarididae) is established to accommodate two species collected from deep groundwater in Italy, S. lethaea sp. nov. and S. veneris (Cottarelli & Maiolini, 1980) comb. nov.Parastenocaris hippuris Hertzog, 1938 and P. aedes Hertzog, 1938 are ranked as incertae sedis within the genus. Members display complete absence of leg 5 in both sexes and an unusual elongation of the first exopodal segments of legs 1–4, in which exp-1 is distinctly… 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. Expand
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
Establishment of a new genus for Parastenocaris itica (Copepoda, Harpacticoida) from El Salvador, Central America, with discussion of the Parastenocaris fontinalis and P. proserpina groups
TLDR
A new genus of Parastenocarididae is described from the Neotropical region, described from El Salvador, Central America, and represented by Iticocaris itica, the males of which both share the forceps-like elongated apophysis. 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. Expand
Three new species of Remaneicaris Jakobi, 1972 (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Parastenocarididae) from the Ribeirão do Ouro River, Minas Gerais, Brazil, with some remarks on the groundpattern of the Parastenocarididae
Three new species of the parastenocaridid genus Remaneicaris Jakobi, 1972 were discovered in interstitial near-shore waters of the small river Ribeiao do Ouro (a tributary of the Paraopeba river, inExpand

A new species of Parastenocaris from Korea, with a redescription of the closely related P. biwae from Japan (Copepoda: Harpacticoida: Parastenocarididae)
TLDR
It is speculated that the present distribution of the brevipes group may be a combination of ancient vicariance and subsequent dispersal, with a possible origin in the Gondwanaland, in the rift valley between Australia and India. 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
First Record of Parastenocarididae from Thailand and Description of a New Genus (Copepoda: Harpacticoida)
TLDR
The apomorphic characters of Asiacaris are represented by the sexual dimorphism of P2 (stronger in male than in female), the fusion of the P5 to the intercoxal sclerite and to the somite and, mostly, by the overall transformation of P4 in the male, which is the longest and strongest leg. Expand
