Troglocyclops janstocki is proposed to accommodate cyclopids from Hatchet Bay Cave, Eleuthera Island, Bahamas. The species is the most primitive member of the Halicyclopinae because of the presence of 15-segmented antennules, mandibular palp reduced to 3 setae, one of them quite long and plumose, a bisegmented maxillary endopodite, and 3 segments in the maxilliped endopodite. These copepods possess the first pediger still distinct, being partially enclosed dorsally and laterally by a carapace… Expand

A new species of smirnovipinid copepod (Copepoda: Cyclopoida: Smirnovipinidae) from an anchialine cave in Italian coastal waters, with a replacement name for the genus Ginesia Jaume and Boxshall, 1997
Abstract A new smirnovipinid copepod has been found in a shallow coastal cave located between the villages of Bagnara and Palmi on the Calabria coast. The new species belongs to genus Ginesia JaumeExpand
COPEPODID STAGES OF EURYTE LONGICAUDA (CYCLOPOIDA, CYCLOPIDAE, EURYTEINAE) FROM THE WHITE SEA ASSOCIATED WITH THE BRYOZOAN FLUSTRA FOLIACEA
TLDR
Development of the maxilliped suggests that E. longicaudata shares with Troglocyclops janstocki Rocha and Iliffe, 1994, and Neocy Clops vicinus more states expressed during endopodal development of primitive cyclopoids, while endopODAL development of themaxilliped of the remaining Cyclopidae is truncated.

On the phylogeny of Euryteinae (Crustacea, Copepoda, Cyclopoida), with description of one new species from Korea
TLDR
To test the phylogenetic relationships of its members and previous hypotheses about generic placement of two species associated with scleractinian corals, several cladistic analyses are performed, suggesting a close relationship between the two commensal species and them as a sister clade to all other Euryteinae.

A new genus for Cirolana troglexuma Botosaneanu & Iliffe, 1997, an anchialine cave dwelling cirolanid isopod (Crustacea, Isopoda, Cirolanidae) from the Bahamas
TLDR
Mitochondrial COI and 16S loci and the nuclear 18S locus data show that all specimens are the one species and diagnostic identifying characters and purported apomorphies for Lucayalana gen. n. Expand
A NEW SPECIES OF EUPOLYMNIPHILUS (COPEPODA: CYCLOPOIDA: SABELLIPHILIDAE) FROM AN ANCHIALINE CAVE OF THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA WITH A KEY TO THE SEVEN SPECIES OF THE GENUS
TLDR
A new species belonging to the genus Eupolymniphilus (Sabelliphilidae) is described from an anchialine cave located on the southern coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea (Central Mediterranean) and is most closely related to E. mediterraneus sp. Expand
Molecular evidence for the retention of the Thaumatopsyllidae in the order Cyclopoida (Copepoda) and establishment of four suborders and two families within the Cyclopoida.
TLDR
The phylogenetic position of the Thaumatopsyllidae was examined for the first time using gene sequences of 28S and 18S rRNA, as well as COI mtDNA, obtained from two thaumat autopsyllid species occurring off the coast of southern California and the results support the gradual invasion of fresh water by the four families in this cluster.

Towards a phylogeny of Cyclops (Copepoda): (in)congruences among morphology, molecules and zoogeography
TLDR
The phylogeny of Cyclops (~30 spp.), a predominantly Palearctic cold‐adapted genus, was reconstructed based on morphological and molecular characters, suggesting two independent invasions into North America via the Bering Land Bridge from Siberia to Alaska. Expand

Speleoithonidae, a new family of Copepoda (Cyclopoida) from anchialine caves on the Bahama Islands
TLDR
Speleoithona is distinguished from other cyclopoids by the structure of the P5, rostrum and mandibular palp, number of segments and armature of the A1, presence of a row of pinnules on the caudal face of the Exp3 P2-P4, and absence of the inner apical seta on the Caudal rami. Expand
A new family of cyclopoid copepods (Ozmanidae) parasitic in the hemocoel of a snail from the Brazilian Amazon
TLDR
The body form, oral appendages, and thoracic appendages of this new copepod are highly modified making the recognition of its ordinal affinities difficult, however, the possession of a geniculate first antenna in the male seems to suggest that it is a member of Cyclopoida. Expand

TLDR
In wells of the islands of Barbados and Aruba (West Indies) two new species of Metacyclops were found, one of which may have evolved from mendocinus-like ancestors, but differs obviously in comparison with the morphologically similar species M. aequatorialis Dussart, 1977 and M. chelazzi Dumont, 1981.
