Two new species of the genus Parastenocaris Kessler, 1913 are described from Australian subterranean waters, both based upon males and females. Parastenocaris eberhardi sp. novo has been found in two small caves in southwestern Western Australia. It belongs to the "minuta"-group of species, having five large spinules at base of the fourth leg endopod in male. The integumental window pattern of P. eberhardi is the same as for the first reported Australian representative (P. solitaria), which… Expand
Three new species of Parastenocarididae (Crustacea, Copepoda, Harpacticoida) from India.

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
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

Second representative of the order Misophrioida (Crustacea, Copepoda) from Australia challenges the hypothesis of the Tethyan origin of some anchialine faunas
TLDR
A new species of the genus Speleophria is described from a cave in the Nullarbor region in southern Western Australia, considered to be Tethyan relicts, which suggests the possible existence of anchialine habitats in southern Australia. Expand
Fourteen New Dytiscidae (Coleoptera) of the Genera Limbodessus Guignot, Paroster Sharp, and Exocelina Broun from Underground Waters in Australia
TLDR
Fourteen new species of stygobitic Dytiscidae from inland Western Australia and Central Australia are described, including one of the new species, Limbodessus insolitus, which has single-lobed parameres, the first undoubted member of the tribe Bidessini not to have bilobedParameres. Expand
A new species of the copepod genus Australoeucyclops (Crustacea: Cyclopoida: Eucyclopinae) from Western Australia shows the role of aridity in habitat shift and colonisation of ground water
TLDR
A new species of the cyclopoid genus Australoeucyclops Karanovic, 2006 is described from several disjunct locations in south-western Western Australia, which differs from all its congeners by its subequal apical spines on the fourth leg endopod. 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.

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.
