We describe two new sympatric species of Sarsiellidae from coastal Florida, USA: Eusarsiella bryanjuarezi sp. nov. and Eusarsiella eli sp. nov. We also present a morphological character matrix and maximum likelihood phylogenetic analysis for Sarsiellinae based on original species descriptions, representing 139 sarsiellins (including E. bryanjuarezi and E. eli). While support values across the phylogeny are low, E. bryanjuarezi and E. eli form a sister group pair with 68 % bootstrap support. Our…

Studies on development in Euphilomedes ostracods: Embryology, nervous system development, and the genetics of sexually dimorphic eye development
The main events in Euphilomedes’ embryology are studied, focusing on cleavage and cell migration, and a visual staging scheme for their development is described.


Two new Sarsiellinae (Ostracoda: Myodocopa) from Ningaloo Reef (Western Australia), with a cladistic analysis of the subfamily and keys to genera
The results of two cladistic analyses of the Sarsiellinae subfamily resulted in seven equally parsimonious trees and the second in just one, and the majority rule of the first group of Trees and the tree from the second analysis are presented.
Nealella, a new genus of myodocopid ostracoda (Sarsiellidae: Dantyinae)
Members of the genus have been collected from the continental shelves off Tanzania, Ceylon, Australia, and Indonesia, as well as in Bab el Mandeb—the strait between the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.
Molecular phylogeny of Ostracoda (Crustacea) inferred from 18S ribosomal DNA sequences: implication for its origin and diversification
The tree topology and the crustacean fossil record suggest that the lineage of podocopidans and platycopidans should have separately been established already in the Cambrian, although there is no ostracod fossil record in that time period.
Sarsiellidae of the Western Atlantic and Northern Gulf of Mexico, and Revision of the Sarsiellinae (Ostracoda: Myodocopina)
The distribution of Sarsiellidae on the continental shelves of eastern North America, the northern Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, and Bermuda is discussed and the number of eggs per clutch is shown to be, in part, a function of carapace length.

Benthic Marine Cypridinoidea from Bermuda (Ostracoda)
Four species in four genera of benthic Cypridinoidea are reported from Bermuda, and two new species are described and illustrated, and a supplementary description is given of a previously described species.
Myodocopid Ostracoda of Enewetak and Bikini Atolls
Of the 15 genera collected at Enewetak and Bikini atolls, 7 are world-wide, 6 are known primarily from the Indo-West Pacific Region, and 2 are known only from the atolls.
Dispersal between shallow and abyssal seas and evolutionary loss and regain of compound eyes in cylindroleberidid ostracods: conflicting conclusions from different comparative methods.
It is confirmed that eye presence/absence is correlated with habitat depth and Parameter estimates from a phylogenetic model indicate that speciation is more rapid in deep-sea eyeless clades compared with shallow-water sighted clades, and that tree-based statistical tests usually indicated reversals.
An exceptionally preserved myodocopid ostracod from the Silurian of Herefordshire, UK
Its shell morphology more closely resembles several families of myodocopes other than the Cylindroleberididae, especially the Cypridinidae and Sarsiellidae, thus questioning the utility of the carapace alone in establishing the affinity of fossil ostracods.
