Copepods are top predators here and thus crucially important. This book presents the first data about cyclopoid and poecilostomatoid copepods from the Australian marine interstitial. It includes one new cyclopoid family, the second record of the poecilostomatoid family Polyankyaliidae, one new genus. Abstract. Gurney (), while erecting the genus Kelleria for the accommodation of two newly discovered species of cyclopoid copepods from the Suez Canal, K. regalis Gurney and K. purpurocincta Gurney, also suggested the transfer of two previously described species, Pseudanthessius propinquus T. Scott () and P. pectinatus A. Scott (), into this new by: 2. Kelleria is the only genus known in the family Kelleriidae and was established by Gurney () to accommodate 2 poecilostomatoid copepods from the Suez Canal, K. regalis Gurney and K.   Copepods are top predators here and thus crucially important. This book presents the first data about cyclopoid and poecilostomatoid copepods from the Australian marine interstitial. It includes one new cyclopoid family, the second record of the poecilostomatoid family Polyankyaliidae, one new genus, and 21 new species.

A new, monotypic genus of the interstitial marine cyclopoid copepod family Cyclopinidae G.O. Sars, is described from male and female specimens collected at Laguna de Términos, a large coastal lagoon system in the southern Gulf of opina campechana gen. et sp. n. cannot be adequately placed in any extant genus within the family. It differs from other cyclopinid genera in. Moreover free-living cyclopoid and harpacticoid copepods may form an important component of cryptozoic fauna in moist forest litter (Reid, , ; Fiers & Ghenne, ). Coastal, estuarine brackish waters harbor many copepod genera and species which can persist in these unfavourable habitats mainly as resting, diapausing eggs. Copepoda: Developments in Ecology, Biology and Systematics: This book includes articles presented at the Seventh International Conference on Copepoda, held in Curitiba, Brazil, during July , under the sponsorship of the Federal University of Paraná and the World Association of Copepodologists. During the conference, investigators from 37 countries discussed the current status of. 2 Taxa listed in the EMRB zooplankton database sorted by genus, updating 24 General anatomy of cyclopoid copepods showing key features in males and females Diagrams in text books show “perfect” specimens that rarely exist in nature.

A new Neocyclops Copepoda) from Korea A new marine cyclopoid copepod of the genus Neocyclops (Cyclopidae, Halicyclopinae) from Korea Jimin Lee1, Cheon Young Chang2 1 Biological Oceanography & Marine Biology Division, Korea Institute of Ocean Science & Technology, Ansan, Korea 2 Department of Biological Science, College of Natural Sciences, Daegu University, Gyeongsan, Korea.   Although copepods of the genus Cyclops are among the most common and dominant plankton taxa of lakes in the northern temperate zone, their taxonomy is still unclear. We analysed an extensive array of Cyclops populations from Europe by means of molecular methods and evaluated morphological characters. Altogether, 68 populations of Cyclops species were sampled, assigned to . A new cyclopoid species of the genus Neocyclops Gurney, is described. Type specimens were collected from a beach on south-western coast of the Korean Peninsula by rinsing intertidal coarse sandy sediments. Neocyclops hoonsooi sp. n. is most characteristic in showing the conspicuous chitinized transverse ridges originating from the medial margins of the coxae of all swimming legs.
