A review of the genus Cavernocypris Hartmann (Ostracoda, Cypridopsinae): Systematics, ecology and biogeography
Download Full Text
The genus Cavernocypris Hartmann, 1964 is revised. Cavernocypris lindbergi Hartmann, 1964 is shown to be synonymous with Cavernocypris subterranea (Wolf), which is the type-species of the genus. Cypridopsis shadini Akatova, 1950 and Cypridopsis coreana McKenzie, 1972 are transferred into the genus Cavernocypris (these are two new combinations). Cavernocypris shadini nov. comb. is shown to be synonymous with Cavernocypris subterranea. A new species Cavernocypris wardi n. sp. from Colorado, USA, is described. The descriptions of C. subterranea and C. coreana are completed. The genus Cavernocypris at present includes three species: Cavernocypris subterranea (Wolf, 1920), Cavernocypris coreana (McKenzie, 1972) nov. comb. and C. wardi n.sp. The phylogenetic relationships between the three species are discussed. C. coreana seems to be the most primitive.
