A new genus and two new species of chydoridae (Branchiopoda : Anomopoda), from Korup National Park, Cameroon

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 129(2):327-337.

Among the small crustaceans occurring in temporary waterbodies in the primary rain forest of Korup National Park in Cameroon, two new chydorid <<cladoceran>> species were found: Hydrospilus degreefi gen. et spec. nov. and Bryospilus culverwelli spec, nov.. Both species lack a compound eye. Apart from these new species, Bryospilus repens, which was thought to be restricted to epiphytic moss, was also found. Hydrospilus degreefi gen. et Spec. nov. bears three setae on the inner distal lobe of P1, suggesting a relationship with Alona.
