It starts off with an advent to the category Ostracoda with a different concentrate on freshwater ostracods and highlights sensible tools of their examine. The systematic half comprises an advent to all households; id keys for all subfamilies, genera and species; diagnoses for every subfamily and genus; and lists of synonyms and distribution of species. The textual content is richly illustrated with distribution maps, line drawings of key commonly used features, and diverse SEM photos. Serving as a good start line for all extra examine on freshwater ostracods, it may be regular not just through ostracodologists, but additionally through crustaceologists, evolutionists and ecologists.

Some podocopids lack the lens cells. In podocopid ostracods, the light-gathering ability of the eye is dominantly affected by the thickness and curvature of the outer surface of the lens (Tanaka 2006). The nerves from each of the cups have separate courses to the brain. In some of the deep-sea myodocopids, the frontal eyes have reached their most elaborate structure and function in ostracods (Elofsson 2006). Many setae play a sensory function in the ostracod body. Some of the setae on the surface of the carapace may play this role.

9 Third Thoracopod/The Seventh Limb This appendage is absent in the order Platycopida (Podocopa) and Cladocopina (Myodocopa). In all Podocopida, except for Cypridocopina, this is a walking appendage. In Cypridocopina this leg turns dorsally and often has a terminal pincer. ” In Myodocopida (Myodocopa) the leg is multisegmented and worm-like, carrying few setae on some of the segments and terminating in a rather complex structure. In Halocypridina (Myodocopida) the leg is very small, consisting of a cylindrical ramus and two terminal setae.

In Podocopida, the most posterior body appendages are transformed into two elongated rami with a maximum of two/three distal claws and one to six setae. For this group, Meisch uses the term “uropodal rami,” which is accepted in this book. This appendage is used mostly for walking, but in Myodocopa and Platycopida also for feeding. 1 Superfamily Cypridoidea In this superfamily, the uropodal rami consist of two rod-shaped structures (rami), each with two claws – one anterior and one posterior, and two setae – one anterior and one posterior (Fig.
