A NEW SPECIES OF BOECKELLA (COPEPODA CALANOIDA) FROM WESTERN AUSTRALIA, AND COMMENTS ON TWO OTHER CONGENERS

WA Museum Records and Supplements | Updated 8 years ago

Boeckella shieli sp. novo is described from a temporary freshwater pool near Esperance. It has a pseudoche1ate extremity on the exopod of the male fifth right leg as in B. pseudochelae Searle and B. geniculata Bayly.

The probable synanthropic introduction of B. fluvialis Henry into Western Australia from New South Wales or Victoria is discussed.

An aberrant male of B. triarticulata (Thomson) with several intersexual features in the fifth pair of legs is described and discussed.
