WA Museum Records and Supplements | Updated 8 months ago

ABSTRACT – A new species of stygobiont ostracod, Candonopsis (Abcandonopsis) linnaei sp. nov., is described from subterranean waters of the Murchison region in Western Australia. The new species can be easily distinguished from other representatives of the genus by 6-segmented antennula and incompletely divided penultimate segment of the walking leg. A key to the representatives of the genus Candonopsis in Australia is also provided.
