Length measurements of sperms of 51 species of Cypridoidea ostracods were taken to supplement the paucity of ostracod sperm data in the published literature. The lengths of the posterior regions (carrying the mitochondria) and the thinner anterior regions were also measured when appropriate. Maximum lengths of sperms for individual species varied from 268 lm for Fabaeformiscandona velifera Smith and Janz, 2008 through to 11 787 lm for Australocypris robusta De Deckker, 1974; these lengths...[Show more]
