On a new terrestrial genus and species of Scottiinae (Crustacea, Ostracoda) from Australia, with a discussion on the phylogeny and the zoogeography of the subfamily
The Scottiinae, thus far comprising the genera Scottia and Mesocypris, form an important lineage of (semi-) terrestrial ostracods within the family Cyprididae. Scottia has a mainly Holarctic distribution, while Mesocypris was thus far known from Australia (including Tasmania) and Africa (including Madagascar). Detailed description of a new species from Australia and subsequent cladistic analysis of the Scottiinae as a whole, based on morphological characteristics, showed that the two...[Show more]
