Expansicervinia glacieria new genus new species of cerviniidae copepoda harpacticoida from the beaufort sea with a revision of the family



Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington 93(4): 1204-1219



Cervinia unisetosa sp. nov., from the bathyal zone of the Beaufort Sea (Arctic Ocean), is unique in the Cervinia in that it possesses a reduced 5th leg, moderate length caudal rami and only 1 seta on each of the bases of the mandible and maxilliped. The discovery of the male of Pseudocervinia magna (Smirnov, 1946) proves that the species should be redesignated as a Cervinia as originally described. EXPANSICERVINIA glacieria gen. et sp. nov. from the deep-sea of the same area proves to be unique in the Cerviniidae in 3 expansions; the ventral margins of the 2nd thoracic segment; the basal segment of the antennule; and the terminal endopodite of the 2nd leg. Stratiopontotes Soyer, 1970, is synonymized with Ameliotes Por, 1969. Keys to the genus Cervinia and the family Cerviniidae are presented.
