Spelaeoecia bermudensis new genus new species a halocyprid ostracod from marine caves in bermuda

Specimens of a new halocyprid belonging to the recently erected primitive subfamily Deeveyinae (Kornicker and Iliffe, 1985) have been taken at depths of 0-20 m in eight anchialine caves on Bermuda. The specimens, while showing some close similarities to Deeveya spiralis Kornicker and Iliffe, 1985, are sufficiently distinct to be ascribed to a new genus. While Deeveya has a carapace morphology typical of benthic forms, the carapace of Spelaeoecia is very similar to that of oceanic planktonic halocyprids and so may be close to their ancestral type.
