Description of the stygobiotic crustacean Dolekiella europaea gen. nov sp nov (Ostracoda, Limnocytheridae) from southern France



Description of the stygobiotic crustacean Dolekiella europaea gen. nov sp nov (Ostracoda, Limnocytheridae) from southern France



Vie et Milieu 57(1-2): 113-120



The description of Dolekiella europaea gen. nov. sp. nov., a living stygobiotic representative of the Timiriaseviinae subfamily (Ostracoda, Limnocytheridae) is presented. The ostracods were sampled in wells located along the Tech, Tet and Wart Rivers (southern France). The valve morphology (specially the hinge structure) of Dolekiella resembles those of Abrotocythere Zhao, 1987, a fossil ostracod taxon known from Tertiary deposits of China. Appendages of the new genus present unique characters, like the reduction of the distal cheatotaxy of the 2(nd) antenna. The phylogenetical relationships of Dolekiella to other Timiriaseviinae taxa as well as its biogeographical interest are discussed.
