Seventy-two cladoceran species from southern Thailand include eleven first records. Species accumulation curves were used to estimate the total number of species present, and Chao’s estimator was used to extrapolate the species number observed in 212 samples to the total number present. This S*
max amounted to 76.06 species, with a low ratio of variance/estimator. Cladoceran faunas were compared by a complementarity index at three levels: between habitat types, between different zones of Thailand, and between Thailand and other countries. The geographical gradient was quite strong, but because not all areas have been studied to the same degree and with the same taxonomic accuracy, some comparisons are robust while others are not.
