Supplement to "Checklist of the Anostraca"

Abstract

Our 1995 "Checklist of the Anostraca" covered all species described through 31 December 1993 along with those described in the volume from the Second International Large Branchiopod Symposium (Hydrobiologia 298). This supplement includes new species (14) described through 31 December 1996, one change in rank and one new species discussed in this symposium volume, anew synonym, and correction of errors discovered in the original. We do not update new range extensions. With these additions and changes, we number the named anostracan fauna of the world at 273 species and six subspecies organized in 23 genera. The need for more study of anostracan zoogeography is again demonstrated by the fact that seven of the 16 species added to the checklist are know only from their type localities. Until we have more complete information on the distributions of the species, it will not be possible to make an accurate evaluation of the status of anostracan biodiversity.
