Crustacea biodiversity invertebrates oceanic islands seamounts taxonomy

Abstract

The current work is part of a taxonomic study on ostracods from Trindade Island and four seamount summits of the Vitoria-Trindade Chain. Twenty-six species belonging to nine families and 17 genera were identified. Five species are described as new, as follows: two Cytheruridae (Hemicytherura trindadensis sp. nov., Semicytherura parva sp. nov.) and three Loxoconchidae (Loxocorniculum micropapillosum sp. nov., Phlyctocythere christophei sp. nov., Phlyctocythere apua sp. nov.). The other taxa are being studied in an ongoing survey.
