Külköylüoğlu, Derya Akdemir, Mehmet Yavuzatmaca, Benjamin F. Schwartz,
and Benjamin T. Hutchins (2017) A new ostracod species, Cypria lacrima sp. nov.
(Cyclocypridinae) is proposed from an artesian well in Hays County,
Texas, U.S.A. The species differs from its conspecies with the
following characteristics: unique shape and pit ornamentation on
carapace, absence of “e” and “g” setae on both walking and cleaning
legs, long gamma seta on Mandibular palp, asymmetric clasping organs
and differences in the shape and size of other cheatotaxial parts. A
detailed comparison among the species of the genus is provided along
with ecological implications. This is a new report of the species from
an artesian well which increases geographic distribution of the genus
in the southern parts of the US.
Key words: Cyclocypridinae, New species, Taxonomy, Artesian well, Hays County.
