A Note On Pseudevadne Tergestina Claus, 1877 (Branchiopoda: Cladocera: Onychopoda) of Banco Chinchorro, with Observations on its Biology
Abstract:Zooplankton samples from Banco Chinchorro cointaned individuals of the marine cladoceran Pseudevadne tergestina. Samples were taken from the surface layer (1–2 m) during few days in 2–3 September, 1999 and 28–29 March, 2000. This species was present only in September in the sampling stations outside the atoll with a maximum density of 0.6 ind m−3. The species was not recorded inside the atoll. Parthenogenetic females carried from 1–5 embryos in the brood pouch. All the developing stages were represented (I–VI). The most frequent stage was IIIB followed by IIIC. The size of the animals captured ranged from 550–830 mm.
