A new record of Cletocamptus confluens (Schmeil 1894) (Copepoda Harpacticoida) from a small pond in north-west Namibia

WOLFGANG MIELKE

Abstract


Specimens of Cletocamptus Schmankewitsch 1875, collected in a small
pond in north-west Namibia, were identified and redescribed as C. confluens
(Schmeil 1894). The morphology of both sexes is illustrated in detail and compared
to the existing descriptions. The new record expands considerably the
known distribution of C. confluens. A map showing the locations of this widespread
species is presented.
KEY WORDS: Cletocamptus confluens, Copepoda Harpacticoida, systematics,
Namibia, distribution.
