Remarks: This slide was erroneously marked "paratype". It was prepared by A.W. Zahniser in 1932, and probably holds the single "Black Swamp" specimen collected by C.D. Marsh in Panama (Harring, 1914: 531). However, B. mirabilis was described by Daday (1897: 140) from New Guinea. The species name (misspelled "miribalis" (sic) on label) appears to have later been added to the original label.

Catalog Number: ANSP 449
Type Status: SYNTYPE
Ploimida:Brachionidae
Original Identification: Brachionus novaezealandiae  Morris, 1913
Locality: Small pond at Totara, near Oamaru
Country, State/Province: New Zealand
Collected: October 1912  by C.B. Morris
Habitat: Epizoic on Daphnia thomsoni.
Specimens: 1 female
Preparator: F.J. Myers
Remarks: Specimen poorly contracted. According to Myers' notebooks this specimen was collected by C.B. Morris near Oamaru and sent to F.J. Myers in 1912. Locality according to Morris (1913, p. 167) is "a small pond at Totara", where it occurred "parasitic on Daphnia thomsoni". Myers indicated "Paratype" in his card file. The slide, however, was prepared in 1939 without any indication of the type status, and no type was designated by Morris (1913, p. 163-167). According to Russell (1951) further syntypes, designated paratypes by Russell (op. cit., p. 52), are slides 26 & 27 deposited in the C.B. Morris collection of microscope slides at the Cawthron Institute, Nelson, New Zealand. According to the Cawthron staff member responsible for the archives (pers. comm.), this collection is no longer housed at Nelson, but may have been transferred to the Mt. Albert Research Centre, Auckland, in the late 50s. Specified species misspelled "novaezelandea" (sic) on slide.

Brachionus rotundiformis  Tschugunoff, 1921
Catalog Number: ANSP 97
Ploimida:Brachionidae
Original Identification: Brachionus plicatilis  Müller, 1786
Locality: Lac Nakuru
Country, State/Province: Kenya
Collected: 1936  by P.M. Jenkin
Specimens: 6 females
Preparator: F.J. Myers
Remarks: "Lac Nakuru, Abyssinia" (=Ethiopia), indicated as the locality on the label. To our knowledge, however, no Lake Nakuru exists in Ethiopia and we assume this material actually originates from Kenya, where the collector of this material, Miss P.M. Jenkin, participated in the 'Percy Sladen Expedition to some Rift Valley lakes' in 1929 (cf. de Beauchamp, 1932). The date of collection (1936) is thus doubtful and may actually be the date when Myers received the material.

Keratella robusta  (Lauterborn, 1900)

Ploimida:Brachionidae
Original Identification: Keratella robusta  (Lauterborn, 1900)
Locality: Lake Warren, Bucks Co.
Country, State/Province: USA , Pennsylvania
Collected: 1939  by L.M. Bennetch
Specimens: 6 females
Preparator: L.M. Bennetch
Remarks: Preparation in poor condition. The name robusta is generally used to designate an infrasubspecific rank (forma, varietas) within the polymorphic species K. cochlearis (see e.g., Ahlstrom, 1943; Koste, 1978). Since the taxonomy exclusively relies on lorica characteristics in the genus Keratella, but morphometrical and morphological characteristics such as caudal spine length and fine structure of the dorsal lorica have been shown to vary in response to environmental conditions (Pejler, 1962; Ruttner-Kolisko, 1972; Gilbert & Stemberger, 1974) the taxonomical relevance of criteria previously used for systematics is very unclear.

Remarks: This single specimen bears some resemblance to K. serrulata f. curvicornis Rylov, but the lorica is unusually soft, more strongly rounded caudally and the dorsal facets are very indistinct.

The holotype was deposited in New York (AMNH 993), but cannot be located in the collection (October 2001).

Keratella tecta  (Gosse, 1851)
Catalog Number: ANSP 1367
Ploimida:Brachionidae
Original Identification: Keratella cochlearis var. tecta (Gosse, 1851)
Locality: Green Pond, Farmersville, Northampton Co.
Country, State/Province: USA , Pennsylvania
Collected: 1941  by L.M. Bennetch
Specimens: 8 females
Preparator: L.M. Bennetch
Remarks: Generally considered an infrasubspecific taxon of the polymorphic species K. cochlearis (see e.g., Ahlstrom, 1943; Koste, 1978), this taxon was also treated as a distinct morphospecies by more recent authors (e.g., Koste & Shiel, 1987). This may be justified by the clear-cut ecological requirements of this Keratella. The taxonomy in this genus, however, exclusively relies on lorica characteristics such as caudal spine length and fine structure of the dorsal lorica, which have been shown to vary in response to environmental conditions (Pejler, 1962; Ruttner-Kolisko, 1972; Gilbert & Stemberger, 1974). The taxonomical relevance of criteria previously used for systematics and hence the rank of this taxon is thus very unclear.
