AbstractCollections from the Brazilian Planalto and Amazon regions contained several species of the cyclopoid copepod genus Tropocyclops. The morphology of T. schubarti is discussed; new records of this species extend its known distribution westward to the Brazilian Amazon and central highlands. Morphological characteristics of some populations of the T. prasinusgroup are most similar to T. prasinus mexicanus and T. prasinus s. str. Tropocyclops federensis n. sp. and T. nananae n. sp. are described from the Distrito Federal. A key and chart are provided for the identification of species of Tropocyclops recorded from the Americas.
