TitleAmsterdam Expeditions to the West Indian Islands, Report 14. The taxonomy and zoogeography of the family Bogidiellidae (Crustacea, Amphipoda), with emphasis on the West Indian taxa
JournalBijdragen tot de Dierkunde
AbstractThe diagnosis of a family of groundwater Amphipoda, the Bogidiellidae, is revised. Based on a cladistic analysis, the former genus Bogidiella is subdivided. In its present conception, the Bogidiellidae comprise eleven named genera, seven subgenera, and 50 named species, whereas several other taxa remain unnamed. These are distributed over all major continents (except Antarctica), and some oceanic islands. This distribution pattern is presumably due to at least two major vicariant processes: the breakup of Pangaea in the Mesozoic and the geological regression movements in the Tertiary.
A number of West Indian taxa is described, including four new species.
