TitleAmsterdam expeditions to the West Indian Islands, Report 2. New data on taxonomy and zoogeography of ingolfiellid Crustacea
JournalBijdragen tot de Dierkunde
AbstractGroundwaters (in wells, springs, caves, macroporous interstitia...) of 29 Caribbean islands have been investigated. Only on the four islands off the coast of Venezuela (viz., Aruba, CuraƧao, Bonaire, and Margarita) members of the suborder Ingolfiellidea (Crustacea, Amphipoda) have been encountered, altogether six species, of which three are described here for the first time. The zoogeographical implications of this limited range in the West Indies is discussed.
