TitleAmsterdam Expeditions to the West Indian Islands, Report 27. Calabozoidea, a new suborder of stygobiont Isopoda, discovered in Venezuela
JournalBijdragen tot de Dierkunde
AbstractA new type of stygobiont Isopoda has been collected from wells in the “llanos” of Venezuela, near Calabozo, and in the hyporheal of a river in the Aragua State. On account of its body segmentation, and structure of uropods and pleopods, it must be considered as representing a new suborder. A diagnosis of the new suborder, new family and new genus, and a description of the type-species, are provided. Finally, a morphologic comparison with some of the already known suborders is made.
