TitleThe stygobiont Isopods of the Genus Cyathura in the Dominican Republic (Crustacea; Isopoda; Anthuridae)
JournalBulletin Zoologisch Museum
AbstractDuring the Amsterdam Expedition to the Dominican Republic five samples containing three species of anthurid isopods, two of them new to science, were collected, viz. Cyathura (Stygocyathura) salpiscinalis Botosarieanu & Stock, 1982; C. (S.) broodbakkeri n. sp.; and C. (C.) tridentata n. sp. The latter is the first hypogean representative of Cyathura s. str. from the Caribbean.
All the known Hispaniolan species, C. (S.) motasi Botosaneanu & Stock, 1982, excepted, are found in a limited area that during the Tertiary was covered by an inland sea. Here a rapid speciation occurred in two isolated lakes that were cut off from the sea, and from each other, as a result of uplift in this valley.
