Abstract:
Cladocerans were investigated in the valley of the river Sûre (Belgium and Luxembourg) in August 2017. A total of 28 species was found, of which nine were new to the fauna of Luxembourg and three to the fauna of Belgium. The known range of Eubosmina berolinensis was widened to the southwest by 550 km. The American ball waterflea, C. brevilabris, is new to Belgian fauna. C. brevilabris is an exotic species in Europe. In this paper, its present status in Western Europe is discussed and additional data on its ecology is presented.
