The genus Megacyclops (Crustacea: Copepoda) in the Netherlands: Distribution and ecology
Author(s): Martin Soesbergen
Abstract: This paper describes the distribution and ecology of the genus Megacyclops in the Netherlands. Three species of this genus are present in the Netherlands: Megacyclops gigas (Claus, 1857), Megacyclops latipes (Lowndes, 1927), and Megacyclops viridis (Jurine, 1820). M. latipes is new to the Dutch fauna. The taxonomic position and status of Megacyclops viridis var. pelagica (De Lint, 1922) is clarified.
