A checklist of Hyalella (Amphipoda) from Chile

A checklist of Hyalella (Amphipoda) from Chile INTRODUCTION Freshwater amphipods inhabit superficial and underground waters. They have different trophic roles: herbivores, carnivores, detritivores or omnivores (Witt & Hebert, 2000; Väinöla et al., 2008). In South America, amphipods are represented by species inhabiting subterranean (Bogidellidae) and superficial (Hyalellidae) waters (Väinöla et al., 2008). Hyalellidae are represented in the Americas by the genus Hyalella S. I. Smith, 1874, which has recently been studied from a taxonomic perspective (Witt & Hebert, 2000; González & Watling, 2002a-c, 2003a-d; Witt et al., 2003; González, 2003; González et al., 2006; Dos Santos et al., 2008) and possibly also occurs in New Zealand (Pugh et al., 2002). Recent studies on Chilean species of Hyalella indicate that these amphipods inhabit subsaline inland waters such as streams and shallow ponds in northern Chile (González, 2003; De los Ríos et al., 2010), coastal inland waters (González, 2003), and the oligotrophic inland waters of Patagonia between 38-51°S (González, 2003; De los Ríos et al., 2007; De los Ríos & Roa, 2010). Similar studies have investigated central Argentinean and Patagonian rivers (Miserendino, 2001; Miserendino et al., 2008) and central Argentina (Lopretto, 1982, 1983a, b; Jergentz et al., 2004; Zilli et al., 2008).

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Freshwater amphipods inhabit superficial and underground waters. They have different trophic roles: herbivores, carnivores, detritivores or omnivores (Witt & Hebert, 2000; Väinöla et al., 2008). In South America, amphipods are represented by species inhabiting subterranean (Bogidellidae) and superficial (Hyalellidae) waters (Väinöla et al., 2008). Hyalellidae are represented in the Americas by the genus Hyalella S. I. Smith, 1874, which has recently been studied from a taxonomic perspective (Witt & Hebert, 2000; González & Watling, 2002a-c, 2003a-d; Witt et al., 2003; González, 2003; González et al., 2006; Dos Santos et al., 2008) and possibly also occurs in New Zealand (Pugh et al., 2002). Recent studies on Chilean species of Hyalella indicate that these amphipods inhabit subsaline inland waters such as streams and shallow ponds in northern Chile (González, 2003; De los Ríos et al., 2010), coastal inland waters (González, 2003), and the oligotrophic inland waters of Patagonia between 38-51°S (González, 2003; De los Ríos et al., 2007; De los Ríos & Roa, 2010). Similar studies have investigated central Argentinean and Patagonian rivers (Miserendino, 2001; Miserendino et al., 2008) and central Argentina (Lopretto, 1982, 1983a, b; Jergentz et al., 2004; Zilli et al., 2008).
