Abstract

A NEW SPECIES OF THE GENUS CHYDORUS LEACH, 1843 (CLADOCERA, CHYDORIDAE) FROM RAJASTHAN, INDIA BY S. BISWAS Zoological Survey of India, Calcutta, India Brehm (1936) referred a single specimen from Nilgiri Hills to the genus Ch y dorus Leach, without assigning it to any definite species, though he mentioned that it belonged to the s phaericus group and had similarity with Chydorus denti- c¡datus Henry, 1919, in the general shape of the postabdomen. While studying the Cladocera collected from Rajasthan I have come across two specimens which appear to be similar to Brehm's specimen from Nilgiri Hills A critical examination shows that the present material belongs to a hitherto undescribed species of Chydoru.r. The present note gives a description of this species, which is named after Dr. V. Brehm, the noted specialist on this group. I am thankful to the Director, Zoological Survey of India, Calcutta, for facilities to examine the material, and to Dr. K. K. Tiwari for assistance in preparing this note. Chydorus brehmi sp. nov. Material. - 1 9 (holotype) and 1 9 (paratype). Dudu Talao, Dudu, Jaipur District, Rajasthan. January 8, 1959. Coll. S. Biswas. Zool. Surv. India, Reg. No. C. 4578/1 and 4579/1.
