The ostracod genus Cytheropteron (Ostracoda: Crustacea) has been widely used for paleoenvironmental, paleoceanographic, and paleobiogeographic studies. But species-level data remain limited, especially for deepwater species. Here, we show the depth and spatial distribution patterns of 33 species of the ostracod genus Cytheropteron found in recent surface sediments of Icelandic waters. Species-specific depth ranges may serve as a useful tool in ostracod-based paleoenvironmental reconstruction. Biogeographic distributions of Cytheropteron species indicate the shallow Greenland-Iceland-Faroe Ridge as the major barrier for the distribution of deep-sea organisms.
