6th December 2013

Another paper in the series describing new species of Bennelongia ostracods has been published (link).  Koen Martens, Stuart Halse and Isa Schön have just described another 7 species from WA, mostly occurring in granite rock pools.  This adds to the 9 species from WA and 3 species from Queensland described in 2012; many more await formal description.  Further details of the work are given under the Taxonomy section.
