Subfamily Aloninae   Dybowski & Grochowski, 1894 emend. Frey, 1967

57. Alona affinis   (Leydig, 1860) s.lat. Recorded by Stingelin (1913). A. affinis   s.str. occurs in the Palaearctic, but populations from other regions needs a revision ( Sinev 2009, 2013; Van Damme et al. 2010). In Colombia, it occurs in the Andean region.

58. Alona costata   Sars, 1862 s.lat. Recorded by Stingelin (1913). A. costata   s.str. occurs in the Palaearctic, but populations from other regions needs a revision (Van Damme et al. 2010). In Colombia, it occurs in the Andean region.

59. Alona dentifera   (Sars, 1901). Recorded by Álvarez (2010) and Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012, fig 27). Valid Neotropical species ( Sinev et al. 2004; Van Damme et al. 2010). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

60. Alona guttata   Sars, 1862 s.lat. Recorded by Stingelin (1913). A. guttata   s.str. is a Palearctic species (Van Damme et al. 2010, 2013), but there is a widely distributed group of close species which needs to be revised worldwide. In Colombia, it occurs in the Andean region.

61. Alona glabra   Sars, 1901. Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012, fig 24) and Fuentes-Reinés (2014 a, fig 2). This is a valid Neotropical species ( Sinev 2001 a; Kotov et al. 2013 a). A. glabra   reported from La Guajira Department ( Fuentes-Reinés 2014 a, fig 2) should be revised; this taxon could be a new species. In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

Alona guttata   var. tuberculata Kurz, 1875   . See Alona guttata   . Tuberculated forms of different species are ecological morphotypes only (Van Damme et al. 2010).

Alona pulchella King, 1853   . Recorded by Stingelin (1913). A. pulchella   s.str. inhabits Australia and Oriental region ( Sinev 2001 b; Kotov et al. 2013 a). All adequately described populations from South America belong in reality to A. glabra   .

Alona verrucosa Sars, 1901   . See Anthalona verrucosa   .

62. Alona karelica Stenroos, 1897   * s.lat. New record for Colombia. It was found in Ciénaga Grande de Santa Martha. Alona karelica   s.str. is a Palearctic taxon ( Van Damme et al. 2011 a), but similar forms were reported from Venezuela ( Rey & Vasquez 1986, plate IX, figs 1-11) and Mexico ( Elías-Gutíerrez et al. 2008 b, figs 43.6-43.7; Van Damme et al. 2011 a, figs 1 B, F, J). Specimens from the Ciénaga Grande de Santa Marta, Colombia have the same characters as those reported by Rey & Vasquez 1986 (Plate IX, figs 1-11) from Orinoquia basin and by Elías- Gutiérrez et al. (2008 b, fig 43.6-43.7) and Van Damme et al. (2011 a, figs 1 B, F, J) from Coatzacoalco River, Mexico. Their diagnostic characters are: 1) basal spine of postabdominal claw short, with length similar to the diameter of the claw base, 2) a quadrangular labrum with labral keel having a wavy ventral margin, 3) a characteristic shape of the postabdomen. A. karelica   reported from Venezuela ( Rey & Vasquez 1986) was wrongly identified, because the length of its basal spine on the postabdominal claw was twice as long as in A. karelica   s. str. ( Sinev 2001 a), nevertheless this taxon belongs to the pulchella   group ( Sinev, 2001 a; Van Damme et al. 2011 a). Alona cf. karelica   from the Neotropics should be revised; this taxon could be a new species. In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

63. Anthalona verrucosa   (Sars, 1901). Recorded by Álvarez (2010) and Fuentes-Reinés (2014 a, fig 1). Neotropical species ( Van Damme et al. 2011 b). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

Allonella karua King, 1853   . See Karuoalona karua   .

Camptocercus australis   var. dadayi   . See Camptocercus dadayi   .

64. Camptocercus dadayi   ( Stingelin, 1913). Recorded by Stingelin (1913, fig 14) and Villabona-González et al. (2011). Valid Neotropical species ( Kotov et al. 2013 a). This species was first described from South America as Camptocercus australis   var. dadayi Stingelin, 1913   (figs 21-22). Smirnov (1971) considered it to be a variety of C. lilljeborgi   , then Rey & Vasquez (1986) redescribed it and regarded as a valid taxon. Nevertheless in his revision of the genus Camptocercus, Smirnov (1998)   suggested that the form described by Rey & Vazquez (1986) is C. australis Sars 1886   . However, C. dadayi   is a separate, well-defined taxon ( Sinev 2015). In Colombia, it is distributed in the Andean and Caribbean regions.

Euryalona occidentalis Sars, 1901   . See Euryalona orientalis   .

65. Euryalona orientalis   ( Daday, 1898). Recorded by Pearse (1916) and Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012, fig 25). This species was described by Daday (1898) from Sri Lanka and redescribed by Rajapaksa & Fernando (1987). Paggi (1980) and then Van Damme & Maiphae (2013) made a brief comparison of E. orientalis   and E. occidentalis   and accepted both species as valid. In contrast, Rajapaksa & Fernando (1987) and Kotov et al. (2013 a) synonymized O. occidentalis   with O. orientalis   , the latter is regarded as a tropicopolitan taxon. Taking into consideration that both taxa are from different regions and that a non-cosmopolitism in many species of cladocera   has been observed (i.e, genera Alona   , Leberis   , etc.), a revision of the genus in order to clarify the status of both species is needed. In Colombia, E. orientalis   occurs in the Caribbean region.

66. Graptoleberis testudinaria   (Fischer, 1848). Recorded by Barón-Rodríguez et al. (2006). According to Van Damme & Dumont (2010), G. testudinaria   is distributed in the Palearctic only. However, recently Hudec (2010) unambiguously demonstrated that there are two different species of Graptoleberis   in Central Europe. Species recorded in the Neotropics under this name should be revised. In Colombia, it occurs in the Andean region. Sars (1901) proposed that South American populations belong to especial taxon, G. testudinaria   var occidentalis Sars 1901   . Paggi (2005), Elmoor-Loureiro (2007) and Van Damme & Dumont (2010) used the latter name (although the latter authors indicated necessity of a formal comparison among European and South American populations for status definition). Therefore, the Neotropical populations have a chance to be assigned to G. occidentalis   in the future.

67. Karualona karua   (King, 1853) s.lat. Recorded by Pearse (1916). Unfortunately this author does not represent any illustrations or description of the species and probably it could be K. muelleri   or K. penuelasi   . Real K. karua   s. str. occurs in Australasian region (Van Damme et al. 2013). Species recorded outside Australia under this name should be revised.

68. Karualona muelleri   (Richard, 1897). Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012, fig 28). Neotropical species (Van Damme & Dumont, 2010). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

69. Karualona penuelasi   Dumont & Silva-Briano, 2000 *. Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés & Elmoor-Loureiro (unpublished data). Neotropical species ( Dumont & Silva-Briano 2000; Kotov et al. 2013 a). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

70. Coronatella monacantha (Sars, 1901). Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés & Zoppi de Roa (2013, figs 12-13). This species is considered as Neotropical one, and records outside the Neotropics need a revision (Van Damme et al. 2010). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

Kurzia latissima (Kurz, 1875)   . Recorded by Stingelin (1913) and Barón-Rodríguez et al. (2006). It is a doubtful record and probably these populations belonged to K. polyspina   , once K. latissima   has been reported from Afrotropical and Palearctic regions ( Kotov et al. 2013 a).

71. Kurzia polyspina   Hudec, 2000. Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012, fig 20). Netoropical species ( Hudec, 2000). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

72. Kurzia media   (Birge 1879). Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012, fig 21). Distributed in the Nearctic region ( Kotov et al. 2013 a), this species has been reported from Mexico ( Elías-Gutiérrez et al. 2008 a). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region. Unfortunately, Hudec (2000) observed only few parthenogenetic females from Pinehurst Lake - Canada, while Birge's (1980) initial description was inadequae. This taxon needs to be revised.

73. Leydigiopsis ornata   Daday, 1905. Recorded by Álvarez (2010) and Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012, fig 19). This taxon was described by Daday (1905) from Paraguay and has been redescribed by Rey & Vasquez (1986) and Van Damme & Sinev (2013). Neotropical species ( Kotov et al. 2013 a; Van Damme & Sinev 2013). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

74. Leydigia (Neoleydigia)   cf. striata Birabén, 1939. Recorded by Barón-Rodríguez et al. (2006) and Fuentes- Reinés (2014 b, figs 1-3). Valid Neotropical species ( Kotov et al. 2013 a). In Colombia, it has been reported in the Andean and Caribbean regions.

Leydigia (Neoleydigia) acanthocercoides (Fischer, 1854)   s. str. Recorded by Villabona-González et al (2011). L. acanthocercoides   s.str. is distributed in Palearctic ( Kotov 2009). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region. Unfortunately, Villabona-González et al. (2011) did not represent any illustrations or description, and their record could be mis-identification. According to Kotov (2009), the acanthocercoides   -group needs to be revised.

75. Leydigia (Neoleydigia) lourdesae   Kotov & Fuentes-Reinés, 2014. Recorded by Kotov & Fuentes-Reinés (2014). It is an endemic species with unknown distribution in South America. It occurs in the Caribbean region of Colombia.

76. Leberis davidi   (Richard, 1895). Recorded by Álvarez (2010); Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012); Fuentes- Reinés (2014 a). Neotropical species ( Kotov et al. 2013 a). The specimens reported by Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012) and Fuentes-Reinés (2014 a) really belong to Leberis colombiensis   . Unfortunately, Álvarez (2010) did not present a description or illustration of L. davidi   , therefore its presence in Colombia should be confirmed. In Colombia, it has been found in the Caribbean region.

77. Leberis colombiensis   Kotov & Fuentes-Reinés, 2015. Recorded by Kotov & Fuentes-Reinés (2015). Endemic species, widespread in the Caribbean coast of Colombia.

78. Nicsmirnovius fitzpatricki   (Chien, 1970). Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés & Zoppi de Roa (2013, figs 10-11) and Fuentes-Reinés (2014 a, figs 3-4). Nearctic species, but it has been also reported in the Neotropics ( Van Damme et al. 2003; Kotov et al. 2013 a). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

79. Notoalona sculpta (Sars, 1901). Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012, fig 26) and Fuentes-Reinés (2014 a). Neotropical species ( Kotov et al. 2013 a; Van Damme et al. 2013). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

80. Notoalona globulosa   ( Daday, 1898) s. lat. Recorded by Álvarez, 2010. It comprises a species complex with circumtropical distribution (Van Damme et al. 2013). N. globulosa   s.str. inhabits tropics of the Old World. This taxon needs to be revised in South America. It occurs in the Caribbean region of Colombia.

81. Oxyurella ciliata Bergamin, 1839. Recorded by Álvarez (2010) and Fuentes-Reinés & Zoppi de Roa (2013, fig 9). Neotropical species ( Kotov et al. 2013 a). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

82. Oxyurella longicaudis (Birge, 1910). Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2013, fig 22). Neotropical species ( Elmoor-Loureiro 1998). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

83. Oxyurella tenuicaudis   (Sars, 1862). Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés et al. (2012, fig 23). O. tenuicaudis   s.str. is distributed in the Palearctic ( Kotov et al 2013 a). Nevertheless, this taxon has been reported in the Neotropics (Zoppi de Roa & Lopez 2008). Populations from the Neotropics should be revised. In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.

84. Parvalona parva   (Daday, 1905) *. Recorded by Fuentes-Reinés from Magdalena Department (unpublished new record). Neotropical species ( Van Damme et al. 2005; Elmoor-Loureiro et al. 2009). In Colombia, it occurs in the Caribbean region.
