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

(50) Alona affinis (Leydig, 1860)   s. lat. (described as Lynceus affinis Leydig, 1860   ; syn Biapertura affinis   ). Lago Villarrica ( Löffler 1961); Llanquihue lake (41 ° 07' S; 72 ° 50 ' W), Pellaifa lake (39 ° 30 ' S; 71 ° 57 ' W), Pichilafquén lagoon (39 ° 13 ' S; 72 ° 12 ' W) (Zufliga & Dominguez 1977; Ruiz & Bahamonde 1989); Araucanía to Lakes districts (39 ° 48 ' S – 54 ° 48 ' S) ( Berrios & Sielfeld 2000). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). This is a cosmopolitan species group ( Sinev 1997), South American populations could belong to A. ossiani Sinev, 1998   or related taxa ( Sinev 2013).

(51) Alona altiplana Kotov, Sinev & Berrios, 2010   . Chungará lake (18 ° 15 ' S; 69 ° 10 ' W), Salar de Lagunillas (19 ° 59 ' S; 68 ° 54 ' W), Salar de Huasco (20 ° 18 ' S; 68 ° 50 ' W), Laguna Lejía (23 ° 30 ' S; 67 ° 42 ' W) (Kotov et al. 2010). An endemic taxon of Andean high mountains (Kotov et al. 2010).

(52) Alona cambouei Guerne and Richard, 1893   . “Environs de Concepción” (36 ° 50 ' S; 73 ° 03' W) ( Richard 1897); Laguna de los Indios (33 ° 40 ' S; 70 ° 08' W) ( Brehm 1936); Chungará lake ( Domínguez 1973); Plateado reservoir (33 ° 04' S; 71 ° 39 ' W), Orozco reservoir (33 ° 19 ' S; 71 ° 25´W), Peral reservoir (33 ° 30 ' S; 71 ° 35 ' W), Rapel reservoir (34 ° 10 ' S; 71 ° 39 ' W), Lleu-Lleu ( Araya & Zúñiga 1985; Ruiz & Bahamonde 1989); Chungará lake (18 ° 14 ' S; 69 ° 09' W) ( Domínguez, 1973); "Arica & Parinacota to Valparaiso districts (18 ° 28 ' S – 34 ° 10 ' S)" ( Berrios & Sielfeld 2000). This taxon belong to the pulchella   -group, which South American populations need to be specially revised ( Sinev, 2001). It could be also mis-identified A. glabra (Van Damme et al. 2010)   .

Alona cambouei patagonica Ekman, 1900   . Southern Patagonia, Quellén (= Quellón?, 43 ° 06' S; 73 ° 06' W) ( Ekman 1900). The taxon needs to be revised, it could be a valid species.

(53) Alona costata Sars, 1862   s.lat. Pellaifa (39 ° 30 ' S; 71 ° 57 ' W) ( Löffler 1961). Cosmopolitan species group. Chilean populations need to be revised.

(54) Alona glabra Sars, 1901   . Salar de Lagunillas (19 ° 59 ' S; 68 ° 54 ' W), Salar de Huasco (20 ° 18 ' S; 68 ° 50 ' W) (Kotov et al. 2010). A Neotropical taxon (Van Damme et al. 2010), but it needs to be re-studied, because it contains at least two different phylogroups ( Elías-Gutiérrez et al. 2008).

(55) Alona guttata Sars, 1862   s.lat. Valdivia (39 ° 49 ' S; 73 ° 15 ' W) ( Vávra 1900); Peñuelas lagoon (33 ° 09' S; 71 ° 32 ' W) ( Araya & Zúñiga 1985; Ruiz & Bahamonde 1979); Valparaiso (33 ° 03' S) and Lakes región (45 ° 48 ' S) ( Berrios & Sielfeld 2000). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). A cosmopolitan taxon needs to be revised.

(56) Alona intermedia (Sars, 1862)   s.lat. Picton island (55 ° 04' S; 66 ° 52 ' W) ( Brehm 1936; Ruiz & Bahamonde 1979; Berrios & Sielfeld 2000). Puaucho pools (38 ° 57 ' S; 73 ° 19 ' W); Los Patos pool (39 ° 10 ' S; 71 ° 42 ' W) ( De los Ríos-Escalante et al. 2010). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). A complex of closely related species (Van Damme et al. 2010).

(57) Alona nigra Smirnov, 1996   . Salar de Lagunillas (19 ° 59 ' S; 68 ° 54 ' W), Salar de Huasco (20 ° 18 ' S; 68 ° 50 ' W) (Kotov et al. 2010). This taxon is an endemic of Andean highlands (Kotov et al. 2010).

(58) Alona pulchella (King, 1953)   . Valparaiso (33 ° 03' S) and Lakes región (45 ° 48 ' S) ( Berrios & Sielfeld 2000); Villarrica lake (39 ° 16 ' S; 72 ° 07' W), Pellaifa lake (39 ° 30 ' S; 71 ° 57 ' W), Llanquihue lake (41 ° 07' S; 72 ° 50 ' W), Todos los Santos lake (41 ° 46 ' S; 73 ° 15 ' W) ( Araya & Zúñiga 1985; Ruiz & Bahamonde 1979); Venus lagoon (46 ° 12 ' S; 72 ° 09' W) ( De los Ríos-Escalante et al. 2014). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). See A. cambouei   .

(59) Alona quadrangularis ( O.F. Müller, 1776)   s.lat. (described as Lynceus quadrangularis O.F. Müller, 1776   ). Puyehue lake (40 ° 39 ' S; 72 ° 30 ' W) ( Löffler 1961; Ruiz & Bahamonde 1979); (River and Lakes districts) ( Berrios & Sielfeld 2000). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). Most probably, the populations from Andean highlands belong to A. boliviana Sinev & Coronel, 2006   ( Van Damme et al. 2008 b), but populations from lowlands need to be accurately revised.

(60) Alona virago Brehm, 1935   . Isla Eberhard (51 ° 36 ' S; 72 ° 36 ' W) ( Brehm, 1935). It is an endemic of southern South America.

(61) Camptocercus australis Sars, 1896   . Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). This taxon is regarded as distributed in " Australia, South America, Jamaica " ( Smirnov 1998), South American populations need to be revised.

Camptocercus naticochensis Delachaux, 1919   . Chungará lake (18 ° 14 ' S; 69 ° 09' W) ( Domínguez 1973; Ruiz & Bahamonde 1989; Berrios & Sielfeld 2000). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). Species inquirenda, but it could be an endemic of South America.

(62) Camptocercus rectirostris (Schödler, 1862)   s.lat. Margarita island (41 ° 06' S; 72 ° 17 ' W), Llanquihue lake (41 ° 07' S; 72 ° 50 ' W), Pellaifa lake (39 ° 30 ' S; 71 ° 57 ' W) ( Löffler 1961); Del Inca lagoon (32 ° 49 ' S; 70 ° 09' W), Pichilafquén lagoon (39 ° 13 ' S; 72 ° 12 ' W) ( Araya & Zúñiga 1985); Plateado reservoir (33 ° 04' S; 71 ° 39 ' W), Orozco reservoir (33 ° 14 ' S; 71 ° 25 ' W), El Peral (33 ° 30 ' S; 71 ° 35 ' W), Rapel reservoir (34 ° 10 'S; 71 ° 29 ' W), Lanalhue lake (37 ° 55 ' S; 73 ° 19 ' W) ( Araya & Zúñiga 1985; Ruiz & Bahamonde 1989); Valparaiso (33 ° 03' S) and Lakes región (45 ° 48 ' S) ( Berrios & Sielfeld 2000). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). This species complex needs to be revised. Taking into consideration that Camptocercus aloniceps Ekman, 1900   was described from Southern Patagonia, Argentina, we believe that some of aforementioned records concern the latter taxon instead of the rectirostris   -group.

(63) Coronatella cf. circumfimbriata (Megard, 1967)   s.lat. Salar de Lagunillas (19 ° 59 ' S; 68 ° 54 ' W) (Kotov et al. 2010). "With a high probability, the studied population belongs to a new species" (Kotov et al. 2010).

(64) Coronatella poppei ( Richard, 1897)   . "près de Concepción (36 ° 50 ' S; 73 ° 03' W) et à Lunache" (= Limache, 32 ° 59 ' S; 71 ° 17 ' W) ( Richard 1897; Löffler 1961); Villarrica lake (39 ° 16 ' S; 72 ° 07' W), Valparaiso (33 ° 03' S) and Lakes región (45 ° 48 ' S) ( Berrios & Sielfeld 2000). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). A Neotropical taxon ( Van Damme & Dumont 2008 a; Van Damme et al. 2010).

(65) Geoffreya fryeri Kotov, Sinev & Berrios, 2010   . Salar de Lagunillas (19 ° 59 ' S; 68 ° 54 ' W) (Kotov et al. 2010). It is a micro-endemic known from a single locality (Kotov et al. 2010).

(66) Karualona karua (King, 1853)   s.lat. (described as Alona karua King, 1853   , syn. Alonella karua   ). Lunache (= Limache, 32 ° 59 ' S; 71 ° 17 ' W) ( Sars 1901; Ruiz & Bahamonde 1989); Valparaiso district (33 ° 03' S – 34 ° 10 ' W) ( Berrios & Sielfeld 2000). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). Sars (1901) was the first investigator pointing out the presence of this taxon (as Alonella karua   ) in Chile. He had no original samples from Chile, but he marked that Richard's (1897) specimens of " Alona mülleri   " belong to Alonella karua   . In reality, Karualona mülleri   is a separate Neotropical species ( Sinev & Hollwedel 2005), see below. But even after a series of recent revisions ( Dumont & Silva-Briano 2000; Van Damme et al. 2013), the status of karua   -like populations in South America still must be reevaluated.

(67) Karualona muelleri ( Richard, 1897)   (described as Alona mülleri Richard, 1897   ). "près de Concepción (36 ° 50 ' S; 73 ° 03' W) a Lunache (= Limache, 32 ° 59 ' S; 71 ° 17 ' W)" ( Richard 1897; Kotov & Ferrari 2010). This taxon is present in Neotropics ( Sinev & Hollwedel 2005; Van Damme et al. 2013).

(68) Leberis diaphanus (King, 1853)   s.lat. (described as Alona diaphana King, 1853   ). Huechun (33 ° 02' S; 70 ° 47 ' W) ( Löffler 1961). L. diaphanus   s.str. is absent in South America, but there are at least two species: L. davidi (Richard, 1895)   (see Sinev et al. 2005) and one more taxon ( Kotov & Fuentes-Reines 2015).

(69) Leydigia leydigi (Schödler, 1863)   s. lat. (described as Alona leydigi Schödler, 1863   ; syn. Leydigia quadrangularis Kurz, 1875   ). Plateado reservoir (33 ° 04' S; 71 ° 39 ' W) ( Domínguez & Zúñiga 1976); Peñuelas lagoon (33 ° 09' S; 71 ° 32 ' W), Llanquihue lake (41 ° 07' S; 72 ° 50 ' W) ( Araya & Zúñiga 1985; Ruiz & Bahamonde 1979); Valparaiso and Lakes district (33 ° 03' S – 45 ° 48 ' S) ( Berrios & Sielfeld 2000); Tamango lagoon (46 ° 11 ' S; 72 °08' W), lagoon close to General Carrera lake (46 ° 11 ' S; 72 °07'W), Laparent lagoon (46 ° 14 ' S; 72 ° 14 ' W), Venus lagoon (46 ° 12 ' S; 72 ° 09'W) ( De los Ríos-Escalante et al. 2014). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). J. Paggi (personal communication) concluded that Patagonian populations from Argentina belong to a separate species, undescribed yet, just this taxon could present in Chile.

(70) Leydigia louisi louisi Jenkin, 1934   . A small stream, Parinacota Region (18 ° 10 ' S; 69 ° 15 ' W), Salar de Huasco (20 ° 18 ' S; 68 ° 50 ' W) (Kotov et al. 2010). African-Neotropical taxon (Kotov 2009).

(71) Ovalona weinecki (Studer, 1878)   (described as Alona weinecki Studer, 1878   ). Isla de Pascua (27 ° 07' S; 109 ° 21 ' W) (Dumont & Martens 1996). Listed for Chile by Villalobos (2006). This is an endemic of islands close to South American continents in Subantarctic zone, but populations from different islands could belong to different species (Van Damme et al. 2010).
