( Daphnia ( Daphnia ) sp.)

Material. One ephippium from shallow water between vegetation, encanada, Terevaka (370m alt.), Leg. K. Desender, 20.XII.1993, Easter Island (sample 93.156)

Notes. Unknown Daphnia ( Daphnia ) species. 0.6mm in length, 0.5mm in width. Major axis of embryo chambers in ephippium perpendicular to the dorsal (carapace) margin. General shape symmetrical, not skewed posteriorly. Well-developed posterior spine with thick basis. Identification unknown. From one locality on Easter Island, Terevaka, with Ovalona , Sarscypridopsis and Paracyclops . The record is here placed between brackets, because only one ephippium was found. Until confirmation (more specimens), this should be treated as a potential contamination of the original sample.
