MetadataShow full item record
In the present study, we contribute to the diversity of marine meiofauna of Turkey by describing both sexes of Schizopera karanovicisp. nov., which were collected from the intertidal zone of Alata beach, Turkey. The new species is closely related to S. lagrecai Pesce 1988, S. minuta Noodt 1955, and S. variseta Bozic, 1964, but can easily be differentiated from its congeners by the width/length ratio and setal organisation of the caudal rami and P5.
