Cyprididae

Not to be confused with Cyprinidae, a family of fish.

Cyprididae is "the most diverse group of freshwater ostracods".[1] It contains 1000 species, which represents 50% of the known species of freshwater ostracods (other speciose families include Candonidae, with 25%, and Limnocytheridae, with 10%).[2] Around 60% of genera in the family are endemic to a single zoogeographic region.[2] The family contains 25 subfamilies, and is most diverse in the Afrotropic ecozone, with over 300 species in 45 genera.[2] Many Cyprididae occur in temporary water bodies and have drought-resistant eggs, mixed/parthenogenetic reproduction and ability to swim. These biological attributes pre-adapt them to form successful radiations in these habitats.[3] Bennelongia is an interesting genus of the family Cyprididae. It may be the last true descendent genus of the Mesozoic (and now extinct) lineage of Cypridea, which was a dominant lineage of ostracod in non-marine waters in the Cretaceous.[2]
