Abstract

Gurney (1927), while erecting the genus Kelleria for the accommodation of two newly discovered species of cyclopoid copepods from the Suez Canal, K. regalis Gurney and K. purpurocincta Gurney, also suggested the transfer of two previously described species, Pseudanthessius propinquus T. Scott (1895) and P. pectinatus A. Scott (1909), into this new genus. A similar generic transfer was proposed by Nicholls (1944) for yet another species of Pseudanthessius—P. fucicolus T. Scott (1912). In view of the subsequent description of three additional species by Sewell (1949), and that of a fourth by Krishnaswamy (1952), the genus Kelleria now contains, in order of description, the following nine species: K. propinqua (T. Scott), K. pectinata (A. Scott), K. fucicola (T. Scott), K. regalis Gurney, K. purpurocincta Gurney, K. andamanensis Sewell, K. camortensis Sewell, K. gurneyi Sewell, and K. rubimaculata Krishnaswamy. In the course of recent investigations into the brackish water zooplankton of the Gippsland Lakes, Victoria, a species of Kelleria has come to hand which corresponds with none of the above species and is here described as new.
