CANTHOCAMPTIDAE Sars, 1906, emend. Monard, 1927, Lang, 1948


ELAPHOIDELLA Chappuis, 1928


The genus Elaphoidella s.l., with about 250 described species and subspecis, is, after Parastenocaris, the largest and more widespread copepod genus.

The genus is distributed worldwide with species inhabiting various habitats in both epigean and hypogean environments throughout different zoogeographic regions. The genus is characterized by a large number of stygobiotic taxa (Boxshall & Defaye 2008; Mori & Brancelj 2008; Galassi et al. 2009), many of them common in percolating water from unsaturated karstic habitats (i.e. epikarst) in the temperate zone (Brancelj 2009).

Apostolov (1985, 1988), according to the oligomerization of the swimming legs and the setation of the antennal exopodite, splitted the genus Elaphoidella into five genera, viz. Elaphoidella s. str., Elaphoidellopsis, Stygoelaphoidella, Neoelaphoidella and Praelaphoidella, suggesting as well the subdivision of Elaphoidella s. str. into two morphological groups, viz. gracilis-group and simplex-group, embracing species characterized by 6 or 4/5 setae on the distal article of the exopodite of leg 4, respectively.

The separation of the nominate genera has been critically discussed by Reid (1990), who pointed out mutual inconsistencies in the diagnosis of the new proposed genera, as well as several omissions and blunders in Apostolov's World key of the genus, and later on by Karanovic (1998; 2001) who considers that made by Apostolov "one unsuccessful attempt of revision of the genus Elaphoidella" (left: E. bidens bidens).

Hamond (1987) observed that old species descriptions and drawings of Canthocamptidae do not always agree with modern description standards and, in many cases, such defective descriptions could greatly confuse the status of some genera and subgenera in this family; in the same occasion, returned many genera within the family Canthocamptidae, including Elaphoidella s. str. to subgeneric status of the genus Canthocamptus Westwood. Hamond's statement has been recently supported by Hishida (1994) who described a new Elaphoidella from Nepal showing transitional characteristics between Elaphoidella and Attheyella, confirming as well the need of a World revision of the genera within the family Canthocamptidae.

Presently the majority of the copepodologists support the generic status of Elaphoidella, and its separation into 10 species-groups, suggested by Lang (1948) and later on supplemented by Petkovski & Brancelj (1988):

Recently, Karanovic (2001) presented a key to the gracils-group of species, as well as established new synonyms of Elaphoidella phreatica, [E. pseudophreatica (partim), E. pseudojeanneli, E. cavatica. E. croatica, E. oglasae, E. italica].

Pending a comprehensive review of the genus Elaphoidella, as well as of the family Canthocamptidae, and sharing Reid's (1990) objections, the name Elaphoidella s. l. is provisionally proposed for all the species in the genus, as well as the above synonynies will not considered in the following list.

    (1) Described as Elaphoidella kieferi by Petkovski & Brancelj (1985), this species has been renamed by Dussart & Defaye (1990) since another species with the same specific epithet was described by Loffler (1968) from lakes in Nepal

    (2) syn. E. derjugini (Rylov, 1932)

    (3) syn. E. subgracilis (Willey, 1934) Bruno et al. (2000) do not share this synonymy.

    (4) questionable species

    (5) Reid (1998) proposed this nomen novum for E. brevifurcata Chappuis, 1954 from India

    (6) Chappuis (1936) described this species as E. pectinata brevifurcata, from Brazil; later on the name went through various vicissitudes, including being synonymized with Elaphoidella pectinata s. str. by Lang (1948). It was raised to species rank by Apostolov (1985), although he used it twice in different ways and mispelling it once, as Neoelaphoidella brevifurca and as Neoelaphoidella pectinata brevifurcata.

    (7) synonym: Attheyella (Elaphoidella) bryobiota Ebert, 1976 (Reid, 1990)

    (8) syn. Elaphoidella rossellae Pesce, Galassi & Apostolov, 1987

    (9) synonym of E. valkanovi Basamakov, 1973 (Karanovic, 2001)

    (10) synonym of E. denticulata Chappuis, 1029

    (11) syn. of Elaphoidella elaphoides (according to Wells, 2007)

    (12) syn. of Elaphoidella phreatica (according to Wells, 2007)
