Principal Investigator
Francesc Mesquita-Joanes
Sampling Methods

Data obtained from published and unpublished scientific literature or own data. Samples of Entocytheridae obtained by collecting their hosts (crayfish and other crustaceans) by hand or traps, etc. and filtering the fixative (ethanol, formalin) or medium (carbonated water, habitat water) where the hosts were stored.

Study Extent Global published information on the presence of living individuals of the Family Entocytheridae.

Method step description:

  1. Search the literature databases, find original sources citing the presence of an Entocytheridae anywhere in the world. Note the species cited and the location. Find the (aprox.) coordinates for the location.
