Description

This is the first published database of a Bathynellacea Chappuis, 1915 collection of slices and DNA extracts. It includes all data of bathynellids (Crustacea: Syncarida) collected in the last 48 years on the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands. It also includes specimens studied across much of Europe, as well as some specimens obtained from samples of North America, Asia, Africa and Australia. The samples come from groundwater (caves, springs, wells and hyporrheic habitat associated rivers) obtained from both, sampling campaigns and occasional sampling efforts.

The data set includes 3399 records (2657 slices and 742 DNA extracts) corresponding to three families (Parabathynellidae, Leptobathynellidae and Bathynellidae) of the order Bathynellacea; 52 genera and 92 species formally described, plus around 30 additional taxa in study and, thus, still unpublished. This represents more than half of all the genera known worldwide and almost a third of the species currently known in the world.

This dataset contains a specially relevant collection that includes holotypes and type series of 43 new species of Bathynellacea. This dataset has been created and reviewed by a specialist in the group (Ana I. Camacho), and each specimen, regardless of its shape, includes taxonomic, geographical and authorship information.

Data Records

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 3,399 records.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Geographic Coverage

Specimens from all around the world are included, from Alaska (USA) to New South Wales (Australia). The material from the USA come from a few samples collected in the states of Montana, Washington, Alaska and Texas. There are also 25 records from 3 South American localities in Chile, Brazil and Argentina. The Asian countries included in the collection are China, Thailand, Vietnam and a pair of localities from Mongolia and India. In the case of Africa, there are samples from Morocco and Chad. Australia is represented by samples from Queensland and New South Wales. The most important part of the database is composed by European records, especially from Spain, although other countries are also represented: Italy, France, Portugal, England, Bulgaria, Slovenia and Romania. In the case of Spain, almost all Autonomous Communities are represented, as well as most of the provinces, although Cantabria and Burgos are the most widely represented. The only Autonomous Communities not present in the data base are Extremadura and La Rioja.
