Abstract

The present investigation explored the freshwater ostracods from Telangana, India, between the years January 2013 to March 2015. The study was collected and documented eleven species of ostracods belongs to three families. All the species were studied under a light microscope and the detailed taxonomic features were drawn through camera lucida. Interestingly, Fabaeformiscandona subacuta and Stenocypris simulans were recorded for the first time from India. Cyprinotus cingalensis and Chrissia formosa were new to this region. Stenocypris hislopi originally described from India was synonymzed as Chrissia hislopi. But, the present study clearly reconfirms that S. hislopi has septa around the carapace margin and widely distributed from this region.
