The genus Teratocyclops Ple¸sa, 1981 is redeŽ ned, mainly characterized by the following characters
of the female: the general habitus of the body, the 11-segmented antennule, the presence of the vestigial
exopodite on the antenna, the segmentation of the swimming legs, the structure of the distal
segment of the endopoditeof leg P4 with 1 spine and 3 setae, and the proximal segment of leg 5 fused
