Abstract

In the present paper Indocandona nagarjuna sp. n. is described. It was collected from a bore-well in southeastern India. This is only the second representative of the genus and the third stygobiont ostracode species described from India. The new species has many clear morphological differences compared with the type species of the genus, the most important ones being a much reduced caudal ramus and extremely elongated fingers on the prehensile palps. The position of the new species in the genus, as well as that of the genus Indocandona Gupta, 1984 in the tribe Trapezicandonini and its adaptation to subterranean waters, are also discussed.
