Abstract

The invertebrate fauna of many Antarctic
ice-free areas, even those close to permanent research
stations, can be poorly known. Here we describe some
nematodes from freshwater and saline, marine-derived
lakes of the Vestfold Hills, East Antarctica. The freshwater
lakes contained the widespread East Antarctic
endemic species, Plectus frigophilus Kirjanova, 1958.
The saline lakes were inhabited by two recently
described species, Halomonhystera halophila Andrassy,
2006 and Halomonhystera continentalis Andrassy,
2006, and by a new species described in this
report, Hypodontolaimus antarcticus sp. n. Originally
marine but now brackish Highway Lake contained a
nematode fauna with both freshwater and marinederived
components. The nematode fauna of Antarctica
now consists of 54 named species, 22 of which are
found in East Antarctica.
