The Zoogeography of the crustacean suborder Ingolfiellidea, with descriptions of new West Indian taxa
In a previous paper (STOCK, 1976b) I described, after a fortuitous find of a single specimen, an Ingolfiellid from a brackish well in Bonaire under the name of Ingolfiella (Gevgeliella) putealis. Financial support of the “Treub Maatschappij” (Utrecht) permitted me to revisit Bonaire in June 1976. At this occasion, a rich additional material of I. (G.) putealis could be collected in several brackish wells on the island; moreover, samples from a freshwater spring in Bonaire and from a marine interstitial habitat in Curaçao yielded Ingolfiellids as well, which proved to belong to undescribed species. This brings the total number of species known from the West Indies to three. Thanks are due to Mr. P. HOETJES and Mr. E. WESTINGA, for attempts to collect additional material from several localities in Curaçao, and Mr. J. HERRERA, Kralendijk, Bonaire, for hospitality on his estates Fontein and Bacuna.
