lenticularis, a well known representative of the Conchostraca
Spinicaudata in Europe, was generally accepted as a parthenogenetic
species. During an intensive faunistic study of Austrian conchostracans,
out of a total of 364 collected L. lenticularis specimens,
four were males. This paper provides the collection localities, compares
the sex ratio of the five conchostracan species found in Austria and
describes the general morphology of L. lenticularis males,
focussing on SEM of the male claspers.
