Editor's comment The morphology, geographical distribution, and successful hybridization of the bodanicola-form with M. leuckarti s. str. (Einsle, 1968; Kiefer & Fryer 1978) indicate that "Mesocyclops bodanicola" is a pelagic ecotype rather than a separate subspecies or species. [according to Maria Holynska 2014] [details]
