- The Fairy Shrimp genus Branchinella Sayce, 1903 (Crustacea: Anostraca: Thamnocephalidae) in South Australia and the Northern Territory, including descriptions of three new species. Trans. R. Soc. S. Aust. 127(1), 53-68, 31 May, 2003. The genus Branchinella is represented by nine species in each of South Australia and the Northern Territory, 13 species in all and with just one species endemic in each. The most widespread and common species is B. australiensis, while B. dubia, B. latzi, B. lyrifera and B. pinnata are locally common. Two of the new species (B. insularis n. sp. and B. tyleri n. sp.) occur in limited areas and the third (B. lamellata n. sp.) is a member of a group of arid-zone species. Despite a great increase in the number of species reported from both jurisdictions, large areas are still inadequately surveyed.
