Estatheroporus, new genus, belongs to the Chydorinae close to Rak and Ephemeroporus, but differs from these two genera in having minor headpores located posteriorly to the median pore but laterally instead of medially. This characteristic is interesting, because it was hitherto believed to occur only in the Aloninae. The new species Estatheroporus gauthieri occurs in western Spain and in Sardinia, where it inhabits temporary pools and flooded ditches with weakly mineralized water and abundant aquatic vegetation.
