Abstract

Rice-growing is only a few decades old in Italy's Po River delta. Yet, the new biotope has been colonized by numerous species of Crustacea Branchiopoda, including the conchostracan Limnadia lenticularis. This species, which up till now had been found in Italy only in the Piedmont area, is for the first time reported in the Emilia-Romagna region and its geographical range in northern Italy could be confirmed. Selected taxonomical traits observed under SEM and features essential for the identification of the species are reported and discussed. /// La culture du riz a été implantée dans la région du delta du fleuve Po il y a quelques dizaines d'années seulement. Le nouveau biotope a été colonisé par de nombreuses espèces de Crustacés Branchiopodes, y compris le Conchostracé Limnadia lenticularis. Cette espèce qui, en Italie, n'avait été trouvée que dans le Piémont, est signalée pour la première fois de l'Emilie-Romagne, et sa distribution est confirmée dans l'Italie du Nord. Les caractères taxonomiques de détermination de l'espèce ont été observés au MEB, décrits et discutés.
