Abstract

An account is given of the discovery of Tanymastix stagnalis (Linn.) (Crustacea; Branchiopoda; Anostraca) in Rahasane Turlough, Co. Galway: the first record of the species in the British Isles and the first freshwater member of the Anostraca to be recorded in Ireland. Various field observations on the distribution, population structure, life history and ecology of the species are recorded and discussed. The suggestion is made that the species has been introduced to Ireland as eggs--carried in mud by a migratory bird or a visiting wildfowler.
