Abstract


The genus Diaphanosoma has a wide distribution in the world, except in the Antarctic and New Zealand (Korovchinsky, 1992). It comprises 34 valid species and two subspecies (Kotov et al., 2013). Species of genus Diaphanosoma are characterized by being limnetic (Elías-Gutiérrez et al., 2008); nevertheless some species of the genus have been found in vegetation zones (Korovchisnky, 1992; Fuentes et al., 2012)
