Family Sididae 

Diaphanosoma volzi Stingelin, 1905. Found in locality 1 (shallow swamp) and 16 (a roadside pond). According to Korovchinsky (1995), it is a littoral species, living in the bottom layer of a pond/lake, or among vegetation, but not directly in contact with the substrate. Widely distributed in tropical Asia. For a detailed description, see Korovchinsky (1995, 2004). First record for Sabah. 

Latonopsis australis Sars, 1888. Found in locality 7 (oxbow lake) and 9 (pond in peat swamp area). Bottomdwelling species. Since the species was described from Australia, it is presumed to be pantropical, but it is probably a species complex (Korovchinsky 2004). Rather common in tropical Asia (Korovchinsky 2004, 2013). First record for Sabah.
