Key to genera and subgenera of the Bryocyclops  group

Common characteristics of the group are the following: a) 10- or 11-segmented antennules; b) rami of swimming legs 2-segmented but with additional oligomerization in some species; c) P5 completely fused with Pd5, with baseoendopodal seta laterally (a remnant of the proximal segment of P5 – coxa, basis and Endp), with 2 setae/spines sub-ventrally (a remnant of the Exp P5).
