Tanycypris centa Chang, Lee and Smith, 2012  


Previously, this species was reported from one locality in the lower reaches of the Hyeongsan River on the south-east of the Korean Peninsula ( Chang et al. 2012). The specimens found on Jeju Island were collected from a pond, and indicate that the species may be relatively widespread in southern Korea. It has also been collected from the Munich Botanical Gardens, Germany (Renate Matzke-Karasz pers. comm.), where it is probably an alien species (see above under Tanycypris alfonsi   ). This species was recovered from only one locality (26), an irrigation pond.
