Remarks

The Korean specimens closely match the redescription provided by Savatenalinton and Martens (2009a), with the exception that the two small sub-marginal tubercles at approximately mid-height on the anterior part of the carapace (one on each valve) are very weakly developed or absent in the Korean material. In one specimen, there are very small tubercles on the carapace seen in dorsal view (marked with triangles on Figure 2H View Figure 2 ), which correspond to the areas where tubercules are present in specimens from other areas. Within the superfamily Cypridoidea   , some species have ornamentation present in some specimens while it is lacking in others. For example, Ilyocypris gibba ( Ramdohr, 1808)   , Ilyocypris decipiens Masi, 1905   , Prioncypris zenkeri (Chyzer and Toth in Chyzer, 1858)   , Heterocypris incongruens ( Ramdohr, 1808)   , and Heterocypris salina ( Brady, 1868)   typically have tubercles or denticles on the carapace, but such ornamentation can be lacking in some specimens/populations ( Meisch 2000). In the superfamily Cytheroidea   , the presence or absence of tubercles of Cyprideis torosa   is ecophenotypically induced (e.g. Keyser 2005), although it is not known what causes differences in surface ornamentation in the Cypridoidea   . As the appendages and other carapace features of the Korean specimens are identical to the redescription of B. tuberculata   from Thailand, we conclude that the Korean specimens represent a form of B. tuberculata   with very weakly developed or absent tubercules.

In Japan, both Strandesia tuberculata   and Strandesia decorata ( Sars, 1903)   have been reported ( Okubo 1990b), but later the Japanese specimens were considered to all be S. decorata ( Okubo, 2004)   . However, S. decorata   has a smooth carapace ( Sars 1903; Savatenalinton and Martens 2010), whereas the Japanese specimens are clearly striated. We consider that the Japanese and Korean specimens are conspecific, and specimens with weak or no tubercles attributed to S. decorata   by Okubo (1990b, 2000, 2004) are B. tuberculata   . The Thai specimens figured by Savatenalinton and Martens (2009a) also appear to have two weakly developed posterior tubercules in addition to the two anterior tubercles, similar to Strandesia spinulosa Bronshtein in Akatova, 1958   . Further investigation is required to determine whether these two species are synonyms.

Bradleytriebella tuberculata   is known from India ( Hartmann 1964 as S. tuberculata   ), Thailand ( Savatenalinton and Martens 2009a), Japan ( Okubo 1990b as S. tuberculata   and S. decorata   ; Okubo 2000 as S. tuberculata   and S. decorata   ; Okubo 2004 as S. decorata   ), and Taiwan ( Yu et al. 2009, as Bradleystrandesia tuberculata   , citing grey literature). From Japan and Thailand it is known from rice fields, whereas the Korean specimens were recovered from a streamside seep (locality 17) and an irrigation pond (locality 26).
