A. Ocaña, J. Picazo, F. Jiminez-Millan

Abstract


In samples collected in 1983/84 from 38 mineral-medicinal springs located throughout the province of Granada, and in 1985/86 from the Monachil River, Granada (Spain), twelve nematode species not previously recorded from Spain, and nine species not previously recorded from continental aquatic environments in Spain were studied. The most significant anatomical-morphological features and taxonomical characteristics of the species are illustrated and their occurrence related to the physico-chemical ecological components of the aquatic environment in which they were collected.
