Abstract:

The genus Artemia, known as the brine shrimp, represents an important inhabitant of hypersaline lakes of Romania. Worldwide, the genus consists of six well-characterized bisexual species and several clonal lineages described with the binomen Artemia parthenogenetica. Despite its conspicuous appearance and numerous records in the literature, dating back to the eighteenth century, no positive identification can be provided for Artemia in Romania: the citations change from Artemia salina, to Artemia sp, Artemiaparthenogenetica, or parthenogenetic strains of Artemia. The present paper represents a review of previous records of the genus in Romania. Further studies are mandatory to clarify all taxonomic issues associated with this genus.

Keywords:

salina, parthenogenetica, biogeography, salt lakes, review, Romania.
