  • In the early 2000s the first Triops australiensis came to Germany. But that was not the 'basic ' Triops australiensis australiensis, it was an species which is, according the 'producer', from Queesland. So the species was known as Triops australiensis (Queensland).
    Later the real 'basic' species came to Germany, Triops australiensis australiensis. Its also autogamous but its told to have an slightly increased male toll.

  • Triops australiensis (SPENCER & HALL 1895, lat. australiensis – australian) is the australian genus of Triops. It is spread all around in Australia, a subspecies can be found in Madagascar. In all articles about Triops australienes misunderstandings are to be cleared up and all information so far should be gathered.

    The program BIOCLIM predicts the total geographic distribution of species, based upon the biogeoclimatic characteristics common to the localities at which they are known to occur. Field studies in the Northern Territory have located the Shield Shrimp Triops australiensis at localities substantially north of its known and predicted geographic distribution.

    Shield Shrimp (Triops australiensis)

    The Shield Shrimp is a member of the order Notostraca (also referred to as notostracans), which are small crustaceans in the class Branchiopoda. Also commonly called Triops, tadpole shrimp or shield shrimp, these strange looking creatures have not changed their appearance since the Triassic period, over 220 million years ago. They can be considered as one of the oldest living animal species on earth.

    The shield shrimp belong to a group of crustaceans that are adapted to the arid outback conditions and found living in ephemeral pools, claypans and temporary waterholes. The eggs are drought resistant, blown about by the winds, then when the right conditions occur, such as heavy and flooding rain, they hatch and live through an accelerated life cycle1.

    The following images were taken at Palm Valley after a heavy period of rain swept through the region.

Until relatively recently many species of entomostracan crustaceans were thought to have widespread, even cosmopolitan distributions. Evidence now suggests that this is far less the case than thought. However, an exception appears to be provided by the crustaceans of episodically filled waterbodies. Typically these include Anostraca, Notostraca and Conchostraca. The paper considers the distribution of Triops australiensis (Branchiopoda: Notostraca) in Australia. There, it is a frequent inhabitant of episodically filled temporary waters. It is absent from such waters in northern Australia. A biogeoclimatic analysis using the program BIOCLIM indicates that this is because of the absence of suitable localities. BIOCLIM enables the preparation of maps which provide statistical predictions of climates suitable for the survival of a particular taxon. These predictions are based upon the known climate of localities where the taxon in question actually occurs. It is suggested that for the biota of shallow ephemeral waters (such as those typically inhabited by Anostraca, Conchostraca and Notostraca) biogeoclimatic analysis has a powerful predictive value.
