Description
Southern Ocean species records of tintinnid ciliates from literature reports. more

Species records of tintinnids from the Southern Ocean (locations below 40°S) reported in 56 publications published between 1800 and 2013 were compiled yielding about 2,000 species records (synonyms included) from about 400 locations. The 192 species reported can be parsed into two main groups: 32 endemic Southern Ocean species, known only from 40°S and further south, and a second group of 181 widespread species, forms with extensive geographic ranges extending into the Southern Ocean.
