Abstract
    In this study, we report on the existence of a new bisexual Artemia species, found in the high plateaus of Tibet (P.R. China). Different disciplines have been used to characterize this new population: biometrics of cysts and nauplii, morphometry of adults, cytogenetics, allozyme and DNA analyses and cross-breeding/fertility tests with known Artemia species. The results obtained justify that Artemia from Tibet is a new species with the proposed name Artemia tibetiana.
