About 33 species have been identified in 52 samples of podocopid Ostracoda collected in 24 inland marine caves on Bermuda. One genus (Aponesidea) and 10 species are described as new, 11 have been previously described, and 12 are reported in open nomenclature. At least 12 species are endemic to Bermuda, while another nine species are widely distributed in carbonate environments of the Caribbean-Antillean region. The majority are not restricted to the caves but occur also in sediments collected from Harrington Sound, Castle Harbour, North Lagoon, the South Shore, and other open- water localities of Bermuda. Four fresh- to brackish-water species belong to ecologically tolerant and geographically widely dispersed genera.-Authors
