Abstract: Study of historical collections in the Department of Palaeontology, The Natural History Museum, London (housed both in Micropalaeontology and Mollusca) has yielded further important Indian intertrappean Ostracoda. In this paper eight species are described and illustrated, one of them being new. The species are: Limnocythere sp., Cypridopsis palaichthonos Bajpai and Whatley, C. wynnei Whatley and Bajpai, C. alphospilotos sp. nov., ?Eucypris verruculosa Whatley, Bajpai and Srinivasan, Mongolianella cylindrica (Sowerby), M. hislopi (Jones) and ?Moenocypris hunteri (Jones). A lectotype is designated for Cypris (=Mongolianella) cylindrica from Sowerby's rediscovered syntypes, but although Jones's two species, Cypris (=Mongolianella) hislopi and C. (=?Moenocypris) hunteri, are also redescribed, it is not from type material which must, unfortunately, be presumed lost. © 2003 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
