ABSTRACT: The morphology of the Australasian Pleuroxus (Picripleuroxus) quasidenticulatus (Smirnov, 1996) (Cladocera: Anomopoda: Chydoridae) was studied, using material from Thailand, Vietnam and the Far East of Russia. The morphology of the thoracic limbs and the detailed morphology of males were studied for the first time. The taxonomic position, relationship and distribution of the species are discussed. The species is recorded for Russia for the first time and this is one of the few tropical cladoceran species penetrating this far North.
