Abstract

A new species of bioluminescent ostracode, Vargula annecohenae, from Belize is described on the basis of morphology and mating displays. At night, male V. annecohenae ostracodes produce an elaborate species-specific display in order to attract females. These displays occur as a series of rapid flashes in an upward direction, above shallow grassbeds.
