Abstract

Examination of the solute composition and salinities of the lakes where Limnocythere sappaensis and L. staplini live reveals that solute composition and not salinity is the most critical factor that controls their occurrence. L. sappaensis lives in water that is enriched in Na-HCO3-CO3 and depleted in Ca. L. staplini lives in water that is enriched in various combinations of Na-Mg-Ca-SO4-Cl and is depleted in HCO3. These taxa may be used as reliable paleohydrochemical indicators. -from Author
