The Ostracoda, together with the Copepoda and Cladocera, make up what is probably the most plentiful group of metazoan fauna in ponds, lakes, and, to a lesser extent, in streams. In spite of their numerical importance, no survey of ostracod species has been made for Iowa, although Gerhardt (1940) recorded Cypridopsis vidua and Cyprinotus pellucidus as occurring in Iowa.
