Description:

Guides to the Identification of the Microinvertebrates of the Continental Waters of the World 9. The Proalidae comprises predominantly free-living epiphytic-epibenthic and psammobiontic species, inhabiting the littoral zone of fresh, thalassic and athalassic waters, and damp terrestrial habitats. Some species live epizoic on invertebrates and others are endoparasites of algae or ectoparasites of invertebrates.

A thorough revision of the Proalidae is actually hampered by the above mentioned lack of adequate descriptions and all but inexistent type material. Moreover, apart from a few exceptions, most of the species are rare and collected infrequently, and comparatively few specimens were available for this study. It is, however, clear that only a comprehensive application of scanning electron microscopy for the study of trophi structure, will allow a better specific identification and understanding of the inter-relationship of the species. This study is a first attempt at such a revision.
