Abstract. Living Cyprideis torosa (Jones, 1850) was found in Germany along the North Sea coast and on some islands, within the Baltic Sea and in coastal waters near the Baltic Sea, but also in some inland natural and anthropogenic saline waters. The natural inland waters were probably colonized by birds because this species was found only in permanent saline shallow lakes that provide resting places for migrating birds. Information on the fossil and Recent record and on the biology of C. torosa and its accompanying ostracod fauna is discussed.
