Plio/Pleistocene Candonidae (Freshwater Ostracoda) from boreholes in The Nanning Area, Guangxi Province, Southern China

Su Deying and John W. Neale

Abstract. Six cored boreholes in Guangxi Province, southern China yielded a fauna of Cypridacea as well as diverse Limnocytheridae which will be the subject of a separate publication. This paper deals only with the Cypridacea. Four species of Candona were present of which three are new, one previously described species of Candoniella (a controversial genus which is probably a synonym of Candona) and one new species of Pontoniella.
