[Two new species of harpacticoid copepods from Everglades National Park, Florida, Elaphoidella marjoryae sp. nov. and Elaphoidella fluviusherbae sp. nov., are described. Whereas E. marjoryae was collected from both surface waters and groundwater, E. fluviusherbae was found only in groundwater. The new species differ from congeners mainly in details of setation and spination of the swimming legs, and the shape and setation of the caudal rami. The ecology and geographical distribution of the genus Elaphoidella in North America are presented and discussed. The find of the cyclopoid copepod Diacyclops nearcticus Kiefer in the Everglades extends the known distribution of this North American species considerably southward. We present supplementary observations on the morphology of the female, including some obtained by scanning electron microscopy, and we describe the male. Geographical distribution and known habitats of the species are also presented and discussed.

Nel presente lavoro vengono descritte due nuove specie di copepodi arpacticoidi raccolti in Florida, Stati Uniti, Everglades National Park: Elaphoidella marjoryae sp. nov. e Elaphoidella fluviusherbae sp. nov. Mentre E. marjoryae é stata rinvenuta sia in acque superficiali che sotterranee, E. fluviusherbae é esclusiva di acque sotterranee. Le due nuove specie si differenziano dalle congeneri soprattutto per dettagli nell'ornamentazione dei pereiopodi, e per la forma e ornamentazione dei rami furcali. Nel presente lavoro, vengono presentate e discusse la distribuzione e l'ecologia del genere Elaphoidella in Nord America. Il ritrovamento del copepode ciclopoide Diacyclops nearcticus Kiefer nelle Everglades, estende considerevolmente verso sud la distribuzione di questa specie nordamericana. Vengono fornite osservazioni supplementari sulla morfologia della femmina, e la descrizione del maschio; parte delle descrizioni sono state ottenute utilizzando la microscopia elettronica a scansione. Un aggiornamento sulla distribuzione ed ecologia della specie conclude il lavoro., Two new species of harpacticoid copepods from Everglades National Park, Florida, Elaphoidella marjoryae sp. nov. and Elaphoidella fluviusherbae sp. nov., are described.
