The genus Teratocyclops Pleşa, 1981 is redefined, mainly characterized by the following characters of the female: the general habitus of the body, the 11-segmented antennule, the presence of the vestigial exopodite on the antenna, the segmentation of the swimming legs, the structure of the distal segment of the endopodite of leg P4 with 1 spine and 3 setae, and the proximal segment of leg 5 fused to the somite. The relationship to the closely related genera Metacyclops Kiefer, 1927, Apocyclops Lindberg, 1942, and Goniocyclops Kiefer, 1955 are discussed.
