The species Scottia pseudobrowniana Kempf, 1971, a genus and species reported new for the Turkish non-marine ostracod fauna, was found in a limnocrene spring in Bolu, Turkey. Ecological data support earlier indications that this species is a crenobiont that prefers cool springs or waters connected with such springs. Results based on twenty months of sampling between February 2000 and September 2001 suggest that the rare occurrence of S. pseudobrowniana might be closely related to its phenology, and to anthropogenic factors as well. Indeed, a decision by the city's Environmental Protection Foundation to cover the spring with a concrete structure to provide water for public facilities near the spring has caused a complete loss of the spring and all of its living fauna, including Scottia pseudobrowniana.

L'espèce Scottia pseudobrowniana Kempf, 1971, signalée comme espèce et genre nouveaux pour la faune des ostracodes non marins de Turquie, a été découverte dans une source limnocrène à Bolu, Turquie. Les données écologiques confirment les observations antérieures, à savoir que cette espèce est un crénobionte qui préfère les sources, ou les eaux froides en relation avec ces sources. Les résultats obtenus sur vingt mois d'échantillonnage entre février 2000 et septembre 2001 suggèrent que la présence rare de S. pseudobrowniana pourrait être étroitement liée à sa phénologie ainsi qu'aux facteurs anthropiques. Ainsi, la décision de la Fondation pour la Protection de l'Environnement de recouvrir la source d'une structure en béton pour fournir de l'eau pour des équipements publics près de la source a entraîné une perte complète de celle-ci et de toute sa faune vivante, y compris Scottia pseudobrowniana.
