This paper reports new distribution records of large branchiopods from Extremadura (southwestern Iberian Peninsula) investigated in 78 temporary freshwater ponds from October 2002 to August 2003. The occurrence of the anostracans, Chirocephalus diaphanus Desmarest, 1823, Branchinectella media (Schmankevitsch, 1873), Streptocephalus torvicornis (Waga, 1842), and Branchinella spinosa (H. Milne Edwards, 1840), and the spinicaudatan, Maghrebestheria maroccana Thiéry, 1988, all represent first records for Extremadura. The occurrence of the notostracan, Triops cancriformis mauritanicus (Ghigi, 1921), the anostracan, Branchipus cortesi Alonso & Jaume, 1991, and the spinicaudatan, Cyzicus grubei (Simon, 1886) in Extremadura, was also confirmed. These records increase the number of species of large branchiopods reported from Extremadura from three to eight.
