Chirocephalus anatolicus and C. cupreus, two new fairy shrimp species belonging to the "bairdi" and "diaphanus" group (Brtek, 1995), respectively, are described and discussed in detail.

These new species were collected in Turkey from temporary pools on the Anatolian plateau. A number of morphological features (related to the first antenna, mandibles, first maxilla, and notopods P6-P8) are also illustrated and discussed in relation to their taxonomic and phylogenetic importance. The same holds for some peculiarities of the filtering and oral apparatus of these crustaceans. Si descrivono e discutono in modo approfondito due nuove specie di anostraci del genere Chirocephalus, Chirocephalus anatolicus sp. nov. e C. cupreus sp. nov., appartenenti rispettivamente ai gruppi "bairdi" e "diaphanus" (Brtek, 1995). Le due specie sono state rinvenute in Turchia in alcune pozze temporanee dell'altipiano Anatolico. Vengono anche illustrati e discussi alcuni particolari caratteri morfologici (relativi ad A1, mdd, mx1 e P6-P8) con lo scopo di verificarne l'eventuale valore tassonomico e filogenetico. Si discute anche il significato di alcune particolarità degli apparati filtratore e boccale di questi crostacei.
