Abstract Limnadia lenticularis, a well-known representative of the Conchostraca Spinicaudata in Europe, was generally accepted as a parthenogenetic species. During an intensive faunistic study of Austrian conchostracans, four of a total of 364 collected L. lenticularis specimens were males. This paper provides the collection localities, compares the sex ratios of the five conchostracan species found in Austria, and describes the general morphology of L. lenticularis males, focussing on SEM of the male claspers.
