ABSTRACT A new subterranean amphipod species, Bogidiella (Medigidiella) arista, found in the mesopsammic ground waters of southern Anatolia, Turkey, is described, together with Bogidiella (Bogidiella) calicali Karaman, the latter being recorded for the first time in the eastern Mediterranean. A cladistic analysis of 37 Mediterranean species of the family Bogidiellidae is performed, using 4 species from the Canary Islands as an outgroup. Alternatively, 2 cladistic software packages, PAUP 3.1.1 and HENNIG86, are employed to calculate consensus trees of minimal length. The resulting trees show more or less identical robust clades, characterizing a central, a central-eastern, and an eastern Mediterranean group. Apart from this pattern of major geographical clusters, all species of the subgenus Medigidiella appear as a robust, monophyletic clade as well. This initial attempt to analyze the phylogeny of Mediterranean bogidiellids forms a useful basis for further, extended studies, using either different outgroup taxa or additional morphological data.
