ABSTRACT. Alona iheringi Sars, 1901 (Cladocera: Anomopoda: Chydoridae: Aloninae), being a separate Neotropical taxon from A. costata-group, is a junior homonym of Alona davidi var. iheringi Richard, 1897. We suggested Alona iheringula nom.nov. to replace the invalid Sars’ name. Differences between male of this species and other species of costata-group are described.

KEY WORDS: Cladocera, Anomopoda, Chydoridae, Aloninae, taxonomy, nomen novum, Neotropics, South America.
