Copepoda, Ostracoda and Branchiopoda (Cladocera (Diplostrasca), Conchostraca, Notostraca and Anostraca) are the most abundant among microcrustacean groups frequently found in freshwater/inland systems such as rivers, lakes, reservoirs, phytothelmas, and wetlands (Thorp and Covich, 2001)
Diapause, quiescence, hatching requirements: what we can learn from large freshwater branchiopods (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: Anostraca, Notostraca, Conchostraca).
Some taxa that are commonly sampled in these temporary environments include Anostraca, Notostraca, Conchostraca, Cladocera, Ostracoda, Corixidae, Notonectidae, Dytiscidae, and Hydrophilidae (Hutchinson 1932; Rzoska 1961; Weir 1969; Williams 1985; Seaman et al.

Their planktonic fish belong to many genera of branchiopods (of the orders Anostraca, Conchostraca, and Notostraca) and copepods.
While collecting amphibians, particularly in ephemeral and seasonal pools, I commonly encountered representatives of the three orders of branchiopods (Conchostraca, Notostraca, and Anostraca).
