other/additional criteria:
The EGCD was first assembled in February 2012. This data set derives from the assembly of 4 individual databases: 1) Niphargidae (authors: C. Fiser & M. Zagmajster); 2) Copepoda (authors: D. Galassi & F. Stoch); 3) Ostracoda (author: P. Marmonier); 4) Other crustacean groups (authors: D. Eme & F. Malard). Yet, full access to the EGCD is not possible but request to use individual databases can be addressed directly to the authors.

quality control protocols and comments:
Species names and distributions were checked by taxonomic experts (i.e. either the authors or collaborators, see acknowledgments) and spurious occurrences were excluded from the data set. For the sake of exhaustiveness, species formally recognized by experts as new to science but awaiting description were included in the data set.
