Collections of ostracods from various habitats in and around Lake Inari, Finnish Lapland, provide the first record of these crustaceans from Finland north of the Arctic Circle. From a total of 35 sites visited, 14 species were collected, out of which four appeared to be new to Finland: Fabaeformiscandona lapponica, Pseudocandona pratensis, Eucypris pigra and Paralimnocythere relicta. Two major assemblage groups were recognised by clustering classification and multi-dimensional scaling ordination, one dominated by Cyclocypris ovum, the second by Candona candida. Taxonomic diversity of the most assemblages was of expected range based on the inventory of 53 freshwater species of Finland.
Key words: Subarctic Ostracoda / freshwater / Finland / faunal similarity / taxonomic diversity
