Although large branchiopods are undoubtedly an important part of the temporary water bodies, they remain the least studied group of macroinvertebrates inhabiting freshwaters. One of these species is the fairy shrimp Branchipus schaefferi. Its known occurrences across the central Europe are limited almost exclusively to temporary pools on military training grounds. Thus, the species is particularly threatened by changes in military activities, especially by the decline in the number of temporary pools caused by abandoning of training grounds followed by the secondary plant succession. In the present study, we performed genetic analyses of known populations of B. schaefferi in military training grounds of Poland using nuclear 18S ribosomal DNA sequences. No genetic diversity was observed among nine populations from four military grounds. Further, very close phylogeographical relationships among B. schaefferi from distant geographic areas (Poland, Italy and Algeria) were found (genetic distance of 0.001-0.002 substitutions per site).
