Abstract
Eight Brazilian lakes sampled by Francisco de Assis Esteves and Maria do Socorro R. Ibañez were examined for rotifers. Of the 57 species found, four were members of the genus Keratella. A literature search revealed about 15 species and subspecies of Keratella recorded from the Neotropics, 11 of these from Brazil. All known Neotropical Keratella rotifers are discussed and figured, with highlights on the endemics. Related species are discussed when confusion may arise with identifications. Taxonomic details of specific significance are listed in order of importance, and the state of expert consensus about this genus is given. Ecology and distribution of these rotifers are also discussed.
