The duration of occurrence of two morphological forms of Keratella cochlearis varied seasonally in Lake Donghu, a shallow eutrophic lake in China. The total lengths of both K cochlearis tecta and K cochlearis cochlearis were negatively correlated with the water temperature. Total length of K cochlearis tecta may also have been influenced by the degree of eutrophication or available food.
