Thanks to Bob McNuff of Sciento for developing culture methods for Hypsibius and raising them for 20 years!

* In 2018, the animals we study were identified as a new species, a close relative of H. dujardini (rather than H. dujardini itself) that was dubbed Hypsibius exemplaris—a Latin form of “exemplar” marking the by-then “wide use of the species as a laboratory model for various types of scientific studies” (Gąsiorek et al. 2018). Papers from before 2018 that referred to the Sciento-derived culture labeled H. dujardini are now recognized to have used H. exemplaris.
