In this book , the taxis and phylogeny of Cypridacea and Darwinulidacea were studied and a phylogenetic diagram was platted was plotted. It is shown , that the content of the past classification was really supplemented. The muscle scars of the type-genus of each family included in these two superfamilies are diagramed and explained. The living environment of non-marine ostracod fauna and the living habit of some important genera and species are generally explained. Based on the regularity of distribution in the strata the fossil ostracod assemblages were erected by the Chinese ostracodologists. After a general discussion and analysis, a new revised sequence of non-marine ostracod assemblages is established in this book. Thus the subdivision, correlation and classification of strata, depend upon ostracods, are rather reasonable and more scientific.

In this book 127 genera and 1863 species including in the superfamilies Cypridacea and Darwinulidacea were revised and redescribed. Among them, there are 124 genera respectively belonging to 17 families (6 are new ) and 13 subfamilies (2 are new ) of superfamily Cypridacea; 1 of the other 3 genera belonging to family Darwinulidae and 2 belonging to Panxianidae of superfamily Darwinulidacea.
