The vertical distribution of Ostracoda from two digs from the beach of the Satonda Crater Lake reflects the Holocene history of its water chemistry. In the lowermost parts, monospecific associations dominate in fresh to brackish waters, whereas there is a higher species diversity and eveness of several marine species, typical for warm and shallow waters, in the middle parts of the sections. In the upper parts of the digs and in the alkaline waters of today's crater lake, the same cypridid species as in the lowermost horizons dominates, indicating the reestablishment of a more stressful environment compared to the marine layers in between.
