A.W. Jankowski. 1994. Vostonica gen. n. from psammonic copepods in the Pacific (Suctorida Vermigenea). Zoosystematica Rossica, 3(1): 1–4.

Abstract

The new genus and species Vostonica tenax was discovered in copepods collected in washings of the shoreline sand in Vostok biological station, near Nakhodka on the coast of the Sea of Japan. Vostonica is distinct genus of lower (rhabdophryid) vermigemmines with a unique disposition of tentacles on the widely expanded antesoma. Known genera of lower vermigemmines, without shell and retractile actinophore, are listed for comparison, with indication of type species and hosts.

T.A. Platonova & V.O. Mokievsky. 1994. Revision of marine nematodes of the family Ironidae (Nematoda: Enoplida). Zoosystematica Rossica, 3(1): 5–17.

Abstract

The family Ironidae comprising 8 marine and 1 freshwater genera is revised and keys to genera and species are presented. Diagnoses of all genera are specified and new combinations established in the most poorly defined genera – Dolicholaimus, Syringolaimus, Thalassironus and Trissonchulus. Short descriptions for most of the valid species are provided based on literature and original data. Five new (Dolicholaimus filipjevi, D. minor, Syringolaimus marisalbae and Ironella riemanni) or poorly known (D. major) species are described. A new diagnosis of Ironidae is presented instead of the one suggested by Andrassy.

O.G. Ovtshinnikova. 1994. Pleciidae as a separate family on the basis of the musculature of the male genitalia (Diptera). Zoosystematica Rossica, 3(1): 149–152.

Abstract

There is no general agreement among authors on whether to rank Pleciidae (Diptera) as a subfamily or a family. The description of the muscles of the male genitalia in Penthetria sp.

Comparative studies confirm Pleciidae to be a separate family (Rohdendorf, 1964, 1977: Krivosheina, Mamaev, 1967; Krivosheina, 1969, 1972, 1986; Nartshuk, 1990).

V.I. Mikhalevich. 1994. A new classification of the class Astrorhizata (Foraminifera). Zoosystematica Rossica, 3(2): 161–174.

Abstract

A new classification of Astrorhizata Saidova, 1981 is proposed. It is based mainly on the plan of the structure of the organism reflected in its test building, with consideration of the wall structure as of essential but secondary importance in classification. The class includes 5 orders (Astrorhizata, Dendrofryida, Saccamminida, Parathuramminida, and Hippocrepinida), 2 suborders, 7 superfamilies, 35 families, 38 subfamilies and 192 genera, among them families Normaninidae and Lacustrinellidae, subfamilies Amphifenestrellinae, Causiinae, Tholosininae, Daitroninae, Saccamminidinae, Amphicervicinae, Eoammosphaeroidinae, Hemithurammininae, Jaculellinae, and Saccorhininae are new. The subfamilies Vanhoeffenellinae, Astrorhizinae, Rhabdammininae, Dendrophryinae, Psammosphaerinae, Saccammininae, Hemisphaerammininae, Crithioninae, Hyperammininae, and Hippocrepininae undergo considerable revision, taxonomic position of 1 order, 6 families, 6 subfamilies and 28 genera and rank of some taxa was changed. The diagnoses and composition of all suprageneric taxa are given.

Abstract

A.V. Adrianov & V.V. Malakhov. 1994. The phylogeny and classification of the phylum Cephalorhyncha. Zoosystematica Rossica, 3(2): 181–201.

Abstract

The phylum Cephalorhyncha is a taxon including headproboscis worms: Priapulida, Loricifera, Kinorhyncha, Nematomorpha. The body of all Cephalorchyncha is divided into proboscis (= introvert) and trunk. The introvert is capable of invaginating into the trunk and is subdivided into the mouth cone, central part with sensory-locomotory scalids, and neck region. The central nervous system consists of nerve ring located in the introvert at the base of mouth cone, and ventral cord. The cephalorhynch worms of Middle Cambrian Burdgess Shale fauna are reviewed. Ancalagon and Fieldia are the most primitive cephalorhynchs. Their proboscis is not able to invaginate completely. Ancalagon and Fieldia could be included into a separate subphylum Protocephalorhyncha. Another subphylum, Eucephalorhyncha, is characterized by the introvert being able to invaginate into the trunk. Subphylum Eucephalorhyncha includes the classes Louisellida (MiddleCambrian only), Priapulida (with Middle Cambrian Ottoia and Selkirkia, Carboniferous Priapulites and several recent genera), Loricifera (considered to be neotenic group), Kinorhyncha, and Nematomorpha, the most advanced group, where only larvae retain the structure of headproboscis worm. Diagnoses of the phylum Cephalorhyncha, new subphyla Protocephalorhyncha and Eucephalorhyncha, and all classes and orders of extinct and extant cephalorhynchs are presented.

G.A. Stukalina. 1994. On the taxonomic position of the Silurian genus Dastaricrinus (Crinoidea). Zoosystematica Rossica, 3(2): 203–206.

Abstract

Following a taxonomic evaluation of its diagnostic characters, the genus Dastaricrinus is revised and its systematic position clarified. Morphogenetic changes of the decilobate ligamentary field of the articular facets of the stem columnals make dastaricrinuses sharply distinct among known pentamerate Silurian crinoids and allow them to be separated in a new family. The paper presents a description of the family Dastericrinidae fam. n. and four species: Dastaricrinus digitatus Stukalina, 1986 (type species of the genus), D. primitivus (Milicina, 1973), D. barbarus sp. n. and D. petaloideus sp. n.

Abstract

Six species of the family Acturidae are recorded from the western Antarctic, at depths more than 6000 m. All the six are new species belonging to six different genera, two of them new. Globarcturus angelikae was described by the authors earlier. Five new species (Rectarcturus tatianae, Neoarcturus caecus, Abyssarcturus averincevi, Cylindracturus leucophthalmus, and Antarcturus andriashevi) and the new genus Abysarcturus are described in this paper. All hadal arcturid species are probably blind; but two of them bear rudementary colourless eyes, and the others are without indication of eyes.

B.M. Kataev. 1994. On taxonomic position of Nesarpax labiatus (Erichson), endemic to the Cabo Verde Islands, with remarks on Acinopi genus-group (Coleoptera: Carabidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 3(2): 273–278.

Abstract

Examination of a male of Nesarpax labiatus (Erichs.), endemic to the Cabo Verde Islands, and comparison with specimens of various Palaearctic and African genera have shown that this species should be included in the Palaearctic genus Acinopus Dej. and that Nesarpax All. may be treated as one of its subgenera closest to Acinopus s. str. At the same time, Nesarpax may be considered a link between more plesiomorphic genera Nesarpalus Bed. and Nesacinopus Tschit. from Canaries and Madeira, on the one hand, and more apomorphic subgenera of Acinopus from Mediterranean Region, on the other hand. The distinguishing features of Dregus Motsch., Cratognathus Dej., and Pangus Dej., also probably related to Acinopus, are given.

Abstract

Epuraea (E.) dolosa sp. n. from Northern Europe (Perm’ Province of Russia and Norway) is described with comments on the systematic position and taxonomy of some European species of the subgenus Epuraea similar to the new one.
