Abstract

New cockroaches of the family Blaberidae are described from Southern Sumatra: two new species of the genus Cyrtonotula Uvarov, 1939, C. secunda sp. nov. and C. tertia sp. nov.

Structures of the male genitalia of the genus Cyrtonotula are described for the first time. Hypothesis on the relationships of these new taxa as well as Morphna maculata Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1865, Rhabdoblatta sp. and Pseudophoraspis sp. based on 28S ribosomal DNA sequences is discussed.

A.V. Gorochov. 2015. Evolution and taxonomic significance of the copulatory apparatus in Ensifera (Orthoptera). Part 2: Male genitalia in Grylloidea. Zoosystematica Rossica, 24(1): 31–41.

Abstract

In the superfamily Grylloidea, the main trends in the evolution of the copulatory apparatus were probably connected with the transformation of simple membranous (hagloid) genitalia, characteristic of ancient groups of Ensifera, into a complicated organ with highly specialized sclerites for fixation of the female during copulation. This evolutionary process was probably accompanied by partial reduction and disappearance of paraproctal hooks or other external abdominal processes which may have been used by these ancient groups for female fixation. Sclerites in the male genitalia of Grylloidea appeared independently not less than four times: in Gryllotalpidae, Myrmecophilidae, Gryllidae and Mogoplistidae. This hypothesis, proposed by Gorochov in 1984, was one of the reasons for division of the recent Grylloidea into four families. Each of the first three families acquired sclerites in the male genitalia once, whereas Mogoplistidae possibly acquired them more than once: male genitalia of the tribe Mogoplistini are of the hagloid type, membranous; in most genera of Arachnocephalini (Mogoplistinae), in Pseudomogoplistes (Mogoplistinae) and in Malgasiinae, male genitalia have three types of sclerites which could have also appeared independently. Moreover, many sclerites of the male genitalia in Grylloidea are formed independently and have significant convergent similarity; this is why the nomenclature of male genital structures based partly on their function and position but not exclusively on their homology is simpler and much more suitable for descriptions and morphological investigations. This nomenclature is considered here.

A.V. Gorochov. 2015. New data on the genus Peracca (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Conocephalinae) in Malaysia, with description of two new species. Zoosystematica Rossica, 24(1): 42–47.

G.I. Guravskaya & A.P. Kassatkina. 2015. Specific features of the head region in euconodont animals. Zoosystematica Rossica, 24(1): 122–127.

Abstract

New data on morphology of the head region of euconodonts are discussed based on a study of its imprint from the Lower Carboniferous deposits of the Polar Urals (Russia); on its external ventral surface, the animal had an oval expansion of the head region, supposedly, a mouth food sac. A similar structure is also described in one of the imprints from Granton (Great Britain) exposed from internal surfaces. A hypothesis is put forward on the mechanism of functioning of the feeding apparatus in euconodonts which consists of hard S, M, and P tooth elements and H attaching skeletal elements as well as soft connective structures. The food sac probably served for filtering food particles from the water which was removed through special openings and for formation of the food bolus and transferring the latter into the alimentary canal (gut). These data gave to reasons for a new interpretation of feeding behaviour of euconodonts. It is suggested that the euconodont animals were filter feeders adapted to the near-bottom dwelling over substrates, where there was greatest concentration of small food items available for filtration.

M.V. Nazarkin & Y. Yabumoto. 2015. New fossils of Neogene pricklebacks (Actinopterygii: Stichaeidae) from East Asia. Zoosystematica Rossica, 24(1): 128–137.

Abstract

Two new findings of fossil pricklebacks (Pisces: Stichaeidae) from the Miocene deposits of Honshu Island (Japan) and Kamchatka Peninsula (Russia) are described. Both specimens are incomplete and cannot be identified below either family or subfamily level. Nevertheless, these findings suggest wide distribution of stichaeids in the North-Western Pacific during the Miocene. The specimen from the deep-sea Bessho Formation of Honshu represents the first fossil record of pricklebacks of the subfamily Lumpeninae.

The taxonomic significance of the spiral shell sculpture in the genus Hermania is discussed.

Abstract

Two genera of the American Phaneropterinae are discussed: Viadana Walker, 1869; Tomeophera Brunner-Wattenwyl, 1878. The former tribe Viadanini is considered as a subtribe (Viadanina Cadena-Castañeda, 2012, stat. nov.) including Viadana, Tomeophera and two other possible genera only; for the genus Anaulacomera Stål, 1873, a separate subtribe (Anaulacomerina Brunner-Warttenwyl, 1878, stat. nov.) is proposed. The genus Ctenophlebia Stål, 1874, gen. resurr. as well as V. transversa Walker, 1869, sp. resurr. and T. piracicabensis (Piza, 1971), sp. resurr. are restored from synonymy to Viadana, C. myrtifolia (Linnaeus, 1758) and T. modesta Brunner-Wattemwyl, 1891, respectively; two former genera are included in the genus Viadana as its subgenera Paraviadana Piza, 1980, stat. nov. and Proviadana Hebard, 1933, stat. nov.; and V. griffini (Giglio-Tos, 1897), comb. nov. is transferred to the latter genus from the genus Tomeophera. The following new taxa (43) from Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay, French Guiana and Guatemala are described: Arcuadana subgen. nov. (in the genus Viadana); V.

Abstract

The paper provides a brief conspectus of the system of morphological generic groups, elaborated earlier by the author basing on the total taxonomic revision of Palaearctic mealybugs. Here the system is complemented by the analysis of all 249 genera of the world fauna. Borders of two generic groups are reconsidered and two else groups (with mainly Oriental and Australasian genera) are included in the system. Main taxonomic characters of generic rank are discussed and illustrated.
