G.N. Buzhinskaja. 2017. Descriptions of Pedinosoma curtum Reibisch from North-West Pacific and a late larva of Pedinosoma polaris sp. nov. from the Arctic Basin (Polychaeta: Phyllodocida: Lopadorhynchidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 26(1): 3–10.


A specimen of the pelagic polychaete Pedinosoma curtum Reibisch (Lopadorhynchidae) is described from the North-West Pacific. It differs from the Atlantic specimens of the species in longer aciculae, larger antennae as compared with palps and pigmentation of the dorsal cirri. A late larva of Pedinosoma рolaris sp. nov. is described from plankton of the Arctic Basin (depth 2000–1000 m). The distinctive characters of the new species are: podial lobes, aciculae and compound chaetae present on the tentacular segment, the absence of cirrophores of the tentacular and ventral podial cirri, the podial cirri arranged on the podial process, and a well-developed pygidium bearing anal cirri. An additional diagnosis of the genus Pedinosoma Reibisch is provided.

S.A. Podolyako, V.V. Fedorovich & K.V. Litvinov. 2017. Fishes of the Astrakhan Nature Reserve: an updated checklist with comments of recent records. Zoosystematica Rossica, 26(1): 182–195.


Since publication of the previous list (Litvinov & Podolyako, 2013), new data on species composition of fish fauna in the Astrakhan State Reserve have been obtained. As a result of revisions of the collected material and new records (e.g., the first finding of Khvalyn spined loach Cobitis amphilekta Vasil’eva, Vasil’ev, 2012), the list of fish species has been corrected and widened. At present, the list of fish species in the Reserve includes one species of Petromyzontidae and 60 species of Acipenseridae, Clupeidae, Cyprinidae, Cobitidae, Siluridae, Coregonidae, Salmonidae, Esocidae, Lotidae, Atherinidae, Gasterosteidae, Syngnathidae, Percidae, and Gobiidae. Identifications used in previous lists of fishes found in the Astrakhan reserve in 1936–2016 and brief information on biology and dates of latest records of each species are given.
