I.M. Kerzhner . 1993. Spelling of species-group names formed from personal names in the genitive case. Zoosystematica Rossica, 2(1): 1–4.

Abstract

The rules of Latin grammar for formation of the genitive case from personal names are discussed and compared with the past and current zoological and botanical practice. Changes of rules for formation of patronymics in various editions of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature are reviewed. Preservation of the original spelling is recommended as the best way to stabilize the spelling of patronymics.

Abstract

The following new taxa are established: Cribrolageninae subfam. n. (for Cribrolagena R.W. Jones, 1984, Lagenidae) in the order Lagenida; Daucinoididae fam. n. (for Daucinoides de Klasz & Rerat, 1962) and Chrysalogoniinae subfam. n. (for Chrysalogonium Schubert, 1908 and two other genera, Nodosariidae) in the order Nodosariida; Krebsininae subfam. n. (for Krebsina McCulloch, 1981, Polymorphinidae) in the order Polymorphinida; Turkmenellinae subfam. n. (for Turkmenella Bugrova, 1985) and Cribrolenticulininae subfam. n. (for Cribrolenticulina Haman, 1978 and Cribrorobulina Thalman, 1947) in the family Lenticulinidae, order Vaginulinida. The superfamily Pleurostomellacea is upgraded to suborder (Pleurostomellina) and transferred from Rotaliata to Nodosariata (Polymorphinida).

V.I. Mikhalevich. 1993. New higher taxa of the class Spirillinata (Foraminifera). Zoosystematica Rossica, 2(1): 9–11.

Abstract

The following new taxa are established: Lasiodiscida ordo n. (for the family Lasiodiscidae), Hottingerellida ordo n. and Hottingerellidae fam. n.

All are described on the basis of the presence of a primitive canal system. This new organismic integrative system testifies to the high specialization and evolutionary advancement of the taxa.

Two new species of Monhesterida are described from the Rift Valley: Diplolaimella pusilla from Shala Lake and Penzancia darcovi from Langano Lake. D. pusilla sp. n. can be distinguished from all species of the genus Diplolaimella by the shorter body and relatively long oesophagus. P. darcovi sp. n. differs from similar species by the shorter spicule and cephalic setae and by the structure of gubernaculum. Little-known species Mononchoides longicauda Rahm, 1928 from the Dinike River (Bale Prov.) and Achromadora micoletzkyi (Stefanski, 1915) from the Neri River (Gamo Gofa Prov.) are redescibed.

Abstract

Townesioninae, a new subfamily of Ichneumonidae, is established for two monotypic East Palaearctic genera: Townesion and Sachtlebenia. Townesion ussuriensis gen. et sp. n. is described. The new subfamily can be easily separated from other ichneumonids by the following autapomorphies: (1) the hind corner of metapleurum (bearing coxal foramen) projecting downward; owing to this, petiolar foramen far removed from the hind coxae and attached high on propodeum; (2) the hind part of tergite 4 abruptly curved downward and with backward directed spines on the hind margin; (3) tergites 5-7 reduced and retracted under apical part of tergite 4. Morphological peculiarites of the new subfamily and its relationships with other ichneumonids are discussed.

V.M. Loskot & E.P. Sokolov. 1993. Taxonomy of the mainland and insular Lanceolated Warblers, Locustella lanceolata (Temminck) (Aves: Sylviidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 2(1): 189–200.

Abstract

Intra- and intergroup variation of 11 linear and six plumage coloration characters in museum specimens of the Lanceolated Warbler from the mainland (96 specimens) and the Far Eastern islands (37 specimens) were examined. On the average, insular birds appeared to be larger, with more pointed wings than mainland ones. Canonical analisis of linear dimensions showed the geographycal variation to be six times as large as the sex-associated variation. Yellow coloration of the ventral side is not only typical of some young in nestling plumage but also of adults, indicating that plumage coloration in this species is polymorphic. Peculiarities of the spotted pattern and coloration of the under tail coverts made it possible to identify every insular and mainland specimen in all plumages: juvenile, and fresh and worn definitive. In view of this gap in size and colour of plumage along with the geographycal isolation, it is appropriate to recognize the insular subspecies Locustella lanceolata hendersonii (Cassin, 1858), stat. n.

Abstract

An examination of the Centroheliozoa fauna of the Volga basin is performed. The work was conducted in the Moscow, Yaroslavl, Samara and Astrakhan provinces. Thirteen species of Centroheliozoa were found and illustrated by scanning electron microscopy. Among them 8 species are usual for central Europe; Choanocystis rotundata is recorded in Europe for the first time. Two new species are described: Acanthocystis astrakhanensis (from the Volga outfall) and Pterocystis schulmani (from the Kuibyshev reservior). An emended diagnosis for Raphidocystis lemani is proposed.

Abstract

A growing number of colonial genera with shell are described in the literature within both epistylid and operculariid groups of Sessilida. An annotated list is presented, and a new genus Shellositon is added to shelled forms outside the classical taxon Loricata. Unlike all known genera of shelled non-loricate sessilids, Shellositon includes only solitary zooids with a large folded shell and small myoneme merged into the thickened shell basis. Its single species S. branchialis lives on Pacific amphipods.

Abstract

Diversibranchius nicolaji gen. et sp. n. is described from the Bay of Peter the Great (Sea of Japan). The species is characterized by simple capillary setae in both rami of parapodia and by 4 pairs of branchia of two types, leaflike and cirrifprm, both with folds of complex structure. Further, each of leaflike gills has two hillocks on the upper surface. Such branchial structure is described for the first time. The species is close to Diplocirrus Haase and D. cf. capensis in particular (Spies, 1975). The latter apparently belongs to a new genus.

For the genera Farrodes and Hagenulus s. l. a new tribe, Hagenulini tribus n., is established.

O.L. Kryzhanovskij. 1993. New or poorly known Platynini from SW China (Coleoptera: Carabidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 2(2): 297–305.

Abstract

Three supraspecific taxa of the tribe Platynini from SW China and adjacent areas are considered. The validity of the genus Andrewesius Jedlička, 1932, is confirmed, its specific composition determined and two new species described: A. fedorovi sp. n. from Yunnan and A. omeishanicus sp. n. from Sichuan. Polychaetagonum gen. n., type species P. plurisetosum sp. n., and two other new species belonging to the genus, P. chensicieni sp. n. and P. inexspectatus sp. n., all the three from the upper belt of Omeishan Mt. (Sichuan) are described; a key to the three species of the genus is provided. The genus Klapperichella Jedlička, 1955 is examined and K. melanoxantha sp. n. is described from Yunnan; it has a stricing dimorphism in coloration. Platynus setiporus Reitter, 1893, from “Buchara” is redescribed; the author believes it to belong to the E Asiatic genus Colpoides Jedlička, 1931, and its actual provenance to be from China.
