Abstract

Six species of sea anemones are found in material from the Commander Islands. A new genus and species of the family Isanthidae (Paraisanthus tamarae gen. et sp. n.) is described. Cnidopus Carlgren, 1934 (Actiniidae) is treated as a valid genus. Catch-tentacles previously known only in some acontiarian anemones are found in Cnidopus. The conspecificity of C. japonicus (Verrill, 1899) and C. ritteri (Torrey, 1902) is confirmed.

Abstract

Disco triangularis sp. n. (Discoidae) is described from females and Onchocalanus cristogerens sp. n. (Phaennidae) from a male, both species collected in the central Arctic Basin. Scolecithricella laminata (Farran, 1926) (Scolecitrichidae) is recorded for the first time from the central Arctic Basin. Disco triangularis sp. n. is clearly distinguished from the related discolds by its larger size, presence of 5 setae at P2 Enp2 and 5 setae at P3-P4 Enp3, by Md Gn with 2 teeth, and 2-segmented P5 in females. Onchocalanus cristogerens sp. n. is similar to O. cristatus (Wolfended, 1904) and O. subcristatus (Wolfenden, 1906) in the presence of a crest, while in other representatives of the genus the crest is lacking. In P5 longer than urosome the species is similar to O. hirtipes Sars, 1905 and O. magnus (Wolfenden, 1906), differing from the remaining Onchocalanus males with P5 as long as urosome.

O.S. Voskoboinikova. 1998. The osteological development of four species of the Antarctic dragonfish (Pisces: Notothenioidei: Bathydraconidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 7(1): 193–204.

Abstract

The osteological development of four species of the family Bathydraconidae: Psilodraco dreviceps (Gymnodraconinae), Prionodraco evansii, Parachaenichthys georgianus and P. charcoti (Bathydraconinae) has been examined with respect to the sequence of appearance of bones, morphogenesis and rate of ossification. Some considerable differences between Prionodraco and Parachaenichthys in the sequence of appearance of the ethmoidal bones and in morphogenesis of the neurocranium, splanchnocranium and pectoral fin are found. The rate of ossification in the bathydraconids in general is intermediate between those of the notothenids and channichthyids. Comparison of the rates of differentiation of skeleton in these three families of the notothenioids suggests the paedomorph character of evolution of the suborder Notothenioidei as a whole.

Bulatia aksyirica Gabunia & Shevyreva, 1994 (Mixodontia incertae sedis) from the middle Eocene of Kaszakhstan is considered as a nomen dubium and reffered to Mammalia incertae ordinis. Anatolmylus rozhdestvenskii Averianov, 1994 (Mimotonidae) and Romanolagus hekkeri Shevyreva, 1995 (Palaeolagidae), both from the early Eocene Andarak 2 locality in Kirghizia, are considered as junior subjective synonyms of Anatolimys rozhdestvenskii Shevyreva, 1994 (Eurymylidae) described from the same locality; this species actually belongs to Mimotonidae. Accordingly, Anatolimys Shevyreva, 1994 = Anatolmylus Averianov, 1994 = Romanolagus Shevyreva, 1995 (new synonymy). Annalagus margarita Shevyreva, 1996 (Palaeolagidae) is considered as a nomen dubium and reffered to the family “Mytonolagidae”. Dituberolagus venustus Tong, 1997 (?Leporidae) from the middle Eocene of China is provisionally reffered to Mimotonidae.

Abstract

The order Ephemeroptera is divided into Permoplectoptera and Euplectoptera; Euplectoptera are divided into two holophyletic taxa-Posteritorna and Anteritorna; Anteritorna are divided into Tridentiseta (which is possibly a paraphyletic group) and a holophyletic taxon Bidentiseta; Bidentiseta are divided into Branchitergaliae and Furcatergaliae. Characters of these taxa are described and discussed, together with characters of higher taxa in Ephemeroptera suggested by other authors.

Abstract

Blepharidopterus diaphanus (Kirschbaum, 1856) is proposed as the senior synonym of B. ulmi (Knight, 1927) and as a result is now recognized as a naturally Holarctic species.

Abstract

The Holarctic subgenus Pityopsallus E. Wagn. (genus Psallus Fieb.) is represented by 9 species in the Asian boreal forest zone. 3 new species are described: P. yasunagai sp. n. is related to the P. luridus-group, P. nipponicus sp. n. is close to P. ermolenkoi Kerzh. (both new species from Hokkaido, Japan) and P. sachaensis sp. n. from East Siberia (Central Yakutia) replaces the European P. picea Reut. in the East Palaearctic P. kimi Jos., stat. n. is a senior synonym of P. salicicola Schwartz & Kelton and recorded for the first time from East Siberia and Kamchatka. The Siberian P. laticeps Reut. is a good species closely related to the European P. pinicola Reut. a key to species of the subgenus Pityopsallus, except the little-known European P. lapponicus Reut. and the Chinese P. hani Zheng & Li, is given.

Abstract

Informator on the sex and locality of holotypes of Lygus [now Alloeotomus] simplus Uhl. and Dicyphus [now Onomaus] lautus Uhl. is given. The conflict between designated neotype and rediscovered original type material of Calocoris [now Adelphocoris] variabilis Uhl. is discussed.

Abstract

Three new species of the Othius crassus subgroup are described from the Caucasus: O. hebes sp. n. and its sister species O. fastigatus sp. n., both closely related to O. korgei Coiffait, and O. ushakovi sp. n., the sister species of O. ponticus Coiffait. A recent key to the Western Palaearctic species of Othius is modified to accommodate the new species. Their phylogenetic affiliations are briefly discussed.

Abstract

Sphaerobothris (s. str.) aghababiani sp. n. is described from environs of Meghri, Arax valley, Armenia and compared with S. globicollis (Reitter) from Central Asia. This is the first Sphaerobothris species from Transcaucasia and third one in Palaearctic. S. aghababiani sp. n., like other Sphaerobothris species, develops on Ephedra.

Abstract

Examination of the lectotype of Depressaria caucasica Christoph, 1877 shows that this taxon is merely an alpine form of D. pastinacella Dup.

A.O. Averianov. 1998. Taxonomic notes on some Late Cenozoic and Recent lagomorphs (Mammalia). Zoosystematica Rossica, 7(2): 323–325.

Abstract

Ochotona dauurica (Pallas, 1776) is the correct spelling instead of the commonly used “daurica”. Hypolagus schreuderae Teilhard de Chardin, 1940 = “Lepusyoungi Bohlin, 1942, syn. n. Ochotona birgerbohlini nom. n. is proposed for O. lagreli minor Bohlin, 1942, a junior homonym of O. minor Link, 1795 [= O. dauurica (Pallas, 1776)]. The spellings of Hypolagus schreuderi Teilhard de Chardin, 1940, Megalagus dawsoni Black, 1961, Cuyamalagus dawsoni Hutchison in Hutchison & Lindsay, 1974, and Ochotona gromovi Erbajeva in Basarov et al., 1976 are corrected into H. schreuderae, M. dawsonae, C. dawsonae, and O. gromovorum respectively. Megalagus primtivus (Schlaikjer, 1935) = M. dawsonae Black, 1961, syn. n. Gripholagomys Green, 1972 = Cuyamalagus Hutchion in Hutchion & Lindsay, 1974, syn. n., resulting in Gripholagomus dawsonae (Hutchion, 1974), comb. n. Prolagomys sibiricus Erbajeva, 1975 is not a nomen nudum and available as P. sibiricus Erbajeva in Basarov et al., 1976, but both the generic and specific names are junior synonyms of Ochotonoides Teihard de Chardin & Young, 1931 and O. complicidens (Boule & Teilhard de Chardin, 1928) respectively. The name Microlagomys aktogaiensis Savinov in Kozhamkulova, Savinov & Suslov, 1981 [= Pseudoochotona prima Kozhamkulova & Orlovskaya, 1971, nomen nudum] is unavailable; the correct name of this taxon is Ochotona pussila aktogaiensis (Kozhamkulova & Savinov, 1984). Pseudobellatona V. Topachevskii, Nesin & I. Topachevskii, 1993 and P. relicta V. Topachevskii, Nesin & I. Topachevskii, 1993 are nomina dubia; the nominal taxon is reffered to Lagomorpha incertae sedis.
