S.A. Podlipaev. 1999. Two new subspecies of trypanosomatids (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae), parasites of bugs (Heteroptera) from Cuba and the United States, with a discussion of trypanosomatids of water striders (Heteroptera: Gerridae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 8(1): 1–5.

Abstract

Leptomonas leptoglossi longus subsp. n. collected in Cuba from Leptoglossus phyllopus (Linnaeus) (Heteroptera: Coreidae) and Blastocrithidia gerridis bozemani subsp. n. collected in Montana (USA) from Gerris remigis Say (Heteroptera: Gerridae) are described.

O.V. Dolnik. 1999. Isospora schoenobaeni sp. n. (Protozoa: Eimeriidae) from the Sedge Warbler (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus). Zoosystematica Rossica, 8(1): 6.

Abstract

Faeces from Acrocephalus schoenobaenus caught on the Courish spit (Baltic Sea) were examined for coccidia. 9 of 15 birds (60%) had undescribed isosporan oocysts in their faeces. Sporulation took 72 hours at 20 °C. Sporulated oocysts of Isospora schoenobaeni sp. n. are spherial, 27.0 (24.3-29.0) μm, with oocyst wall ca. 1.5 μm thick; a polar granule is present, but no oocyst residuum or micropile occurred. Sporocysts are ovoid, 20.7 (18.2-22.4) x 12.8 (12.0-13.8) μm, with a nipple-like Stieda body and a medium substieda body. A sporocyst residuum was present in the from of numerous minute globules, and 4 sporozoites 6.7 x 4.6 μm in average were lying in the sporocysts. This is the first description of Isospora from the genus Acrocephalus.

Abstract

A.V. Rzhavsky & L.V. Shabad. 1999. A new species of scaleworm, Eunoe hydroidopapillata, collected off the eastern coast of Kamchatka (Polychaeta: Polynoidae: Harmothoinae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 8(1): 17–20.

Abstract

Eunoe hydroidopapillata sp. n. is described from two specimens collected off the eastern coast of Kamchatka from stony bottom at the depths 120 and 176 m. It differs from all known species in the unusual morphology of the elytra. These bear a soft, long, branched macropapilla (about 2 mm long) at the inner margin. A deep, oval or bean-shaped cavity with thin smooth bottom is present near the outer edge of elytra. The surface of elytra is covered with numerous spines and papillae of very various sizes and morphology.

A.P. Kasatkina & G.I. Buryi. 1999. The position of the phyla Chaetognatha and Euconodontophylea in the classification of Metazoa. Zoosystematica Rossica, 8(1): 21–26.

Abstract

The types of the fossil Chaetognatha Paucijaculum samamithion (Schram, 1973) found by F.R. Schram from Illinois Pennsylvanian in 1973 and euconodont imprints found by D.E.G. Briggs and others from Carboniferous Granton shrimp bed of Edinburgh are redescribed and reconstructed. Transverse muscular system and apatite composition is observed in different groups of vertebrates and cannot be a ground for undoubted insertion of euconodonts into Chordata. Many similar morphological features (head structure; presence of an intestine and gut diverticle; ventral ganglion; lateral fins flattened in dorso-ventral direction; grasping spines, and spermatophores) allow consideration of euconodonts as animals similar to Chaetognatha. However, such features as terminal position of mouth and anus, and the differences of the tooth apparatus structure give every reason to distinguish euconodonts as an independent phylum, Euconodontophylea. Unique fine structure of the muscular tissue and the structure of the intercellular contacts may indicate early separation of Chaetognatha from the common stem of Metazoa and commencement of original pathway of tissue perfection with preservation of the minimum organ amount. Apparently in Pre-Cambrian, before the skeletization, Chaetognatha and Euconodontophylea had a common ancestor. Both similar phyla belong to a single ancient independent branch, the superphylum Chaetodonta.

V.M. Loskot, L.V. Sokolov & V.A. Payevsky. 1999. The Subalpine Warbler, Sylvia cantillans (Pallas, 1764), new to the fauna of Russia, with a review of records of its northern vagrancy (Aves: Sylviidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 8(1): 191–199.

Abstract

The appearance of two females of the Subalpine Warbler in Russia (Biological Station of the Zoological Institute, Courish Spit) on May 28, 1992 and April 24, 1997 is described. Characteristic features are given which make it possible to distinguish individuals of this species from morphologically similar representatives of Ménétries’ Warbler, S.mystacea, Geographical variation of the Subalpine Warbler is described, and a map of breeding areas of its four subspecies is presented. A summary of 435 records of the species in northwestern Europe from 1951 to 1995 is given along with a map of the vast northern area of vagrancy. Birds were recorded over an eight-month period, from late March to the 2nd ten days of November. Sex and age composition of vagrants, range of frequency in various years and seasons were analyzed. The principial factors that caused the increase in the number of northern vagrants over the last 45 years include the increased number of observers and the general rise in mean annual temperature in the northern hemisphere. The “overshooting” of migrating individuals in spring anticyclonic conditions, the vagrancy of unsuccessful breeders, and the post-juvenile dispersal affect mainly the frequency of vargants in various years. There are no indications that the total population size has increased or that a northward expansion has occurred. Most vagrants presumably die of starvation or become victims of carnivores and birds of prey. The probability of nesting in places well beyond the normal breeding range is quite small even for single pairs.

A.V. Abramov. 1999. A taxonomic review of the genus Mustela (Mammalia, Carnivora). Zoosystematica Rossica, 8(2): 357–364.

Abstract

The genus Mustela includes 17 species. Comparative analysis of skull structure, dentition, bacular structure and external characteristics make it possible to divide the genus into 9 subgenera: Mustela, Gale, Putorius, Lutreola, Kolonokus, Pocockictis, Grammogale, Cabreragale and Cryptomustela subgen. n. The American mink is regarded as a representative of a separate genus Neovison.

Abstract

Relationships of Holarctic weasels (Mustela nivalis), based on cranial variables, sizes and proportions of body and tail, and coloration of summer pelage were analysed. It is possible to divide M. nivalis into three groups: large long-tailed weasels with “nivalis”-coloration, weasels of average size with a relatively long tail and “vulgaris”-coloration, and small short-tailed weasels with “nivalis”-coloration. The combination of all characters allows us to divide M. nivalis into 19 subspecies, including M. nivalis rossica subsp. n. (Eastern Europe). The Egyptian weasel (M. subpalmata) is regarded by us as a separate species. Large long-tailed weasels with coloration of “nivalis”-type (group numidica) are probably closest to the ancestral type of M. nivalis. Small weasels (group nivalis) appeared later, probably in the boreal regions of the Palaearctic. These weasels could have penetrated North America through Beringia. Another form (vulgaris-boccamela) was formed during the Late Pleistocene in the eastern Mediterranean from numidica. When weasels of this group occupied Western and Central Europe they displaced small nivalis to the north and east.
