Abstract

Metridia ferrarii sp. n. and M. pseudoasymmetrica sp. n. are described from females and males, both species collected in the South Atlantic and South-Eastern Pacific (Southern Ocean). Redescriptions are given for M. asymmetrica Brodsky, 1950, M. ornata Brodsky, 1950, M. princeps Giesbrecht, 1889 and M. macrura Sars, 1905.

M. ferrarii differs from M. ornata mostly in the longer caudal rami, longer hook-like spines at P2 Enp and the shape of the genital somite. Females of M. pseudoasymmetrica differ from those of the related species M. asymmetrica mainly in the shape and location of spermathecea (oval and overlapping in lateral view in M. psedoasymmetrica vs. round and not overlapping in M. asymmetrica) and in presence of distinct indentation of the genital somite (in lateral view); males of M. pseudoasymmetrica are very similar to those of M. asymmetrica, but differ in setation of left P5 and absence of short spinules at the second urosomal somite on the rigth and presence of short hairs at the fourth urosomal somite on the left.

A.F. Emeljanov. 2000. Larval characters and their ontogenetic development in Fulgoroiidea (Homoptera, Cicadina). Zoosystematica Rossica, 9(1): 101–121.

Abstract

Special larval characters and characters undergoing age-dependent development are considered: sensory pits, placs, spinulation on tibiae and tarsi, and wax-pore plates. For sensory pits, the pattern of arrangement and orientation in relation to the body axis, order of multiplication from instar to instar, and evolutionary trends are considered in various taxonomic groups, which were already investigated (Dictyopharidae, Delphacidae). A hypothetical groundplan of sensory pits arrangement is proposed and its deviation in various tagma and segments is presented. Hypotheses of the arrangement of placs and the sequence of their age tu age multiplication are discussed. Characteristics of the arrangement and development of spines on tibiae and tarsi are given. A hypothesis of reversible fusion of thick seta with its high socle is proposed. Macroevolutionary system of transformations of spine groups on tibiae and tarsi, which is open to diverse reorganization, including reversions (morpholocycle), is reviewed and demonstrated. Some characteristics of the arrangement of abdominal wax-pore plates and trends in their evolution are discovered. The importance of investigation of larval development in Fulgoroidea for taxonomic and phylogenetic purposes is stated.

Abstract

Nannocalanus elegans sp. n. from the Southeastern Pacific is described and illustrated. Females of this species differ from those of N. minor (Claus) in the shape of the body, outline of the general segment (in lateral view), and relative size of valve flap. The inner edge of B1 P5 of males and females is with 9-17 denticles (average 12-13), while with 13-26 denticles (averlage 18-20) in N. minor from the same locality. The inner edge of left B1 P5 is entirely serrated in males of N. elegans, but without denticles in the distal 15-20% of its length in N. minor. Sewell’s (1929) N. minor f. major and N. minor f. minor from the Indian Ocean are probably distinct species.

Abstract

According to P.P. Ivanov, body somites are formed in two ways, by segmentation of the germinal bands and by the activity of the growth zone. The growth zone appears posterior to the 4th postantennualar somite and divides the body into 2 parts, the group of anterior protosomites (anterior to the growth zone) and the group of posterior protosomites (posterior to the growth zone). The somites formed by the growth zone (eusomites) are disposed between the anterior and posterior groups of protosomites. The precise position of the growth zone may be confirmed by the study of concentrations of mitoses. Sometimes one may determine the position of the growth zone by the loss of at least one eusomite and its limbs behind the anterior protosomite and its limbs, or by a variability in the number of thoracic somites (as in Branchiopoda). The number of trunk somites may be reduced by halting early the segmentation of the hind part of the germinal bands and/or the activity of the growth zone. On the basis of the number of trunk somites, Maxillopoda are usually subdivided into 2 groups. The first group have 22 trunk somites including the telson: Copepoda, Ascothoracida, Mystacocarida, Skaracarida (Skara as an exception with 12 trunk somites), Facetotecta with no more than 10 trunk somites including the telson, and certain ostracodan groups (Myodocopida, Cylindroleberididae, Platycopida, Cytherellidae). The second group have only 4-7 trunk somites (including the telson): Branchiura, Cirripedia, and Podocopida among Ostracoda. Tantulocarida are very similar to Copepoda in the structure of adult males and tantulus larvae, differing only in secondary characters: fusion of 2 (not 1) somites with the cephalosome and fusion of urosomal somites posterior to genital one. The development of Mystacocarida (a representative of the first group) demonstrates that the 1th-3rd trunk somites are formed by the growth zone. The coincidence in the number of trunk somites among most members of the first group leads me to conclude that 3 eusomites are present in all taxa of that group. Development in Cirripedia and Branchiura demonstrates the absence of eusomites inasmuch as all the definitive somites appear simultaneously during the molt to the cypris larva. The incomplete homology of trunk somites together with other characters leads me to regard these 2 groups as the classes Ascothoraciodes and Halicyniodes in the recently proposed classification of the Crustacea (Starobogatov, 1988); these names have priority over other ones. This does not exclude the hypothesis of a common ancestor for both of the above-mentioned classes, nor for the Crustacea as a whole.

Abstract

Individual, sex, age, and seasonal variation of plumage colour was studied in four subspecies of the Himalayan Rubythroat, Luscinia pectoralis (Gould, 1837). The analysis was carried out on 253 bird skins. It is known that the postjuvenile moult in this species affects all or, less frequently, four or five lateral pairs of rectrices in most birds of both sexes. A trait combination that includes coloration of upperparts, upper wing coverts, throat spot, and rectrices was shown to be highly useful for diagnosing age, sex, and subspecies. In subspecies, five plumages are described in detail: juvenile, first winter, first summer, winter, and summer plumages of adults. Also, within-group and between-group variation of nine linear measurements in L. p. ballioni (n = 73) and L. p. tschebaiewi (n = 72) was studied. Canonical variate analysis suggests that these subspecies differ not just in generaln size (L. p. tschebaiewi is larger), but in wing shape as well: in L. p. ballioni the wing top is more pointed. Overall, the results of the multivariate analysis suggest that age-and-sex variation in these measurements within the two subspecies is 2.7 times lower than is the difference between them. Apparently three levels of within-species variation may be separated: (a) the closest subspecies are L. p. pectoralis and L. p. ballioni; (b) L. p. confusa is a well-differentiated subspecies; and (c) L. p. tschebaiewi is even more distinct and may be regarded as a megasubspecies sensu Amadon & Short (1976).
