Abstract

The systematic position of two species of Lymnaeidae, Lymnaea vulnerata (Küster, 1862) and L. occulta (Jackiewicz, 1959), is discussed. On the basic of anatomical features, Lymnaea vulnerata is included in the subgenus Corvusiana Servain, 1881, the section Kuesterilymnaea sect. n. A new synonymy is established: Lymnaea terebra (Westerlund, 1884) = L. occulta (Jackiewicz, 1959), syn. n. (not syn. of L. vulnerata).

A.V. Gorochov. 2003. A new species of Mirollia Stеl from Philippines (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Phaneropterinae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 12(1): 28.

N.V. Vyshkvartzeva. 2003. A new bathypelagic copepod Pseudoamallothrix paralaminata sp. n. from the Arctic Basin and arguments for the transfer of Xanthocalanus soaresmoreirai Bjornberg, 1975 to the genus Pseudoamallothrix (Calanoida: Scolecitrichidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 12(1): 39–47.

Abstract

Pseudoamallothrix paralaminata sp. n. is described from the Arctic Basin. The new species is very close to P. laminata (Farran, 1926) and O. profunda (Brodsky, 1950), but clearly differs from these in several characters of male and female. Xanthocalanus soaresmoreirai Bjornberg, 1975 described from male has a number of morphological features never observed in Xanthocalanus (fam. Phaennidae) but typical of the genus Pseudoamallothrix (fam. Scolecitrichidae); in some characters, this species is close to P. ovata (Farran, 1905). X. soaresmoreiraiis transfered to the genus Pseudoamallothrix (comb. n.). A transformation of setae on apical and subapical segments of the male maxilliped as a synapomorphic character for the family Scolecitrichidae is recorded for the first time.

Abstract

Lectotypes are designated for 23 Kolenati’s species and varieties in the Museum of Natural History, Vienna. The synonymies of Rhabdocoris arcuata Kolenati, 1845 with Leptocorisa acuta (Thunberg, 1783) and of Eurydema armeniacum Kolenati, 1846 with E. fieberi Fieber, 1837 are restored. The following new synonymies are established: Liorhyssus hyalinus (Fabricius, 1794) = Corizus rubescens Kolenati, 1845; Sehirus luctuosus Mulsant & Rey, 1866, nomen protectum = Cydnus affinis var. ibericus Kolenati, 1846, nomen oblitum; Geotomus elongatus (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1840) = Cydnus caucasicus Kolenati, 1846 (G. ciliatitylus Signoret, 1881 is a good species, not synonymous with C. caucasicus); Eurygaster integriceps Puton, 1881, nomen protectum = E. hottentotta var. obliqua Kolenati, 1846, nomen oblitum.

I.M. Kerzhner & H. Brailovsky. 2003. On Hygia opaca (Uhler), H. lativentris (Motschulsky) and H. obscura (Dallas) (Heteroptera: Coreidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 12(1): 99–100.

Abstract

The following new synonymy is established: Hygia opaca (Uhler, 1860) = H. japonica Ahmad, 1969, syn. n., H. lativentris (Motschulsky, 1866) = H. touchei (Distant, 1901), syn. n. Hygia opaca opaca sensu Ahmad, 1969 is a misidentification of H. lativentris (Motschulsky, 1866), the latter species does not belong to the subgenus Microcolpura. The records of H. obscura (Dallas, 1852) from Korea and China are considered mistakes.

G.I. Buryi & A.P. Kasatkina. 2003. Rounded phosphatic structures (H elements) of euconodonts and their function (Euconodontophylea). Zoosystematica Rossica, 12(2): 157–161.

Abstract

Morphological analysis is done of the rounded structures in the head part of euconodont imprints from the Carboniferous deposits of Granton (Scotland), and the Ordovician Soom Shale (South Africa) and the rounded phosphatic structures present separately in the Upper Silurian and Upper Devonian deposits of Germany and Lower Triassic deposits of Primorsk Terr. (Russia). The identity of these structures in morphology and ontogenetic stages testifies that all of them belong to euconodonts. The rounded head structures of euconodonts, or H elements (Buryi & Kasatkina, 2001), appear to be analogous to the skeletal attaching plates of Chaetognatha. They were arranged in pairs in the anterior part of head in front of the tooth apparatus symmetrically to the sagittal axis of the euconodont and their surface was completely coated with a soft connective-muscular tissue like a cap. The H skeletal elements are rather a part of the mouth assemblage of euconodont animals along with the pharynx, P, M, and S elements of the tooth apparatus, and muscles (connective-muscular tissue). The presence of skeletal attaching plates (H elements) in euconodonts is responsible for the unique structure of the head part and of the whole animal (the euconodont mouth is arranged along the sagittal axis between the H elements). This supports recognition of these animals as a separate type, Euconodontophylea (Kasatkina & Buryi, 1999).

Taxonomic differences of the new taxon and closely related species from Africa, Asia and Americas are discussed.

Abstract

A new subgenus of the issid genus Bubastia Emeljanov, 1975 is erected – Capititudes subgen. n. (type species: Bubastia jatagana Dlabola, 1980) and subgeneric arrangement of the species is proposed. Hysterodus Dlabola, 1980 is placed in synonymy with Quadriva Ghauri, 1965 and Parahiracia Ôuchi, 1940 with Fortunia Distant, 1909 (Issidae). The following species names (Issidae) are placed in synonymy: Issus quadriguttatus Walker, 1851 with I. coleoptratus (Fabricius, 1781), Issus furtivus Walker, 1857 with I. praecedens Walker, 1857, Bubastia libanotica Dlabola, 1987 with B. ephialtes (Linnavuori, 1971), B. quadracuta Dlabola, 1980 with B. suturalis (Fieber, 1877), and Tshurtshurnella zebrina Dlabola, 1987 with T. trifasciata (Linnavuori, 1965). Hysteropterum maroccanum Lethierry, 1877 is transferred to the genus Bergevinium Gnezdilov, 2003, Mycterodus tunicatus Logvinenko, 1974 and M. allotrius Lukjanova, 1991 to the genus Quadriva Ghauri, 1965, Kervillea insulana (Dlabola, 1982) to the genus Rhissolepus Emeljanov, 1971, Prosonoma viridis Lallemand, 1942 to the genus Fortunia Distant, 1909, Colpoptera memnonia Fennah, 1955 to the genus Neocolpoptera Dozier, 1931 (Issidae), and Hysteropterum truncatellum Walker, 1851 to the genus Bilbilicallia Jacobi, 1928 (Nogodinidae). The genera Fortunia Distant, 1909, Scantinius Stеl, 1866, Pterygoma Melichar, 1903, Prosonoma Melichar, 1906, and Bardunia Stеl, 1863 are transferred to the tribe Parahiraciini Cheng & Yang, 1991 (Issidae). The genera Eupilis Walker, 1857, Tempsa Stеl, 1866, Gabaloeca Walker, 1870, Cheiloceps Uhler, 1895, and Ugoa Fennah, 1945 are transferred to the tribe Colpopterini Gnezdilov, 2003 (Issidae).
