Yu.A. Pesenko. 2004. The phylogeny and classification of the tribe Halictini, with special reference to the Halictus genus-group (Hymenoptera: Halictidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 13(1): 83–113.

Abstract

The monophyly of the cosmopolitan tribe Halictini, including over 2300 currently recognized species, is supported by at least a single manifested synapomorphy shared by all members of the tribe: metasomal tergum VII of the male is modified; this forms a transverse ridge giving a false apex beneath which the tergum is strongly reflexed to the morphological posterior margin. On the basis of the present phylogenetic analysis, the tribe Halictini is subdivided into five subtribes: Halictina (comprised of 7 genera: Echthralictus, Glossodialictus, Halictus, Homalictus, Patellapis, Seladonia, and Thrincohalictus), Sphecodina (4 genera: Eupetersia, Microsphecodes, Ptilocleptis, and Sphecodes), Thrinchostomina (2 genera: Thrinchostoma and Parathrincostoma), Caenohalictina (9 genera: Agapostemon, Caenohalictus, Dinagapostemon, Habralictus, Mexalictus, Paragapostemon, Pseudagapostemon, Rhinetula, and Ruizantheda), and Gastrohalictina (one large and diverse genus: Lasioglossum s. l.). The subtribe Halictina is a paraphyletic group; the remaining four tribes are strictly monophyletic (holophyletic).
The monophyly of the Halictus genus-group, comprising the genera Halictus and Seladonia, is supported by two distinct synapomorphies of the male genitalia: (1) dorsal gonostylus simple (not double), flattened, broad, narrowed proximally, and provided with a clump of very coarse bristles on the inner surface; (2) ventral gonostylus sclerotized, relatively thin and long, directed backward. Only generalized members of the group possess both the character states above. In derived members, the clump of bristles and the ventral gonostylus are often lost independently. The sister group of the Halictus genus-group is the genus Thrincohalictus. This is supported by the following synapomorphy found among the tribe Halictini only in Halictus, Seladonia, and Thrincohalictus: the ventral gonobasal rim in the male genitalia is forming a right posterolateral angle with a short projection directed laterally. Another feature characterizing these three genera is the presence (except in the parasitic subgenus Paraseladonia) of posterior bands of tomentum or dense and much plumose appressed hairs on the metasomal terga. However, this character is shared also with Patellapis subgenera Patellapis and Lomatalictus.
The following subgeneric classification of the genera Halictus and Seladonia is suggested. The genus Halictus includes 12 subgenera: Acalcaripes (2 species), Argalictus (8), Halictus s. str. (4), Hexataenites (11), Lampralictus (1), Monilapis (29), Nealictus (2), Odontalictus (2), Platyhalictus (14), Protohalictus (13), Ramalictus (2), and Tytthalictus (4). The genus Seladonia comprises 6 subgenera, including 2 new ones: Mucoreohalictus subg. n. (15), Pachyceble (22), Paraseladonia (1), Placidohalictus subg. n. (5), Seladonia s. str. (36), and Vestitohalictus (16). The subgenera of Halictus and Seladonia are keyed. The phylogenetic tree of the subgenera of Halictus and Seladonia is reconstructed with use of 46 morphological characters of adults. All other genera of the tribe Halictini were taken as outgroup. The genus Halictus is ascertained as a strictly monophyletic group based upon a single postulated synapomorphy: dorsal gonostylus with a triangular hair patch as a distal appendage on inner side. All the subgenera of this genus appear as strictly monophyletic groups, with the exception of Monilapis, which is a paraphyletic one in relation to Acalcaripes. The monophyly of the genus Seladonia is supported by three synapomorphies, including a novelty (unique synapomorphy): male dorsal gonostylus with a deep cleft. All the subgenera of this genus are strictly monophyletic with the exception of Placidohalictus, which is a paraphyletic one in relation to Vestitohalictus and Mucoreohalictus. A synonymical catalogue of species and species-group names in the genera Halictus and Seladonia, including 442 names, is provided as an appendix.

Abstract

Benthophilus durrelli and B. ragimovi, two new species of tadpole-gobies, are described. Both belong to an assemblage of Benthophilus species with clearly differentiated dermal ossifications. B. durrelli inhabits estuarine regions, deltas, lower reaches of rivers, and dam lakes in the Sea of Azov basin and is introduced in the Volga. It was hitherto not distinguished from the Azov tadpole-goby, B. stellatus, from which it differs in the posterior position of the second dorsal fin (behind vs. in front of the anal-fin origin), comparatively small (vs. considerable) difference in size of tubercles and granules, rectangular dermal fold with slightly undulated margin (vs. triangular, with clearly undulated margin), narrow (vs. wide) first semiring-like blotch behind the first dorsal fin, and 17-21, commonly 18-20 transverse rows of neuromasts on the flanks (vs. 20-25). B. ragimovi, a deepwater species, is only recorded at western coast of middle and south Caspian from Chechen’ Island to Astara. It differs from the closest congener, B. pinchuki, in the weak (vs. well-developed) depression on the head, absence of granules in the head depression, very small, densely-set granules located on whole upper head surface and anterior part of back, sometimes also on caudal peduncle (vs. enlarged granules located only along the lateral margins of the head depression), reduced first tubercles of the dorsal row (vs. anterior dorsal tubercles of the same size as the posterior ones).

E.P. Nartshuk. 2004. Vast ranges of some Oscinella species (Diptera: Chloropidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 13(1): 136.

Abstract

Ya.A. Red’kin & M.V. Konovalova. 2004. On the taxonomy of Yellow-browed Warbler, Phylloscopus inornatus sensu lato, based on the analysis of collection specimens (Aves: Sylviidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 13(1): 137–150.

Abstract

The comparative analysis was performed on 749 specimens of Yellow-browed Warbler forms (Phylloscopus inornatus inornatus, Ph. i. humei, Ph. i. mandellii). Morphometrical parameters as well as the patterns of plumage coloration have been estimated. All three forms steadily differ from each other in the coloration patterns, while the dimensional parameters are greatly overlapping. The birds with intermediate features of inornatus x humei were found out to be rather numerous in their spatial contact zone. Their total number turned to be less than the number of phenotypically “pure” humei, but more than that of inornatus, while according to literature the individuals with intermediate type of song have never been recorded so far. Hence, we suppose that the hybrid birds inherit the song of either one or another form. Therefore the conclusion about species status of inornatus and humei appears to be rather ungrounded because it was based only on the results of vocalization analysis without examining of collection. We suppose that the most correct way is to consider this monophyletic group (inornaushumeimandellii) as a single polytypic species having originally a circular range.

Abstract

At present, the collection of the Zoological Institute contains 29 type specimens of 23 species of pelagic nemerteans from the orders Pelagica and Cratenemertea. The types of four species (Pelagonemertes laticauda Korotkevitsch, 1955, P. oviporus Korotkevitsch, 1955, Obnemertes maximovi Korotkevitsch, 1960 and O. ramosa Korotkevitsch, 1960) have not been found. The lectotype for Mesarmaueria pellucida Korotkevitsch, 1955 is designated. The genus Nemertobus Chernyshev, 1992 is synonymized with Obnemertes Prudhoe, 1963. Nectonemertes compacta Korotkevitsch, 1964 and Pelagonemertes parvula Korotkevitsch, 1964 are transferred to Chuniella Brinkmann, 1917 and Balaenanemertes Bürger, 1909, respectively.

Abstract

Additional descriptions and illustrations of the females of Heteramalla sarsi Roe, 1975, Amallothrix aspinosa Roe, 1975 and Landrumius gigas (A. Scott, 1909), collected in the central and northwestern Pacific for the first time, are presented. The diagnostic significance of the setation of the maxillules, maxillae and maxillipeds in Scolecitrichidae, Tharybidae and Diaixidae is analyzed. The proportions of maxillule expressed as indices showing length or width of its different parts in relation to the width of the first inner lobe are proposed here as the main distinguishing characters separating Scolecitrichidae and Tharybidae, more informative than some diagnostic features of its setation. The relationships between the Bradfordian families and between sections of the family Scolecitrichidae are discussed, mainly on the basis of setation of the maxilla and maxilliped. The systematic positions of A. aspinosa and the genera Heteramalla, Puchinia, Cenognatha, Plesioscolecithrix, Rythabis and Parkius are discussed. A detailed comparative analysis of characters of the genus Heteramalla is provided. Heteramalla and Puchinia belong to the group of early offshoots of the family Scolecitrichidae, not to the central core, where they were placed by Ohtsuka with coauthors (2003) and by Boxshall & Hulsey (2004). Rythabis has the setation of maxillule closer to the ancestral type common to all Bradfordian families, but the proportions of maxillule typical to Tharybidae. Since the indices of maxillule do not overlap in Scolecitrichidae and Tharybidae, and the maxillule and other mouthparts show different evolutionary trends of specialization, Rythabis is considered as a member of the Tharybidae, where it was placed by Schulz (in Schulz & Beckmann, 1995). Parkius has the proportions of the maxillule intermediate between those in Scolecitrichidae and Tharybidae and unique apomorphic features recorded earlier by Ferrari & Markhaseva (1996). These unique progressive features of Parkius can be a result of important biological transformations, compared with the other Bradfordian families; therefore the status of the separate family Parkiidae, fam. dist., is restored. The male considered as Racovitzanus sp. (Grice & Hulsemann, 1967) actually belongs to Parkius. Swimming legs 5 of this male are peculiar, fitting those neither of Scolecitrichidae nor of Tharybidae. Their structure shows a separate evolutionary trend and also justifies the family status of Parkiidae.

Abstract

Eight genera belonging to a generic group with the modified male genitalia (similar to those of the Indo-Malayan genus Truljalia) are characterized. They are distributed only in Africa south of Sahara. Four new genera, 13 new species, and unknown male of one species are described; some other African genera and species are considered (i.e., type material is revised, a lectotype for Dolichogryllus camerunensis Bol. is designated, and information on the systematic position of some forms is given). The distribution of the Podoscirtini genera is considered; 7-8 regions with almost endemic generic composition are outlined. Preliminary hypotheses for the origin of the Podoscirtini faunas of these regions are proposed. New replacement names (Valiatrella, nom. n. and Stenotrella, nom. n.) are proposed for the genera Valia Gorochov, 1985 (non Alexeev, 1979) and Stenogryllodes Chopard, 1952 (non Chopard, 1936), respectively.
