Abstract

Phaeocoris is resurrected from synonymy with Dymantis. Lodosia is synonymized with Phaeocoris, and L. gonocoxa, with Ph. ellipticus. The structure of the male and female genitalia of Phaeocoris shows that this genus does not belong to Sciocorini, but also its placement in Myrocheini is problematic.

Abstract

The data on the extinct migratory Black Sea lamprey are reviewed. The records from the Prut (Danube drainage) apparently refer to Eudontomyzon mariae while those from the Dnieper and Don refer to a larger species, which is apparently extinct. No museum material is known to survive, and its identity cannot be resolved. Coregonus ludoga Polyakov, 1874 is an unnecessary replacement name for C. widegreni Malmgren, 1863. Coregonus lutokka nom. n. is proposed here as a new replacement name for C. ludoga Berg, 1916, the ludoga whitefish of lakes Ladoga and Onega. Coregonus maraenoides Polyakov, 1874 is the valid name of the Peipus whitefish. Coregonus ladogae Pravdin, Golubev & Belyaeva, 1938 is the valid name of the ripus of Lake Ladoga.

Abstract

Pontella aculeata sp. n. from the eastern part of the Indian Ocean is described and illustrated. It is closely related to P. novaezelandiae Farran, 1929.

P. novaezelandiae has there one long process and short forked projection at its base. The posterior process on dorsal side of the genital somite in the female of the new species is short, with rounded edges, in P. novaezelandiae long and sharp. P. aculeata female has right P5 Re with 2 processes in the distal part of the inner edge. P. novaezelandiae has one only. P. aculeata is smaller than P. novaezelandiae.
