V.G. Gagarin & Vu Thanh Nguyen. 2006. Re-classification of Neodiplogasteridae with notes on the genus Glauxinema Allgen, 1947 and description of G. aquaticum sp. n. from Vietnam (Nematoda). Zoosystematica Rossica, 15(1): 1–6.

Abstract

The family Neodiplogasteridae is subdivided into Neodiplogasterinae (= Glauxinematinae) and Mononchoidinae based on the armament of stegostom in the left subventral position. The genera Glauxinema Allgen, 1947, Paraeudiplogaster Paramonov, 1952, Diplenteron Andrássy, 1964 and Glauxinemella Gagarin, 1998 and species Mononchoides adjunctus Massey, 1966, M. andersoni Ebsary, 1986 and Glauxinema aphodii (Bovien, 1937) are restored from synonymy. A key to the genera of Mononchoidinae, emended diagnosis of Glauxinema, a list of species of this genus and a key to species are given. G. aquaticum sp. n. from the Day River of Vietnam is described and illustrated.

G.N. Buzhinskaja. 2006. On the morphology of the genus Flota Hartman, 1967 and corroboration of family status of Flotidae Buzhinskaja, 1996 (Polychaeta). Zoosystematica Rossica, 15(1): 7–17.

Abstract

Comparative description of the genus Flota is given, including additional data on the anatomical structure of the digestive tract, female gonad, ventral nervous cord, as well as refining of external morphology. The organization of Flota is compared with that of representatives of other families of polychaetes. The arguments for family status of Flotidae are based on features of structure, differentiating Flota from all other polychaetes (tri-ramous non-grooved palps, enormous ventro-lateral pharyngeal organ of peculiar structure and ventral nervous cord with numerous ganglia on connectives). Apart from being differentiated by these characters Flota differs from Flabelligeridae and close families in the structure of the head, digestive tract, parapodia and pygidium, presence of buccal tentacles and surface arrangement of the ventral nervous cord. Discovery of additional specimens of this genus and other representatives of Flotidae, further study of their anatomy and also investigation of the larval development will allow establishing the place of this family among polychaetes.

Abstract

Chloropidae of Meigen's collection in Paris (54 species) are examined, including 35 species described by Meigen (1830, 1838). New synonymy is established: Oscinella nigerrima (Macquart, 1835) = Chlorops nigritus Meigen, 1838: Lasiambiapalposa (Fallén, 1820) = Chlorops ater Meigen, 1838; Rhopalopterum anthracinum (Meigen, 1830) = Chlorops glaberrimus Meigen, 1838; Oscinella vindicata (Meigen, 1830) = O. horiensis Collin 1946; Meromyza variegata Meigen, 1830 = M. lidiae Nartshuk, 1992; M. femorata Macquart, 1835 = M. laeta Meigen, 1838. Chlorops lucida Meigen, 1838 and C. vindicata (Meigen, 1830) are restored from synonymy and considered to be good species Thaumatomyia lucida (Meigen) and Oscinella vindicata (Meigen), respectively. Lectotypes are designated for following Meigen's species: Eurina lurida, Chlorops calceatus, C hypostigma, C. geminatus, C. cingulatus, C. pygmaeus, C. simplex, C. lucidus, L. femoralis, C. sulcicollis, C. glaberrimus, C. fascipes, C. nitidissimus, Meromyza pratorum, M. variegata, and M. laeta. The following currently accepted synonymy is confirmed by examination of Meigen's types: Chlorops strigulus (Fabricius, 1794) = C. cingulata Meigen, 1830; Thaumatomyia notata (Meigen, 1830) = C. circumdata Meigen, 1830, T. rufa (Macquart, 1835) = C. simplex Meigen, 1838; Siphonella oscimna (Fallén, 1820) = C. angustifrons Meigen, 1830; Elachiptera cornuta (Fallén, 1820) = C. femoralis Meigen, 1838; Rhopalopterum anthracinum (Meigen, 1830) = C. glaberrimus Meigen, 1838, Rhopalopterum fasciolum (Meigen, 1830) = C. fascipes Meigen 1838. Types of 9 species described by Meigen are found neither in MNHP, nor m NHMW. A new species Meromyza meigeni sp. n. is described for M. laeta sensu Ismay (1981) and Nartshuk (1992). Meromyza variegata sensu Ismay (1981), Beschovski (1985) and Nartshuk (1992) is considered to be M. athletica Fedoseeva, 1974, and a redescription of this species is given.

A.M. Naseka, F. Erk'akan & F. Küçük. 2006. A description of two new species of the genus Gobio from Central Anatolia (Turkey) (Teleostei: Cyprinidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 15(1): 185–194.

Abstract

The gudgeons of the genus Gobio from Anatolia are reviewed based upon the historical collection of the Hamburg Zoological Institute and Museum, Hamburg University, and recently collected materials. Fishes previously referred to subspecies of Gobio gobio be¬long to at least 8 species. Among them, two new species are described: G. battalgilae from northern Beyşehir Lake system (a Central Anatolian endorheic basin) and G. maeandricus from the headwaters of Great Menderes River (Aegean Sea basin). These spe¬cies are distinguished by a combination of the number of lateral line scales, predorsal and circumpeduncular scale counts, scale pattern on belly, vertebral counts, length of barbel shape of lower lip, and details of colour pattern.

Abstract

The muscular system of euconodont animals was studied in detail on the basis of the photographs of imprints from the Lower Carboniferous Shrimp Bed of Granton (Scotland), Upper Ordovician Soom Shale (South Africa), and Silurian Waukesha biota (North America). Superficial body structures are for the first time recognized for euconodont animals: external rings (annulation) (Panderodus imprint) and their traces (specimens 2 and 3 from Granton). This makes them looking like many invertebrates, such as annelids, priapulids, or pentastomids, and different from primitive chordates. In all other imprints of euconodont animals, a deep frontal break reaching their central part uncovers the inner transversal structures of the body, muscular fibers. As in invertebrates, they have different orientation. The medial apices of the fibers can be directed obliquely towards either the head (specimens 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 from Granton, and Promissum pulchrum Kovacs-Endrődy imprints) or the tail (specimens 2 and 6 from Granton) or to be perpendicular to the body axis (specimens 3-5 from Granton). Discontinuity of the transversal structures (specimens 1 and 6) appears to occur in the euconodont animals. This suggests that the transversal obliquely-oriented structures visible on the euconodont imprints, are not myomers typical of chordate animals. Differently directed position of medial apices of the obliquely-oriented muscular fibers depends, probably, on physical state (direction of movement) of the animal. The longitudinal median structure, in our opinion, cannot be considered a chord, but is rather a gut extending from pharynx to anus. Apparently, in spite of visual similarity, the euconodont animals under study cannot be classified as chordates, or chaetognaths, or pentastomids. Their muscular system differs from that of all known groups of animals and shows its own unique structure: its inner transversal structures are muscular fibers, which externally look like rings (annulation). This supports our earlier conclusion (Kasatkina & Buryi, 1997) that euconodonts constitute a separate phylum, Euconodontophylea Kasatkina & Buryi, 1997.
