Abstract

The list of generic and subgeneric taxa arranged into subfamilies and tribes proposed for sap beetles is given, which includes also new genera [Parapocadius gen. nov. (Nitidulinae: Nitidulini) and Interfaxia gen. nov. (Nitidulinae: Cyllodini)] and subgenera [Semocarpolus subgen. nov. Gaplocarpolus subgen. nov. Askocarpolus subgen. nov.

The Meoncerus Sharp, 1891; Apsectochilus Reitter, 1874 and Lordyrops Reitter, 1875 are considered as quite distinct each from other above mentioned as from all other generic taxa. In the list there are given the complete synonymy, including new synonymy of generic and subgeneric names [Crepuraea Kirejtshuk, 1990 and Nyujwa Perkovsky, 1990 syn. nov.; Haptoncus Murray, 1864 and Haptoncurina Jelínek, 1977, syn. nov.; Ecnomaeus Erichson, 1843 and Somaphorus Murray, 1864, syn. nov.; Ecnomorphus Motschulsky, 1858; Tribrachys LeConte, 1861 syn. nov.; Stauroglossicus Murray, 1864, syn. nov. and Microxanthus Murray, 1864, syn. nov.; Pria Stephens, 1829 and Allopria Kirejtshuk, 1980, syn. nov.; Megauchenia Macleay, 1825 and Orvoenia Dajoz, 1980, syn. nov.; Tetrisus Murray, 1864 and Pseudoischaena Grouvelle, 1897, syn. nov.; Neopocadius Grouvelle, 1906 and Pseudostelidota Grouvelle, 1906, syn. nov.; Cychramus Kugelann, 1794 and Aethinopsis Grouvelle, 1908, syn. nov.; Mystrops Erichson, 1843, and Cryptoraea Retter, 1873, syn. nov.; Cyllodes Erichson, 1843 and Mecyllodes Sharp, 1891, syn. nov.; Grammorus Murray, 1868 and Colopteroides Watrous, 1982, syn. nov.; Cryptarcha Shuckard, 1839 and Priatelus Broun, 1881, syn. nov.]. For some taxa the rank is changed, namely, Lordyra Gemminger & Harold, 1868, stat. nov. is regarded as a subgenus of Lasiodactylus Perty, 1830-1834; Brounthina Kirejtshuk, 1997, stat. nov. as a subgenus Neopocadius Grouvelle, 1906 and Teichostethus Sharp, 1891, stat. nov. as a subgenus of Hebascus Erichson, 1843, while the taxa Coxollodes Kirejtshuk, 1987 (stat. nov.) and Onicotis Murray, 1864 (stat. nov.) are regarded as separate genera. The new taxa and new taxonomical proposals are supplied with corresponding data in the notes below the list.

(Carphophilus: Ecnomorphus); Cryptarcha optanda (Broun, 1881), comb. nov. (Priateles). Besides, because of the new interpretation for Pallodes laetus Grouvelle, 1898, which should be transfered to the genus Camptodes, C. grouvellei nom. nov. (non Camptodes laetus Kirsch, 1873) is proposed. For the generic names Perilopa Erichson, 1843 and Meoncerus Sharp, 1891 the type species are designated as well as for Pallodes laetus Grouvelle, 1898 (Camptodes grouvellei nom. nov.) the lectotype designation is made.

2008. A Forum for Taxonomists: amendments to be done in the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. Zoosystematica Rossica, 17(2): 1-9.

Abstract

Below we re-publish a paper from Zootaxa which is permitted to be made freely available online for everyone to read, download, copy, distribute, and use (with attribution to Zhang, 2008: 68). Zoosystematica Rossica will also help to publicise the important novelties by ICZN so that it reaches the widest readership possible. The ICZN (2008) has responded in a timely manner by proposing the following amendment of the fourth edition of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN 1999) to allow electronic publishing of new zoological names and nomenclatural acts coupled with (1) proper archiving of works to ensure permanent conservation and access and (2) registration of new scientifi c names in open access ICZN registry (i.e. ZooBank) to ensure that they are made widely known. The ICZN proposal also addresses methods of publication in general, discusses the reasoning behind the proposal, and provides explanations of the procedure for amendment and adoption of the proposal (Zhang, 2008). The ICZN encourages comments from the community of zoologists as to whether they oppose, support, or can suggest improvements and alternatives to the various parts of the proposal. To facilitate the discussion on this important topic for zoological taxonomy, Zoosystematica rossica also welcomes comments on the ICZN proposal. Zoosystematica Rossica will publish manuscripts devoted to the matter.

Abstract

A histological examination was conducted based on sections done in series in transverse and longitudinal directions of Aidanosagitta macilenta (Sagittidae, Chaetognatha) in a region which includes the anterior parts of the testes and the posterior part of the ovaries. We found that, in mature individuals (the 4th stage of maturation), the anterior parts of the testes are located in front of the posterior part of the ovaries. The anterior parts of the testes have a ventral position adjoining the ventral muscular bands. The ovaries are located more dorsally than the testes at the level of lateral fi elds. A transverse trunk-tail septum between testes and ovaries was not revealed. These data support an idea that a structure which was earlier treated as a tail-trunk septum is actually the anterior edges of the testes. Both longitudinal coelomic cavities continue into the tail region without any transverse septa. The paired tail cavities as can be seen from their composition and functions represent the testes consisting of a peripheral compact portion with undifferentiated germ cells and a space where the maturation of cells occurs. The tail is distinguished anatomically as a post-anal portion of the body but it is not a true segment as it is not separated from a trunk part of the body by the trunk-tail septum. The body of Chaetognatha consists of two true parts (segments). A mesenterial septum divides the body longitudinally-symmetrically from a trunk-head septum down only to the caudal end of the gut. In the tail region there is a medial septum formed by the medial walls of testes. Gonads in both females and males do not have any duct connecting them with a gut cavity. The ovaries and the testes are covered by a coelomic lining and a duct between the ovaries and the testes is absent.

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is giving an extensive overview of the cranial skeleton of Gymnocorymbus ternetzi (Boulenger, 1895) in a form of a formalized scheme that reflect its Bauplan (German for building plan, blueprint; plural: baupläne or bauplaene), a term in biology referring to the common new and original [homologous] properties of the members of a systematic group [taxon]). Each element of the Bauplan can be described by a set of parameters, i.e., size, shape, structure, material composition and position. Though Bauplan is undoubtedly an abstraction, it is a necessary abstraction to be used in phylogenetic analysis with preference to "ingroup" and "outgroup" comparisons.The cranial osteology of black tetra Gymnocorymbus ternetzi (Boulenger, 1895) is described based on the study of larvae, juvenile and adult specimens. Provided are Latin terms and some English equivalents as well remarks on origin, homology and terminology for each cranial bone discussed.

A.A. Makhrov. 2008. Hybridization of the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) and brown trout (S. trutta L.). Zoosystematica Rossica, 17(2): 129-143.

Abstract

Hybrids between the Atlantic salmon and brown trout can be identifi ed on the basis of genes coding for several protein and DNA markers. Hybrids are found in all regions where the Atlantic salmon and brown trout are sympatric. The main causes of the hybridization are the sneaking of mature male parr, escape and release of cultivated fi shes, unstable river discharges, and overfi shing. In numerous experimental crosses, the survival of F1 hybrids varies from zero (a complete loss) to normal. Post-F1 hybridization sometimes results in gynogenesis, hybridogenesis and introgression. The role of hybridization in the evolution of Salmo is discussed.
