V.G. Gagarin & V.A. Gusakov. 2012. A new species of the genus Calodorylaimus(Nematoda, Dorylaimida) from highly mineralised rivers of the Elton Lake basin, Russia. Zoosystematica Rossica, 21(1): 3-9.

Abstract

A new species of free-living nematode (Calodorylaimus salinus sp. nov.), found in sediment of the highly mineralised rivers of the Elton lake basin (Russia), is described and illustrated. This species is close to C. mongolicus Andrássy, 1988, but differs from the latter in having a wider labial region, a stouter tail in females and a greater number of separate precloacal supplements in males. A dichotomic key for identification of valid species of the genus CalodorylaimusAndrássy, 1986 is given. Calodorylaimus densus Andrássy, 1988 is assigned to the genus Laimydorus Siddiqi, 1969.

Abstract

Free-living freshwater nematodes from Borneo Island (Kalimantan) have not been studied before. In the article, a brief list of nematodes found in shallow rivers and streams of the North Borneo (Malaysia, Sabah State) is given. The few samples with single specimens of nematodes suggest similarity of the nematode fauna of the entire Malay Archipelago.

S.G. Ermilov & A.E. Anichkin. 2012. Two new species of oribatid mites (Acari: Oribatida) from Bu Gia Map National Park (Vietnam). Zoosystematica Rossica, 21(1): 18-27.

Abstract

Two species of oribatid mites (Acari: Oribatida), Pergalumna pseudosejugalis sp. nov. and Oribatella gerdweigmanni sp. nov. are described from Bu Gia Map National Park (Southern Vietnam). Pergalumna pseudosejugalis sp. nov. is most similar morphologically to P. crassipora Mahunka, 1995, but it differs from the latter in the microfoveolate integument, presence of pseudosejugal line, of a pair of transversal striate bands on ventral side and of median pore, and by shorter lamellar setae. Oribatella gerdweigmanni sp. nov. is most similar morphologically to O. sculpturata Mahunka, 1987, but it differs from the latter in a smaller body size, a microfoveolate integument, the presence of the translamella, more short lateral and medial lamellar dens, and sparse striae in an epimeral region.

A.V. Gorochov & M. Ünal. 2012. Review of Turkish crickets from the subfamily Gryllomorphinae (Orthoptera: Gryllidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 21(1): 28-59.

Abstract

The fauna of Gryllomorphinae of Turkey is reviewed. Sixteen species and subspecies are established. Ovaliptila anamur sp. nov., O. anitli sp. nov., O. alanya sp. nov., O. alanya proxima subsp. nov., O. alara sp. nov., O. teke sp. nov., O. ibrahimi sp. nov., Glandulosa borisi sp. nov. and Gryllomorpha dalmatina minutissima subsp. nov. are described. Ovaliptila beroni (Popov, 1975), Glandulosa kinzelbachi Harz, 1979, G. harzi Gorochov, 1996 and Gryllomorpha Antalya Gorochov, 2009 are briefly characterized based on the type material. Ovaliptila buresi Mařan, 1958 is indicated as a rather widely distributed species in the western part of Anatolia (but not in the southern coast of this peninsula). Gryllomorpha dalmatina pieperi Harz, 1979, G. miramae Medvedev, 1933 and the nominotypical subspecies of G. miramae are recorded from Turkey for the first time, but both subspecies remain open to question.

A.V. Gorochov. 2012. Seventh addition to the revision of Itarinae (Orthoptera: Gryllidae). Zoosystematica Rossica, 21(1): 60-62.

Abstract

A new species [Itara (Bornitara) matangi sp. nov.] is described from Borneo (Malaysia: Sarawak). It is distinguished from the other representatives of this subgenus by the venation of male tegminal sridulatory apparatus in combination with some characters of male genitalia.

S.V. Buga & A.V. Stekolshchikov. 2012. Aphids of the tribe Macrosiphini (Insecta: Homoptera: Aphididae) in Belarus. Zoosystematica Rossica, 21(1): 63-96.

Abstract

Investigation of Macrosiphini in Belarus started in the 1900s. However, a regional checklist of Macrosiphini has not been published yet. Based on material preserved in our collections and data scattered across publications, we have compiled the first comprehensive list of Macrosiphini recorded from Belarus and briefly analysed it from the geographical and ecological points of view. The list includes 52 genera, 156 species and 2 subspecies. Acyrthosiphon cyparissiae (Koch, 1855), A. euphorbiae Börner, 1949, Diuraphis (Holcaphis) frequens (Walker, 1848), Dysaphis angelicae (Koch, 1854), D. apiifolia petroselini (Börner, 1950), D. lauberti (Börner, 1940), Paramyzus heraclei Börner, 1933, Macrosiphum melampyri Mordvilko, 1919, and Uroleucon pulicariae (Hille Ris Lambers, 1939) are recorded from Belarus for the first time. The recorded diversity is lower than in the adjacent countries – Poland and Latvia. In accordance with the global pattern of aphid relations with their host plants, the majority of Belarusian Macrosiphini species permanently inhabit herbaceous plants (monoecious species) or migrate to them from woody plants (dioecious species). Among the recorded species, 27 inhabit a single host plant species, 85 – plants of a single genus, 37 – plants of a single family, and only seven species inhabit host plants of several families or more. At least 16 species (10% of local fauna of Macrosiphini) are alien to Belarus.

I.A. Gavrilov-Zimin & E.M. Danzig. 2012. Taxonomic position of the genus Puto Signoret (Homoptera: Coccinea: Pseudococcidae) and separation of higher taxa in Coccinea. Zoosystematica Rossica, 21(1): 97-111.

Abstract

Taxonomic characters of the families Pseudococcidae Cockerell, 1898, Putoidae Beadsley, 1969, Pennygullaniidae Koteja et Azar, 2008 and two superfamilies of Coccinea are discussed in view of phylogenetic meaning of these characters. It is shown that Putoidae Beadsley, 1969 is an unavailable name (nomen nudum); moreover, Putoidae sensu Williams et al., 2011 as a separate family considered in the superfamily Orthezioidea (= an informal group of “archeococcids”), is a taxonomic paradox that lies outside of both cladistic and evolutionary concepts in taxonomy and ignores the majority of well-known and carefully proven facts. There is not a single unique apomorphic character in the monotypic family Putoidae; all characters of the genus Puto Signoret, 1875 are plesiomorphies of all scale insects or synapomorphies with other mealybugs or with the closely related Ceroputo Šulc, 1898. Ceroputo is accepted here as a subgenus of Puto. The monotypic fossil family Pennygullaniidae is considered by us a new subjective synonym of Pseudococcidae. The taxonomic and nomenclatural problems connected with the higher taxa of scale insects and other groups of Homoptera are briefly discussed.

B.M. Kataev. 2012. Species of the genus Dioryche similar to D. cuprina (Dejean, 1929) comb. nov. (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Harpalini). Zoosystematica Rossica, 21(1): 112-130.

Abstract

Based on examination of the type specimens, Selenophorus cuprinus Dejean, 1829 and Selenophorus lucidulus Dejean, 1829 are transferred to the genus Dioryche MacLeay, 1825. These species are redescribed and new data on their distribution are provided. Three new species are described: D. (s. str.) dravidana sp. nov. from Southern India, D. (s. str.) nitidula sp. nov. from Northern India and D. (s. str.) subrecta sp. nov. from Pakistan, Northern India and Nepal. The following new synonyms are established: D. cuprina (Dejean, 1829) comb. nov. =Harpalus colombensis Nietner, 1857, syn. nov. = Cardiaderus scitus Walker, 1858, syn. nov.; D. lucidula (Dejean, 1829) comb. nov. = Platymetopus colombensis var. braccatus Bates, 1891, syn. nov. Lectotypes are designated for Selenophorus cuprinus Dejean, 1829 and Platymetopus colombensis var. braccatus Bates, 1891. The taxonomic position of Dioryche among other genera of the Selenophori group is discussed.

A.L. Lvovsky. 2012. Paralypusa, a new genus of the family Lypusidae (Lepidoptera: Gelechioidea) from China. Zoosystematica Rossica, 21(1): 169-172.

Abstract

A new eastern-palaearctic monotypic genus of the gelechioid moths, Paralypusa gen. nov., is established for the Chinese species Paralypusa chinensis (Lvovsky, 2010), comb. nov. This genus is considered closely related to Lypusa Zeller, 1852 on the base of several synapomorphies. However Paralypusa also shares some features with the genera Pseudatemelia Rebel, 1910 and Amphisbatis Zeller, 1870. Its transitional state confirms the belonging of all the aforementioned genera to one family and synonymy of the Lypusidae Herrich-Schäffer, 1857 and Amphisbatidae Spuler, 1910 (Nieukerken et al., 2011).

Yu.A. Lovtsova. 2012. First record of the little-known species Psychidea alba (Lepidoptera: Psychidae) from the Northern Caucasus. Zoosystematica Rossica, 21(1): 173-174.

Abstract

Two new species of the genus Dolichopus Latreille, 1796 from northern Siberia are described, D. haritonovi sp. nov. and D. hasynensis sp. nov. In the recent key to Palaearctic species of Dolichopus (Negrobov et al., 2005), D. haritonovi runs to D. gorodkovi Negrobov, 1973, and D. hasynensis, to D. intonsus Smirnov, 1948. Supplemental couplets are provided to identify the new species. Lectotype and paralectotypes of D. intonsus are designated. New records of the rare species D. gorodkovi are given. Male genitalia of all the above-mentioned species are illustrated.

А.Е. Zhokhov. 2012. Metacercariae of trematodes (Plathelminthes: Trematoda) of Garra dembecha (Actinopterygii: Cyprinidae) from Lake Tana, Ethiopia. Zoosystematica Rossica, 21(2): 193-203.

Abstract

The paper presents a study of metacercariae collected from Garra dembecha Stiassny et Getahun, 2007 in Lake Tana, Ethiopia. Metacercariae of five unidentified species are described, namely: Diplostomulum sp. 1, Diplostomulum sp. 2, Diplostomulum sp. 3 (Diplostomidae), Ichthyocotylurus sp. 1, Ichthyocotylurus sp. 2 (Strigeidae) and Posthodiplostomum nanum Dubois, 1937. The most striking feature of the Diplostomulum sp. 2 metacercaria is thickening of muscle fascicles at the base of the pseudosuckers. The most characteristic feature of the Diplostomulum sp. 3 is division of a body into the anterior and posterior parts mismatching the anterior and posterior segments of body. This is the first record of Ichthyocotylurus metacercariae from fish in Africa. Detailed morphological descriptions and illustrations of species are presented.

Abstract

The new studies revealed two new species of the subgenus Kabakovia Kirejtshuk, 1979, stat. nov. [Cryptarchopria (K.) nepalensis sp. nov. from Nepal and C. (K.) ivoriensis sp. nov. from the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire] and made it possible to revise the subgenus and the composition of the genus Cryptarchopria Jelínek, 1975 including the subgenera Kabakovia and Horakia Jelínek, 2000, stat. nov., and also to make some assumptions on evolution of the groups related to this subgenus associated with palm inflorescences, and to offer some proposals on systematics of the subfamily. Also, the synonymy of Cornutopria Endrödy-Younga, 1978 and Palmopria Endrödy-Younga, 1978, syn. nov. as well as the synonymy of Microporum C. Waterhouse, 1876 and Lucanopria Audisio et Cline, 2009, syn. nov. were proposed, while other“genera” erected by Audisio et al., 2009 are still regarded as problematic.

Abstract

Following four years of highly charged debate the rules for publication of scientific names of animals have been changed to allow electronic publications to meet the requirements of the stringent International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. In a landmark decision, the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN) has passed an amendment to its rules that will accept an electronic-only publication as ‘legitimate’ if it meets criteria of archiving and the publication is registered on the ICZN’s official online registry, ZooBank.
A brief discussion of the amendment is available from:
