  • Two species of Thoracostomopsidae (Nematoda: Enoplida) from Jeju Island, South Korea. [Journal Article]
    PeerJ. 2020; 8:e9037.Jeong R, Tchesunov AV, Lee W
  • During a survey of intertidal zones at beaches on Jeju Island, two species belonging to the family Thoracostomopsidae were discovered. One new species, Enoploides koreanus sp. nov. and one known species, Epacanthion hirsutum Shi & Xu, 2016 are reported. Along with morphological analysis, mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase c subunit 1 (mtCOI) sequences and 18S rRNA sequences of the species were also…
  • Revision of Leocrates Kinberg, 1866 and Leocratides Ehlers, 1908 (Annelida, Errantia, Hesionidae). [Journal Article]
    Zootaxa. 2020 Feb 18; 4739(1):zootaxa.4739.1.1.Salazar-Vallejo SI
  • Leocrates Kinberg, 1866 and Leocratides Ehlers, 1908 are two genera of hesionid errant annelids (Hesionidae, Hesioninae) whose species have 16 chaetigers (21 segments). Leocrates species are free living in rocky or mixed bottoms, whereas Leocratides species are usually symbiotic with hexactinellid sponges. Marian Pettibone revised both genera as part of the R/V Siboga Expedition monographs 50 yea…
  • Bulbotrachystola, a substitute name for Centruroides Breuning, 1940 (Coleoptera Cerambycidae). [Journal Article]
    Zootaxa. 2019 May 30; 4612(3):zootaxa.4612.3.11.Vitali F, Yanega D
  • The genus name Centruroides was first introduced by George Marx (in Howard, 1889: 211) for two species of scorpions in the family Buthidae: C. exilicauda (Wood, 1863) and C. luctifer n. sp. The latter species, coming from Indefatigable Is. (Galapagos), lacks a description and has been considered as a nomen nudum and synonym of Centruroides exsul (Meise, 1934) (Lambertz, 2013). Nonetheless, exilic…
  • The unique traits of the subgenus Unicus within Chiasmocleis Méhely, 1094 (Anura: Microhylidae). [Journal Article]
    Zootaxa. 2019 Jul 25; 4646(3):zootaxa.4646.3.8.DE Sá RO, Tonini JFR, … Haddad CFB
  • Chiasmocleis is the most speciose genus of Neotropical microhylids. The genus consists of three monophyletic clades that were recently recognized as subgenera. Within Chiasmocleis, the subgenus Unicus has a basal position in the phylogeny and contains a single species that occurs in the North Atlantic Forest of Brazil, isolated from the ranges of other Chiasmocleis. However, the subgenus Unicus l…
  • Genus-group names of Mutillidae (Hymenoptera): corrections and updates since 2008. [Journal Article]
    Zootaxa. 2019 Aug 06; 4651(3):zootaxa.4651.3.10.Brothers DJ, Lelej AS, Williams KA
  • Information is provided for 38 genus-group names in Mutillidae, of which 13 have been proposed as new since 2008. For 14 names, additional information is provided beyond that given in Lelej Brothers (2008), including a new synonymy (Cameronilla Lelej in Lelej Krombein, 2001 = Spilomutilla Ashmead, 1903). One additional nomen nudum and ten additional incorrect spellings discovered since 2008 are a…
  • Pectinariidae (Annelida, Terebelliformia) from off southeastern Brazil, southwestern Atlantic. [Journal Article]
    Zootaxa. 2019 Mar 28; 4571(4):zootaxa.4571.4.3.DE Matos Nogueira JM, Ribeiro WMG, … Hutchings P
  • Two of the species of Pectinariidae previously reported from the Brazilian coast are herein described, together with a new species and also new record for the genus Petta Malmgren, 1866 for the southern Atlantic. Amphictene catharinensis (Grube, 1870) was described from material from off Santa Catarina, southern Brazil, but the most recent description for these animals comes from Nilsson (1928); …
  • Reclassification of the Sack-bearer Moths (Lepidoptera, Mimallonoidea, Mimallonidae). [Journal Article]
    Zookeys. 2019Laurent RAS, Kawahara AY
  • A backbone molecular phylogeny of Mimallonidae, based on 47 species and 515 loci, was recently published. That study resolved some of the major relationships in the family, but taxon sampling was limited and a classification of the family was not formally presented for all species. Here morphological phylogenetic analyses in parsimony and maximum likelihood (ML) frameworks were conducted that inc…
  • Lethrus (Lethrus) thracicus (Coleoptera: Geotrupidae), a new species from the European part of Turkey. [Journal Article]
    Zootaxa. 2018 Nov 15; 4521(4):573-583.KrÁl D, Hillert O, … ŠÍpek P
  • Lethrus (Lethrus) thracicus Král Hillert, new species, from Thrace, north-western Turkey is described. The new species is compared with the morphologically similar species L. (L.) apterus (Laxmann, 1770), L. (L.) ares Král, Rejsek Schneider, 2001 and L. (L.) schneideri Král Hillert, 2013. Relevant diagnostic male characters (shape of mandibles, ventral mandible processes, pronotum and parameres) …
  • Integrative taxonomy of Afrotropical Ornithodoros (Ornithodoros) (Acari: Ixodida: Argasidae). [Journal Article]
    Ticks Tick Borne Dis. 2018 05; 9(4):1006-1037.Bakkes DK, De Klerk D, … Mans BJ
  • Afrotropical Ornithodoros (Ornithodoros) ticks are revised based on qualitative morphology of females and nymphs, as well as tarsus I shape outlines of females measured in a geometric morphometric framework. These lines of evidence corroborate lineages based on 16S rRNA nucleotide sequence data. Four previously unrecognized species are described, along with a revived nomen nudum that was previous…
  • An updated checklist of Echinoderms from Indian waters. [Journal Article]
    Zootaxa. 2017 Nov 27; 4354(1):1-68.Samuel VKD, Krishnan P, … Ramesh R
  • Species checklists enlist the species available within the defined geographical region and thus serve as essential input for developing conservation and management strategies. The fields of conservation biology and ecology confront the challenge of inflated biodiversity, attributed to non-recognition of taxonomic inconsistencies such as synonyms, alternate representation, emendations etc. Critica…
  • A commentary on the practice of using the so-called typeless species. [Journal Article]
    Zookeys. 2017Shatalkin AI, Galinskaya TV
  • The fears expressed by Santos et al. (2016) that description of typeless species (new species described based on field photographs) can be fatal for the practice of taxonomy which will succumb to an uncontrollable stream of "species of questionable delimitation" are, in our opinion, exaggerated. The Code already protects taxonomic practice from subjectivity quite well by limiting opportunities fo…
