High diversity in the Pseudechiniscus suillus–facettalis complex (Heterotardigrada: Echiniscidae) with remarks on the morphology of the genus Pseudechiniscus
Pseudechiniscus is a morphologically homogeneous genus of tardigrades. The morphological features commonly used for species discrimination in this genus are the dorsal sculpture, the shape andExpand
Integrative description of five Pseudechiniscus species (Heterotardigrada: Echiniscidae: the suillus-facettalis complex).
Five new species of Pseudechiniscus are described based on morphology (mainly ventral sculpture) and significant genetic distances in COI and ITS-2 sequences, and an updated phylogenetic tree of the genus is provided based on COI sequences. Expand
Olympic National Park
It is clear to me that the park is important to different people for different reasons. To the first time visitor it is a strikingly beautiful assemblage of mountains, rain forest and wildernessExpand
Two new species of the genus Milnesium Doyère, 1840 (Tardigrada, Apochela, Milnesiidae) from Madagascar
Abstract The knowledge of the diversity and distribution of tardigrades on Madagascar is rather poor. To date, only 13 tardigrade taxa have been reported from this region (including one MilnesiumExpand
Variability of Echiniscus tristis Gąsiorek & Kristensen, 2018-is morphology sufficient for taxonomic differentiation of Echiniscidae?
The description of Madagascan population of Echiniscus tristis is emended that exhibits several different types of chaetotaxy and dorsal sculpture, which highlights the importance of analysing the morphology of both immature stages and adults, as well as of DNA markers in tardigrade species identification.

First Record of Tropical Crabs Portunus sanguinolentus (Herbst, 1783) and Plagusia depressa tuberculata Lamarck, 1818 in Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan
The occurrence of the members of tropical fauna along the coast of Primorye was due, in all likelihood, to the enlargement of the amount of anthropogenic garbage transported with sea currents that serves as a substrate for settlement of different marine organisms. Expand
A Finding of the Crab Planes marinus Rathbun, 1914 (Decapoda: Grapsidae) in Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan
A crab Planes marinus Rathbun, 1914 was found on a drifting buoy in Peter the Great Bay (Sea of Japan). The crab probably arrived in the bay with subtropical waters penetrating into this area duringExpand
Revisiting the genus Mesobiotus Vecchi et al., 2016 (Eutardigrada, Macrobiotidae) – remarks, updated dichotomous key and an integrative description of new species from Madagascar
This paper analysed in detail the morphology of eggs, oral cavity armature and claws in all known Mesobiotus species, and provided a diagnostic key to the currently known species of the genus. Expand
Cumacean Lamprops pumilio—A New Species for the Sea of Japan
The treatment of materials collected in Srednyaya Bight (Peter the Great Bay) revealed in a sample taken on December 3, 1986, a female Lamprops pumilioZimmer with oostegites (3.5 mm long). The sampleExpand
