Characterization of dinucleotide microsatellite loci in the living fossil tadpole shrimp Triops cancriformis (Crustacea Branchiopoda Notostrace)
Five dinucleotide markers were obtained from a microsatellite genomic library of the tadpole shrimp Triops cancriformis . The number of alleles at each locus was low (maximum three alleles) but allExpand

Rapid identification of non-neosomic Tunga penetrans and Tunga trimamillata (Insecta Siphonaptera) specimens through PCR-RFLP method
Tunga penetrans (L.) and T. trimamillata Pampiglione et al. are the unique species of the genus parasiting men. While morphological identification of gravid females is possible, the diagnosis onExpand

Wolbachia superinfection in an Ecuadorian sample of the sand-flea Tunga penetrans (Preliminary note)
Wolbachia spp. are intracellular endosymbionts that cause reproductive alterations in their hosts. We here demonstrate the coexistence (superinfection) of both the arthropod- and theExpand

Mitochondrial and nuclear DNA variability in the living fossil Triops cancriformis (Bosc, 1801) (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Notostraca)
The living fossil Triops cancriformis comprises bisexual (either gonochoric or hermaphroditic) and unisexual populations. Genetic surveys have recently revealed a general trend of low differentiationExpand

Phylogeny of Chrysotoxum species (Diptera: Syrphidae) inferred from morphological and molecular characters
Relationships of nine Italian Chrysotoxum species were analysed using morphological and molecular data. The morphology-derived cladogram revealed three well-defined groups: (i) C. cautum, (ii) theExpand

Allozyme analysis and phyletic relationships of two new stick‐insects from north‐west Sicily: Bacillus grandii benazzii and B. rossius‐grandii benazzii (Insecta Phasmatodea)
Two new Sicilian stick‐insects have been discovered within the genus Bacillus. Evidence concerning the subspecific differentiation of Bacillus grandii benazzii and the hybrid constitution of B.Expand

R2 dynamics in Triops cancriformis (Bosc, 1801) (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Notostraca): turnover rate and 28S concerted evolution
The R2 retrotransposon is here characterized in bisexual populations of the European crustacean Triops cancriformis. The isolated element matches well with the general aspects of the R2 family and itExpand
