Diversity and distribution of marine Gastrotricha along the northern beaches of the state of São Paulo (Brazil), with description of a new species of Macrodasys (Macrodasyida, Macrodasyidae)
TLDR
The overall high diversity contrasts with the generally low number of species from single locations, averaging 4.3 (SD 3.5) spp. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the Ergasilidae (Copepoda, Poecilostomatoida), with reconsideration of the taxonomic status of the Vaigamidae
TLDR
A cladistic analysis was conducted on these genera and the five genera composing the closely allied Vaigamidae, finding that the five vaigamid genera cannot be placed in a family separate from the Ergasilidae. Expand
On new terrestrial ostracods (Crustacea, Ostracoda) from Brazil, primarily from São Paulo State
TLDR
Five new species and a new genus of terrestrial ostracods from Brazil are described and the putative causality of the prevalence of asexual reproduction in terrestrial ostrachod faunas is briefly discussed. Expand
FAMILIAL LEVEL PHYLOGENY OF FREE-LIVING CYCLOPOIDS (COPEPODA), INFERRED FROM PARTIAL 18S RIBOSOMAL DNA
TLDR
This study is the first familial level phylogenetic analysis of free-living cyclopoid copepods and concludes that the predominantly freshwater Eucyclopinae and Cyclopinae form a strongly supported group, but the relationship between these two subfamilies remains unresolved. Expand
Gastrotricha: A Marine Sister for a Freshwater Puzzle
TLDR
From an ecological perspective, the derived position of Redudasys, which is deeply nested within the Macrodasyida clade, unequivocally demonstrates that invasion of freshwater by gastrotrichs has taken place at least twice, in contrast with the single event hypothesis recently put forward. Expand
On the genus Penthesilenula Rossetti and Martens, 1998 (Crustacea, Ostracoda, Darwinulidae) from (semi-) terrestrial habitats in São Paulo State (Brazil), with the description of a new species
TLDR
The third species, Penthesilenula brasiliensis, is here described, constituting the first darwinulid taxon to be found in fully terrestrial habitats, and the evolutionary significance of the high incidence of teratologies in the Darwinulidae is discussed. Expand
Acoela (Acoelomorpha) from the northern beaches of the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and a systematic revision of the family Otocelididae
TLDR
This book discusses the history and present situation of actinoposthia, as well as some of the mechanisms and techniques used in its development, and some of its applications. Expand
New morphological characters useful for the taxonomy of the genus Microcyclops (Copepoda, Cyclopoida)
TLDR
In five species of Microcyclops from Brazil, new or rarely mentioned structures were found to be useful in separating the species, such as the border ornamentation of the prosomal somites, the shape and ornamentation in the terminal spine on the endopod of leg 1, the presence and number of integumental pores on the terminalendopodal segment of leg 2. Expand
Antennulary development during the copepodid phase in the family Cyclopidae (Copepoda, Cyclopoida).
TLDR
L'homologie des articles antennulaires a ete etablie en comparant l'arrangement des soies de chaque article avec la presence d'elements d'ornementation reconnus ici comme marqueurs. Expand
