The deep-sea nematode assemblages of the French mining claim area in the Clarion-Clipperton Nodule Province (the Northeastern Pacific Basin, 14°N, 130°W, depth 4,947–5,046 m) were studied at species, genus and family levels. Material was obtained using multicorers and box corers. In total, 2,174 individuals from 14 stations and 21 samples were examined. The(More)
Nematode females of the genus Trophomera (Benthimermithidae) from the collection of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (Washington, DC, USA) were examined. Nematodes were collected in different parts of the Western Atlantic (Hatteras Abyssal Plain, Brazil Basin, and Argentina Basin) from depths of 467–5,223 m. Two new species are(More)
All available information from literature sources dealing with deep-sea nematode species was analyzed, in order to obtain an overview of the state of knowledge in deep-sea nematode taxonomy and answer the question of how many valid nematode species are known from the deep sea so far. One hundred and twenty-seven taxonomic and ecological literature sources(More)
The descriptions of seven new and supplemental descriptions of four known species of the genus Acantholaimus (Nematoda: Chromadoridae) from about 5,000 m depth in the abyssal manganese nodule field of the French Claim of the Clarion–Clipperton Fracture Zone (north-eastern tropical Pacific) are given. A. arthrochaeta sp. n. differs from other Acantholaimus(More)
In spite of the fact that shallow-water meiobenthos of the White Sea is a relatively well studied, the information on meiobenthic fauna from the deepest part of this sea is still very scanty. This study represents the first major study of the meiobenthos from the deep White Sea. The composition of the meiobenthic community, density and vertical distribution(More)
A new genus, Cyathoshiva, of free-living marine nematodes from the subfamily Cyatholaiminae (family Cyatholaimidae, order Chromadorida), is described from the Indian coast. The new genus differs from other known Cyatholaiminae genera in having a unique combination of morphological characters: buccal cavity with well-developed dorsal tooth and two subventral(More)
The shallow-water nematodes of the White Sea are relatively well studied; however, information on the nematode fauna inhabiting the deepest part of this sea is very scarce. The composition of the nematode assemblages (at species and genus level) was studied in samples collected during four sampling occasions in the deepest part of the Kandalaksha Depression(More)
