NEW GENUS WITH TWO NEW SPECIES OF CAPSALID MONOGENEANS FROM DASYATIDS IN THE GULF OF CALIFORNIA
We propose Listrocephalos n. gen. (Monogenea: Capsalidae: Entobdellinae) for 2 new capsalid species that infect the skin of 2 species of diamond stingrays (Dasyatidae) in the Gulf of California. WeExpand
TAENIACANTHODES DOJIRII N. SP. (COPEPODA: POECILOSTOMATOIDA: TAENIACANTHIDAE), FROM CORTEZ ELECTRIC RAYS (NARCINE ENTEMEDOR: TORPEDINIFORMES: NARCINIDAE) CAPTURED IN THE GULF OF CALIFORNIA, AND A
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of the 3 known species of Taeniacanthodes resulted in a single most parsimonious tree demonstrating that T. gracilis and T. haakeri, both parasites of benthic teleosts, are more closely related to each other than to the new species. Expand
DIONCHUS POSTONCOMIRACIDIA (MONOGENEA: DIONCHIDAE) FROM THE SKIN OF BLACKTIP SHARKS, CARCHARHINUS LIMBATUS (CARCHARHINIDAE)
TLDR
The findings support the idea that some dionchid oncomiracidia colonize the skin of sharks or other aquatic vertebrates that sponsor remoras, prior to transferring to other remoras and maturing. Expand
Survey of Blueberry (Vaccinium spp.) Problems in the Gulf South
TLDR
The blueberry (Vaccinium) industry in Mississippi has been steadily increasing since the early 1980s, but some plants in older fields are now in decline, with damage caused by the 2004 and 2005 hurricanes at the top of the list. Expand
NEW GENUS AND SPECIES OF EUDACTYLINID (SIPHONOSTOMATOIDA: COPEPODA) FROM GILL LAMELLAE OF ORNATE EAGLE RAYS, AETOMYLAEUS VESPERTILIO (MYLIOBATIDAE), COLLECTED IN THE BEAGLE GULF OFF NORTHERN AUSTRALIA
Janinecaira darkthread n. gen., n. sp. (Eudactylinidae, Siphonostomatoida, Copepoda) infects gills of the ornate eagle ray Aetomylaeus vespertilio (Bleeker, 1852) (Myliobatidae, Myliobatiformes) inExpand
Morphology of the deep-sea copepod Bobkabata kabatabobbus (Lernaeosoleidae: Poecilostomatoida) and amended diagnosis of Lernaeosoleidae.
TLDR
A revised family diagnosis is provided that primarily differentiates Lernaeosoleidae from the closely allied Chondracanthidae H. Milne-Edwards, 1840 and other poecilostomatoids based on the absence of mandibles, first and second maxillae, maxillipeds, and thoracic legs 1-4 in lernaeOSoleids. Expand
Lernaeosolea Wilson, 1944 (Chondracanthidae, Copepoda): Morphological Discoveries and New Ocean and Host Records1
TLDR
Microscopic examination of the copepods revealed features previously unknown for Lernaeosolea adult females: namely, a simple mouth anteriorly delimited by a labrum, maxillules,maxillae, maxillsae, Maxillipeds, and one pair of vestigial swimming legs. Expand
