Immature stages of beetles representing the ‘Opatrinoid’ clade (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae): an overview of current knowledge of the larval morphology and some resulting taxonomic notes on Blapstinina
TLDR
The majority of studied larvae were associated with adults using molecular tools, resulting in an updated phylogeny of the ‘Opatrinoid’ clade, provides an evolutionary context for discussion of larval morphology and a new synonym is proposed within Blapstinina.
First Report of the Lesion Nematodes: Pratylenchus Brachyurus and Pratylenchus Delattrei on Tomato (Solanum Lycopersicum L.) Plants in Cape Verde
TLDR
Roots of Solanum lycopersicum L. were collected in growing season of year 2015, on the island of Santiago in Cape Verde, and revealed the presence of Pratylenchus brachyurus and P. delattrei in root systems and root zones of tomato plants, the first record of the occurrence of these nematode species in CapeVerde.
The effect of supplemental vitamin E and dietary rape seed oil level on broiler performance, meat and fat quality
The effect of increasing dietary vitamin E levels in diets containing animal fat and rape seed oil on the performance, α-tocopherol content of tissues, meat and fat quality, and health of broiler
Descriptions of two new and one known species of Parkellus Jairajpuri, Tahseen and Choi, 2001 (Nematoda: Mononchidae) and their phylogenetic position among Mononchida
TLDR
Two new species of Parkellus are described, illustrated and their phylogenetic position among the Mononchida is presented and the newly described species are morphologically most similar to P. parkus and P. zschokkei.
New records of plant-parasitic nematodes from Iceland
TLDR
The species identified are economically important plant-parasitic nematodes of likely interest to—among others—Icelandic plant protection professionals and may contribute to better understanding the origin of nematode species on the island of Iceland.
Morphological and molecular characterisation of one new and one known species of Makatinus Heyns, 1965 (Dorylaimida: Aporcelaimidae) from Ukraine, with new insights into its phylogeny
TLDR
The morphological and molecular data of the Ukrainian populations reveal an interesting diversity within the genus Makatinus, which might not be a monophyletic taxon.
Morphological and molecular characterisation of Tripylina gorganensis from the Slovak Republic as a contribution to the redescription of the species
TLDR
A careful re-examination of type specimens performed in this study revealed that T. gorganensis also has the post-vulval uterine sac, and the findings of the morphological and molecular studies performed on the Slovak population and observations on the type material contribute to the redescribed species.
