The Anopheles superpictus complex: introduction of a new malaria vector complex in Iran.
TLDR
The degree of divergence in ITS2 is much more than an intra-specific variation seen within the anopheline mosquitoes, and it points out the possibility of cryptic species within the taxon.
Molecular and morphological characterisations of two new species of Rotylenchus (Nematoda: Hoplolaimidae) from Iran
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis based on sequences of the D2-D3 expansion regions of 28S and ITS1-rRNA genes confirmed the species differentiation of Rotylenchus iranicus n.
Description of Atetylenchus minor n. sp. (Tylenchina: Tylenchidae) and data on two other species of the family
TLDR
Three species of the family Tylenchidae, including one new and two known species, are described and illustrated and molecular phylogenetic studies revealed that the new species formed a clade with an unpublished species assigned to Psilenchus in Bayesian inference (BI) with low Bayesian posterior probability (BPP).
Description of Longidorus perangustus sp. n. (Dorylaimida: Longidoridae), an amphimictic species from Iran
TLDR
The new species is characterized by having an extremely slender and narrow body and an anteriorly flattened lip region, separated from the rest of the body by a depression, and forms a clade with four isolates of L. euonymous in both Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood analyses.
Morphological and molecular characterization of Paractinolaimus sahandi n. sp. (Nematoda: Actinolaimidae) from the Sahand Mountains in Iran
TLDR
The new species, which is the only one in the genus showing the advulval cuticular tiny papillae and is unusually slender, is compared to four species of Paractinolaimus, and has distinct differences from those of the only sequenced P. macrolaimus.
Genetic structure of the malaria vector Anopheles superpictus in Iran using mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase (COI and COII) and morphologic markers: a new species complex?
TLDR
The authors' observations suggest that A. superpictus in Iran is likely a group species, and further ecological, molecular, cytological, and epidemiological studies are necessary to clear the status of the taxon and the potential role of each putative species in the transmission of malaria.
Description of Lelenchus brevislitus n. sp. (Nematoda: Tylenchidae), an example of a cryptic species from Iran and its phylogenetic relationships with other species in the family
TLDR
The new species is considered to be a cryptic species inside the Tylenchidae, and the results revealed it formed a clade with an isolate of L. leptosoma, a sister clade to some Malenchus spp.
Description of one new, and new data on two known, species of Enchodelus Thorne, 1939 (Dorylaimida: Nordiidae) from Iran
TLDR
This contribution provides a study of one new and two known species of Enchodelus and E. longispiculus recorded for the first time in Iran and in Asia and compared to other known populations of these species.
First Record of Three Known Species of the Family Tylenchidae Örley, 1880 (Nematoda: Tylenchina) from Iran with New Morphological and Molecular Data
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the three recovered species were studied using the partial sequences of 28S rDNA D2/D3 segment and revealed the genera Cephalenchus and Eutylenchus forming a monophyletic clade, while, Lelenchus was placed inside the clade of currently sequenced species of Malenchus in Bayesian tree.
{null=Description of Rhyssocolpus vinciguerrae sp. n. (Dorylaimida, Nordiidae) from Iran and the first molecular study of this genus, en=Description of Rhyssocolpus vinciguerrae sp. n. (Dorylaimida,
TLDR
A molecular characterisation of the new species supported a close relationship between Rhyssocolpus and Heterodorus, and a more distant relationship with Enchodelus.
