Trilobodrilus itoi sp. nov., with a Re-Description of T. nipponicus (Annelida: Dinophilidae) and a Molecular Phylogeny of the Genus
Molecular phylogenetic trees based on concatenated sequences of the three genes showed that T. itoi and T. nipponicus form a clade, which was the sister group to aClade containing the two European congeners T. axi Westheide, 1967 and T .
A matter of persistence: differential Late Pleistocene survival of two rocky-shore idoteid isopod species in northern Japan
An alternative general model for Pleistocene biogeography in temperate to subtropical, non-glaciated coastal regions is presented, wherein species tend to retain large population size and high genetic diversity across glacial cycles in a zone of persistence, with flanking zones of expansion and contraction.
Diurodrilus kunii sp. nov. (Annelida: Diurodrilidae) and a Molecular Phylogeny of the Genus.
A new species of stygobiontic interstitial annelid, Diurodrilus kunii sp. nov., is described based on material collected from medium sand sediment (ϕ = 1.2-1.7) at groundwater level (40-100 cm in
