Ancient River Inference Explains Exceptional Oriental Freshwater Mussel Radiations
TLDR
This study reconstructs the history of freshwater basin interactions across continents based on the multi-locus fossil-calibrated phylogeny of freshwater mussels (Unionidae), revealing that the Mekong may be considered a long-lived river that has existed throughout the entire Cenozoic epoch.
Pollinators on the polar edge of the Ecumene: taxonomy, phylogeography, and ecology of bumble bees from Novaya Zemlya
TLDR
It is highlighted that the insularity is a significant factor sharply decreasing species richness in bumble bee assemblages on the Arctic Ocean archipelago through colder climate (lower summer temperatures), prevalence of harsh Arctic tundra landscapes with poor foraging resources, and in isolation from the mainland.
Species Richness, Molecular Taxonomy and Biogeography of the Radicine Pond Snails (Gastropoda: Lymnaeidae) in the Old World
TLDR
The taxonomy, distribution and evolutionary biogeography of the radicine lymnaeids in the Old World is clarified based on the most comprehensive multi-locus molecular dataset sampled to date and the first DNA barcode reference library for the reliable molecular identification of species within this group is presented.
FIRST RECORD OF THE GENUS AETHALIDA WALKER, 1865 (LEPIDOPTERA: EREBIDAE: ARCTIINAE) FROM FLORES ISLAND, EAST NUSA TENGGARA, INDONESIA
The discussed record marks presence of the genus Aethalida Walker, 1865 in East Nusa Tenggara (Flores Island, Indonesia) for the first time. We have found that a specimen from Flores Island shows
Freshwater mussels house a diverse mussel-associated leech assemblage
TLDR
It is shown that the association with freshwater mussels evolved independently in three leech clades, i.e. Batracobdelloides, Hemiclepsis, and Placobdella, at least since the Miocene.
Integrative taxonomy, biogeography and conservation of freshwater mussels (Unionidae) in Russia
TLDR
The taxonomy and biogeography of Russian Unionidae species based on the most comprehensive multi-locus dataset sampled to date is clarified and the distribution and conservation status for each species is revised.
A REVIEW OF TIGER MOTHS (LEPIDOPTERA: EREBIDAE: ARCTIINAE: ARCTIINI) FROM FLORES ISLAND, LESSER SUNDA ARCHIPELAGO, WITH DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES AND NEW SUBSPECIES
TLDR
The findings reveal that the tiger moth fauna of the Flores Island has rather moderate level of endemism, with only 32% of putative endemic taxa.
A new Contradens from Laos (Bivalvia: Unionidae: Contradentini)
TLDR
Phylogenetic and morphological analyses reveal that the new taxon is closely related to Contradens comptus but can be distinguished from it by a smaller size, sub-ovate shell shape, tiny wrinkles near umbo, stronger pseudocardinal and lateral teeth, and fixed nucleotide substitutions.
First record of Pisidium nevillianum Theobald, 1876 (Bivalvia: Sphaeriidae) from Myanmar
TLDR
Pisidium nevillianum Theobald, 1876, a common pea clam species, was recorded in the Indawgyi Lake, Northern Myanmar for the first time, which could reveal a high dispersal rate of the species, likely via water birds.
Leptocneria vinarskii sp. nov. (Lepidoptera: Erebidae: Lymantriinae), an overlooked Wallacean lineage of the Australian genus
TLDR
The findings confirm that the Wallacean region was a faunal exchange area between Sundaland and Sahul during the Pleistocene but highlight that the vicariance events may have played a crucial role in origin of the endemic faunas on the islands of East Nusa Tenggara.
