Evolution of nematode-trapping cells of predatory fungi of the Orbiliaceae based on evidence from rRNA-encoding DNA and multiprotein sequences
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the initial trapping structure evolved along two lineages yielding two distinct trapping mechanisms: one developed into constricting rings and the other developed into adhesive traps, suggesting that the derived adhesive traps are at a highly differentiated stage.
Origin and evolution of carnivorism in the Ascomycota (fungi)
TLDR
Five protein-encoding genes were used to construct the phylogeny of the carnivorous fungi in the phylum Ascomycota; these fungi prey on nematodes by means of specialized trapping structures such as constricting rings and adhesive traps and revealed a definitive pattern of evolutionary development for these trapping structures.
Dactylella coccinella sp . nov . , an anamorphic species
TLDR
Diagnostic characters that distinguish this anamorphic fungus from other Dactylella species are a simple conidiophore that bears a single, cylindrical, 1-7-septate conidium with a round distal end.
Sinomonas mesophila sp. nov., isolated from ancient fort soil
TLDR
On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and molecular characteristics, the strain MPKL 26T represents a novel species of the genus Sinomonas, for which the nameSinomonas mesophila sp.
A REVIEW OF THE CATFISH GENUS PSEUDEXOSTOMA (SILURIFORMES: SISORIDAE) WITH DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES FROM THE UPPER SALWEEN (NUJIANG) BASIN OF CHINA
TLDR
The new species, Pseudexostoma longipterus, can be distinguished from P. yunnanensis by the following combination of characteristics: posterior margin of lower lip with three notches, depth of middle notch shallower than depth of lateral ones, and bigger eyes and a wider interorbital width.
A review of the genus Pareuchiloglanis (Sisoridae) from the Lancangjiang (upper Mekong River) with descriptions of two new species from Yunnan, China
This study reports five species of Pareuchiloglanis in the Lancangjiang drainage of China, including descriptions of two new species: P. abbreviatus sp. nov. , P. gracilicaudata , P. kamengensis , P.
Mariniluteicoccus endophyticus sp. nov., an endophytic actinobacterium isolated from root of Ocimum basilicum.
TLDR
Two strains of Gram-stain-positive, aerobic, non-motile, irregular coccus-shaped bacteria, designated YIM 2617T and YIM2617-2, were isolated from the root of Ocimum basilicum and represent a novel species of the genus Mariniluteicoccus.
A new species of Pacifides from the Western Pacific Coast and the first fully freshwater species of the maricolan planarian genus Paucumara (Platyhelminthes, Tricladida, Maricola)
TLDR
Two new Chinese species of maricolan planarians are described through an integrated approach, including morphological, histological and molecular phylogenetic analyses, and the position of the genus Pacifides is determined for the first time in the phylogenetic tree of the marine triclads.
