Morphological and molecular analysis of six aphelenchoidoids from Australian conifers and their relationship to Bursaphelenchus (Fuchs, 1937)
Bayesian phylogenetic analyses of SSU, LSU and COI of the six nematode species revealed that none of these Australian aphelenchoidoids was inferred to be closely related to Bursaphelenchus.
Laimaphelenchus Heidelbergi SP. NOV.(Nematoda: Aphelenchina) From Victoria, Australia, and Emendment of the Diagnosis of the Genus
The new species is characterised by having a unique tail structure, with a single tubercle with many tiny projections visible only with scanning electron microscopy, and the male has a spicule with two small protrusions on the ventral side about 2 µm from the distal end.
Diploscapter formicidae sp. n. (Rhabditida: Diploscapteridae), from the ant Prolasius advenus (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in New Zealand
Molecular phylogeny of near full-length small subunit, D2/D3 expansion segments of the large subunit rRNA gene and heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) gene showed that D. formicidae sp.
Litylenchus coprosma gen. n., sp. n. (Tylenchida: Anguinata), from leaves of Coprosma repens (Rubiaceae) in New Zealand
Molecular phylogeny of near full length small subunit, D2/D3 expansion segments of the large subunit and internal transcribed spacer rRNA genes support the description of L. coprosma gen. n.
Phylogenetic relationships within the superfamily Desmodoroidea (Nematoda: Desmodorida), with descriptions of two new and one known species
It is shown that the family Desmodoridae and superfamily Desmodoroidea as currently defined are not monophyletic, and the single Molgolaiminae sequence available formed a distinct clade together with the superfamily Microlaimoidea, and should therefore be placed with the latter.
Newly released non‐native dung beetle species provide enhanced ecosystem services in New Zealand pastures
In New Zealand, the release of new non‐native dung beetle species was intended to enhance ecosystem services but concerns were raised over possible negative effects.
Schistonchus zealandicus n. sp. (Nematoda: Aphelenchoididae) associated with Ficus macrophylla in New Zealand
Molecular phylogeny of near full length small subunit and D2-D3 expansion segments of the large subunit rRNA genes supports the proposal of S. zealandicus n.
Phylogenetic position of the enigmatic deep-sea nematode order Rhaptothyreida: A molecular analysis.
Review of the genus Odontophora (Nematoda: Axonolaimidae), with a key to valid species and description of Odontophora atrox sp. n. from the New Zealand coast
Preliminary analyses of phylogenetic relationships within the Axonolaimidae provide some support for the monophyly of Odontophora, but drawing more solid inferences about relationships within this globally distributed marine nematode genus will require more molecular sequence data of accurately (and verifiably) identified species.

Archey's frogs (Leiopelma archeyi) are first on the list of evolutionarily distinct and globally endangered (EDGE) amphibians, but programs are hampered by a lack of information on diseases present in wild and captive populations.
