A new phaeodarian species, characterized by the presence of long developed side branches recurved proximally and distally on the surface of its radial tube, was described as Auloscena pleuroclada. This new species was only collected from the layers below the 250 m depth in the Sea of Japan. They have never been found in the shallower layers (above 250 m) of this sea or in other investigated areas. The distribution of the present new species is presumably restricted within the deep water of this… 

Gazelletta kashiwaensis sp. nov. (Medusettidae, Phaeodaria, Cercozoa), Its Morphology, Phylogeny, Distribution, and Feeding Behavior

A phaeodarian morphotype, characterized by the feet surrounded with forked pedal spines with anchor‐like structures, was collected in the subtropical North Pacific and described as Gazelletta kashiwaensis sp.

Phaeodaria from the northwestern Pacific, with description of a new species, Challengeron tochilinae

It is suggested that Protocystis ornitocephala Reshetnjak, 1952 and P. vicina may be synonyms and a new species, Challengeron tochilinae sp.n.



Aulographis japonica sp. nov. (Phaeodaria, Aulacanthida, Aulacanthidae), an abundant zooplankton in the deep sea of the Sea of Japan

Molecular analysis based on 18S SSU rDNA revealed that Aulacantha scolymantha, which belongs to the same family as A. japonica, is closer to Aulosphaera trigonopa and Protocystis spp.

Phaeodaria: Diverse Marine Cercozoans of World-Wide Distribution

The hitherto-known information on this marine protist is comprehensively reviewed in this chapter, and this plankton group plays an important role in local ecosystems and has a large impact in the silica cycle of the ocean.

Deep-sea adaptation of the epipelagic chaetognath Sagitta elegans in the Japan Sea

The size and number of grasping splnes and teeth of the Japan Sea specimens are larger than those from the Pacific, and they have developed intestinal tissue containing oil droplets, like mesoand bathypelagic specles, which are adaptations to the deep-water environment.
