A world catalogue and taxonomic keys of the subfamily Nicomachinae (Polychaeta: Maldanidae) are provided. Threegenera and 32 species are listed, complete with original references, synonyms, additional references, type localities, andtaxonomic remarks for those species which present some problem. Nicomache interstricta Ehlers, 1908 is transferred tothe genus Lumbriclymene Sars, 1872. Nicomache inornata Moore, 1903, Petaloproctus crosnieri Rullier, 1964, and Petaloproctus crenatus Chamberlin… Expand
Lumbriclymene interstricta comb. nov. with a taxonomic key and a catalogue for all species of Lumbriclymene (Maldanidae, Polychaeta)
In this paper, we transfer Nicomache interstricta Ehlers, 1908 to Lumbriclymene Sars, 1872 based on a redescription of the type-specimen. We provide new illustrations for the species and newExpand
Nicomache (Loxochona) lokii sp. nov. (Annelida: Polychaeta: Maldanidae) from the Loki’s Castle vent field: an important structure builder in an Arctic vent system
It is concluded that this new maldanid species, Nicomache (Loxochona) lokii sp. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of Petaloptoctus (Maldanidae: Polychaeta), with description of a new species from southeastern Brazil
The genus Petaloproctus is monophyletic, and is supported by a strongly arched prostomium, pinnate capillary setae, and an anal cup with a reduced dorsal border, and Monophyly of Micromaldane and Nicomache was also supported in the analysis. Expand
Phylogenetic Position of the Queer, Backward-bent Entoproct Loxosoma axisadversum (Entoprocta: Solitaria: Loxosomatidae)
A preliminary phylogenetic analysis using concatenated partial sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene, as well as the nuclear 18S and 28S rRNA genes, placed L. axisadversum as the sister taxon to all the rest of Solitaria included in the analysis, indicating non-monophyly of the genus Loxosoma Keferstein, 1862.

Phylogenetic relationships within Maldanidae (Capitellida, Annelida), based on morphological characters
The Maldanidae annelid worms are reviewed and the phylogenetic relationships of their subgroups provided, based on Hennigian principles and maximum parsimony, and Arenicolidae remains the sister-group of Maldanaceae, and both should be referred to Maldanomorpha. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and ultrastructure of two novel parasitic dinoflagellates, Haplozoon gracile sp. nov. and H. pugnus sp. nov.
It is concluded that these two isolates are new species of Haplozoon, H. gracile and H. pugnus, which were covered with many depressions that overlaid the amphiesmal vesicles in both species. Expand
Polychaetes of Greece: an updated and annotated checklist
This checklist revises the status of all extant polychaete species reported from the Greek Exclusive Economic Zone since 1832 and provides information on 836 species-level taxa from Greece, of which 142 are considered questionable. Expand
