Abstract The distributional records of Ophiuroidea stored at the Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA, Section of Genoa) are presented, corresponding to 1595 individuals that belong to 35 species and 17 genera. Specimens were collected in 106 different sampling stations at depths ranging from 21 to 1652 m in the framework of 14 Antarctic expeditions to the Ross Sea, one to the Antarctic Peninsula, and one to the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas). Three species, Amphiura joubini Koehler, 1912… Expand

TLDR
Distributional data on planktic copepods collected in the framework of the IIIrd, Vth, and Xth Expeditions of the Italian National Antarctic Program to the Ross Sea sector from 1987 to 1995 are provided. Expand
The Bryozoa collection of the Italian National Antarctic Museum, with an updated checklist from Terra Nova Bay, Ross Sea
TLDR
Taxonomic and distributional data of bryozoan species from the Ross Sea area, mainly around Terra Nova Bay, based on specimens curated at the Italian National Antarctic Museum are provided. Expand
Porifera collection of the Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA), with an updated checklist from Terra Nova Bay (Ross Sea)
TLDR
This new dataset presents occurrence data for Porifera collected in the Ross Sea, mainly in the Terra Nova Bay area, and curated at the Italian National Antarctic Museum, and a 3D model of an uncommon species from theRoss Sea is presented. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of a deep sea ophiuroid of the genus Amphiura (Ophiuroidea: Amphiuridae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis support monophyly of the family Amphiuridae but not for the genus Amphiura, and the mitogenome is 15,457 in length, including 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 22 tRNA genes. Expand

Brittle stars from Southern Ocean (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea)
TLDR
This study corroborated the circumpolar and eurybathic character of the ophiuroid fauna of the Southern Ocean, but some differences are discussed when considering shelf and deep-sea fauna in the whole SO, or in the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic regions separately. Expand

The Value of Museum Collections for Research and Society
Abstract Many museums and academic institutions maintain first-rate collections of biological materials, ranging from preserved whole organisms to DNA libraries and cell lines. These biologicalExpand
DNA primers for amplification of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I from diverse metazoan invertebrates.
We describe "universal" DNA primers for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of a 710-bp fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene (COI) from 11 invertebrate phyla:Expand
A review of methods for analysing insect structures - the role of morphology in the age of phylogenomics.
TLDR
Morphology will continue to play a vital role in phylogenetic and evolutionary investigations and is the necessary basis for reconstructing character evolution on the phenotypic level and for developing complex evolutionary scenarios. Expand
Micro-computed tomography: Introducing new dimensions to taxonomy
TLDR
The potential of micro-computed tomography (X-ray micro-tomography), a non-destructive three-dimensional imaging technique based on mapping X-ray attenuation in the scanned object, for supporting research in systematics and taxonomy is explored. Expand
