Abstract The male genital system was examined in 9 male specimens of Chironectes minimus (2 adult and 7 young) from Brazil. Unlike other didelphids, C. minimus lacks a cloaca and has distinct anal and urogenital openings, and the tunica vaginalis lacks black pigmentation. Similar to other American didelphids, C. minimus has a segmented carrot-shaped prostate gland with 3 anatomical segments that can be distinguished by color, length, and diameter in adults. The 2 pairs of bulbourethral glands… Expand
Marsupial morphology of reproduction: South America opossum male model
This study aims to describe the morphology of Didelphis sp. male genital organs (penis, testes, epididymis, ductus deferens, prostate, and bulbourethral gland). Ten male animals were used, eight forExpand
Geographic variation in cranial morphology of the Water Opossum Chironectes minimus (Didelphimorphia, Didelphidae)
TLDR
Geometric morphometrics shows that the Amazon animals differ from the others probably due to existing geographical barriers, which supports the need for a proper phylogenetic assessment of these populations, in order to clarify their taxonomic status. Expand

Results show that the male reproduction system of G. microtarsus is anatomically similar to that of Didelphis sp. Expand
Evolution of Scapula Size and Shape in Didelphid Marsupials (Didelphimorphia: Didelphidae)
  • D. Astúa

  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2009
TLDR
Results indicate that the Didelphidae evolved from a medium- to small-sized ancestor with a generalized scapula, slightly more similar to arboreal ones, but strikingly different from big-bodied presentArboreal species, suggesting that the ancestral DidelPHidae was a small scansorial animal with no particular adaptations for arBoreal or terrestrial habits, and these specializations evolved only in larger-bodied clades.

DIVERSIDADE MORFOLÓGICA DOS ÓRGÃOS COPULATÓRIOS DOS VERTEBRADOS: UMA REVISÃO
TLDR
This review systematizes and compares morphology of copulatory organs, with special focus on vertebrates, as well as associates these structures under a phylogenetic perspective, and where possible highlights mainly male reproductive strategies with a view to reproductive success. Expand
Geographic morphometric and environmental differentiation of the water opossum, genus Chironectes Illiger, 1811 (Didelphimorphia: Didelphidae)
TLDR
The results on morphometric and environmental space suggest that specimens from the Atlantic Forest are different from specimens from Central America+Venezuela/Colombia+Belem both in size and shape and environmentally. Expand
Anatomy of the cavernous muscles of the kangaroo penis highlights marsupial–placental dichotomy
TLDR
The first detailed anatomical investigation of the muscles of the penis in the western grey kangaroo is provided incorporating dissection, histology, vascular casting and computed tomography, highlighting a greater diversity in form and function in the evolution of the mammalian penis. Expand

TLDR
The morphology and distribution of glycogen and mucous substances in the prostate and the bulbourethral glands of Metachirus nudicaudatus, the only species of the genus, is described. Expand

TLDR
A decade of morphological and molecular research on the phylogenetic relationships of didelphid marsupials (opossums) is summarized, with a completely resolved ingroup phylogeny with high support statistics at most nodes. Expand

TLDR
The present study examines and compares the structure of the testis and its excurrent ducts in a caenolestid and four didelphid marsupials, indicating a diversity of rete form in the marsupial similar to that seen in eutherian mammals. Expand

The penis of dasyurid marsupials
TLDR
The penis of dasyurid marsupials began with the observation by Woolley of an unusual appendage on the penis of one of the rarer species, the Dibbler, Antechinus apicalis, which suggested that it might contain erectile tissue. Expand
The testicular Rete mirabile of Marsupials.
TLDR
The spermatic cords of 24 representative marsupial species have been examined for the presence of a rete mirabile, and it is suggested that this finding is of some taxonomic value, since no similar structure has been observed in eutherian mammals. Expand
Blood supply to the testis of a Brazilian marsupial (Didelphis azarae) and its abdominotesticular temperature gradient.
TLDR
The testicular arteries of Didelphis azarae originate from the abdominal aorta either independently from each other or by way of a common trunk, appearing than an abdominotesticular gradient temperature exists in this animal. Expand
