Limited molecular sequence data are available for selachinematid nematodes, with little or no data from the Southern Hemisphere or habitats beyond the subtidal zone. Here, we provide molecular sequence data for the small subunit (SSU) 18S rDNA gene and D2-D3 region of large subunit (LSU) 28S rDNA gene of three new (Cheironchus haurakiensis n. sp., Halichoanolaimus anisospermus n. sp., and Bendiella longicauda n. sp.) and two known selachinematid species (Pseudocheironchus ingluviosus Leduc…

New and known Halichoanolaimus de Man, 1886 species (Nematoda: Selachinematidae) from New Zealand’s continental margin

Dorsosublateral rows of pore complexes and pseudocoelomocytes, features that have either rarely or not been recorded previously in the genus, were observed in all four species described here and the taxonomic significance of these features remains to be ascertained.

Description of a new marine predatory nematode Latronema dyngi sp. nov. (Nematoda, Chromadorida, Selachinematidae) from the west coast of Sweden and an updated phylogeny of Chromadoria

A new nematode species, Latronema dyngi sp. nov., is described from Skagerrak off the west coast of Sweden with the type locality near Dyngö island. Latronema dyngi sp. nov. is characterized by

The findings in this study suggest that meiofaunal community attributes are mostly influenced by sediment characteristics and food availability, but that disturbance (fishing activity and bioturbation) also accounts for some of the variability.

Two new genera and five new species of Selachinematidae (Nematoda, Chromadorida) from the continental slope of New Zealand

Two new genera and five new species of Selachinematidae are described from the New Zealand upper continental slope and Males of the genus Cobbionema are described for the first time.

Latronema whataitai sp. n. (Nematoda: Selachinematidae) from intertidal sediments of New Zealand, with notes on relationships within the family based on preliminary 18S and D2-D3 phylogenetic analyses

Molecular phylogenies of near full length small subunit and D2-D3 expansion segments of the large subunit rRNA genes do not provide support for the division of Selachinematidae into the subfamilies Selach Cinemaatinae and Choniolaiminae, and do not support a close relationship between Latronema and Richtersia despite some morphological similarities.

On some selachinematid nematodes (Chromadorida: Selachinematidae) deposited in the collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History

Summary – A review and descriptions are given of some new or poorly known species of the family Selachinematidae mounted in glycerin on slides deposited in the nematode collection of the Smithsonian

Systematics and DNA barcoding of free-living marine nematodes with emphasis on tropical desmodorids using nuclear SSU rDNA and mitochondrial COI sequences

COI performed better than SSU rDNA to disentangle relationships among closely related species and suggested the presence of cryptic diversity within Desmodoridae, which is effective to explore cryptic diversity and barcode species within Nematoda.

New deep-sea free-living marine nematodes from the Sea of Japan: the genera Siphonolaimus and Halichoanolaimus (Nematoda: Chromadorea) with keys to species identifications.

In deep-sea sediments from the Sea of Japan, two new species, Halichoanolaimus brandtae sp. n. and Siphonolaimus japonicus sp. n., were found and described. Siphonolaimus japonicus sp. n. is

Phylum-wide analysis of SSU rDNA reveals deep phylogenetic relationships among nematodes and accelerated evolution toward crown Clades.

The exclusive common presence of fungivorous and plant parasitic nematodes supports a long-standing hypothesis that states that plant parasitic Nematodes arose from fungivory ancestors.

Community Structure of Free-living Marine Nematodes in the Area of Agar-Producing Alga Ahnfeltia To b u c h i e n s i s Field (Starka Strait, Peter the Great Bay, East Sea)

The structure of the nematodes communities has been studied in the sediments on two sites located outside and under the layer of Ahnfeltia tobuchiensis and this type of the ground is characterized by high index of species diversity and low level of domination.

An integrated approach to fast and informative morphological vouchering of nematodes for applications in molecular barcoding

It is argued that data-rich surveys and phylogenetic tools for analysis of barcode sequences are an essential component of the exploration of phyla with a high fraction of undiscovered species.

Littoral free living nematode fauna of Socorro Island, Colima, Mexico

Six species are considered cosmopolitan; two tropical and 21 are undescribed; all species are first records for the Mexican Pacific Ocean.

Cheironchus paravorax n.sp. and Cheironchus vorax Cobb, 1917 from the Campeche Sound, an oil producing zone in the Gulf of Mexico (Nemata: Selachinematidae)

A new species Cheironchus paravorax n.sp. is described from the oil producing zone of Campeche Sound in the Gulf of Mexico. It closely resembles C. vorax COBB, 1917 but differs by its more slender
