Redescription, Phylogenetic Placement, and Taxonomic Reassignment of Mesobdella lineata (Sciacchitano, 1959) (Hirudinida: Arhynchobdellida)

The new genus Parapraobdella is warranted to accommodate the unique combination of characters of the species that is morphologically similar to Neotropical representatives of the family.

First record of Limnatis paluda (Hirudinida, Arhynchobdellida, Praobdellidae) from Kazakhstan, with comments on genetic diversity of Limnatis leeches

Mitochondrial COI and 12S data demonstrated that the present specimens are genetically close to an Israeli specimen identified as Limnatis nilotica, and molecular data suggest that someLimnatis specimens whose DNA sequences have been reported were misidentified.

Insights into the evolutionary history of Indo-Pacific bloodfeeding terrestrial leeches (Hirudinida : Arhynchobdellida : Haemadipisdae)

This phylogenetic hypothesis rejected Gondwanan vicariance as an explanation for the diversification of haemadipsids and provided a basis for continued elucidation of the evolutionary relationships and classification of these terrestrial annelids.

A revision of the higher taxonomy of the Afrotropical freshwater crabs (Decapoda: Brachyura) with a discussion of their biogeography

The higher taxonomy of the 20 known genera of Afrotropical freshwater crabs is revised to reflect the evolutionary relationships revealed by the consensus of a series of recent morphological and

Annotated catalogue of beetles (Coleoptera) of the Socotra Archipelago.

Beetles of the Socotra Archipelago, Yemen, were catalogued and it is expected that many of them represent as yet undescribed taxa endemic to the archipelago.

Tyrannobdella rex N. Gen. N. Sp. and the Evolutionary Origins of Mucosal Leech Infestations

This new species, found feeding from the upper respiratory tract of humans in Perú, clarifies an expansion of the family Praobdellidae to include the new species Tyrannobdella rex n.sp.

Insect biodiversity of the Socotra Archipelago – underlined and counted

The diversity of insects in Socotra is briefly commented on and compared with the nearest archipelago – the Seychelles.
