Janinecaira darkthread n. gen., n. sp. (Eudactylinidae, Siphonostomatoida, Copepoda) infects gills of the ornate eagle ray Aetomylaeus vespertilio (Bleeker, 1852) (Myliobatidae, Myliobatiformes) in the Beagle Gulf (Timor Sea, eastern Indian Ocean) off northern Australia. The adult female of Janinecaira darkthread n. sp. is most easily distinguished from other eudactylinids (Eudactylinidae) by its long genital complex that comprises about 86–90% of the total body length. A diagnostic key to… Expand
New records of parasitic copepods (Copepoda: Pandaridae, Eudactylinidae, Caligidae) on elasmobranchs (Chondrichthyes) in the Gulf of Mexico
The aim of this study was to identify the parasitic copepod species in some elasmobranchs (two rays and four shark species) that are commercially important in the Southern Gulf of Mexico (Mexico). InExpand

TLDR
It is proposed that the fortified structure of shark gills allows many shark species to ventilate passively without having evolved gill filament modifications, which may have expedited the evolution of lamnid shark species through pre-adaptation to a swift oceanic lifestyle. Expand
A Method for Studying the External Anatomy of Copepods
We have found lactic acid to be the best clearing agent for the preparation of temporary mounts of whole or dissected copepods. Fresh, alcoholic, or formalin fixed specimens become cleared within aExpand
