The current nematode classification comprises three primarily marine basal Chromadorean orders: the Microlaimida Leduc et al., 2018; Desmodorida De Coninck, 1965; and Chromadorida Chitwood, 1933. The phylogenetic placement of several taxa within these orders, however, is unclear due to the paucity of taxonomically informative morphological characters for high-level classification and is yet to be tested by molecular phylogenetic analyses due to the absence of molecular sequences. Here, we…

Taxonomy and biogeography of Molgolaimus Ditlevsen, 1921 (Nematoda: Chromadoria) with reference to the origins of deep sea nematodes

TLDR
A comparison of morphometric characteristics between species suggests that the most similar species co-occur in the same geographical region, rather than within the same bathymetric zones or similar ecosystems separated over long distances, which suggest that deep sea nematodes may not have a common origin but might have derived “recently” from shallow water taxa.

Deep-sea nematodes of the family Microlaimidae from the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone (North-Eastern Tropic Pacific), with the descriptions of three new species*

The description of six species of family Microlaimidae (Nematoda), from 5,000 m depth at the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone (North-Eastern Tropic Pacific), is given. Three previously described

Revision of Desmodorinae and Spiriniinae (Nematoda: Desmodoridae) with redescription of eight known species

TLDR
The taxonomy of the family Des modoridae (Nematoda: Desmodorida) is partially revised based on morphology and eight known species are redescribed and the implication of the new findings for the taxonomic of the group is discussed.

One new genus and two new free-living nematode species (Desmodorida, Desmodoridae) from the continental margin of New Zealand, Southwest Pacific Ocean.

TLDR
One new genus and two new species of the family Desmodoridae are described from the upper continental slope of New Zealand, at 350-1240 m water depths and the genus Pseudonchus is recorded for the first time from the deep sea.

Revision of Microlaimidae, Erection of Molgolaimidae fam.n., and Remarks on the Systematic Position of Paramicrolaimus (Nematoda, Desmodorida)

TLDR
The main differentiating characters applied are: structures of the head region,shape of the oesophagus, position of the excretory pore, shape of the tail, structure of the gonads and ornamentation of the cuticle.

New Spirinia and Stygodesmodora species (Nematoda, Spiriniinae) from the Southwest Pacific, and a revision of the related genera Spirinia, Chromaspirina and Perspiria

TLDR
Two new species of the family Desmodoridae are described from the upper continental slope of New Zealand, Southwest Pacific, and the genera Spirinia, Chromaspirina and Perspiria are revised to eliminate overlap in the definitions of these genera.

TLDR
The use of egg morphology, recently suggested to be a key taxonomic criterion within the genus Eulimnadia, is here criticized, on the basis of material identified as E. cylindrova from several North American populations.
