  journal={Marine Biodiversity},
Two new species of Semnoderidae from the Gulf of Mexico are described, and the presence of Antygomonas cf. gwenae and a yet undescribed species of Antygomonas is reported. Sphenoderes aspidochelone nov. sp. is recognized by the presence of a first segment forming a closed ring with deep middorsal and midventral incisions, stout, middorsal acicular spines on segments 1 to 11, lateroventral acicular spines on segments 3 to 9, sexually dimorphic laterodorsal spines on segment 10 and minute… 
Pycnophyidae (Kinorhyncha: Allomalorhagida) from the Gulf of Mexico: Fujuriphyes viserioni sp. nov. and a redescription of Leiocanthus langi (Higgins, 1964), with notes on its intraspecific variation
Fujuriphyes viserioni sp. nov. is described from the Gulf of Mexico. The new species is characterized by the scarcity of laterodorsal setae, and the abundance of ventrolateral setae, which are
Deep-sea Echinoderidae (Kinorhyncha: Cyclorhagida) from the Northwest Pacific
The presence of E. hakaiensis in the deep-sea sediments demonstrates that the species may occur at a great depth range, and suggests that depth may play a less important role for the distribution of some kinorhynch species.
Kinorhynch diversity in the southern Gulf of Mexico and a description of Dracoderes chaac sp. nov.
This study focused on the non—echinoderid members of the Phylum Kinorhyncha, many of which are rare or restricted to only a few locations, and identified 136 species reported from earlier collections in the northern Gulf of Mexico on the U.S. continental shelf.
New mud dragons from Svalbard: three new species of Cristaphyes and the first Arctic species of Pycnophyes (Kinorhyncha: Allomalorhagida: Pycnophyidae)
Four new species of the kinorhynch family Pycnophyidae are described from Svalbard, which becomes with 14 species the most diverse kinorHynch genus in the Arctic, closely followed by Echinoderidae with 13 species.
Kinorhynch communities on the Louisiana continental shelf
Abstract.— Kinorhynchs are microscopic invertebrates that are part of the meiofaunal community. Their diversity and distribution has been relatively unstudied in the Gulf of Mexico until the past few


Two new species of Echinoderes (Kinorhyncha: Cyclorhagida) from the Gulf of Mexico
Two new species of the cyclorhagid genus Echinoderes are described, one of which can be recognized by its conspicuously well-developed pachycycli at the anterior segment margins of segments 2 to 10, and margins of sternal plates facing the midsternal junctions of segments 3 to 10.
Tubulideres seminoli gen. et sp. nov. and Zelinkaderes brightae sp. nov. (Kinorhyncha, Cyclorhagida) from Florida
One new kinorhynch genus and species and one new species from the genus Zelinkaderes are described from sandy sediment off Fort Pierce, Florida. The new genus and species, Tubulideres seminoli gen.
Wollunquaderes majkenae gen. et sp. nov.—a new cyclorhagid kinorhynch genus and species from the Coral Sea, Australia
A new kinorhynch genus and species, Wollunquaderes majkenae gen. nov., is described from a locality in the Coral Sea, southeast of the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, and displays several traits found in species of Antygomonas and/or Semnoderes, but also characters that otherwise are considered unique for taxa of Centroderidae.
Zelinkaderes yong sp. nov. from Korea - the first recording of Zelinkaderes (Kinorhyncha: Cyclorhagida) in Asia
The finding of a new species of Zelinkaderes in East Asia extends the distributional range of the genus, which suggests that the genus basically could be present anywhere in the world and could be considered as cosmopolitan.
New species of Centroderes (Kinorhyncha: Cyclorhagida) from the Northwest Atlantic Ocean, life cycle, and ground pattern of the genus.
Evidence is provided that species of Centroderes develop via at least two adult life history stages, but three or more adult stages exist in C. drakei n.
A new species of the rare genus Sphenoderes (Cyclorhagida, Kinorhyncha), with differential notes on S. indicus Higgins, 1969
A new species of the rarely recorded kinorhynch genus Sphenoderes was collected in the Korea Strait and East China Sea and is distinguished by the presence of lateroventral cuspidate spines on segments 5 and 9 only, opposed to cuspidates on segments5, 8 and 9 as found in S. indicus.

A new kinorhynch genus and species is described from coralline sand collected on the atoll of the Chuuk Islands, Micronesia, and shares several characters with species of Zelinkaderes, including reduced number of scalid rings, distally tripartite placids.
Redescription of Cateria gerlachi (Kinorhyncha, Cyclorhagida) from Sri Lanka and of C. styx from Brazil, with notes on C. gerlachi from India and C. styx from Chile, and the ground pattern of the genus.
Detailed morphological data is reported for species of Cateria, including variability within populations, a female and a male life-history stage, as well as moulting of an adult stage to another adult stage.
