Abstract Three new species are described for the Seychelles: Calcarobio‐tus (Discrepunguis) tetrannulatus sp.n., Macrobiotus gerlachae sp.n. and M. pseudonuragicus sp.n. Calcarobiotus (Discrepunguis) tetrannulatus sp.n. differs from all of the known species of the subgenus by having a smooth cuticle with fine dots, by lacking eyes, by having one lateral and one medial spur on the bases of the claws on the first three pairs of legs, and by having a crown of teeth lying in a single row (and not a… 

Three new species of eutardigrades from the Seychelles

Abstract Three new species of tardigrades are described from the Seychelles: Macrobiotus pseu‐docoronatus, Macrobiotus danielisae, and Hypsibius seychellensis. Macrobiotus pseudocoronatus sp. n.

Description of a new Tardigrade, Macrobiotus barbarae (Eutardigrada: Macrobiotidae) from the Dominican Republic

— A moss sample collected in the Dominican Republic contained tardigrades and their eggs, including adults and eggs of a new species, Macrobiotus barbarae sp. nov. The new species belongs to the

Two new tardigrade species from Romania (Eutardigrada: Milnesiidae, Macrobiotidae), with some remarks on secondary sex characters in Milnesium dornensis sp. nov.

In two moss and lichen samples collected in Romania, two new eutardigrade species were found, and males and females of the newly described Milnesium species differ not only by the shape and structure of claws I, but also by other morphometric characters.

The assemblage of both presumably endemic and widely distributed tardigrade species in Mauritius fits the recent emerging biogeographic patterns for this group of micrometazoans.

First records of water bears (Phylum Tardigrada) from Swaziland

There are no published records of water bears (Phylum Tardigrada) from Swaziland. Two samples of foliose lichen collected in 2010 contained nine tardigrade specimens and one egg belonging to five

Revision of the Genus Paramacrobiotus Guidetti et al., 2009 with the Description of a New Species, Re-Descriptions and a Key

A diagnostic key to the genus Paramacrobiotus was developed based on the morphological and morphometric characters of adults and eggs, and characterized species within the genus based on seven different types of eggs.

First record of Tardigrada from São Tomé (Gulf of Guinea, Western Equatorial Africa) and description of Pseudechiniscus santomensis sp. nov. (Heterotardigrada: Echiniscidae)

The first six species of tardigrades from Sao Tome Island were recorded: the heterotardigrade Pseudechiniscus santomensis sp.

The genus Milnesium (Eutardigrada, Apochela, Milnesiidae) in Argentina: description of three new species and key to the species of South America

With the present contribution the genus Milnesium now has 48 valid species, and the number of described limno-terrestrial tardigrade species from South America has risen to 11, including 8 from Argentina with 5 from Salta and La Pampa province.

Remarks on tardigrades from the Seychelles, with a description of two new species

Nine species of tardigrades are recorded; two of them, Echiniscus tropicalis and Minibiotus decrescens, are new to science. Macrobiotus peteri Pilato et al. 1989 has been found in Australia and

An evolutionary line of the Macrobiotinae (Tardigrada, Macrobiotidae): Calcarobiotus and related species

Abstract Three species of Macrobiotus (M. gildae, M. polygonatus and M. eugranulatus) were re‐examined. Based on their synapomor‐phies with Calcarobiotus, they are ascribed to that genus. Within

Correlations between cryptobiosis and other biological characteristics in some soil animals

Abstract Attention is focused on soil rotifers, gastrotrichs, nematodes and tardigrades which are active solely when enveloped by a water film and survive freezing and desiccation by virtue of their

Zoogeographic distribution of terrestrial/freshwater tardigrades from current literature

Tardigrade species recorded from terrestrial and freshwater habitats in various countries and the number of countries from which tardigrades have been recorded are tabulated.
