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. Onepunema gen. n. is characterised by a striated head capsule, small buccal cavity without teeth, and presence of two testes. Onepunema gen. n. can be differentiated from all other genera of the family by the presence of two testes, which is an exception to the holapomorphic character (i.e. monorchic males) of the Desmodoroidea. Onepunema… 

One new genus and two new deep-sea nematode species (Desmodoridae, Stilbonematinae) from phosphorite nodule deposits on Chatham Rise, Southwest Pacific Ocean

This is only the second record for this subfamily of the subfamily Stilbonematinae in a deep-sea environment; the presence of this taxon on Chatham Rise is likely due to the proximity of the highly productive Subtropical Front and the relatively coarse nature of the sediments.

Phylogenetic relationships within the superfamily Desmodoroidea (Nematoda: Desmodorida), with descriptions of two new and one known species

It is shown that the family Desmodoridae and superfamily Desmodoroidea as currently defined are not monophyletic, and the single Molgolaiminae sequence available formed a distinct clade together with the superfamily Microlaimoidea, and should therefore be placed with the latter.

Free-living marine nematodes of Desmodorella and Zalonema (Nematoda: Desmodoridae) with description of two new species from the deep sea of the North Western Pacific.

Three desmodorid species of the genera Desmodorella and Zalonema from the NW Pacific are reported, studied and described using both scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and light microscopy.

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

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.

New nematode species from the continental slope of New Zealand (Chromadorea, Microlaimida, and Chromadorida), and unexpected placement of the genus Molgolaimus Ditlevsen, 1921

Congruence analysis suggests that in some cases at least, the structure of the female reproductive system is a more taxonomically informative trait for marine nematode classification than the male reproductive system or cuticle.

Morphological and molecular characterisation of new Acanthopharynx and Desmodora species (Nematoda: Desmodorinae) from intertidal sediments of New Zealand

Preliminary analyses of phylogenetic relationships within the Desmodorinae and closely related Spiriniinae using SSU and D2-D3 of LSU molecular sequences indicate that both subfamilies are paraphyletic.

The present paper proposes to update the taxonomic status of the Timm's species as Pseudochromadora benepapillata comb along the eastern most coast of India along with its distribution and comparative morphology.

Spirobolbolaimus undulatus sp. nov. in intertidal sediment from the East China Sea, with transfer of two Microlaimus species to Molgolaimus (Nematoda, Desmodorida)

The diagnosis of the genus Spirobolbolaimus is emended based on the description of the new species, which is characterized by six jointed outer labial setae much thicker and longer than the four slender cephalic setae, anterior and posterior pharynx bulbs, sclerotized multispiral amphid fovea, eight longitudinal rows of postamphideal setae and many precloacal supplements.

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

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.
