some families of the birds where the genera have been too greatly multiplied; e. g., in the Str41rioeb, Ieterbbe, l-ringillitee, filrunzdinide, Corvidee, Yjl'reannidw, Ai-deidce, Anatidce, etc. As a model of really diagnostic analysis we refer to that of the Falconidee (p. I io), where the divisions, whether all generic or not, receive the characters which belong to them in the system. The most valuable part of the book is that relating to the fishes, where the ichthyologist, as well as the… 
Description of a new species of the genus Marphysa (Eunicidae), Marphysa aegypti sp.n., based on molecular and morphological evidence
It is confirmed that this polychaete, which is a common inhabitant of Egyptian coastal waters (i.e., Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea and the Suez Canal), is a distinct species and further support the view that thepolychaete fauna of Egypt needs taxonomic revision.
Catalog of type specimens of recent Mammals : Rodentia (Sciuromorpha and Castorimorpha) in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian institution
The type collection of Recent mammals in the Division of Mammals, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, contains 843 specimens bearing names of 820 species group taxa of Rodentia (Sciuromorpha and Castorimorpha) as of July 2011, which comprise 798 holotypes, 14 lectotypes, seven syntype series, and one neotype.
Clethrionomys Tilesius, 1850 is the valid generic name for red-backed voles and Myodes Pallas, 1811 is a junior synonym of Lemmus Link, 1795
The incorrect usage of Myodes instead of Clethrionomys for red-backed voles has led to scientific and practical instability and confusion, and should be discontinued.
Bats of Saint Martin, French West Indies/Sint Maarten, Netherlands Antilles
Six species of bats have been previously reported from the Antillean island of Saint Martin/Sint Maarten—Artibeus jamaicensis, Brachyphylla cavernarum, Molossus molossus, Tadarida brasiliensis,
The oldest known cyclophoroidean land snails (Caenogastropoda) from Asia
The earliest Miocene (Aquitanian, 23–21 Ma) Hang Mon Formation at Hang Mon in Northern Vietnam has yielded a rich assemblage of terrestrial gastropods. Four species from this assemblage belong to the
Cipactlichthys scutatus, gen. nov., sp. nov. a New Halecomorph (Neopterygii, Holostei) from the Lower Cretaceous Tlayua Formation of Mexico
A phylogenetic analysis including two outgroups and eleven neopterygians confirmed the monophyly of the Holostei as well as the monophthora of the Halecomorphi, although this last clade is weakly supported.

New Occurrence of Abnormal Sea Star, Astropecten indicus from Mudasalodai, South East Coast of India
A marine invertebrate of starfish is a most familiar one that was mainly occur on the seabed and diversity of star fish is remarkable ones, while a number of species a long-lived planktotrophic larval stage.
An annotated checklist of Cantharoidea (Coleoptera) of Russia and adjacent territories
Provided is an annotated checklist of the superfamily Cantharoidea of Russia and adjacent territo- ries that constituted until 1991 the USSR. The checklist includes five families, Omalisidae,
Habitat and Host Indicate Lineage Identity in Colletotrichum gloeosporioides s.l. from Wild and Agricultural Landscapes in North America
North America strains of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides s.l. are integrated into a broader phylogenetic framework and three broadly distributed temperate species are identified that could be useful for understanding the microevolutionary forces that may lead to species divergence in this important complex of endophytes and plant pathogens.
