To determine the taxonomic position of wrymouths of the family Cryptacanthodidae in the system of the suborder Zoarcoidei, a study on molecular genetics and comparative morphology of Cryptacanthodes bergi from Peter the Great Bay (Sea of Japan) is conducted. Based on molecular genetic analysis using the genes of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA, Cryptacanthodes bergi is substantially similar to the representatives of the superfamily Stichaeoidae. Thus, the opinion of Makushok on a phylogenetically… Expand

Genetic differentiation of species and taxonomic structure of the superfamily Stichaeoidea (Perciformes: Zoarcoidei)
These investigations suggest that the superfamily Stichaeoidea should include not only the families Sticaeidae, Pholidae, and Ptilichthyidae, but also the Zaproridae and Cryptacanthodidae, while the family Anarhichadidae should be excluded from it. Expand
Timeline of the evolution of eelpouts from the suborder Zoarcoidei (Perciformes) based on DNA variability
Assessment of the DNA divergence rate in the eelpouts conducted in this study is in accordance with known evolutionary scenarios and with key steps of geological development of the World Ocean. Expand
Position of Krusensterniella genus (Gymnelinae, Zoarcidae) in the system of Zoarcidae fish family according to molecular genetic data
Using the analysis of variability of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA genes, it was established that the Krusensterniella genus is included in the Gymnelinae subfamily and, along with the GymnelopsisExpand
Position of neck banded blenny Leptostichaeus pumilus (Perciformes: Zoarcoidei) in the system of the suborder Zoarcoidei as inferred from molecular genetic data
Significant genetic differences between neck banded blenny and the family Stichaeidae correspond to the level of divergence between other families of the suborder Zoarcoidei (Zaproridae, Ptilichthyidae, Pholidae, Cryptacanthodidae, and Bathymasteridae). Expand
Osteology and ontogeny of the wrymouths, genus Cryptacanthodes (Cottiformes: Zoarcoidei: Cryptacanthodidae)
The osteology and aspects of the ontogenetic skeletal development of two species, Cryptacanthodes maculatus from the western North Atlantic and C. aleutensis, suggest a close relationship to at least some of the members of the family Stichaeidae. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and new classification of the genera Eulophias and Zoarchias (PISCES, Zoarcoidei).
The phylogenetic analysis supported the monophyly of the suborder level of the Zoarcoidei, but rejected the previous morphology- and osteology-based classification hypotheses regarding the two genera Eulophias and Zoarchias. Expand
Osteology of the prowfish, Zaprora silenus (Cottiformes: Zoarcoidei: Zaproridae)
The results contradict the findings of previous authors in the structure of the pharyngeal teeth, presence of the pelvic girdle, and the placement of the first dorsal pterygiophore, but indicate that the prowfish is probably most closely related to at least some members of the Stichaeidae. Expand
Diet of an underappreciated benthic intertidal fish, Cryptacanthodes maculatus (Cryptacanthodidae), in eastern Maine, USA
It is discovered through gut-content analysis that a little-known benthic fish, the wrymouth, preyed upon soft-bottom fauna from 8 phyla, 10 classes, and 28 genera in the lower intertidal/ shallow subtidal zone in Cobscook Bay (eastern Maine, USA). Expand

The third part of the work provides a continuation of the annotated list of fish species found in freshwater and coastal brackish waters of Sakhalin Island: 60 species belonging to 42 genera, 21Expand
From scales to armour: scale losses and trunk bony plate gains in ray-finned fishes
The hypothesis that tegument cover is a key evolutionary trait underlying actinopterygian radiation is supported, as evidence is found supporting that after a scale loss event, fishes tend to change their ecology and adopt a benthic lifestyle. Expand


Relationships and position of the genus Neozoarces of the subfamily neozoarcinae in the system of the suborder Zoarcoidei (Pisces, Perciformes) by molecular-genetic data
The results of investigations confirm the viewpoint suggested by Makushok (1961) who included, for the first time, the subfamily Neozoarcinae to the family Zoarcidae on the basis of comparative morphological investigation of these groups. Expand
Phylogenetic relations in the family pholidae (Perciformes: Zoarcoidei) based on genetic and morphological data
Analysis of variation of genes of COI, cytochrome b, and 16S rRNA of mitochondrial DNA indicates different phylogenetic isolation of the family taxa. Expand
Relationships of eelpouts of the genus Zoarces (Zoarcidae, Pisces) inferred from molecular genetic and morphological data
Species divergence in terms of morphological characters was generally consistent with molecular genetic data and confirmed distinct isolation of American eelpout, and especially of blotched eelPout. Expand
Nucleotide sequence variation of the mitochondrial COI gene in several eelpout species of the genus Zoarces (Zoarcidae, Pisces)
The mitochondrial COI gene was for the first time sequenced in eelpout species of the genus Zoarces from the Taui Bay of the Sea of Okhotsk: notched-fin Z. elongatus Kner, 1868 and the new sympatricExpand
Osteology of the Quillfish, Ptilichthys goodei (Perciformes: Zoarcoidei: Ptilichthyidae)
The skeleton of Ptilichthys is described based on newly collected and prepared specimens and the emphasis of the study is on the juvenile skeleton, although the adult skeleton is also described as far as the material allows. Expand
