  author={Maickel Armenteros and Alexei Ruiz-Abierno and Wilfrida Decraemer},
  journal={European journal of taxonomy},
The taxonomy of the family Desmodoridae (Nematoda: Desmodorida) is partially revised based on morphology. The diagnoses of the Desmodoridae and the subfamilies Desmodorinae and Spiriniinae are emended to accommodate re-analyzed morphological features. Eight known species are redescribed and the implication of the new findings for the taxonomy of the group is discussed. Amphispira and Metadesmodora are confirmed as genera inquirendae. Alaimonema and Sigmophoranema , and their corresponding type…

A new genus Cornurella gen. n. (Nematoda, Desmodoridae, Filipjev, 1922) from Campos Basin, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The new genus was considered most closely related to Desmodorella because both genera share the strong cuticular annulations of the body wall and ornamentation with longitudinal rows of spines, but differs in the number of rows and the well-defined cephalic capsule ornamented with a dorsolateral pair and a ventrolateral pair of horn-like protrusions at its base.

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.

A checklist of suctorian epibiont ciliates (Ciliophora) found on meiobenthic marine nematodes

A compilation of the ciliated suctorian species found on marine meiobenthic nematodes as epibiont has been carried out based on published records, finding any regularity in localization were not observed in the representatives of genera Trematosoma and Loricophrya, which form ciliary, swimming swarmers.

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