Many, mostly older, names of animal species are nomenclaturally problematic, either because their orthography is unstable, or they cannot be linked reliably to a taxonomic identity, due to the lack of recognisable descriptions and/or types. Yet, they represent available (sensu International Code of Zoological Nomenclature) names and must be taken into account in zoological works. This situation, with available senior, yet dubious names confounding nomenclature, is undesirable. It creates… Expand

The List of Available Names (LAN): A new generation for stable taxonomic names in zoology?
Abstract The List of Available Names in Zoology (LAN) is an inventory of names with specific scope in time and content, presented and approved in parts, and constituted as a cumulative index of namesExpand
The Taxonomic Significance of Species That Have Only Been Observed Once: The Genus Gymnodinium (Dinoflagellata) as an Example
TLDR
The majority of oncers in the microbial eukaryote genus Gymnodinium were poorly described and their identity is ambiguous, and it is argued that the genus contains only 234 identifiable species. Expand
On Pulchritia new genus, with a reappraisal of the genera of Trichotriidae (Rotifera, Monogononta)
TLDR
It is concluded that the species and the closely related South American Macrochaetus kostei belong to a new genus of Trichotriidae; the two offer a rare example of African-South American vicariance in rotifers. Expand
Combined Molecular-Morphological Approach to Species Complexes of Brachionid and Lecanid Rotifers (Eurotatoria : Monogononta : Brachionidae and Lecanidae in Thailand
This study aims to analyze potential species complexes of rotifers within the families Brachionidae and Lecanidae, to test the hypothesis whether cryptic diversity is indeed as common as is being putExpand
Morphological and taxonomic demarcation of Brachionus asplanchnoidis Charin within the Brachionus plicatilis cryptic species complex (Rotifera, Monogononta)
TLDR
Combining aspects of both the dorsal and ventral surfaces clearly discriminated B. asplanchnoidis from the rest of the large-type members, and this approach may prove useful in taxonomic studies of other cryptic species with relatively few morphological features. Expand
Reproductive isolation, morphological and ecological differentiation among cryptic species of Euchlanis dilatata, with the description of four new species
TLDR
An integrated approach that included molecular and ecological characters as well as morphological features was used to gain a better estimate of species diversity and to improve the understanding of the speciation process within rotifers. Expand
New Indomalayan Nebularmis species (Heterotardigrada: Echiniscidae) provoke a discussion on its intrageneric diversity
TLDR
Using populations representing several species that originated from the Indomalayan region, phylogenetic affinities within Nebularmis are reconstructed, a recently erected genus within the Echiniscus lineage that can be phenotypically differentiated based on minute details of their dorsal sculpture and claws. Expand
A commentary on the XIIIth International Rotifer Symposium (Shillong, 2012)
TLDR
The development of rotifer research as viewed through the lens of more than 35 years of IRS is considered, where the emphasis has swung to a balance of both basic (e.g., aging, ecology, genetics, and taxonomy) and applied research. Expand
Reverse taxonomy applied to the Brachionus calyciflorus cryptic species complex: Morphometric analysis confirms species delimitations revealed by molecular phylogenetic analysis and allows the (re)description of four species
TLDR
This study applies a reverse taxonomy approach to the Brachionus calyciflorus species complex, a commonly studied freshwater monogonont rotifer, and confirms the existence of four cryptic species that have been recently suggested by a molecular study. Expand
Making species checklists understandable to machines – a shift from relational databases to ontologies
TLDR
Two models for expressing taxonomic information in the form of species checklists are introduced and meta-ontology TaxMeOn is introduced to model the same content as Semantic Web ontologies where taxa are identified using HTTP URIs. Expand

TLDR
A robust discussion involving a broad spectrum of practicing zoological taxonomists is required over the next several years to define the specific implementation aspects of ZooBank. Expand
Annotated checklist of the rotifers (Phylum Rotifera), with notes on nomenclature, taxonomy and distribution
TLDR
An annotated checklist of the Rotifera is presented, giving the global distribution of the valid species and describing features of an on-line, global names database of the taxon, on which this checklist is based. Expand
Phylogeny and classification of the Conochilidae (Rotifera, Monogononta, Flosculariacea)
TLDR
The results indicate that Conochilidae share a body form with Flosculariidae, but they possess a trophal structure which clearly differentiates them from all other FlOSculariacea; thus, the diagnosis of the family ConochILidae is amended to incorporate morphological characters of the trophi. Expand
ROTIFER LOOK-ALIKES : TWO SPECIES OF COLURELLA ARE CILIATED PROTOZOANS
TLDR
Although no type specimens were deposited for either species, published drawings or photographs provide enough evidence to conclude that both of these "rotifers" are in fact ciliated protists of the family Dysteriidae, probably of the genus Dysteria. Expand
A biogeographical analysis of rotifers of the genus Trichocerca Lamarck, 1801 (Trichocercidae, Monogononta, Rotifera), with notes on taxonomy
An analysis of distribution patterns reveals a unique group of Nearctic endemics in Trichocerca Lamarck, 1801. This group, comprising 13.4% of all taxa analysed in the genus, is of diverse origin. AExpand
An analysis of species boundaries and biogeographic patterns in a cryptic species complex: the rotifer--Brachionus plicatilis.
TLDR
Different methods of empirically delimiting species boundaries in the salt water rotifer Brachionus plicatilis are explored by comparing reproductive data to phylogenetic data, indicating the existence of at least 14 species--the highest estimate for the group thus far. Expand
Cryptic speciation in Lecane bulla (Monogononta: Rotifera) in Chihuahuan Desert waters
TLDR
The Chihuahuan Desert is known for its high biodiversity in both terrestrial and aquatic systems, and cryptic speciation is being detected with increasing frequency in rotifers, including the monogonont Lecane bulla. Expand

SPECIATION IN ANCIENT CRYPTIC SPECIES COMPLEXES: EVIDENCE FROM THE MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF BRACHIONUS PLICATILIS (ROTIFERA)
TLDR
Analysis of rotifer resting eggs from 27 salt lakes in the Iberian Peninsula plus lakes from four continents revealed nine genetically divergent lineages and sequence divergence estimates indicate that the B. plicatilis complex began diversifying many millions of years ago, yet has showed relatively high levels of morphological stasis.

Cryptic diversity in the genus Adineta Hudson & Gosse, 1886 (Rotifera: Bdelloidea: Adinetidae): a DNA taxonomy approach
TLDR
Hidden diversity is estimated in a genus of bdelloid rotifers, Adineta, using a coalescent approach to infer evolutionarily significant units from a phylogenetic tree obtained from cytochrome oxidase I sequences. Expand
