Two new species of Tanaopsis (Tanaidacea: Tanaopsidae) from Admiralty Bay (Antarctica), with an identification key

  title={Two new species of Tanaopsis (Tanaidacea: Tanaopsidae) from Admiralty Bay (Antarctica), with an identification key},
  author={Juliana Lopes Segadilha and Catarina De L. Ara{\'u}jo-Silva},
Two new species of family Tanaopsidae, genus Tanaopsis, from Admiralty Bay (Antarctica) are herein described. Tanaopsis brevicorpus sp. nov. displays antennule article 1 about 1.5 times as long as wide, carapace as long as first three pereonites, both rami of uropod biarticulate with fusion line, and pleotelson short, more than twice longer than wide. Tanaopsis bamberi sp. nov. resembles other Antarctic species T. kerguelenensis in its habitus, antennule long and uropod uniarticulate. However… Expand

Two new species of Colletteidae (Crustacea: Tanaidacea: Tanaidomorpha) from Bransfield Strait, Antarctica
The number of species of Tanaidacea recorded from Antarctica increases to 162, while the colletteids are now represented by 16 species, and the diagnosis of the genus Filitanais is herein modified. Expand
A new species of Tanaopsis (Crustacea: Tanaidacea) from Japan, with remarks on the functions of serial ridges and grooves on the appendages
A nearly complete nucleotide sequence for the 18S rRNA gene in T. japonica is determined and it is determined that the ridges and grooves on the antenna and antennule may also function in producing sound. Expand
Tanaidacea fauna (Peracarida, Crustacea) from the shallow sublittoral zone of Admiralty Bay, King George Island, Antarctica, with new records
Data suggest that the Tanaidacea assemblages in Admiralty Bay have very heterogeneous spatial distribution, reflecting the variety of habitats present in this region. Expand


Two new species and a new genus of the suborder Tanaidomorpha (Crustacea: Tanaidacea) from Californian waters
A new genus and species of tanaidacean, Scoloura phillipsi (family Anarthruridae Lang, 1971: subfamily Akanthophoreinae Sieg, 1986) is described from Santa Monica Bay and Santa Maria Basin,Expand
Tanaidacean Phylogeny - the Second Step: the Basal Paratanaoidean Families (Crustacea: Malacostraca)
This study should be regarded as a platform for more comprehensive analyses and systematic conclusions for the Tanaidacea and suggests a re- vised method - the 'Restricted taxa analysis' - for resolving diffi cult datasets of the 'many-taxa-few-characters' type. Expand
Taxonomische und phylogenetische Untersuchungen über die Tanaidaceen (Crustacea)
The taxonomy of the genera mentioned in the title is discussed as well as the taxonomic position of Typhlotanais longidactylus Shiino, and it is proposed that Leptochelia, Heterotanais, Hargeria, PseudoleptOChelia and PseudonototanaIS should be grouped together in the new family Leptokheliidae.

Tanaidacean phylogeny, the first step: the superfamily Paratanaidoidea
The phylogeny of the superfamily Paratanaidoidea is addressed using computer-assisted parsimony methods and many tanaidacean names have been corrected to make them agree with the presumed Latin stem ‘tanaid-’. Expand
Abstract A summary of terminologies and nomenclature currently or previously employed to describe tanaidacean appendages and somites are presented together with a proposed new standardizedExpand
