Keys to Aid in the Identification of Marine Harpacticoid Copepods. Amendment Bulletin No. 1

page 1

Keys to Aid in the Identification of Marine
Harpacticoid Copepods
Amendment Bulletin No. 1.


The purpose of this bulletin is to illustrate one way in which information that has appeared in the literature since publication of my Keys (Wells, 1976) can be incorporated in them. Also, since the Keys were designed to be useful to non-specialists in harpacticoid taxonomy such bulletins (I hope to publish them at regular intervals) may serve to bring to the user's attention all the recent taxonomic literature. In this first bulletin I take the opportunity of correcting errors in the Keys. Some I have noticed myself but my attention has been drawn to others by several colleagues; to them I extend my grateful thanks. Hopefully few now remain but I would welcome notice of any that have as yet gone undetected.

In this bulletin the word codon is introduced as the term for the set of character states that characterize a taxon or group of taxa.

Family Canuellidae

1.There are two errors in the Key, correct as follows (p.19):
Brianola elegans 6:4:4:4/6:5:4:4/a/3/6
B. sydneyensis 5:4:4:4/6:5:4:4/a/3/6
2.General Notes (p.20): The most recent revision of this family is by Por, 1967, not Por, 1969.

Family Ectinosomidae

1.Family name must be changed to Ectinosomatidae (pp.27-36); the faulty latinization is pointed out by Moore (1976).
2.KGG 1: Arenosetella monensis Moore, 1976, to genus codon (p.28).
3.KGG 100: Ectinosoma soyeri Apostolov, 1975, to genus codon (p.29).

(b) Hastigerella bodini Apostolov, 1974, to codon for Hastigerella a).
5.KGG 500: Noodtiella wellsi Apostolov, 1974, to genus codon (p.35).
6.General Notes (p.36): Pallares (1975b) redescribes the female of Halophytophilus fusiformis.

Family D'Arcythompsoniidae

As Articles 27 and 32(c) of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature forbid the use of an apostrophe D'Arcythompsonia T. Scott must be corrected to Darcythompsonia and the family name changed accordingly. Corrections are required on pp.6, 8, 37, 38 and 39.

Family Parastenhelidae

The description of Parastenhelia reducta Apostolov, 1975, requires a note of this new species in item 7 on p.12. Also, in the Key to Families, item 47 sub. 5 (p.10) now must read "with 4:4-5:4-5 .......", but note that this species will also key out in item 47 sub. 2 and then in item 49 sub. 2, to Thalestridae.

Family Diosaccidae

1.KGG 100: Robertgurneya soyeri Apostolov, 1974 and Robertgurneya sp. Apostolov, 1973, to codon for R. oligochaeta (p.73).
2.KGG 110: Amphiascoides bulbiseta Pallares, 1975e, to codon for Amphiascoides d) (p.74).
3.KGG 210 (p.78):
(a) Typhlamphiascus typhlops: It is now known that P.4 Enp. 2 has an inner seta in populations from the Maldive Islands, Germany, Sweden and Spitzbergen (Becker, 1970). It is not known if Sars' original description is correct. Consequently the species must be added to footnote a).
(b) Typhlamphiascus lamellifer capensis Kunz, 1975, new codon—
(also, this species must be added to KGG 200 (p.76) where it keys out with T. typhlops).
4.KGG 230 and 240: Amphiascus elongatus Ito, 1972: The present codon in KGG 230 (p.80) applies to the female only. The species requires a new codon in KGG 240 (p.81) —
5.KGG 240: Amphiascus longarticulatus Marcus, 1974b, to codon for A. tenuiremis and A. gracilis (p.81).
6.KGG 260: Paramphiascopis triarticulatus Moore, 1976, to genus codon (p.84).
7.KGG 400 (p.86):
(a) Stenhelia (D.) oblonga and S. (D.) elisabethae: Codons for these species are wrong. The correct codon for both is—
(b) S. (D.) normani: Codon on p.86 applies only to subspecies normani. The codon for the other subspecies (n. polluta and n. acutirostris) is—
(c) S. (D.) bifida Coull, 1976, new codon—
page 4
8.KGG 500 (p.88): Stenhelia (D.) palustris bispinosa Bodin, 1970, new codon—
Also, indicate in KGG 400 (p.86) that the codon refers to the nominate subspecies only.

Family Ameiridae

1. Leptomesochra sp. Bodin, 1970 is identified by Bodin (1972) as Mesochra pygmaea; delete from KGG 1 (p.102).
2.KGG 1:
(a) Karllangia tertia Kunz, 1975, to codon for K. psammophila (p.101).
(b) Parapseudoleptomesochra dubia Kunz, 1975, new codon (p. 102) —
3.KGG 300 (pp.107-108):
(a) Sarsameira elegantula Kunz, 1975, new codon—
(b) Stenocopia longiseta: Kunz (1975) describes the female (see footnote a).
(c) Nitocrella stygia Apostolov, 1976 and N. hibernica bulgarica Apostolov, 1976, are not this genus but Nitocra; to codon for Nitocra e).
(d) Psyllocamptus (Langpsyllocamptus) longisetosus Kunz, 1975, new codon—
4.KGG 330 (p.111): Nitocra sewelli huntsmani Kunz, 1976, new codon—
and indicate in KGG 500 (p.117) that the codon refers to the nominate subspecies only.
5.KGG 400 (p.114):
(a) Ameira usitata is redescribed by Kunz (1975): delete from footnote b) (p. 116) and add new codon—
(b) Psyllocamptus (Langpsyllocamptus) quadrispinosus Kunz, 1975, new codon—
6. Psyllocamptus is divided by Kunz (1975) into two sub-genera:
Psyllocamptus s.str. for monachus (KGG 1) (p.101), carolinensis (KGG 1) (p.101), propinquus (KGG 100) (p.105), minutus (KGG 200) (p.106) and bermudae (KGG 200) (p.106);
Langpsyllocamptus nov. for quinquespinosus (KGG 300) (p.108), longisetosus (KGG 300) (see note 3 above), triarticulatus (KGG 400) (p.114) and quadrispinosus (KGG 400) (see note 5 above). page 5
7. Ameiropsis australis Kunz, 1975: Kunz states that P.1 Exp.2 has a very reduced, hair-like inner seta. As this is not a very obvious structure it may be best to place the species in both KGG 300 and 400, with an appropriate note. In KGG 400 (p.114) place a new codon—
In KGG 300 (p.107) A. australis keys out with Sarsameira exilis and S. peresi, s/1:1:1/1:1:1/4:5:5/2. This codon should now lead to KGG 350, a new KGG defined as follows—
KGG 350 — characters
n — number of segments.
2.P.2-P.4 Exp.3
n:n:n — number of setae and/or spines on P.2, P.3 and P.4 respectively.
n :n — number of seteae on Benp. and Exp. respectively.
n :n — number of setae on Benp. and Exp. respectively.
KGG 350
A.1.♀ segs. P.2-P.4 Exp.3 setae P.5 ♀ setae P.5 ♂ setae
9 7:7:7 5:6 5:6 Sarsameira exilis
9 6:7:8 5:6 ? S. peresi
8 6:6:7 5:5 3:5 Ameiropsis australis Kunz, 1975
8.Petkovski (1976) has revised Nitocrella. He removes some species to Parapseudoleptomesochra and erects two new genera, Nitocrellopsis and Stygonitocrella. He describes three new species of Nitocrella s.str. and follows Borutzky (1969) in placing Sterba's (1968) species Spelaeocamptus asiaticus and S. reductus in Nitocrella s.str. However, it must be noted that Borutzky's renaming of S. reductus as N. sterbai is not valid. Borutzky apparently was unaware that Noodt (1957) has already returned Nitocrella reducta (Schäfer) to the genus Nitocra. Sterba's original name must be restored and N. sterbai lapse as a synonym of N. reducta (Sterba). Petkovski's revision requires the following amendments to the Keys—
(a)KGG 1:
(i) Nitocrella d) (p.102) becomes Parapseudoleptomesochra d) with consequent change to footnote d) (p.104).
(ii) Nitocrella g) and h) (p.103) become Stygonitocrella g) and h) respectively, with consequent changes to the appropriate footnotes (p.104).
(iii)On p.102 the species Nitocrella tridens, botosaneanui, subterranea and heruridensis are removed to Parapseudoleptomesochra and the species Nitocrella intermedia, elegans and ionelli are removed to Nitocrellopsis.page 6
(iv)On p.103 the species Nitocrella karamam, colchica, dubia, insularis, ljovuschkini and orghidani are removed to Stygonitocrella.
(b)KGG 600 (pp. 118-119): The following new codons are to be added—
4:4:6/1:1:1/2:2:2/2-3:4/2 :4 Nitocrella caraioni Petkovski, 1976
4:4:6/1:1:1/2:2:2/0:4/0:5 N. motasiPetkovski, 1976
4:4:5/1:1:1/2:2:2/3:4/2:5 N. cubanorum Petkovski, 1976
4:4:5/1:1:1/2:2:2/0:2/? N. asiatica (Sterba, 1968)
4:4:5/1:1:1/2:2:2/4b)/? N. reducta (Sterba, 1968)
with the footnote—
b) p.5 reduced to a single plate.
(c)General Notes item 6 (p.123): This comment now applies to the four genera Nitocrella, Nitocrellopsis, Stygonitocrella and Parapseudoleptomesochra.

2.KGG 100 (p.137): Mesochra bodini Kunz, 1975, new codon—
page 7

Family Cylindropsyllidae

1. Arenopontia stygia: Lindgren (1976) considers that this species may be only an intra-population variant of A. arenarida (KGG 600) (p.149).
2.KGG 600: Arenopontia riedli Lindgren, 1976, to codon for A. arenarida (p. 149).

Family Cletodidae

1.Error in KGG 500 (p.164): Character 5 should read "P.3 ♂ Enp.".
2.Soyer (1975a) describes three new species of Mesocletodes, all of which can be included in KGG 1 (p.154) —
M. carpinei, new codon—
M. bodini, new codon—
M. ameliae, to codon for M. commixtus (p.157).
3. Cletocamptus alburquerquensis: This species is included in Cleto-camptus e) of KGG 1 (p.157) by mistake. Delete from footnote e) (p.159) and add new codon—

Family Laophontidae

1. Laophonte sinifer Kunz, 1975, to codon for Paralaophonte spinicauda in KGG 1200-♀ ♀ (p.182) and to codon for Paralaophonte a) in KGG 1100-♂ ♂ (p.197).
2. Pseudocleta corbula: Present codon in error; correct in KGG 1- ♀ ♀ (p. 172) as follows—
3. Heterolaophonte cambelliensis: P.5 ♂ can have a total of 5 or 7 setae. Therefore this species must be added to footnote k) of KGG 1-♂ ♂ (p.191).
4. Microlaophonte trisetosa Boxshall, 1976, new codons—
KGG 1-♀ ♀ (p.172) —
KGG 1-♂ ♂ (p.188) —
5. Phycolaophonte insularis Pallares, 1975a, new codons—

Family Ancorabolidae

1.p.203 item 1: Delete entirely; A. s. spinifera was described by Norman in 1911 and appears in Lang's Monograph.
2. Laophontodes whitsoni (p.202) is redescribed by Pallares (1975b) who describes P.4 Enp.2 with only 2 setae. Also, there is an error in the existing key which puts L. whitsoni in a codon with L. bicornis and hamatus. Remove from this codon and replace with this new codon—
3:2/2:2/4/6:7:7/2:2 or 4.

Family Latiremidae

Bodin (1975) has formally proposed that Latiremus Bozic is a synonym of Delamarella Chappuis (see p.12 of the Keys). A simple key to the sole genus of the family can be constructed.

The relationships of the family are not at all clear, although it would appear to belong to the Suprafamily Ameiridimorpha Lang. Further research is required and until then it is best to treat the family as incertae sedis in Harpacticoida and thus to place it at the end of the sequence of families.
