Typhlonesticus gocmeni sp n., a new cave-dwelling blind spider species from the Aegean region of Turkey (Araneae, Nesticidae)

Ribera, Carles
Elverici, Mert
Kunt, Kadir Bogac
A new species of the troglobitic spider genus Typhlonesticus is described from specimens found in Keloglan Cave (Denizli Province, Dodurgalar Town), Turkey. Typhlonesticus gocmeni sp. n. is described on the basis of both sexes; and its phylogenetic relationships with closely related European genera and species are discussed based on morphological and molecular data (the cox1, rrnL and H3 genes). Three new combinations are proposed: Typhlonesticus idriacus (Roewer, 1931), comb. n., Typhlonesticus morisii (Brignoli, 1975) comb. n. and Typhlonesticus obcaecatus (Simon, 1907), comb. n. all ex Nesticus.


Discordance between ventral colour and mtDNA haplotype in the water frog Rana (ridibunda) caralitana, 1988 Arikan
Akın, Cigdem; Bilgin, Metin; Bilgin, Cemal Can (Brill, 2010-01-01)
The water frog form caralitana was first described as a subspecies of Rana ridibunda by Arikan (1988) from southwestern Turkey. Its orange ventral colour has been used as a diagnostic character since its description. After testing for a correlation between body size and ventral colour, we compared mtDNA and venter colour of adult specimens from 27 localities to assess the validity of this character for systematics of Anatolian water frogs. We mapped the distribution of each category and tested whether there...
A new species, Acantholimon birandii (Plumbaginaceae), from the Central Anatolian Steppe in Turkey
Doğan, Musa (Wiley, 2001-01-01)
A new species, Acantholimon birandii, is described and illustrated from Karaman, Turkey.
A new species of Acantholimon Boiss. sect. Glumaria Boiss. (Plumbaginaceae) from Elazig, Turkey
Dogan, M; Akaydin, G (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2005-11-01)
A new species, Acantholimon evrenii sp. nov. is described and illustrated for the first time in sect. Glumaria from Turkey. The species is confined to B7 Elazig in East Anatolia where it grows on rocky mountain steppes. The diagnostic morphological characters from closely related species are given, along with a discussion dealing with its taxonomic relationship. Its conservation status is indicated. A revised key is also provided for the Acantholimon species with heterophyllous leaves, two or more flowered ...
Morphology, anatomy, palynology and nutlet micromorphology of the rediscovered Turkish endemic Salvia ballsiana (Lamiaceae) and their taxonomic implications
Kahraman, Ahmet; Doğan, Musa; Celep, Ferhat; AKAYDIN, GALİP; KOYUNCU, MEHMET (Wiley, 2010-01-01)
Salvia ballsiana (Rech. fil.) Hedge, previously known only from the type gathering, is a local endemic species from Turkey. The species was first collected from Golbasi (Malatya) by E. K. Balls in 1935, and was not collected again until 2008, when we found it in Gerger (Adiyaman). The diagnostic morphological characters of this rare endemic species are discussed, including its anatomical, palynological and nutlet micromorphological features. Morphological characteristics of leaves, calyces, corollas and typ...
Genetic impacts of Anacapa deer mice reintroductions following rat eradication
Ozer, Fusun; Gellerman, Holly; Ashley, Mary V. (Wiley, 2011-09-01)
The Anacapa deer mouse is an endemic subspecies that inhabits Anacapa Island, part of Channel Islands National Park, California. We used mitochondrial DNA cytochrome c oxidase subunit II gene (COII) and 10 microsatellite loci to evaluate the levels of genetic differentiation and variation in similar to 1400 Anacapa deer mice sampled before and for 4 years after a black rat (Rattus rattus) eradication campaign that included trapping, captive holding and reintroduction of deer mice. Both mitochondrial and mic...
