Morphologicalcomparisons reveal considerable affinities between Bothrops ammodytoides , Bothrops pictus , Bothrops

MORPHOLOGICALCOMPARISON BETWEEN THE MONODELPHIC GENERA MONOTRICHODOR US AND ALLOTRICHODOR US WITH SOME REMARKS ON THEIR RELATION TO BOTH DIDELPHIC GENERA OF THE TRICHODORIDAE (NEMATODA) BY WILFRIDA DECRAEMER Koninklijk Belgisch Instituut voor Natuurwetenschappen, Vautierstraat 29, B-1040
Rochinia hystrix (Stimpson, ) is reported herein for the first time from the southwestern Atlantic (Canopus Bank, off the coast of Ceará, Brazil, between 240 and 260 m). This species was previously known from the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea (Antilles), between 150 and 708 m. Rochinia hystrix and immatures of R. tanneri (Smith, ) resemble each other and their geographical and bathymetric ranges partially overlap, so that morphological criteria are herein provided to distinguish between the two species. The opportunity is also taken to elaborate on the status of the type material of R. tanneri.

Morphologicalcomparison between A. boukorninense n. sp. and A. decorum .— The morphologicalcomparison was conducted on seven populations: five Sicilian populations of A. decorum (Collesano, Porto di Tindari, Palazzo Adriano, Mellili and Epipoli) and three Tunisian populations of A. boukorninense n. sp

Samples and sequence inquest
Fifty-one specimens of green pitvipers, all collected from Yunnan, were sequenced and
) was in clade B (supplementary fig. S1).
We focused on the comparison between clades, and compared morphological data of specimens between clades A and B, because the two morphs were included in both clades. Morphological data of the two morphs and immature specimens

The traditional hypothesis that the Moldavian steppe viper is a secondary intergradation between Vipera (ursinii) renardi and V. ursinii rakosiensis could not be verified. Although morphologically simi- lar (but not
