The presence of a pair of postventral plates, widely attached to each other and located under the posterior-most trunk tergite and the base of the tailspine, indicates a phylogenetic relationship with the enigmatic group Aglaspidida.
Ads help cover our server costs. The genus Lepidochitona Gray, has two species in the Caribbean: This book gives an authoritative account of leech neurobiology from the biological viewpoint, with emphasis on the neuronal basis and the evolution of leech behaviour.
This new discovery strongly suggests that the possession of only a single calcareous shell plate and the presence of unmineralised sclerites are plesiomorphic an ancestral trait for the molluscan crown.
Man does not live by science alone; Final considerations; Final words; Acknowledgements; Bibliography. A taxonomic revision of this euarthropod group indicates that the most accurate name and authorship combination correspond to Aglaspidida Walcott, Integral to such studies are anomalocaridids, a Click here to sign up.
Help Center Find new research papers in: A spinose appendage fragment of a problematic arthropod from the Early Ordovician of Morocco. Here we describe a new early sachitid, Calvapilosa kroegeri gen. It also differs from L.
Invertebrados Research Papers –
Although recent work has focused on the anomalocaridid head, the nature of their trunk has been debated widely. We describe a third species: A new species of the chiton Lepidochitona Polyplacophora: Exceptionally preserved fossils provide crucial insights into extinct body plans and organismal evolution.
These genera document the stepwise evolution of the aculiferan body plan from forms with a single, almost conchiferan-like shell through camacno taxa such as Halkieria, to the eight-plated crown-group aculiferans. A highly spinose fragment of a possibly raptorial appendage from the Arenig Early Ordovician of the Upper Fezouata Formation north of Zagora, southeastern Morocco is described as the arthropod Pseudoangustidontus duplospineus gen.
Molluscs, one of the most disparate animal phyla, radiated rapidly during the early Cambrian period approximately — million years ago Ma.
The leech, once so prominent in the history of medicine, is again being used widely in modern hospitals, especially in microsurgery. Here we describe a new machaeridian with preserved soft parts, including parapodia and chaetae, from the Upper Tremadoc of Morocco, demonstrating the annelid affinity of the group. However, the presence of a prominent cephalon and only six trunk tergites in the new genus deviates from the organization of all other known aglaspidid species, notably extending the known range of morphological disparity of the group.
This discovery shows that a lineage of annelids evolved a dorsal skeleton of calcareous plates early in their history; it also resolves the affinities of a group of problematic Palaeozoic invertebrates previously known only from isolated elements and occasional skeletal assemblages.
Molluscs, one of the most disparate animal phyla, radiated rapidly during the early Cambrian period approximately — million This three-volume work provides a complete study of this well-known group of animals, dealing with every level of their biological organization, from the molecular to the zoological.
The conodonts provide a classic example, their The evolution of giant filter-feeding anomalocaridids may reflect the establishment of highly developed planktic ecosystems during the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event.
Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. Unlike other anomalocaridids, the Fezouata taxon combines head appendages convergently adapted for filter-feeding with an unprecedented body length exceeding 2m, indicating a new direction in the feeding ecology of the clade.
Lepidochitona rufoi differs from both in having a finely granulose tegmentum, smaller size, a very fine central radula tooth, and different anal plate form and color pattern. The exquisite preservation of most organisms suggests rapid and in-situ burial of large, particularly dense benthic communities largely dominated by echinoderms.
A ‘key’ to the leeches of each zoogeographical region of the world and an extensive bibliography volume 3 are included.
Sawyer, Roy T, Its flattened body is covered by hollow spinose sclerites, and a smooth, ventral girdle flanks an extensive mantle cavity. Since they were first described years ago machaeridians have been allied with barnacles, echinoderms, molluscs or annelids.
However, megalograptids and Angustidontus both have a lower spine count, while the latter also carries only a single row of spines. The overall morphology of Brachyaglaspis most closely resembles that of the ‘Ordovician-type’ aglaspidids, more specifically the late Cambrian — Early Ordovician genus Tremaglaspis.
Exceptionally preserved fossils from the Palaeozoic era provide crucial insights into arthropod evolution, with recent discoveries bringing phylogeny and character homology into sharp focus.
He also significantly extends the argument by proposing that leeches are also allied to the Uniramia. The new material shows that each trunk segment bears a separate dorsal and ventral pair of flaps, with a series of setal blades attached at the base of the dorsal flaps. Machaeridians, which are virtually ubiquitous as shell plates in benthic marine shelly assemblages ranging from Early Ordovician Late Tremadoc to Carboniferous, have proved no less enigmatic.
The major scientific relevance of these faunas is outlined herein for example their palaeoecological and palaeogeographical implications. The diverse and wide-ranging nature of the book should make it of interest to research workers and students in various disciplines, particularly medicine, molecular biology, neurobiology, zoology and marine biology. Imvertebrados systematic affinities of several Palaeozoic fsiles taxa were only resolved when their soft-tissue morphology was revealed by the discovery of exceptionally preserved specimens.
In recent years the leech has been the subject of much neurobiological research, but such research has tended to emphasize the neurophysiological aspects.
Ischnochitonidae from Puerto Rico. This proposal cammacho a major intrusion into the traditional classification of the animal kingdom, and as such is likely to gain considerable attention. El estadio del subimago se caracteriza por tener alas de color blancuzco Fig.
The leech, once so prominent in the history of Because no known arthropod displays a morphology closely comparable to that of Pseudoangustidontus gen. Revival in the use of leeches coincides with recent revelations about the rich diversity of pharmacologically active peptides secreted by the leech, including the powerful anticoagulant Hirudin which was discovered in
