Essai d’analyse critique des principales hypothèses concernant la phylogenie des Malacostracés (Crustacea, Malacostraca) (2éme partie)

Article keywords: Crustacea, Malacostraca revised systematics, Cephalothoracarida new infraclass, Synneocarida new subcohort

Article: A revised classification of Malacostraca based on a phylogenetic analysis is presented. For this purpose 68 morphological characters were cladistically treated using the parsimony programme Paup 4.10. The system here proposed is a reflection of the cladistic tree produced by TABACARU and DANIELOPOL (2011)

Half a century after Ionescu’s work on Romanian Diplura – A faunal contribution based on material collected from karst areas

Article: The main publication on the Romanian diplurans belongs to M.A. Ionescu who inventoried 22 species mainly from soil and forest litter from 22 collecting points. The further faunal investigation of two caves (Peştera Izvorul Tăuşoarelor and Peştera Movile) allowed Condé to describe other four new taxa, three species and one subspecies. This paper represents the first study at a national level, half century after Ionescu’s contribution.
