<strong>STING NEMATODE BELONOLAIMUS MALUCEROI (TYLENCHIDA: BELONOLAIMIDAE) FROM MEXICO</strong> [BELONOLAIMUS MALUCEROI (TYLENCHIDA: BELONOLAIMIDAE) DE MEXICO]
AbstractIn September 2012, an Amendment of Articles 8, 9, 10, 21 and 78 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN) was published in order to expand and refine methods of publication allowed by the Code. The amended Article 8.5.3 states that in order for an electronic-published work to be available, it must be registered in the ZooBank and contain evidence in the work that such registration has occurred. The requirements for electronic publications should include clear evidence in the work of the date of publication with proof of the occurred registration in ZooBank.
In 2012 Cid Del Prado Vera and Subbotin (2012) published an article with description of a new species Belonolaimus maluceroi in electronic [online] version of Nematropica and this work itself was not registered in ZooBank. Here we provide the registration (urn:lsid:zoobank.org:pub:FE57C634-427A-4147-A476-7695A943F062) of a short note with description of Belonolaimus maluceroi to meet the requirements of article 8.5.3 of ICZN.
Belonolaimus maluceroi was found in a tropical forest at La Mancha, Experimental Ecological Station of the Ecology Institute, Veracruz State, Mexico. Females were characterized by body length less of than 2 mm; head set off and divided by longitudinal grooves into four separated sectors; stylet length less than 103 μm; excretory pore less than 195 μm from the anterior end; vulval lips not protruding; vagina without sclerotized pieces; tail hemispherical and 50-96 μm in length. Male head was similar to those for female; spicules slightly curved, less than 34 μm long; gubernaculum 11-15 μm. Lateral field had one lateral line, which started after the cephalic constriction and can reach tenth or 24th annulus from the posterior body end in females or males, respectively.
