Potential effects of electric organ discharges by Torpedo spp. (Torpediniformes: Torpedinidae) on their trophically transmitted parasites.10.1111/1749-4877.12532Members of the Torpedinidae (torpedoes) and Hypnidae (coffin ray) use electric organ discharges (EOD) to stun or kill their prey before consumption. We investigated whether EOD could also negatively affect the helminth larvae infecting these preys through a surrogate model: we applied electric discharges to individuals of blue whiting, Micromesistius poutassou, that harbored live larvae of Anisakis. Larval mortality throughout a 6-h period was significantly higher in the treatment group, suggesting that EODs could significantly hamper helminth recruitment. We then tested whether torpedinids and hypnids ("strong-EOD" families) harbored species-poor helminth (cestode) assemblages compared with "weak-EOD" Torpediniformes (Narcidae and Narkidae) and other Batoidea. Based on comparisons on estimated species diversity and mean species richness of tapeworms at host individual level we found that (i) Torpediniformes had the lowest tapeworm diversity of all Batoidea orders; (ii) Torpedo spp. consistently had the lowest mean cestode richness at host individual level, and this could not be related to other host factors influencing cestode diversity in chondrichthyans, that is body size, trophic level or dietary breath. However, a preliminary comparison between "strong-EOD" and "weak-EOD" Torpediniformes did not detect clear differences of cestode richness. Thus, evidence supporting an unambiguous contribution of EODs to depauperate cestode assemblages requires further research.© 2021 International Society of Zoological Sciences, Institute of Zoology/Chinese Academy of Sciences and John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd.Penadés-SuayJaimeJMarine Zoology Unit, Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology, University of Valencia, València, Spain.LAMNA Association for the study of elasmobranchs from the Valencian Community, València, Spain.RegachoTaniaTMarine Zoology Unit, Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology, University of Valencia, València, Spain.AznarFrancisco JavierFJMarine Zoology Unit, Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology, University of Valencia, València, Spain.engJournal Article20210316AustraliaIntegr Zool1014924201749-4869IMAnisakisBatoideaEOD behaviorTorpediniformTorpedocestode2021318602021318602021317713aheadofprint3372875510.1111/1749-4877.12532REFERENCES, 2021</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>4.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>Phylogenetic significance of clasper morphology of electric rays (Chondrichthyes: Batoidea: Torpediniformes).</a><a href=http://ubio.org/tools/linkit.php?map%5B%5D=all&link_type=2&url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Moreira RA, de Carvalho MR<br><font color=gray><i>Journal of morphologyJ MorpholPhylogenetic significance of clasper morphology of electric rays (Chondrichthyes: Batoidea: Torpediniformes).438-44810.1002/jmor.21315Torpediniformes (electric rays) is a monophyletic group strongly supported by morphological and molecular phylogenetic studies. The claspers of electric rays, however, are poorly documented in comparation to the clasper of other batoids, especially skates, and the knowledge of their anatomical variation is restricted to the description of a few species. The present article analyzes the external and skeletal clasper anatomy of electric rays and reports newly discovered characters that can be useful for taxonomic diagnoses and higher-level systematic studies. The family Torpedinidae exclusively presents the integumental flap, a poorly calcified clasper skeleton, and a dorsal marginal cartilage with a medial flange on its distal portion. Derived or diagnostic characters were not found in the clasper of the reportedly nonmonophyletic families Narcinidae and Narkidae; however, the claspers of species and genera of narcinids and narkids present different anatomical patterns that can be useful for taxonomic and phylogenetic studies.© 2021 Wiley Periodicals LLC.MoreiraRenan ARA0000-0002-9908-6259Departamento de Zoologia, Instituto de Biociências, Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.de CarvalhoMarcelo RMRDepartamento de Zoologia, Instituto de Biociências, Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.engJournal ArticleResearch Support, Non-U.S. Gov't20210109United StatesJ Morphol04061250022-2887IMAnimal Structuresanatomy & histologyAnimalsCartilageanatomy & histologyPhylogenyTorpedoanatomy & histologyclassificationcopulatory organhomologymorphologytorpediniformsvariation202008052020110620201228202012316020216256020201230524ppublish3337723110.1002/jmor.21315REFERENCES, 2021</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>5.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>Description of Echthrogaleus spinulus n. sp.
