The Discovery of a New Species, Lamispina ammophila sp. nov. from Shimoda, Japan

Authors:Timothy Straus, David J. Morris, Keiichi Kakui

Abstract


A new species of Flabelligerid polychaete, Lamissina ammophila sp. is described near the Shimoda coast in Japan in November. This species can be distinguished from other animals by the following characteristics: i) the dorsal region of the cadaver is attached by sediment particles; ii) lamispines without teeth, the fourth generation and later generations, and iii) The cage is 1.5–2.0 times the width of the body. A partial mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene sequence from this subtype is provided as a DNA barcode for the new species.
