Histodermella kagigunensis sp. nov. from the Gulf of Alaska and Aleutian Islands; first records of the genus from the North Pacific

  • Helmut Lehnert (a1), Robert P. Stone (a2) and Wolfgang Heimler (a3)
Abstract

The genus Histodermella grows to four species with the addition of H. kagigunensis sp. nov. from the North Pacific. The new species is described and compared with all congeners. Histodermella kagigunensis shows affinities to H. ingolfi Lundbeck 1910 as it has the same spicule types but differs clearly in size, habitus and the dimensions of two occurring spicule types. The discovery of H. kagigunensis represents the first record of the genus Histodermella in the North Pacific Ocean.
