TitleRedefinition of the genus Doridicola Leydig, 1853, synonymy of Metaxymolgus Humes & Stock, 1972, and establishment of a new genus, Critomolgus (Copepoda, Poecilostomatoida, Lichomolgidae)
JournalBulletin Zoologisch Museum
AbstractThe type-species of the genus Doridicola Leydig, 1853, D. agilis Leydig, 18 has been re-examined. The armature of the exopod of the fourth leg of D. agilis is II,I,5, thus identical to that of the genus Metaxymolgus Humes & Stock, 1972. Metaxymolgus is synonymized with Doridicola. Those species formerly attributed to Doridicola but having an armature of III,I,5 on the endopod of the fourth leg, are placed in a new genus, Critomolgus.
