Abstract

Specimens of a deep-living sabellid polychaete of the genus Perkinsiana Knight-Jones dredged in Antarctic waters were found to be parasitised by an undescribed species of the cyclopoid copepod genus Sabellacheres M. Sars, 1862. Specimens of both sexes were studied using light microscopy and SEM, and compared with its congeners. The new species, Sabellacheres antarcticus n. sp., can be distinguished from its congeners by the shape and proportions of the body and brood-pouch, its 4-segmented antennae, the shape and length of the distal process of the second antennular segment, the position of leg 3, and the structure of the male maxilliped. This is only the second record of a species of this genus from the southern hemisphere. The new species was found on a single host species, as is typical for most species of Sabellacheres. A key for the identification of both sexes of the species of Sabellacheres is included.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 August 2012.
All research outputs
#9,841,899
of 12,323,473 outputs
Outputs from Systematic Parasitology
#336
of 463 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#89,031
of 123,445 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Systematic Parasitology
#2
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,323,473 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 463 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.5. This one is in the 17th percentile – i.e., 17% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 123,445 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 14th percentile – i.e., 14% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
