  • Thirty new species consisting of 24 poecilostomatoid and six siphonostomatoid copepods are described as associates of marine invertebrates from the Moluccas. New taxa in the order Poecilostomatoida are Amarda curvus n. sp., Anchimolgus gracilipes n. sp., A. partenuipes n. sp., A. parangensis n. sp., A. hastatus n. sp., Andrianellus papillipes n. sp., Exodontomolgus communis n. gen. n. sp., Jamescookina moluccensis n. sp., Odontomolgus flammeus n. sp., O. parvus n. sp., O. pavonus n. sp., Paranchimolgus parallelus n. gen. n. sp., and Scyphuliger karangmiensis n. sp. in the family Anchimolgidae; Enalcyonium circulatum n. sp. and E. ceramensis n. sp. in the family Lamippidae; Parastericola rimosus n. gen. n. sp. in the family Lichomolgidae; Pseudanthessius truncus n. sp. and P. planus n. sp. in the family Pseudanthessiidae; Acanthomolgus gomumuensis n. sp., A. dispadactylus n. sp., A. bandaensis n. sp., A. ambonensis n. sp., Kombia avitus n. sp. and Pionomolgus moluccensis n. sp. in the family Rhynchomolgiae. New taxa in the order Siphonostomatoida are Cryptopontius acutus n. sp. in the family Artotrogidae; Asteropontius fungicola n. sp., A. gonioporae n. sp., Collocheres humesi n. sp. and C. amicus n. sp. in the family Asterocheridae; and Molucomes ovatus n. gen. n. sp. in the family Stellicomitidae. Species new to the Moluccas and new host records are also included. Lists of 263 species of associated copepods known from the Moluccas and their 135 species of invertebrate hosts are provided.

  • Three new species of poecilostomatoid copepods are described as associates of the scleractinian coral Gardineroseris planulata (Dana) from the Moluccas: Sociellus geminus n. sp., Odontomolgus mucosus n. sp. and O. unioviger n. sp. The genus Sociellus is transferred from the Rhynchomolgidae to the Anchimolgidae. The previously described four species of the genus Paramolgus (P. angustus, P. eparmatoides, P. gibberulus, and P. setellus) of the Rhynchomolgidae, associated with Gardineroseris planulata, are transferred as well to the genus Anchimolgus in the Anchimolgidae.

  • Four new species of the genus Panjakus (Copepoda, Cyclopoida, Anchimolgiae) are described as associates of scleractinian corals from the eastern Ceram, the Moluccas: P fastigatus and P. parvipes from Hydnophora microconos (Lamarck), and P. saccipes and P. iratus from Platygyra ryukyuensis Yabe and Sugiyama. A key to 11 known species of Panjakus is provided.

  • Spongicola tropicanus, a new genus and species of the family Eunicicolidae, and Asterocheres brevisurculus, a new species of the family Asterocheridae, are described as copepods associated with the sponge Phyllospongia foliascens (Pallas) from the Moluccas. Spongicola is the second genus of the family and may be characterized by a two-segmented prosome, the absence of leg 3, and the presence of leg 5. Asterocheres brevisurculus may be charecterized by one-segmented mandibular palp, short oral siphon, and 19-segmented female antennule.

  • The objective of this study was to compare the wood anatomical characteristics of local tree species in Moluccas, Indonesia i.e., Moluccan ironwood (Intsia bijuga), linggua (Pterocarpus indicus), red meranti (Shorea parvifolia), and gofasa (Vitex cofassus). Qualitative evaluation was conducted by observing the anatomical structure in cross, radial, and tangential sections of each sample. For the quantitative evaluation, the dimensions of vessels, rays, and fibers were measured. Qualitative evaluation showed that crystals were observed in Moluccan ironwood, linggua, and gofasa, while resin canals were only observed in red meranti. Tyloses were frequently observed in gofasa but infrequently observed in linggua and red meranti. Quantitative evaluation showed that Moluccan ironwood with the higher density had thicker fiber wall, higher quantity of ray number, and wider rays than the other species. Red meranti had higher values of ray height and fiber length than the other three species. The results also revealed that linggua showed the highest values of relative crystallinity and crystallite width. Red meranti and gofasa showed similar values of relative crystallinity and crystallite width, while Moluccan ironwood showed the lowest values. The basic qualitative and quantitative anatomical characteristics discussed could provide useful information for further utilizations of such wood species.
