My Russian isn't great, but I'd say your first interpretation is
correct. There is no "and" between "kozhnykh cheshui" ("of dermal
scales") and "razdelennykh na shchetinki" ("divided into bristles").
Perhaps I'm wrong, though, since your second translation seems to
correspond more closely to the Godefroit et al. abstract from last
year's SVP meeting.
