Filling a gap in the phylogeny of flatworms: relationships within the Rhabdocoela (Platyhelminthes), inferred from 18S ribosomal DNA sequences
TLDR
The phylogeny of the Rhabdocoela, a species‐rich taxon of free‐living flatworms, is reconstructed based on complete 18S rDNA sequences, and three existing and four new taxon names are formally defined following the rules of the Phylocode. Expand
Global diversity of free living flatworms (Platyhelminthes, “Turbellaria”) in freshwater
TLDR
Diversity of turbellarian species by biogeographical regions is reviewed, suggesting that species richness may be at least one order of magnitude higher than the currently reported number of species. Expand
The importance of turbellarians in the marine meiobenthos: a review
TLDR
Most turbellarian species may be considered as predators and in this respect may take the place occupied by macrofaunal species in muddy sediments. Expand
TURBELLARIA FROM SOMALIA
TLDR
The genus Pseudomonocelis Meixner, 1943 is treated in a monographic way, with the provisory re-introduction of P. agilis (Schulze, 1851), including two new species from the neighbourhood of Mogadiscio, Somalia, P. pardii and P. cavernicola. Expand
Anatomy and Systematics of Some Polycystididae (Turbellaria, Kalyptorhynchia) from the Pacific and S. Atlantic
TLDR
The taxonomy of the genera and species is discussed and viewpoints are presented on evolutionary trends and homologous atrial organs in the family Polycystididae. Expand
Primary homology assessment of structures in the female atrial system among species of the Polycystididae (Rhabditophora, Eukalyptorhynchia)
TLDR
This morphological review of the female atrial system of members of the Polycystididae reveals a mosaic distribution of characters if applied to previous phylogenies that are based primarily on the male reproductive system. Expand
Sand dwelling Turbellaria from the Netherlands Delta area
Sand dwelling Turbellaria from the Delta of the Rivers Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt have been investigated. Thirty-eight samples taken from littoral and sublittoral stations in the Grevelingen, EasternExpand
Marine macrostomorpha (platyhelminthes, rhabditophora) from the algarve (southern portugal).
TLDR
Ten species of Macrostomorpha were found in marine environments of the Algarve (Portugal) and it is concluded that the individuals studied by Rieger are in fact representatives of a separate species, C. riegeri. Expand
Hard parts in the female system of Syndesmis longicanalis (Platyhelminthes, Rhabdocoela, Umagillidae) are basement membrane derivatives
