A taxonomic revision of South American species of the genus Stenostomum O. Schmidt (Platyhelminthes: Catenulida) based on morphological characters
The genus Stenostomum is revised based on a rich collection of species from Argentina and on a review of bibliographical resources of all known South American species and several species are transferred to it based on the absence of light-refracting bodies and the presence of a metameric anterior brain lobe.

Checklist of freshwater symbiotic temnocephalans (Platyhelminthes, Rhabditophora, Temnocephalida) from the Neotropics
A checklist of symbiotic temnocephalan fauna from 57 taxa of freshwater invertebrate and vertebrate hosts from 16 families included in four classes from the Neotropics is generated. Expand
A new Paravortex (Platyhelminthes, Dalyellioida) endoparasite of Mesodesma mactroides (Bivalvia, Mesodesmatidae) from Uruguay
A new Paravortex species that was found in the intestine of Mesodesma mactroides from the Atlantic coast of Uruguay is described and a bibliographical revision of the known Parav Vortex species with their respective hosts, location, and distribution is made. Expand
First records of Pseudocerotidae (Platyhelminthes: Polycladida: Cotylea) from Patagonia, Argentina

Composition of meiobenthonic Platyhelminthes from brackish environments of the Galician and Cantabrian coasts of Spain with the description of a new species of Djeziraia (Polycystididae,
The present study contributes to knowledge on the ability of adaptation of free‐living Platyhelminthes to regimes of brackish water ecotones by analysis of the turbellarian species assemblages and the relation of species distributions to salinity, conductivity, oxygen, temperature, and sediment characteristics.

Land flatworms of the genus Pasipha (Platyhelminthes, Geoplanidae) in Argentina, with description of three new species.
Three new species of the genus Pasipha are reported in the Interior Atlantic Forest ecoregion in Argentina, with the description of three new species that exhibit similarities in internal anatomy, but can be distinguished from each other mainly by the secretion types discharged into the prostatic vesicle.
