The Geonemertes problem (Nemertea)
TLDR
A re‐examination of all the known species of Geonemertes has shown that two major groups can be distinguished on the basis of morphological characters, and a key to the terrestrial, brackish‐water and marine nemertean species described in the present paper is provided. Expand
Further studies on the evolution of land and freshwater nemerteans: generic relationships among the paramonostiliferous taxa
TLDR
Morphological characteristics of the terrestrial and freshwater paramonostiliferous nemerteans are compared and the possible evolutionary relationships of the plectonemertid genera are discussed and a diagnosis of the family is provided. Expand
The Distribution and Evolution of Terrestrial Nemertines
TLDR
The evolutionary relationship between different species is established on secure morphological grounds, with particular reference to the genus Pantinonemertes which comprises marine, semi-terrestrial and fully terrestrial species. Expand
A new species of Prosorhochmus (Hoplonemertea, Monostilifera) from South Carolina
TLDR
A new species of ovoviviparous hoplonemertean from South Carolina is described and illustrated and compared and contrasted with the only other validated member of the genus, Prosorhochmus claparedii from European waters. Expand
The genus Prosorhochmus Keferstein, 1862 (Hoplonemertea)
A diagnosis of the monostiliferous hoplonemertean genus Prosorhochmus is provided and the type-species, P. claparedii, is redescribed and illustrated from Plymouth and Anglesey material; theExpand
THE EVOLUTION AND COMPARATIVE PHYSIOLOGY OF TERRESTRIAL AND FRESHWATER NEMERTEANS
TLDR
The relationships between the known terrestrial and semi‐terrestrial nemerteans, comprising seven genera and 15 species, are defined and their geographic distribution is discussed. Expand
A new genus of freshwater hoplonemertean from New Zealand
TLDR
A new freshwater hoplonemertean from the Selwyn River, New Zealand, is described and possesses a distinctive combination of characters which establish it as a new genus and species. Expand
Marine relatives of terrestrial nemerteans: The genus Prosadenoporus Bürger, 1890 (Hoplonemertea)
A diagnosis of the monostiliferous hoplonemertean genus Prosadenoporus is provided and the type-species, P. arenarius, is redescribed and illustrated from Malaysian material; this identification isExpand
Land nemertines of Australia
An account of the distribution of Australian land nemertines includes new specimens found in Queensland and near Canberra. Characters uniting Australian Geonemertes and distinguishing between G.Expand
Further observations on the genus Geonemertes with a description of a new species from the Philippine Islands
Intraspecific variation in the histological appearanceof several morphological characters is examined in 33specimens of the land nemertean, Geonemertespelaensis, obtained from many separateExpand
