  title={A new subfamily, new genus and new species of terrestrial flatworm (Platyhelminthes: Tricladida: Geoplanidae) from Stewart Island, New Zealand},
  author={L. Winsor},
Within the context of ongoing taxonomic revisions of terrestrial flatworms from the Australia–New Zealand region: the new genus Eudoxiatopoplana is erected; the new species Eudoxiatopoplana bilaticlavia is described from Stewart Island; and the new subfamily Eudoxiatopoplaninae is erected within the family Geoplanidae.

Some terrestrial flatworm taxa (Platyhelminthes: Tricladida: Continenticola) of the Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand
Within the context of ongoing taxonomic revisions of terrestrial flatworms from the New Zealand Subantarctic Islands, a new tribe Argaplanini is erected and the replacement name Marionfyfea is proposed for Fyfea, pre-occupied. Expand
A new terrestrial planarian species of the genus Marionfyfea (Platyhelminthes: Tricladida) found in Europe
Small terrestrial planarians found in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and France are described as a new species, Marionfyfea adventor sp. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within the flatworm genus Choeradoplana Graff (Platyhelminthes : Tricladida) inferred from molecular data with the description of two new sympatric species from Araucaria moist forests
The results demonstrate that COI should be used with caution for reconstructing phylogenies, and other slower-evolving nuclear genes are a feasible alternative for resolving some of the phylogenetic relationships. Expand
A new Chilean genus and species of land planarian (Platyhelminthes: Tricladida, Geoplaninae) with cephalic retractor muscle and adenodactyl
Pichidamas piru is a sub-cylindrical and slender Geoplaninae characterized by the presence of a creeping sole extending 50% of the body width, a cephalic retractor muscle, five parenchymatic muscle layers, a male atrium with proximal tongue-like fold and distal adenodactyl; and ovovitelline ducts approaching the copulatory apparatus anteroventrally. Expand
Rolling into the deep of the land planarian genus Choeradoplana (Tricladida, Continenticola, Geoplanidae) taxonomy
This integrative taxonomic study demonstrates once again the usefulness of molecular tools to weigh minor morphological characteristics and thus reveal the existence of species that would otherwise remain cryptic. Expand
Relações filogenéticas entre os gêneros de Geoplaninae (Platyhelminthes, Tricladida) inferidas de caracteres morfológicos
It is found that anatomical features of the copulatory apparatus, such as the presence and type of penis papilla showed many reversions and were not phylogenetically informative, and suggest that several genera of Geoplaninae represent unnatural groups, viz., Geoplana and Notogynaphallia. Expand


New and revised terrestrial flatworm taxa (Platyhelminthes: Tricladida: Terricola) of Australia and the Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand
A new subfamily of the Terricola, the Anzoplaninae, is erected, a new species Anzoplana trilineata is described and a lectotype is designated for Fyfea carnleyi (Fyfe). Expand
Terrestrial flatworms (Platyhelminthes: Tricladida: Terricola) from sub-antarctic Macquarie Island
Circumstantial evidence supports the view that A. vegrandis is vermivorous and is predating upon earthworms at the site, and new species of Arthurdendyus at the Lusitania Bay site, Macquarie Island. Expand
Land nemertines of New Zealand
A full description and comparison of the two land nemertines already reported from New Zealand, Geonemertes novaezealandiae and G. pantini. is followed by the description of G. allisonae sp. nov.,Expand
The spread and distribution of terrestrial planarians (Turbellaria: Tricladida: Geoplanidae) within New Zealand
An analysis of the vegetation groups where the flatworms are presently found suggests that within New Zealand the distributions of endemic terrestrial planarians have been extended significantly by human intervention. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of land and freshwater planarians (Tricladida, Platyhelminthes): from freshwater to land and back.
New molecular data including sequences of nuclear genes, 28S rDNA, and a mitochondrial gene (COI) of a wider sample of dugesiid and terricolan species support a monophyletic origin for Terricola followed by a likely return of some species to freshwater habitats. Expand
Index to the species of the family Geoplanidae (Turbellaria, Tricladida, Terricola) : Part II : Caenoplaninae and Pelmatoplaninae
The taxonomic system used to arrange the various genera in the Geoplanidae Index is presented and it is expected that new genera and possibly subfamilies will be desirable in the future. Expand
The Geonemertes problem (Nemertea)
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
A revision of the cosmopolitan land planarian Bipalium kewense Moseley, 1878 (Turbellaria: Tricladida: Terricola)
The bipaliid fauna of Vietnam, to which B. kewense belongs, appears to have closer phenetic affinities with the faunas of adjacent southern rather than northern regions. Expand
Aspects of taxonomy and functional histology in terrestrial flatworms (Tricladida : Terricola)
The functional histology of selected anatomical systems and their application in taxonomy are reviewed, and include epidermis, subepidermal secretions, musculature and copulatory apparatus, and seven types of adenodactyli are recognised. Expand
Collection, handling, fixation, histological and storage procedures for taxonomic studies of terrestrial flatworms (Tricladida : Terricola)
Methods for the collection, handling, fixation, histological, and storage procedures used in the taxonomic studies of terrestrial flatworms (land planarians) are provided. In general, specimens areExpand
