  • Using the principles and methods of phylogenetic systematics, the phylogenetic relationships among the basic closed descendent communities (monophyla) of the taxon Platyhelminthes are discussed.A phylogenetic system of the Platyhelminthes is presented and several hypothesized autapomorphies of the well-known main subordinated monophyla of free-living and parasitic platyhelminths are named. A monophylum ‘Turbellaria’ does not exist in reality.
