Names used for nemertean genera and species of the world are listed alpha-betically, with their original description citations, synonymy and current taxonomic status. Though many remain inadequately described, 250 genera and 1149 species are recognized as valid; these comprise Archinemertea (3 genera, 28 species), Palaeonemertea (11, 70), Heteronemertea (79, 401), monostiliferous Hoplonemertea (91, 500), reptantic polystiliferous Hoplonemertea (22, 45), pelagic polystiliferous Hoplonemertea (40… Expand

Systematics and phylogeny of the hoplonemertean genus Diplomma (Nemertea) based on molecular and morphological evidence
TLDR
A redescription of the poorly known distromatonemertean Diplomma serpentina (Stimpson, 1855), a species that has not been reported since its original description, and comparison of cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene (COI) sequences indicates that D. serpentina is distributed in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Japan. Expand
Taxonomy and phylogeny of Lineus torquatus and allies (Nemertea, Lineidae) with descriptions of a new genus and a new cryptic species
TLDR
The authors' analyses confirmed the presence of a cryptic species of what was formerly known as the cherry-red and reddish forms of Lineus torquatus, herein described as Kulikovia manchenkoi sp. Expand
On the identity of two Antarctic brooding nemerteans: redescription of Antarctonemertes valida (Bürger, 1893) and description of a new species in the genus Antarctonemertes Friedrich, 1955 (Nemertea, Hoplonemertea)
TLDR
The redescribe Antarctonemertes valida (Bürger, 1893), a senior synonym of A. michaelseni, and a new congeneric species are described, stressing the need of combining molecular and morphological information when dealing with closely related species of nemerteans. Expand
A shore-based preliminary survey of marine ribbon worms (Nemertea) from the Caribbean coast of Colombia
TLDR
The results of this work suggest that the Caribbean coast of Colombia is a region with a high diversity of nemerteans, and provide important taxonomic data for environmental assessments and future biological research. Expand
Integrative Taxonomy of the Micrura alaskensis Coe, 1901 Species Complex (Nemertea: Heteronemertea), with Descriptions of a New Genus Maculaura gen. nov. and Four New Species from the NE Pacific
TLDR
Evidence is presented from morphology of the adults, gametes, and sequences of cytochrome c oxidase subunit I and 16S rRNA genes that Micrura alaskensis is not one, but a complex of five, cryptic species, which are proposed to be a new genus, Maculaura gen. nov. Expand
A new member of the genus Antarctonemertes (Hoplonemertea, Nemertea) from Antarctic waters
TLDR
A fourth Antarctic member of the genus Antarctonemertes, originally described as Tetrastemma unilineatum Joubin, 1910, is document the existence of and the presence of a cocoon built by females of A. unilineata comb. Expand
Delimiting species in the hoplonemertean genus Tetrastemma (phylum Nemertea): morphology is not concordant with phylogeny as evidenced from mtDNA sequences
TLDR
The results indicate that morphological species delimitation in nemerteans may be questionable, and that this in turn may have a profound effect upon estimates of species diversity within the phylum. Expand
Swedish nemerteans (phylum Nemertea), with description of a new hoplonemertean genus and species
A survey of the nemertean fauna along the Swedish west coast found specimens of 20 genera and 32 species, of which one genus and species is new to science (Tetraneuronemertes lovgreni gen. et sp.Expand
DNA barcoding supports identification of Malacobdella species (Nemertea: Hoplonemertea)
TLDR
The results indicate that some morphological characters are useful for species identification and support the potential of DNA barcoding for species Identification in a taxonomic group with subtle morphological external differences. Expand

Index of the genera and species of the freshwater triclads (Turbellaria) of the world
TLDR
An index is presented of the genera, subgenera, species, and subspecies of the freshwater triclads (Tricladida Paludicola or Probursalia) of the world, as well as their distributional areas and their principal morphological, taxonomic, and ecological literature. Expand
Antarctic nemerteans: Heteronemertea– descriptions of new taxa, reappraisals of the systematic status of existing species and a key to the heteronemerteans recorded south of latitude 50oS
TLDR
Twenty-three species representative of 15 heteronemertean genera are recorded from Antarctic and Subantarctic waters south oflatitude 50oS and only Parapolia grytvikenensis Wheeler, Cerebratulus malvini Wheeler, Chilineus glandulosa (Burger) and Huilkia ushuaiensis Serna de Esteban & Moretto can at present be accepted as valid, although incompletely described, taxa. Expand
Enzyme electrophoresis, genetic identity and description of a new genus and species of heteronemertean (Nemertea, Anopla) from northwestern Spain and North Wales
TLDR
Histological studies of the unknown specimens revealed anatomical characters, including the unique feature of a proboscis epithelium ciliated throughout its length, which exclude it from any known heteronemertean taxon; it is accordingly placed in a new genus and species, for which the name Riseriellus occultus is proposed. Expand
Redescription of a brooding nemertine, Cyanophthalma obscura (Schultze) gen. et comb.n., with observations on its biology and discussion of the species of Prostomatella and related taxa * †
TLDR
A new genus, Cyanophthalma, is erected with the type species Tetrastemma obscura Schultze, 1851, and the characters that form the basis for classifying Monostilifera are assessed for phylogenetic significance. Expand
The genus Valdivianemertes Stiasny-Wijnhoff 1923 (Nemertea, Enopla, Hoplonemertea): nomenclatural status and proper systematic position
TLDR
The genus Akrostomum was erected by Grube in 1840 for a single species A. stannii which remained a nomen dubium until redescribed by Burger in 1895 as Amphiporus stanniusi, and was transferred to the Cratenemertidae. Expand

TLDR
The general appearance of this new species is very similar to the so-called palae onemertine Hubrechtella and characteristics of both suggest relationship with the baseodiscid heteronemertines, and relationships are explored in light of a modified interpretation of proboscideal musculature. Expand
