Stylochoplaninae Ceratoplana Notes

Bock 1925 (citation)- Part 1- "The splendid collection of Turbellaria which my friend Dr. Th. Mortensen brought home from his Pacific-Expedition in 1914-16 has been sent to me for study. Among the material are several Polyclad-specimens, which, on account of the circumstances connected with their discovery, particularly caught Dr. Mortensen's attention. They were underneath sea-urchins of the species Colobocentrotus atratus (L) at Hilo, Hawaii. During the expedition to the Kei Islands Dr. Mortensen also found on Krakatau a couple of Polyclad-specimens underneath the same species of sea-urchins."
