Taurida fulvomaculata

Kostenko AG 1989 (citation)- p 25, "A detailed morphological study of the organisation of the acoele
turbellarian Taurida fulvomaculata (Ax, 1959) previously included in the genus Convoluta was carried out.  The
male copulatory apparatus of this species is characterized by consecutive connection of the vesicula
seminalis, vesicula granulorum and ciliated antrum.  Morphological investigation of the male and female
copulatory organs made it possible to compare them with genital organs of other families and to make the
conclustion that a new family must be established for this species."
