Archimacrostomum pusillum Notes

Although not explicitly stated in their paper, Faubel & Warwick, 2005 (citation) imply that Macrostomum pusillum has been transferred to Archimacrostomum pusillum. Given the issues with Archimacrostomum (see notes there), it is now referred to as Macrostomum pusillum, as suggested by Brand et al (citation).
