Convoluta lacazii Notes

Graff L v 1891 (citation)- brief description of.  2 specimens collected with C. sordida at Roscoff.
  	Based on presence of 4 eye spots-
	otherwise like Convoluta sordida- taken with it but clearly 4 eyes.  Rust colored eyes, but
	eyes so different from C. sordida that he makes a new species.
Wagner F v 1891 (citation)- in his review of Graff's 1891- p 654-5- eyes are?
Bohmig L 1895 (citation)- in list p 44.
Wilhelmi J 1913 (citation)- mentions p 67.
Steinbock O 1933 (citation)- note on - lists under uncertain species and gives illustration.
Antonius A 1968 (citation)- lists this species and on p 371 with dermal type penis with cilia.
Dorjes J 1968 (citation)- lists.

Notes for Convoluta sordida

Graff L v 1882 (citation)-illustration - 
Wagner F v 1891 (citation)- in his review of Graff 1891- footnote on p 654 says Graff now adds
	Cyrtomorpha subtilis to this species.
Graff L v 1891 (citation)- illustration on Plates IV and V.  collected at various places in 
		Mediterranean.  Notes confusion on opening and frontal glads as mouth in
		description of Cyrtomorpha subtilis now he says that species = Convoluta sordida.
		Note he lists this as in the monograph p 228.
	frontal organ- well developed with clear [marked opening]
	mouth- large slit- short pharynx with lip like raise in epithelium- mouth attached to this.
	muscle- "most muscular of all acoela"- strong dorso-vental muscles, etc.
	color- greenish brown from pigment granules.  Rhabdites in pockets and crystalloids near
		otoliths , sensory hairs over surface.
	ripe eggs- yellow
	female bursal nozzle 0.035 mm long 0.012 mm
	antrum- he says probably like other Convoluta.
	genital pore- lined with epithelium- accessory glands.
	epithelium- goes directly into penis tube- muscle layer splits, part to penis
		and part to penis sheath into which penis intrudes and which ends at entrance
		of "vas diferentia" granular secretion inside sheath which are probably secreted by
		glandular cells inside sheath.

	Graff dalled these glands with a chitenous tube- later = taste hairs??
