Notes for the valid (accepted) taxonomic name
Notes for Macrostomum brasilienseOriginally named as a subspecies Macrostomum appendiculatum forma brasiliensis Marcus, 1952 (citation), this was later raised to species and moved to Archimacrostomum brasiliense (Marcus, 1952) by Ferguson (1954) (citation). Given the issues with Archimacrostomum (see notes there), it is now referred to as Macrostomum brasiliense, as suggested by Zhang et al. 2021 (citation) and Brand et al (citation).
