Provortex balticus (Schultze, 1851)1893 or earlier
Macrostomum pusillum Ax, 19511974 or earler
Fecampia erythrocephala Giard, 18861894 or earlier
Monops fuscus (Ørsted, 1843)Aug-Sep 1892Abundant among Balani, Ulva, and generally throughout the littoral zone. Monotus fuscus is here the characteristic form, although it ranges throughout the tidal zone. It appears to derive moisture from Balani into which it creeps during ebb-tide.
Convoluta paradoxa Ørsted, 1843Aug-Sep 1892Widely distributed in the littoral zone; nowhere, however, very abundant, nor do the specimens attain the dimensions of Millport examples.
Promesostoma solea (Schmidt, 1857)Aug-Sep 1892Abundant in dredging from almost all localities.
Enterostomum austriacum Graff, 1882Aug-Sep 1882Specimens referable to this species occurred commonly in the Sound at depths below 5 fathoms.
Leptoplana droebachensis Ørsted, 18451883 or earlierRecently, specimens from Plymouth Sound have reached me which agree in almost every particular with L. Droebachensis, Oe., as described by Jensen, and it appears probable that this species has hitherto been confused on our coasts with L. tremellaris.

Proporus venenosus (Schmidt, 1852)1905 or earlierKanal La Manche (Plymouth-Sund).
