Abstract / Notes
Seven species of free-living acoels are now known from Australia. A new genus, new species and new combination of haploposthiid acoels are reported. They are WAMINOA litus gen. et sp. nov., two non-sexual Waminoa sp., Convolutriloba hastifera sp. nov., and C. japonica (Kato, 1951) comb. nov. The diagnosis for the genus Convolutriloba Hendelberg and Akesson, 1988, is emended. The heterogeneous convolutid genus Amphiscolops is reviewed, and the genus Heterochaerus reinstated and emended to accommodate H. australis Haswell, 1905, and H. sargassi (Hyman, 1939) comb, nov. New records of H. australis and Convolutriloba cf. retrogemma are reported. A key to free-living acoel genera described from Australian waters is provided.
