Invertebrate Taxonomy 8(4):989-1007
Abstract / Notes
This is the first of a series describing new turbellarian and nematode species collected during March and April 1992, on eulittoral sandy shores of Southern Queensland and northern New South Wales, Australia. The environment and all sampling sites are described. Four new species of Macrostomida (Dunwichia arenosa, gen. et sp. nov., Bradburia australiensis. gen. et sp. nov., Macrostomum australiense, sp. nov., and Macrostomum sp. based only on female sexual maturity) were found in eulittoral habitats of sandy beaches, flats and brackish-water creeks.
