Sandy beach meiofauna of Eastern Australia (Southern Queensland and New South Wales). II. Luriculus australiensis, gen. et sp. nov. (Luridae : Dalyelliida : Platyhelminthes).
Invertebr Taxon 8:1009-1115
Abstract / Notes
Luriculus australiensis, gen. et sp. nov., from a sandy, exposed ocean beach at Arrawarra Headland, north of Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia, is described on the basis of light and electron microscopic investigations. The establishment of the new genus Luriculus is based on the presence of germovitellaria, rather than discrete organs. Lurus castor Sterrer and Rieger, 1990, Lurus tyndareus Sterrer and Rieger, 1990, and Lurus minos Sterrer, 1992, are transferred to this genus.
