Abstract / Notes

Kenk, Roman. Index of the Genera and Species of the Freshwater Triclads
(Turbellaria) of the World. Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology, number
183, 90 pages, 1974.—An index is presented of the genera, subgenera, species, and
subspecies of the freshwater triclads (Tricladida Paludicola or Probursalia).
The valid names and synonyms of the species are listed, as well as their distributional
areas and their principal morphological, taxonomic, and ecological
literature. The genera Planaria and Polycelis, which now are valid genera of
freshwater triclads, encompassed originally many species which in the modern
taxonomy are placed into other orders and suborders of the Turbellaria and
into the Nemertina. These species are listed in the index and referred to their
proper taxa.
