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.
