Debeauchampia anatolica n. gen. n. sp., a retrobursal fresh-water planarian from Turkey.
Boll Zool 48:107-111

Abstract / Notes

A freshwater planarian collected in Anatolia is described. Its major characteristic concerns the copulatory
system which exhibits features shared by the maricolan species. As only 1 specimen was available for
diagnosis it is not advisable to infer its taxonomic position within the Tricladida. This is not the 1st
of a planarian which, though living in a freshwater habitat, presents morphological characters common to the
maricolan species.
