Systematic studies on limnic macrostomum spp turbellaria macrostomida from east africa



Zoologica Scripta 5(2): 49-60



Descriptions of 9 new species of Macrostomum from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda are given: M. coxi from Lake Naivasha, 2 dams and 1 pond in Kenya; M. baringoense from Lake Baringo; M. reynoldsoni from the River Mwena and a canal near Mombasa; M. nairobiense from a dam at Nairobi; M. christinae from the River Kitenkela/Athi, Kenya and Lake Amani, Tanzania; M. thingithuense from the River Thingithu, Mt. Kenya; M. amaniense from Lake Amani, Tanzania; M. georgeense from Lake George, Uganda; and M. sinvaense from 6 streams/rivers, 2 dams and 5 pools in Kenya. Their similarities to known species are discussed. Recorded for the 1st time from E Africa are M. orthostylum (M. Braun, 1885) from 2 rivers near Mombasa, M. rostratum (Papi, 1951) from a dam near Nairobi, and M. tuba (Graff, 1882) from 4 rivers, 4 dams and 2 ponds in Kenya and, tentatively, Lake Edward.
