Abstract

A new species of marine gastrotrich is described. Adulte of Paraturbanella solitaria new species are simultaneous hermaphroditic, ribbon shaped, up to 530 um long and up to 64 um wide. The head bears a pair of sensorial piston pits and its anterior-most portion is hexagonally shaped. The adhesive apparatus consiste of anterior and posterior adhesive tubules in addition to bilateral "Seitenfiißchen" organs that take origin in the middle of the pharyngeal region. The new species is placed and discusseti within the "teissieri" species assemblaggi. This is the first gastrotrich reported from the coast of California.
