 en Revision of the Genus Beatogordius check for this species in other resources (Gordiida, Nematomorpha). II. South American Species with Description of Two New Species
Cristina de Villalobos; Andreas Schmidt-Rhaesa & Fernanda Zanca

Abstract

Seven species of Beatogordius check for this species in other resources (Nematomorpha) have been reported from South America. A reinvestigation could not reproduce a number of determinations indicated in the literature. Beatogordius has been a misinterpretation and the status of B. irregularis appears to be very uncertain, because no generic characters could be found. The descriptions of B. alfredi and B. latastei confirm that these species belong to South America only. In B. abaiconus we found adhesive warts anterior of the male cloacal opening. These structures were to date only known from the genus Gordionus. In the posterior end of females from B. alfredi and B. variabilis, short paired rows of bristles were present which had to date only been known from the African species B. equinatus. Two new species, B. funis and B. palustre could be added to the genus.
