The genus Humbertium gen. nov., a new taxon of the land planarian family Bipaliidae (Tricladida, Terricola)

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 131(S1):201-204.

A new generic name is proposed for a group of 23 bipaliid species that share a unique feature of the female copulatory organ: the ovovitelline ducts tam dorsally before reaching the gonopore, and enter the female organ from an antero-dorsal aspect. They are distributed in Madagascar, India, Sri Lanka, China, Sarawak, and West Malaysia.
