The present study was carried out to examine unidentified and identified specimens
of Nybelinia, Heteronybelinia, Mixonybelinia and Kotorella deposited
at the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris. A total of 17 different
species including type specimens was found: Nybelinia africana Dollfus,
1960; N. erythraea Dollfus, 1960; N. goreensis Dollfus, 1960; N. lingualis
(Cuvier, 1817); Nybelinia cf. lingualis (Cuvier, 1817); N. riseri Dollfus, 1960;
N. scoliodoni (Vijayalakshmi, Vijayalakshmi & Gangadharam, 1996);
N. strongyla Dollfus, 1960; N. surmenicola Okada, 1929; N. thyrsites
Korotaeva, 1971; Heteronybelinia estigmena (Dollfus, 1960); H. eureia
(Dollfus, 1960); H. minima Palm, 1999; H. nipponica (Yamaguti, 1952);
H. robusta (Dollfus, 1960); H. yamagutii (Dollfus, 1960); Mixonybelinia
edwinlintoni (Dollfus, 1960) n.comb. ; Kotorella pronosoma (Stossich, 1901).
M. edwinlintoni is re-described. Nybelinia oodes Dollfus, 1960, H. alloiotica
(Dollfus, 1960), H. cadenati (Dollfus, 1960), and H. senegalensis (Dollfus,
1960) are considered synonymous with H. estigmena (Dollfus, 1960).
H. punctatissima (Dollfus, 1960) is considered synonymous with Nybelinia
lingualis, and specimens of H. punctatissima as described in Dollfus (1960) are
considered synonymous with H. estigmena. H. rougetcampanae (Dollfus,
1960) is considered synonymous with H. nipponica, and N. rhynchobatus
Yang, Lin, Liu & Peng 1995 synonymous with Kotorella pronosoma. Five new
localities and 12 new host records were established. The adults of
Mixonybelinia edwinlintoni n.comb. and N. strongyla are reported for the first
time. A high degree of morphological variability within the same species was
observed, with postlarvae having the potential to reach a larger size than
adults. Most of the studied species exhibit a wide host range and distribution.
List of valid species are given for the five genera within the family
Tentaculariidae: Nybelinia (24 species), Heteronybelinia (10), Mixonybelinia
(3), Kotorella (1), and Tentacularia (1).
