Structural and systematic studies on Turbellaria Schizorhynehia (Platyhelminthes).
The following infectious agents were observed on slides: viruses (Viral gametocyte hypertrophy), Rickettsia/Chlamydia/Mycoplasma (rickettsia-like organisms, RLOs), ciliates (Ancistrocomidae) on the gills and in the stomach/intestine, xenomas (Sphenophrya-like ciliates), Sprague's Gregarines, Haplosporidium nelsoni (MSX), Nematopsis ostrearum, Turbellaria and Hexamita nelsoni, the average prevalences of each at each site are presented in Table 1.
All organisms were counted after identification to species level, with the exception of Ophiuroidea, Turbellaria, Nemertea and Polychaeta which were identified to higher taxonomic levels.

Both sampling places registered a similar number of taxa, at station A 35 groups were obtained (Cephalopoda and Nudibranchia were absent), and 34 at station B (Sergestidae, Turbellaria and hemichordata were lacking), these groups were the less abundant and frequently captured.
Group 2 was formed by sites with sandy sediments and was represented by Narapa bonettoi, Myoretronectes paranaensis, Turbellaria sp.
