Phylum Platyhelminthes Class Turbellaria (Flatworms)
The invertebrates were identified at family level (BRINKHURST; MARCHESE, 1989; MCCAFERTY, 1981; MERRITT; CUMMINS, 1996; PENNAK, 1989; TRIVINHO-STRIXINO; STRIXINO, 1995), except Odonata (being damaged), and Turbellaria, Collembola, being used in this taxonomic level to carry out the analysis.
Turbellaria was in Big, Moonshine, Post, Soldier, and Marijilda Canyon creeks.
Although adult morphology varies vastly across the group, many core Lophotrochozoa (including the Mollusca, Annelida [including Vestimentifera, Pogonophora, and Echiura, and possibly Myzostoma, and Sipunculida], Gnathostomulida, Nemertea, dicyemid Mesozoa, Entoprocta, and some Platyhelminthes [including polyclad Turbellaria, Catenulida, and Macrostomida]) exhibit spiral cleavage, a highly conserved pattern of early development.
He worked in systematics, describing 30 Crustacea genera and 523 new Crustacea species; for the Nematoda he established eight new families, 61 genera and 239 species, publishing 181 articles and monographic papers including those on Turbellaria, Mollusca and Sipunculida.
