Phoenocora vejdovskyi   (incorrect subsequent spelling) Cognetti de Martiis 1916: 233.

Known distribution: Klecany near Prague ( Czech Republic) in mud from a pond ( Vejdovský 1895; Graff 1913), Former East Prussia (i.e. present-day Latvia and Lithuania) ( Dorner 1902; Graff 1913). Material examined: None.

Diagnosis: Animals up to 3 mm long, with a small tail. Visible eyes absent. Subdermal pigmentation is present, exact colouration unknown. Zoochlorellae present, sparsely distributed. Male copulatory organ of the duplex-type IIIB. Spines in four rows, three of which are situated at the ventral side of the copulatory organ and the fourth at its dorsal side. In addition to these rows of spines, four dorsal spines with a basal plate occur. Female genital system of the AGLOBULATA   - type or the UNIPUNCTATA   - type.

Remark: The presence of a burso-intestinal duct was not described by Vejdovský (1895). Gilbert (1935) assumed its presence because the proximal part of the intestinal bursa was described as a long channel-like blind sac (see Hofsten 1911 and Fig. 15 View FIGURE 15 F: el).
