List and counts of observed Turbellaria species in 1978-1979 in the Dutch Delta area. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Martens, P. (1980). Interstitiële Turbellaria van het Nederlands Deltagebied. BSc Thesis. Rijksuniversiteit Gent. Fakulteit Wetenschappen: Gent. 102 pp. more

In total, 38 samples were taken at 27 different locations, situated in the Westerschelde, Oosterschelde and Grevelingen. 33 species were determined from which 23 species new for the area. One genus, four species and a subspecies are new to science: Philosyrtis coomansi, Schizorhynchus coronodentatus, Paracicerina globulosa deltoidea, Archimonocelis oostendensis and the genus Androsimplex with Androsimplex ruber (the last two mentioned species were already found and written about in the work of Degadt, 1973). Density and diversity of Turbellaria is higher in the Oosterschelde than in the Westerschelde or in Grevelingen.
