Abstract

Two new Monocelis species from the Mediterranean are described. Monocelis parvula n. sp. is characterized by small size, absence of bursa and vagina, and by a karyotype with n = 3 with one chromosome pair almost twice the size of the others. Monocelis mediterranea n. sp. is characterized by the morphology of bursa and bursal duct. It is the only Monocelis known with a karyotype with n = 4. Monocelis lineata (O. F. Mller, 1774) is re-described, and conspecificity of N. Atlantic and Mediterranean specimens is confirmed on morphological and karyological grounds.
