Abstract

The taxonomic status of the genus Cateria Gerlach is discussed and a new suborder, Cryptorhagae, established. Cateria styx Gerlach is redescribed on the basis of new topotype-material and a lectotype and paralectotype are designated. The postembryonic life history of Echinoderes bookhouti Higgins and homalorhagid kinorhynchs is compared with that of C. styx. Habroderella orientalis Kirsteuer and Hapaloderes manglaris Kirsteuer are synonymized with Echinoderes caribiensis Kirsteuer. Cateria gerlachi is described as a new species from Waltair, India. The phylogenetic relationships of the kinorhynch taxa are discussed.
