Description of a new genus Praephiline gen. nov. (Gastropoda: Opisthobranchia: Philinidae)

E.M. Chaban & E.V. Soldatenko

Abstract. A new genus of opisthobranch mollusks Praephiline gen. nov. is described for Philine finmarchica M. Sars, 1858. Philine finmarchica differs significantly from the type of Philine - Philine aperta in the morphology of gizzard and male copulatory apparatus. The status of Philine thurmanni thurmanni Marcus & Marcus, 1969 and Philine thurmanni chilla Marcus & Marcus, 1969 is discussed; they are considered to be distinct species and assigned to the new genus - Praephiline thurmanni (Marcus & Marcus, 1969) and Praephiline chilla (Marcus & Marcus, 1969).
