Abstract

A new species, Belbolla mangrove sp. nov., isolated from the mangrove wetlands of Fujian and Zhejiang Provinces in China, is described and illustrated. Belbolla mangrove sp. nov. is characterized by a pharynx with four bulbs, a small gubernaculum with a short dorsocaudal apophysis, four weakly developed precloacal supplements, a conico-cylindrical tail with a terminal spinneret, and the absence of terminal setae. This new species differs from B. vietnamica by the absence of ocelli and the blunt and rounded proximal ends of the spicules. The 18S rDNA GenBank accession numbers of B. mangrove sp. nov. are provided. © 2023 by the authors.
