Lineus corrugatus, n. sp.

Body (in spirit) flattened, rather abruptly pointed anteriorly, and more gradually posteriorly. The œsophageal region is marked externally by a series of prominent and somewhat regular rugæ, which sweep from the mouth dorsally and ventrally ; so that the dorsal view recalls that observed in Arion ater.

Colour dark olive throughout, with the exception of a white band, which crosses the anterior border of the snout, and passes backward to the posterior third of the lateral fissure, where it bends dorsally and terminates.

The special characters are the very large mouth, with the prominent rugæ which show that the animal probably possesses unusual powers of œsophageal protrusion—a supposition borne out by the great development of the external circular muscular fibres and the succeeding longitudinal coat of the organ. The internal glandular lining is also very firm. The outer layers of the proboscis correspond with the type in the Lineidæ ; but the internal longitudinal layer is largely developed.

Hab. Swain's Bay, Kerguelen's Island (Eaton).”

(McIntosh, 1876; 318–323)
