Abstract
A new kinorhynch species, Condyloderes megastigma sp. nov., is described from the Korea Strait. The new species is characterized by the presence of 16 placids with either eight, four, or two knobby projections, middorsal and lateroventral acicular spines on segments 1 to 9, lateroventral cuspidate spines on segment 2 in females only, but otherwise lateroventral cuspidate spines on segments 4 and 5, and 8 and 9 in both sexes. Unique for the new species is furthermore the presence of paired ventromedial appendages on segments 7 and 8, giant ventromedial sensory spots on segment 9, and a terminal segment consisting of one tergal and one sternal plate. The mouth cone and introvert armature are described in detail for the first time for the genus Condyloderes Higgins, 1969. This study reveals similarities in several morphological characters between this genus and species of Campyloderes Zelinka, 1913.
