Taxon Notes:These species have been placed in the genus Cuthona by some authors - the latter genus is still valid (but in family Cuthonidae), but most species from this region are now placed in Trinchesia in WoRMS, and we follow this here pending a detailed review. This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.
