Abstract
    Cirrifera genitoductus sp.n. (Platyhelminthes, Proseriata, Coelogynoporidae) is described from sandy beaches at the Belgian and Northern French coasts. The species is characterised by a cirrus with small spines, all of the same size, a prostate vesicle far behind the copulatory bulb, a long genito-intestinal duct and a pair of large gland complexes behind the genital pore. An identification key for the Cirrifera-species is given as are some data on the ultrastructure. A brief discussion on the character distribution within the Coelogynoporidae shows that the discovery of a species of Cirrifera with a genito-intestinal duct makes the demarcation of the genera even more blurred than it already is.
