    Abstract

    THE genus Peroderma Heller (1868) includes four species, P. cylindricum Heller, P. branchiata Basset-Smith, P. petersi Richiardi and P. bellottii Richiardi. According to Wilson (1917) the last two species are poorly described and certainly do not belong to Peroderma. As Basset-Smith (1898) had only a single specimen he did not make any attempt to study the appendages. This precludes a detailed comparison of his species with the genotype. Brian (1906) and Wilson (1917) have considered P. cylindricum and P. branchiata as synonymous. The object of the present paper is not to discuss the synonymy but to give a detailed description of P. cylindricum.
