New combination "Detailed examination of Wieser' s (1956) original description of T. claviger and comparison with other species in this genus indicate that the specimen described by Gerlach (1963) as T. claviger, is a junior homonym and belongs to a different species. Gerlach's description was of a specimen collected from the Maldive Islands, therefore, T. claviger, sensu Gerlach (1963) nec Wieser (1956) is here re-named T. maldivensis sp . nov .. The group of Terschellingia species lacking distinctly offset circular bulbs, in which T
maldivensis sp. nov. is now also included, can be distinguished using the information in Table 2 and Figure 2. T. maldivensis has a longer tail than all the other species and shorter spicules than those of T. claviger. T.. capitata can be distinguished by the posterior position of its amphids and its higher demanian 'a' ratio, while T. brevicauda has a shorter tail than the other species." Austen, 1989 [details]
