Abstract : Taeniocotyle nom. nov. is proposed to replace Macraspis Olsson, 1869, homonym of Macraspis MacLeay, 1819, a coleopterous insect. It designates certain trematode worms, from the gall-bladders of selachian fishes, that belong to the family Aspidogastridae Poche, 1907 and the order Aspidobothrea Burmeister, 1856. The systematic position of this group, often regarded as intermediate between the Monogenea and Digenea, is reviewed. From morphological and developmental evidence, the Aspidobothrea and Digenea are included in the subclass Malacobothridia Burmeister, 1856. (Author)
