Abstract
    Tubiform cocoons of various shapes are described and illustrated from deep-water localities from Antarctic and Subantarctic regions (South Shetland and Kerguelen Islands) and from the NE Atlantic (Bay of Biscay). They are referred to undescribed species of Kronborgia Christensen & Kanneworff 1964. Thus the geographical and bathymetrical distribution of several fecampiid turbellarians parasitizing crustaceans is considerably extended. Moreover, a new type of short "sausage-shaped" cocoon is described from Antarctica (Weddell Sea) with its size and shape lending support to the possible distinction of a new fecampiid genus.
