Abstract
    A new species of Biemna, Biemna strongylota sp. nov. is described from Antarctica. The new species is compared to other Antarctic species of Biemna, B. chilensis and B. macrorhaphis from which it differs in that it possesses strongyle megascleres, instead of styles, and of the microsclere complement which includes microxeas, raphides and two categories of sigmata.
