Abstract
    The genus Crepis is redescribed from original material held in different institutions and transferred to the family Calloporidae. Crepis longipes, the type species, is redescribed and stabilized by typification. The description of Crepis verticillata is amplified. Three new species are described, all of them previously identified as C. longipes: Crepis harmelini n. sp. from the Strait of Gibraltar, Crepis sidneyi n. sp. from the Indo-Pacific region, and Crepis sinensis n. sp. from the South China Sea. A new genus, Mourellina n. gen., is erected for Crepis decussata, which is split into two species: Mourellina decussata n. comb. and Mourellina gonzaloi n. sp. This genus is placed in its own family, Mourellinidae n. fam., of uncertain affinities. The diagnosis of the family Chlidoniidae, which up to now included the genera Chlidonia and Crepis, is modified by excluding the latter genus.
