Abstract
    Sandy sediments and algae from the littoral and sublittoral zone of the coast near Mombasa were sampled. Eighteen species of Kalyptorhynchia were collected, of which four new species of Schizorhynchia are described here, two Cheliplana species, one Baltoplana sp. and one Carcharodorhynchus sp. Cheliplana asica terminalis Brunet 1968 described from the Mediterranean and also recorded from Somalia was found as well. Five out of 13 species of Eukalyptorhynchia were already recorded from Somalia. Polycystis ali Schockaert 1982, P. subcontorta Schockaert 1982 and Cinturorhynchus karlingi Schockaert 1982 were newly described from the Somalian coast. P. contorta Schockaert & Karling 1975 also known from Norway and the Mediterranean and Gyratrix hermaphroditus Ehrenberg 1831 is an ubiquist. Six new species of Eukalyptorhynchia collected from algae will be described in a later publication. Additional information is given on Alcha evelinae Marcus 1949 and Toia ycia Marcus 1952.
