Abstract
    During several intensive collecting campaigns in 1982, 1983 and 1984 at the "Station de Recherches Sous-Marines et Océanographiques" (STARESO) at Calvi (Corsica) about 200 species of marine micro-Turbellaria have been observed. Most of the collecting sites are infralittoral, down to 40 m depth and more, the majority of them with sandy bottoms and some with algae. In general species diversity was high but population densities were low, only a few individuals of each species having been found.In the present paper, three new species of the genus Duplominona (Monocelididae, Minoninae) from infralittoral habitats are described: D. paucispina sp. n., D. corsicana sp. n. and D. longicirrus sp. n. From the Mediterranean and its adjacent seas, only two Minoninae are known: Duplominona istanbulensis (Ax, 1959) from the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea (Ax, 1959) and Minona trigonopora Ax, 1956 from the French Mediterranean salt marches at Canet ( Ax, 1956).The caryology of Duplominona paucispina sp. n. and Duplominona corsicana sp. n. has been studied and the results of these studies will be published elsewhere.
