Genus
Species Polycystis naegelii Kölliker, 1845

Subgenus Polycystis (Acrorhynchus) accepted as Acrorhynchides Strand, 1928
Subgenus Polycystis (Opisthocystis) accepted as Opisthocystis Sekera, 1911 (Karling (1963) mentions Opisthocystis as a subgenus of Polycystis, followed by Artois (2001). However, Sekera (1911) never described it as a subgenus, so the mentioning by Karling (1963) and Artois (2001) as a subgenus is erroneous.)
  » Species Polycystis (Opisthocystis) goettei accepted as Opisthocystis goettei (Bresslau, 1906) Sekera, 1911 ((Karling (1963) mentions Opisthocystis as a subgenus of Polycystis, followed by Artois (2001). However, Sekera (1911) never described it as a subgenus, so the mentioning by Karling (1963) and Artois (2001) as a subgenus is erroneous.))

Species Polycystis minuta (Uljanin, 1870) Graff, 1905 accepted as Rogneda minuta Uljanin, 1870
Species Polycystis naegellii accepted as Polycystis naegelii Kölliker, 1845 (literature misspelling of naegelii)

Species Polycystis tripalmata Beklemischev, 1927 accepted as Rogneda tripalmata (Beklemischev, 1927) Karling, 1953

Species Polycystis georgii Graff, 1905 (uncertain > taxon inquirendum, Only known from the original description, which is difficult to interprete. According to Meixner (1925, p. 335) it is a certain species, but needs further study.)
Species Polycystis immundus (Schmidt, 1857) Graff, 1905 (uncertain > nomen dubium, Described by Schmidt (1857) on one specimen only. Description does not allow identification. Hence the name should best be considered nomen oblitum.)
Species Polycystis intubata Graff, 1905 (uncertain > taxon inquirendum, Only stylet known, which resembles that of some species of Paulodora. According to Meixner (1925, p. 335) it is a certain species, but needs further study, an opinion followed by Schokcaret (1973) and Artois (2001))
Species Polycystis leucophraeus (Fabricius, 1826) Graff, 1905 (uncertain > nomen dubium, Fabricius' (1823) description is the only existing one. It does not allow further identification, hence the name is best to be considered nomen oblitum.)
Species Polycystis papillatus (Mereschkowsky, 1878) Graff, 1905 (uncertain > nomen dubium, To few details on morphology provided by Mereschkowsky to identify the specimen. Would best be considered nomen oblitum.)

Graff (1905) replaces the name Macrorhynchus by the senior synonym Polycystis. All species described as Macrorhynchus before this date and which still were considered to belong to Macrorhynchus in 1905, therefore, are formally transferred to Polycystis by this act.
