Tenellia sp. 37 is most probably Tenellia sp. 40, it is impossible to see if there is the distinctive white patch on the head between the rhinophores and the oral tentacles because of the angle of this picture. I keep it for now seperate.
This species was posted on 22 May 2015 at these websites as Trinchesia sp. 37  Genus: von Ihering, 1879.
Cella et al. (2016) restricted the genus Cuthona  Alder & Hancock, 1855 to the type species, C. nana (Alder & Hancock, 1842) just like Miller (2004) did, and synonymised the genera
- Catriona  Winckworth, 1941,
- Phestilla  Bergh, 1874,
- Cuthona  Alder & Hancock, 1855 (partim), and
- Trinchesia  Ihering, 1879
with Tenellia  A. Costa, 1866 in the Family Fionidae  J.E. Gray, 1857.
I moved on 10 January 2017 Trinchesia sp. 37  Genus: von Ihering, 1879 to the Genus Tenellia  A. Costa, 1866.
