Comments Members of the polyclad genus Anonymus are characterized by having multiple male reproductive complexes. Each complex consists of a conical penis papilla and a seminal vesicle enclosed together in a common muscular bulb. A. kaikourensis has two rows of more than 30 pairs of male complexes located lateral to the pharyngeal folds.
