The present work is mainly a literature update to the monographic treatment by Berger (1999). Steinia citrina was discovered by Berger & Foissner (1987) in soil from Greece. In 1989 it was transferred to Cyrtohymena by Foissner. Later, it was classified in the nominotypical subgenus Cyrtohymena (Cyrtohymena) by Foissner (2004). However, the current systematic status is again Cyrtohymena citrina (Berger & Foissner, 1987) Foissner, 1989 be-cause division of Cyrtohymena into subgenera has been overruled. So far, populations from Germany, Greece, Turkey, India, and Korea have been described more or less detailed. All relevant contributions are listed in a detailed synonymy. Type slides of C. citrina are deposited in the Biology Centre of the Upper Austrian Museum in Linz (LI). A brief morphological characterisation, based on the available descriptions, is provided. For details on morphology and for illustrations and micrographs the reader is referred to the original papers and revisions. In molecular trees, Cyrtohymena citrina usually clusters with Paraurostyla weissei. It is included in about 110 phylogenetic studies; references are listed separately for each sequence. The sequences available so far do not form a monophyletic group. Faunistic records are available from Europe, Asia, North, Central, and South Americas, Africa, as well as Australia. Cyrtohymena citrina is moderately common and occurs in terrestrial and limnetic habitats. 145 references dealing with this species are listed. The ZooBank registration number of C. citrina is: urn:lsid:zoobank.org:act:50B6E92E-26AF-4346-82DA-71340A61A2BB.

Abstract. The present work is mainly an update on the monographic treatment by Berger (1999) who revised, inter alia, the genus Cyrtohymena Foissner, 1989, comprising 15 species. Since then, several species have been transferred to other genera and thus Cyrtohymena currently contains eight species. The present work deals with six mainly little-known species, namely C. gracilis, C. granulata, C. marina, C. primicirrata, C. sapropelica, and C. torrenticola. Cyrtohymena citrina was already updated while C. muscorum, type species of Cyrtohymena, will be treated in the next part of this series. For each species, all relevant contributions are listed in a detailed synonymy. A brief mor-phological characterization, based on available descriptions, is provided for each species. The nomenclatural and taxonomic history is discussed at length. All species have been registered in ZooBank. For details on mor-phology and for illustrations and micrographs the reader is referred to the original papers and revisions. For each species all records are listed in the occurrence and ecology section. About 70 papers deal with these species. A key to all Cyrtohymena species is included..

Abstract. The present work is an update to the monographic treatment by Berger (1999) of Cyrtohymena and its type species, C. muscorum. The oxytrichid genus Cyrtohymena was established by Foissner in 1989 for most species previously classified in Steinia. These two genera differ, inter alia, in the shape of the undulating membranes (Cyrtohymena pattern vs. Steinia pattern), the consistency of the cell (flexible vs. rigid), the cortical granulation (present in many species vs. absent because a stylonychid), and the behaviour of the postoral ventral cirrus V/3 during cell division (involved in primordia formation vs. not involved). The type species of Cyrtohymena, Oxytricha (Steinia) muscorum Kahl, 1932, was redescribed several times and is reliably recorded from Europe, Asia, North America, and Africa. All relevant contributions, including two subjective synonyms, are listed in a detailed synonymy. A detailed morphological characterization is provided. The morphological, ontogenetic, and gene sequence data indicate that Cyrtohymena muscorum is an oxytrichid, that is, a flexible dorsomarginalian hypotrich with kinety 3 fragmentation. Cyrtohymena muscorum is moderately common and occurs (exclusively?) in terrestrial habitats. In total, it is recorded at least 47 times, including some original records. The ZooBank registration number of Cyrtohymena is: urn:lsid:zoobank. org:act:CE7680BF-D4CB-4BF9-A25B-AE31AECD4 BAB. The ZooBank registration number of C. muscorum is: urn:lsid:zoobank. org:act:D579DE5A-F7AA-4D97- B3F0-6AB30D6CAECA. A key to the species assigned to Cyrtohymena is provided and the species misclassified in this genus are discussed. All ciliate names mentioned in the Cyrtohymena updates are indexed.

Abstract: The present work is a summary of my taxonomic output since 1983 when I published my first scientific work. Since then, my co-authors (mainly W. Foissner) and I have published 126 works which contain: one (unnamed) variant; 19 new subspecies; 185 new species; eight new subgenera; 70 new genera; 12 new suprageneric taxa; nine new communities; and two nomina nuda. In addition, we made 284 combinations, about 1600 redescriptions and/or reviews of 1453 taxa, and 47 changes in rank; 17 names have been corrected. All these taxa and names are listed, including reference and page number so that they can be found easily in my publications. Five scientific projects, approved by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the Austrian Academy of Sciences and made be-tween 2001 and 2017, are briefly presented. In total, 126 works (16 books; 58 papers; 52 abstracts) have been published. All taxonomically relevant works are registered in ZooBank.
