Remarks: This species was originally named Gorgodera simplex ( Looss 1899 a, 1899b) based on Canadian specimens and transferred to Gorgoderina by Looss (1905) who established it as the type species of the genus. Material identified by Bensley (1897) as Distoma cygnoides var. B was proposed as synonym of G. simplex by Looss (1905). Pande (1937) and Kaw (1950) considered this species as member of the genus Phyllodistomum .
