The female and male of Enterocola fulgens van Beneden, 1860 are fully redescribed, based on specimens living in Polyclinum aurantium Milne Edwards collected at Roscoff. The female body is interpreted to be divided into cephalosome, 4-segmented metasome, and 6-segmented urosome. The cephalosome has paragnaths and the anus is displaced to the anterodorsal side of the anal segment. It is thought that these structures of the female represent diagnostic features for the genus. It is proposed that E. megalova Gotto, 1962 is synonymous with E. fulgens. The male of E. fulgens as studied in this paper closely resembles the males of two other known species of Enterocola.
