LIFE HISTORY OF GLOSSOBIUS HEMIRAMPHI (ISOPODA: CYMOTHOIDAE): DEVELOPMENT, REPRODUCTION, AND SYMBIOSIS WITH ITS HOST HEMIRAMPHUS BRASILIENSIS (PISCES: HEMIRAMPHIDAE)
TLDR
Results indicate that Glossobius hemiramphi is a protandric hermaphrodite with an annual life cycle, and it cannot exclude the possibility that infested fish have a higher mortality rate than uninfested fish, at least temporarily.
Philometrid nematodes infecting fishes from the Everglades National Park, Florida, USA, with description of two new species
The following three species of the Philometridae (Nematoda: Dracunculoidea) are described from marine perciform fishes of the Everglades National Park (northern Gulf of Mexico), Florida, U.S.A.:
Pseudorhabdosynochus species (Monogenoidea, Diplectanidae) parasitizing groupers (Serranidae, Epinephelinae, Epinephelini) in the western Atlantic Ocean and adjacent waters, with descriptions of 13
TLDR
Nine species of groupers collected from the western Atlantic Ocean and adjacent waters were infected with 19 identified species (13 new) of Pseudorhabdosynochus Yamaguti, 1958, and the following species are described or redescribed based entirely or in part on new collections.
Monogenoidean parasites of the gill lamellae of the sheepshead Archosargus probatocephalus (Walbaum) (Perciformes: Sparidae) from the Indian River Lagoon, Florida, with descriptions of four new
Examination of the gill lamellae of three sheepshead Archosargus probatocephalus (Walbaum) from the Indian River Lagoon in Florida revealed six species of Monogenoidea: Microcotyle archosargi
Redescription of Philometra margolisi Moravec, Vidal-Martínez et Aguirre-Macedo, 1995 (Nematoda: Philometridae), a gonad-infecting parasite of the red grouper Epinephelus morio (Serranidae) in the
The insufficiently known nematode species Philometra margolisi Moravec, Vidal-Martínez et Aguirre-Macedo, 1995 (Philometridae) is redescribed based on light and scanning electron microscopical (SEM)
Pseudorhabdosynochus sulamericanus (Monogenea, Diplectanidae), a parasite of deep-sea groupers (Serranidae) occurs transatlantically on three congeneric hosts (Hyporthodus spp.), one from the
TLDR
This transatlantic distribution raises questions with regard to phylogeography and assumptions about the allopatry of Atlantic grouper species from the Americas and Afro-Eurasia and proposes some hypothetical explanations for these findings.
Cardicola laruei Short, 1953 (Digenea: Aporocotylidae) from Heart of Seatrout, Cynoscion spp., (Perciformes: Sciaenidae) in the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean: Taxonomic Redescription, First
TLDR
This report significantly contributes to knowledge of C. laruei by extending its known geographic distribution to a new ocean basin (Atlantic Ocean), adding supplemental morphological data derived from light and scanning electron microscopy, and providing the first published observations of nonadult life history stages (egg and miracidium).
Three new gonad-infecting species of Philometra (Nematoda: Philometridae) parasitic in Lutjanus spp. (Lutjanidae) in the northern Gulf of Mexico off Florida, USA.
TLDR
Three new gonad-infecting species of Philometra Costa, 1845 (Nematoda: Philometridae) are described from marine fishes of the genus Lutjanus Bloch in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
