A checklist of the parasitic nematodes of Chinese marine fishes is presented. This fauna comprises 90 species, representing 31 genera, 13 families, nine superfamilies, three orders and two subclasses. Additional details for each species include the hosts, localities and references which represent the source of these data.
Two new species of lepocreadiid trematodes are reported from marine fishes from the Taiwan Straits, China: Diploproctodaeum spinosus n. sp. from the intestine of Takifugu oblongus (= Fugu oblongus) and Preptetos parapristipomae n. sp. from Parapristipoma trilineatum. Diploproctodaeum spinosus differs from the known species of Diploproctodaeum, with 1 spine(More)
The species Phanurus oligoovus gen. et sp. nov. is described from the intestine of Liza carinatus (Cuvier et Valencienne) from the South China Sea. From the general internal anatomy, it belongs to the Waretrematidae and is distinguished from the other known species of the Waretrematidae by the tail appendage. A new subfamily, Phanurunae, is proposed for the(More)
Saccocoelium megasacculum n. sp. (Digenea: Haploporidae) was collected from the intestine of the mugilid fish. Liza carinatus (Cuvier and Valenciennes), in the Taiwan Strait. It is the first record of Saccocoelium in China. The parasite most closely resembles Saccocoelium obesum Looss, 1902 and Saccocoelium tensum Looss, 1902 in general morphology and body(More)
Two new species of Pseudohapladena Yamaguti, 1952 (Digenea: Waretrematidae) are described. Pseudohapladena megoorchis n. sp. was obtained from the intestine of Mugil engeli (Bleeker) (Mugilidae), and Pseudohapladena lizae n. sp. from the intestine of Liza carinatus (Cuvier and Valenciennes) (Mugilidae). Pseudohapladena megaorchis is the most closely related(More)
Haploporus mugilis sp. n. (Digenea: Haploporidae) was obtained from the intestine of kandas, Valamugil engeli (Bleeker) (Mugilidae, Perciformes) in the Taiwan Straits, China. It most closely resembles Haploporus spinosus Machida, 1996 from the intestine of Crenimugil crenilabis in Japanese and adjacent waters in the intestinal bifurcation posterior to the(More)
Megasolena dongzhaiensis n. sp. was collected from the intestine of Scatophagus argus (Linnaeus) (Perciformes: Scatophagidae) from the Dongzhai Bay (110 degrees 32'-37'E, 19 degrees 51'-20 degrees 1'N), Hainan Province, China. It resembles Megasolena acanthuri Machida and Uchida, 1991 in having larger body size, but it differs from the latter species in(More)
Lasiotocus lizae sp. n. (Digenea: Monorchiidae) was collected from the intestine of Liza carinata (Valenciennes) (Mugilidae, Perciformes) in the Taiwan Straits, China. L. lizae is most similar to Lasiotocus glebulentus Overstreet, 1971 from the intestine of Mugil cephalus from the Northern Gulf of Mexico in having tightly compacted vitellaria, a genital(More)
In this article, we propose a mechanical rubbing method to eliminate the optical bounce and decrease the response time of homeotropic liquid crystal (LC) cells with sputtered silicon dioxide alignment films. After gently rubbing the inorganic alignment film (sputtered silicon oxide, SiO 2), the decreasing polar anchoring energy results in slightly smaller(More)
