  • We collected specimens of Microcotyle spp. from two species of scorpaeniform fishes off Algeria, namely Scorpaena notata and Helicolenus dactylopterus. The identification of both fishes was confirmed by molecular barcoding of the COI gene. Sequences of COI gene were also obtained for both parasite species. The species from S. notata is described as Microcotyle algeriensis n. sp., on the basis of morphological differences from other species (number of clamps, number of spines in genital atrium… CONTINUE READING
