HosT: Epinephelus merra Bloch (new host record). LOCATION: Stomach. LOCALITY: Nha Trang Bay, South Viet Nam (new locality record). DiscussioN: Two very dissimilar specimens were collected from this host. One specimen was 1.30 long and contained very few eggs; the other was 2.6 long and gravid. In both specimens the ecsomas were completely invaginated. The larger specimen agrees with the material collected by Manter (1954) from fish from New Zealand, and with the single specimen collected by… Expand
Some Myxosporida from Marine Fishes in South Florida1
Three species of beloniform fishes from south Florida waters were examined for myxosporidan parasites and a single spore of the genus Myxidium was found in the gall bladder of Hemiramphus brasiliensis Linnaeus. Expand
First Record of the Bathypelagic Chaetognath Heterokrohnia involucrum Dawson, 1968 in the Gulf of California and its Association with a Parasitic Nematode
This species was originally described from the Arctic Ocean and it is now recorded for the first time in Mexican waters, thus representing a new geographical record and expanding its geographical range. Expand
Nematodes of elasmobranch fishes from the southern coast of Brazil.
Nematode larvae of the genera Anisakis, Contracaecum, Pseudoterranova and Raphidascaris are listed from the stomach and spiral valves of several hosts. Expand
Checklist of metazoan associated with grunts (Perciformes, Haemulidae) from the Nearctic and Neotropical regions
Using information from published articles, databases, and recent samples from the Brazilian coastal zone, a list of parasites of haemulid (grunts) fish known from the Neotropical and Nearctic regionsExpand
Trematodes of the family Heterophyidae (Digenea) in Mexico: a review of species and new host and geographical records
Metacercariae of heterophyid trematodes are among the most frequent and abundant parasites offish in Mexico, in particular in its southeastern part. Expand
Genetic characterization of members of the genus Contracaecum (Nematoda: Anisakidae) from fish-eating birds from west-central Florida, USA, with evidence of new species
The rrnS data indicate that these specimens are clearly genetically different from the morphologically most closely related species, i.e. C. rudolphii and C. microcephalum, and could represent a new species. Expand
Aspects of the Biology of the Red Drum, Sciaenops ocellatus , in Mississippi
The red drum served as a host for a variety of parasites, some capable of having an adverse effect on natural stocks, on cultured stocks, and on seafood consumers, and most species known to infect the drum are listed in a table. Expand
Endoparasites of the Double-crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus} in Florida
The prevalence and intensity of infection with helminths in the double-crested cormorant in Florida was determined to be the most frequently and heavily infected and carried the greatest number of species. Expand
A New Species of Intromugil (Digenea: Haploporidae) and Redescription of Intromugil mugilicolus
Comparison of more than 2,400 base-pair-long sequences of nuclear rDNA from I. mugilicolus and I. alachuaensis n. Expand
Helminth infections of some invertebrates of the Georgia Bight
This study reemphasizes the high frequency of infection of marine invertebrates over large areas, the considerable pathology produced as well as the remarkable variability in infection patterns in local areas and with season. Expand
