Four species of the acanthocolpid genus Stephanostomum are redescribed from the digestive tract of teleosts in the Western Mediterranean: the type-species, S. cesticillum from Lophius piscatorius is described with a ventrally interrupted ring of 35 circum-oral spines and as lacking a uroproct; S. bicoronatum from Sciaena umbra has a ventrally interrupted ring of 31 circum-oral spines and a uroproct; S. pristis from Phycis phycis has an uninterrupted ring of 36 oral spines and no uroproct; S… 

Four species of Stephanostomum Looss, 1899 (Digenea: Acanthocolpidae) from Seriola dumerili (Risso) (Teleostei: Carangidae) in the western Mediterranean, including S. euzeti n. sp.

Four species of Stephanostomum are described from various sites in Seriola dumerili of sympatric species differentiated mainly on circum-oral spine number and attention is drawn to the presence in the rectum of S. ditrematis.

Acanthocolpus liodorus Lühe, 1906 and Stephanostomoides tenuis (Manter, 1963) are reported from Chirocentrus dorab (Forsskål) for the first time from off New Caledonia. Stephanostomumnoumeaense n.

The following acanthocolpid species are reported from New Caledonia and are distinguished from the three other species with these characters in a detailed review.

Species of Stephanostomum Looss, 1899 (Digenea: Acanthocolpidae) from fishes of Australian and South Pacific waters, including five new species

Nine species of Stephanostomum are described from Australian and Southern Pacific marine fishes including S. madhaviae n.

Two Species of Stephanostomum Looss, 1899 (Digenea: Acanthocolpidae) from Marine Fishes off Namibia, Including S. Beukelaardori n. sp.

Stephanostomum kovalevae Parukhin, 1968 from the intestine of Lophius vomerinus off Swakopmund, Namibia, is redescribed. It is characterised by its large number (c.73-88) of circum-oral spines, its

A new species of Stephanostomum Looss, 1899 (Digenea, Acanthocolpidae) with a bizarre oral sucker: S. adlardi sp. nov. from the common coral trout Plectropomus leopardus (Lacepède, 1802) (Perciformes, Serranidae) from Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef

A phylogenetic tree estimated from combined nuclear small and partial large ribosomal RNA gene sequences shows that, despite the unusual oral sucker structure, the species is a true member of the genus Stephanostomum.

First Record of Stephanostomum Sp. Looss, 1899 (Digenea: Acanthocolpidae) Metacercariae Parasitising the Pleasure Oyster Crassostrea Corteziensis (Hertlein) from the Mexican Pacific Coast

The first incidence of the digenean Stephanostomum sp of the family Acanthocolpidae parasitizing Crassostrea corteziensis is reported, and this bivalve is now considered a new intermediate host, and the northwestern Mexican Pacific coast is a new geographical distribution area for this digenesan.

Monostephanostomum georgianum n. sp. (Digenea: Acanthocolpidae) from Arripis georgianus (Valenciennes) (Perciformes: Arripidae) off Kangaroo Island, South Australia, with comments on Monostephanostomum Kruse, 1979 and Stephanostomum Looss, 1899

Four species of Monostephanostomum are recognised: M. georgianus off southern Western Australia and Kangaroo Island, South Australia and A. trutta off northern Tasmania, and two new combinations are formed, M. gazzae (Shen, 1990) n.

Descriptions of some unusual digeneans from Boops boops L. (Sparidae) and a complete checklist of its metazoan parasites

B. boops is a new host for 11 metazoan parasites (six digeneans, three acanthocephalans, one copepod and one isopod) recovered in this study.

Relationships within the Acanthocolpidae Lühe,1906 and their place among the Digenea

Evidence from sister taxa indicates that the parasites of piscivorous marine mammals, the Brachycladiidae, are derived from piscvorous marine fish parasites.



On the morphology and life-history of Stephanostomum caducum (Looss 1901) Manter 1934 (trematoda, acanthocolpidae)

The cercaria of Stephanostomum caducum develops in redia in the marine prosobranch Natica alderi, and is probably identical with Cercaria obtusicaudata Pelseneer 1906.


The present paper deals with ten species of digenetic trematodes from fishes collected in the Daya Bay, namely Opistholebetidae, Monorchiidae, Lepocreadiidae, Opecoelidae and Hemiuridae, which are new science.

A comparison of the parasite fauna of young whiting, Odontogadus merlangus (L.) (Gadidae) from an inshore and an offshore location off the Isle of Man

Differences in the occurrence of 12 helminth and 4 crustacean parasites on young whiting 0–2 years old from an inshore (Port Erin Bay) and an offshore (off Bradda Head) area of the Isle of Man were compared to support the theory that Inshore and offshore whiting of these age groups form separate populations and that the offshore fish may be more important than the inshores fish in replenishing stocks of older whiting.

Changes in the parasite fauna of whiting Odontogadus merlangus L. with age and sex of host, season, and from different areas in the vicinity of the Isle of Man

Results suggest that whiting to the east of the Isle of Man form a separate sub-stock from those to the west of the island, and Experimental evidence suggests that the lower salinity of Morecambe Bay may be responsible for the lower infestation of whiting by Diclidophora which appeared to be unaffected by a lowered salinity.

Some helminth parasites of marine fishes of south Africa: family Opecoelidae (Digenea)

The following digeneans are described, recorded or figured from South African waters: Pseudopecoelus ablennesi sp. nov. from Ablennes hians; Coitocaecum capensis sp. nov. from Clinus superciliosus,

The distribution of some helminth and copepod parasites in tissues of whiting, Merlangius merlangus L., from Manx waters

Digenetic trematodes from Gadus morhua L. (Osteichthyes, Gadidae) from Danish and adjacent waters, with special reference to their life-histories

Some Digenetic Trematodes of Marine Fishes from Israel's Mediterranean Coast and Their Zoogeography, Especially Those from Red Sea Immigrant Fishes

The Trematode Parasites of Irish Marine Fishes

The writer discovered partly digested specimens of small cod to form a considerable bulk of the stomach contents of the conger eel, which suggests that the intermediate host of the larval stages of these parasites must be some common marine form, in all probability an invertebrate, which itself enjoys a very wide geographical distribution.


The life cycle of Stephanostomum baccatum includes an ophthalmoxiphidiocercous cercaria, lacking a penetration stylet, which develops in Buccinum undatum and Neptunea decumcostatum. The metacercaria
