Nine species of digenetic trematodes are reported: Lintonium vibex (LINTON, 1900) STUNKARD et NIGRELLI, 1930 from Lagocephalus lunaris (Tetraodontidae), Complexobursa vjetnamensis OSHMARIN et MAMAEV, 1963 from Terapon theraps (Teraponidae); Monascus filiformis (RUDOLPHI, 1819) LOOSS, 1907 (new synonyms: M. americanus AMATO, 1982, M. mediolongiusculus DING, 1993) from Selaroides leptolepis (Carangidae); Tergestia pauca FREITAS et KOHN, 1965 from Alepes djedaba (Carangidae); Transverstotrema…

Parasites of the Vermilion Snapper, Rhomboplites aurorubens (Cuvier), from the Western Atlantic Ocean

Rhomboplites aurorubens represents a new host record for at least 8 of the parasites and Ribosomal DNA sequences from 7 of the helminth species were generated and made available in the National Institutes of Health genetic sequence database (GenBank).

Two new and one known species of Tergestia Stossich, 1899 (Trematoda: Fellodistomidae) with novel molecular characterisation for the genus

Phylogenetic analysis of 28S rDNA supports Tergestia as a reliable generic concept, with analyses showing that some species of the genus form a well-supported clade to the exclusion of all other fellodistomids for which sequence data are available.

Transversotrema Witenberg, 1944 (Trematoda: Transversotrematidae) from inshore fishes of Australia: description of a new species and significant range extensions for three congeners

The known host and geographical ranges of three previously described Transversotrema species are extended and the degree to which morphological analysis can inform taxonomic studies of this group is discussed.

NEW INTESTINAL TREMATODES FROM SIGANID FISHES OFF THE SAUDI COAST OF THE RED SEA

In small samples of the siganid fishes Siganus rivulatus Forsskal et Niebuhr and S. luridus Ruppel (Teleostei) from off the Saudi coast of the Red Sea, some individuals of each fish were found

Trematodes of Red Sea fishes: Hexangium brayi n. sp. (Angiodictyidae Looss, 1902) and Siphodera aegyptensis n. sp. (Cryptogonimidae Ward, 1917), with a review of their genera

Specimens of the marine fishes Siganus luridus (Siganidae) and Caesio suevica (Lutjanidae) were caught in the Red Sea off the coast of Sharm El-Sheikh, South Sinai, Egypt and were found to harbour intestinal trematodes.

Metazoan parasites of smooth-backed blow fish Lagocephalus inermis from Kerala, south-west coast of India

The smooth-backed blow fish (puffer), Lagocephalus inermis Temminck and Schlegel, 1850 (Tetraodontidae), of Indian coastal waters were being till recently, wasted in huge quantities as by-catch. But

Cryptic speciation of the zoogonid digenean Diphterostomum flavum n. sp. demonstrated by morphological and molecular data

Diphterostomum brusinae (Zoogonidae) is a digenean species that has been recorded worldwide parasitizing marine fishes. Several species have been synonymized with D. brusinae because they lack

The parasite Monascus filiformis (Trematoda, Digenea, Fellodistomidae) on Stromateus brasiliensis (Pisces, Perciformes, Stromateidae): possible routes of transmission involving jellyfish

This work improves the knowledge about the final hosts of this parasite and infers which species of medusa may be involved in their life cycle.

The life cycle of Hexangium sigani Goto & Ozaki, 1929 (Digenea: Microscaphidiidae) from the Red Sea

The present study of H. sigani describes the first complete microscaphidiid life cycle, and implicitly supports the phylogenetic relationship of this family with the Mesometridae inferred from molecular phylogenetic studies.

The cercariae of M. filiformis and S. furciger are redescribed, and the different developmental stages of both species were studied in the scanning electron microscope.

This is the first record of cercariae of Monascus filiformis and of Chaetognatha as a second intermediate host in the southwest Atlantic Ocean and the life cycle proposed here follows the general pattern given for the family Fellodistomidae.

Note on Lintonium vibex (Linton, 1899) (Digenea—Trematoda)

In March 1947 I collected a number of digenetic trematodes from the gullets of Cantherine setosus (Waite) and Cantherines güntheri Macleay, and the parasites appear to be Lintonium vibex (Linton, 1899) Stunkard & Nigrelli, 1930.

Five chapters give concise accounts of the Platyhelminthes, the three orders of Trematoda and the morphology of the Monogenea, the Aspidogastrea and the Digenea, which will be especially useful for zoologists.
