Caligus dubius was first described by Scott in 1894 from material collected from the plankton of Loanda Harbour, Gulf of Guinea. Both sexes were present in Scott's material but his inadequate description was based only on the female. The single subsequent record of C. dubius is that of Leigh-Sharpe (1934) who assigned some material from the Siboga expedition to C. dubius. No host or station data are available for Leigh-Sharpe's material. The type material of C. dubius is stored in the…

A new genus of sea louse (Copepoda:Siphonostomatoida: Caligidae) parasitic on the bluespine unicornfish (Naso unicornis).
TLDR
Preliminary phylogenetic analysis suggests that the new genus represents an early offshoot from the main caligid lineage, basal to the Paralebion-Tuxophorus-Caligus clade identified by Boxshall and Justine (2005).

The discovery of Caligustemnodontis Brian, 1924 (Copepoda: Caligidae) from the bluefish Pomatomus saltatrix (Linnaeus) in the eastern Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
The temnodontis variety of Caligus mauritanicus Brian, 1924 described by Brian (1924) is a valid species known only from a single host species, Pomatomus saltatrix (Linnaeus) and is most closely related to the Indo-Pacific species C. pagrosomi Yamaguti, 1939.
Caligus solea n. sp. (Copepoda: Caligidae) parasitic on the common sole Solea solea (Linnaeus) from the north-eastern Mediterranean off the Turkish coast
TLDR
A new species of caligid copepod is described from the common sole Solea solea (Linnaeus) caught off the north-eastern Mediterranean coast of Turkey, which differs from its congeners within the macarovi-group in the number of sensillae on each papilla on and around the postantennal process, and the absence of serrations along the distal margin of the maxilla.
