Seventeen species of Diplectanidae were collected from the gills of 17 species of marine fishes from the Persian Gulf off Kuwait. Lepidotrema kuwaitensis sp. n. from Terapon puta (Teraponidae), Lamellodiscus furcillatus sp. n. from Diplodus noct (Sparidae), and Protolamellodiscus senilobatus sp. n. from Argyrops spinifer and A. filamentosus (Sparidae) are described. Diplectanum cazauxi from Sphyraena jello and S. obtusata (Sphyraenidae) (new host and geographic records), D. sillagonum from… Expand
New species of Diplectanum (Monogenoidea:Diplectanidae), and proposal of a new genus of the Dactylogyridae from the gills of gerreid fishes (Teleostei) from Mexico and Panama.
Analysis of morphological features of Diplectanum species on gerreids evidences that these parasites more closely resemble each other than the known species from sciaenids suggesting that split between gerreid fishes and scioenids resulted in parasite speciation. Expand
Acanthocercodes n. g. (Monogenoidea: Diplectanidae) for species parasitising threadfins (Perciformes: Polynemidae), with description of Acanthocercodes bullardi n. sp. from the Atlantic threadfin Polydactylus octonemus (Girard) and reassignment of three species of Diplectanum Monticelli, 1903 from t
A new genus of parasites of the gill lamellae of threadfins (Perciformes: Polynemidae) is proposed, characterised by species having peduncular spines composed of an anteriorly directed point and a flattened base from which an anterior root arises. Expand
Six New and One Previously Described Species of Pseudorhabdosynochus (Monogenoidea, Diplectanidae) Infecting the Gills of Groupers (Perciformes, Serranidae) From the Pacific Coasts of Mexico and Panama
Abstract Six new and 1 previously described species of Pseudorhabdosynochus (Diplectanidae) are described and/or reported from the gill lamellae of 5 serranid (Perciformes) fish species from theExpand
New Species of Rhabdosynochus Mizelle and Blatz 1941 (Monogenoidea: Diplectanidae) from the Gills of Centropomid Fishes (Teleostei) Off the Pacific Coast of Mexico
The origin of the present diplectanid on centropomids is discussed, and it is suggested that this may be the result of allopatric speciation as a result of the uplift of the Panamanian Isthmus thereby separating the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans during Pleistocene. Expand
Diplectanids infesting the gills of the barramundi Lates calcarifer (Bloch) (Perciformes: Centropomidae), with the proposal of Laticola n. g. (Monogenoidea: Diplectanidae)
Four species of the Monogenoidea, Laticola lingaoensis n. sp., L. latesi (Tripathi, 1957) n. comb. [previously Pseudorhabdosynochus latesi (Tripathi, 1957) Kritsky & Beverley-Burton, 1986], L.Expand
Dactylogyrids (Monogenoidea) Parasitizing the Gills of Spinefoots (Teleostei: Siganidae): Revision of Pseudohaliotrema, with Redescriptions of P. sphincteroporus and P. molnari from the Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Abstract Nine species of spinefoots, Siganus spp., were examined for Pseudohaliotrema spp. (Monogenoidea, Dactylogyridae) from Australia, China, and Egypt. The findings of PseudohaliotremaExpand
Diplectanid parasites of Lithognathus mormyrus (L.) (Teleostei: Sparidae) from the Mediterranean Sea, with the description of Lamellodiscusflagellatus n. sp. (Monogenea: Diplectanidae)
A new nomenclature for a male copulatory organ with two articulated pieces is proposed: the hollow piece is referred to as the penis and the term ‘vectis’ for the entirely sclerotised piece. Expand
Monogeneans of the grouper Epinephelus tauvina (Perciformes, Serranidae) off Moorea, French Polynesia, with a description of Pseudorhabdosynochus pai n. sp. (Monogenea: Diplectanidae)
The diplectanid fauna of E. tauvina corresponds to the pattern already found in a clade of grouper species, the members of which often harbour both a species of the ‘cupatus group’ and another species of Pseudorhabdosynochus Yamaguti, 1958. Expand
Lamellodiscus (Monogenea: Diplectanidae) parasites of Dentex macrophthalmus (Teleostei: Sparidae) from the North Atlantic coast of Africa, with a redescription of L. dentexi Aljoshkina, 1984, and description of three new species.
Lamellodiscus dentexi Aljoshkina, 1984, a gill parasite of Dentex macrophthalmus (Bloch), is redescribed based on new material from the northwest coast of Africa (Senegal and Morocco) to form the "elongatus" type within the "elegans" group. Expand
