Saturnius papernai Overstreet, 1977 is recorded from the stomach of Mugil cephalus L. (Osteichthyes, Mugilidae) in the Black Sea (a new geographical record) off the southern part of the Bulgarian coast. The species is redescribed and figured on the basis of the Black Sea specimens. Some amendments to the generic diagnosis are proposed concerning the presence of a uterine seminal receptacle and a posterior (third) circular flange. It is proposed that the occurrence of S. papernai is a feature of… 
A revision of the species of Saturnius Manter, 1969 (Digenea: Hemiuridae), parasites of mullets (Teleostei: Mugilidae)
The genus Saturnius Manter, 1969 is defined, its species re-examined and a key to the species presented and a principal component analysis, carried out after adding the new data to those of Blasco-Costa et al. (2006), confirms the species identification.
Saturnius minutus n. sp. and S. dimitrovi n. sp. (Digenea: Hemiuridae) from Mugil cephalus L. (Teleostei: Mugilidae), with a multivariate morphological analysis of the Mediterranean species of Saturnius Manter, 1969
Three species of the bunocotyline genus Saturnius Manter, 1969 are described from the stomach lining of mugilid fishes of the Mediterranean and Black Seas, distinguished morphometrically using univariate and multivariate analyses.
The translocated Liza haematocheila (Teleostei: Mugilidae) as a new host of four species of Saturnius Manter, 1969 (Digenea: Hemiuridae) within its invasive range in the Black Sea
The morphological and morphometric similarities between the specimens of Saturnius sp.papernai from L. haematocheila and a small form of S. aurata indicate the possible existence of another, cryptic species.
Three new species of Polyclithrum Rogers, 1967 (Gyrodactylidae: Monogenea) from mugilid fishes from Australia and Brazil, with a redescription of P. mugilini Rogers, 1967
Four species of Polyclithrum mugilini Rogers, 1967 can be distinguished by the size and shape of haptoral sclerites, but in particular by accessory bar number 3, the dorsal bar, the marginal hooks and the hamulus point to shaft angle.


A redescription and a new geographical record in the Black Sea of Bacciger israelensis Fischthal, 1980 (Trematoda: Fellodistomidae).
Re-examination of the morphology of B. israelensis showed some new details, including Laurer's canal opens dorsally a short distance anterior to the excretory pore and seminal receptacle situated posterior to ventral sucker and ventral to ovary.
