  journal={Systematic Parasitology},
A new species, Gonapodasmius epinepheli (Didymozoidae: Gonapodasmiinae), is described from the fish Epinephelus tauvina from the Arabian Gulf. It differs from most other members of the genus in the presence of a bulbous swelling at the distal end of the ovary, the presence of a characteristic bulge in the genital junction region, in the dense mass of glandular cells around the intestinal limbs and in the presence of an empty metraterm and vas deferens in the male and female respectively. The…

A new species can be distinguished from congeneric species by the site of infection, the arrangement of the two individuals in the cyst, the numbers of ovarian and vitelline terminal branches, the size and shape of testes, and the presence of a seminal receptacle.
Gonapodasmius epinepheli observed in cage cultured orange spotted grouper ( Epinephelus coioides ) in Southern Thailand : geographical distribution of parasite and host response

Identification and histopathological study of trematode, Gonapodasmius epinepheli in orange spotted grouper, Epinephelus coioides.
Various stages of the life cycle of this parasite were discussed in this study and it was revealed that larvae were mainly embedded under the gill epithelium and eggs of the parasite were disseminated in some organs such as gills and uterus lumen.
Only one snapper fish and a small proportion of the silver pomfrets were found infected with the nematode, Hysterothylacium sp.
The trematodes of groupers (Serranidae: Epinephelinae): knowledge, nature and evolution
The Epinephelinae may well be typical of most groups of marine fishes both in the extent to which their trematode parasites are known and in that co-evolution has contributed little to the evolution of their communities of trematodes.
