  • Based on a molecular and morphological study, a new monocotylid genus, Holocephalocotyle n. gen. is proposed to accommodate Holocephalocotyle monstrosae n. sp., found on the olfactory rosette of the rabbit fish, Chimaera monstrosa Linnaeus (Chondrichthyes, Chimaeridae), from the Mediterranean Sea off Algeria. Identification of fish hosts was confirmed by molecular barcoding of the COI gene. A partial 28S rDNA sequence (D1–D2 domain) of Holocephalocotyle monstrosae was obtained; it was distinct… CONTINUE READING
