Gyrodactylus arcuatus-like monogeneans collected from the gills of 3 goby species, Pomatoschistus minutus, P. lozanoi and P. pictus, from the Voordelta Area (SW Netherlands) were compared on a morphometric basis with G. arcuatus from its type host, the three-spined stickleback, Gasterosteus aculeatus. Univariate and multivariate analysis was carried out on measurements of 17 characters of the opisthaptoral hard parts of 268 specimens. The contribution of host-dependent and seasonal factors to… CONTINUE READING
