Hypocreadium caputvadum sp. nov. (Digenea, Lepocreadiidae) is described from the intestine of Balistes capriscus Gmelin collected from the Gulf of Gabès (Tunisia) in the southern Mediterranean Sea. This new species can be distinguished by a combination of characteristics shared by no other described species of Hypocreadium Ozaki, 1936. These characteristics include the presence of a distinct anterior notch, the follicular vitellarium confluent in the forebody, the presence of a muscular…

Hypocreadium toombo n. sp. is described from the balistid Pseudobalistes fuscus from the waters off New Caledonia. It is distinguished by a series of characters shared by no other Hypocreadium
New observations on the genus Hypocreadium Ozaki, 1936 (Digenea: Lepocreadiidae) in the Indo-West Pacific region, including the description of one new species
The similarity of the genus Lutianotrema to Hypocreadium is pointed out, but both known species of Lutia are described with ‘dorsal’ oral suckers.

The genera Lobatocreadium, Pseudoc readium, Hypocreadiam and Dermadena are redefined and host lists given and several nominal species of PseudOCreadium and HypocReadium are considered incertae sedis.
Pœcilostomatoid copepods parasitic on fishes off the west coast of Africa
Three species of fish-parasitizing poecilostomatoid copepods are redescribed based on material collected off the coasts of Mauritania and Senegambia. They are: Bomolochus unicirrus Richiardi from
