Multivariate analyses of morphometrical features from Apatemon gracilis (Rudolphi, 1819) Szidat, 1928 and A. annuligerum (v. Nordmann, 1832) (Digenea: Strigeidae) metacercariae

It is revealed that metacercarial morphometrics cannot confidently discriminate between Apatemon gracilis and A. annuligerum specimens, and some doubt is placed on its validity as a species discrete from these species.

Molecular evidence for the synonymy of two species of Apatemon Szidat, 1928, A. gracilis (Rudolphi, 1819) and A. annuligerum (von Nordmann, 1832) (Digenea: Strigeidae) parasitic as metacercariae in British fishes.

These sequence data provide strong evidence that the two species are con-specific and that A. annuligerum should be regarded as a junior synonym of A. gracilis.
