Prodistomum lichtenfelsi n. sp. (Digenea: Lepocreadiidae) is described; it was obtained from the intestine of the longtail bass, Hemanthias leptus (Ginsburg), collected from the Bay of Campeche in the Gulf of Mexico. This is the first record of a parasite from this host. Prodistomum lichtenfelsi n. sp. is similar to P. hynnodi, P. menidiae, and P. waltairensis in that it possesses a prepharynx that is distinctly shorter (153 μm [110–210] long) than the combined length of the esophagus (163 μm…

Attention is drawn to the host-parasite relationship associating a lepocreadiine lepokreadiid with a perciform host, which may indicate that host and parasite have colonised the deep sea simultaneously and co-evolved in that environment.

The Lepocreadiidae (Digenea) of fishes of the north-east Atlantic: review of the genera Opechona Looss, 1907 and Prodistomum Linton, 1910

The genera Opechona Looss and Prodistomum Linton are redefined: the latter is re-established, its diagnostic character being the lack of a uroproct. Pharyngora Lebour and Neopechona Stunkard are

Some Digenetic Trematodes of Marine Fishes of Beaufort, North Carolina

In 1928, a collection of marine fish trematodes was made at the United States Bureau of Fisheries Station at Beaufort, North Carolina; thirty-six of fifty-one species of fishes examined contained

Parasitology meets ecology on its own terms: Margolis et al. revisited.

Suggestions for various terms used by parasitologists when describing the ecology of parasites are provided in an attempt to foster consistent use and to make terms used in parasite ecology easier to interpret for those who study free-living organisms.
