A new nematode species, Philometra (Ranjhinema) salgadoi n. sp., is described from females found in the ocular cavity of the red grouper (Epinephelus morio) from the Mexican coast of the Gulf of Mexico (type locality Telchac, Yucatán). The nematode is characterized by the presence of 8 conspicuously large, crescent-shaped, fleshy cephalic papillae of the external circle and 2 small, subterminal papilla-like projections on the caudal end. Another philometrid species, Philometroides belousae n… 

Two species of Philometra (Nematoda, Philometridae) from serranid fishes off New Caledonia

Two nematode species of the genus Philometra Costa, 1845, and P. lateolabracis, 1935, were recorded from the ocular cavity and ovaries of serranid fishes off New Caledonia, South Pacific, for the first time.

Two new species of Philometra (Nematoda: Philometridae) parasitic in the perciform fish Cynoscion nebulosus (Sciaenidae) in the estuaries of South Carolina, USA.

Philometra carolinensis parasitic in the host's ovary is most similar to P. lateolabracis (Yamaguti, 1935) in female morphology, but distinctly differs from it in possessing conspicuously short spicules with heavily sclerotized distal parts.

New philometrids (Nematoda, Philometridae) from head tissues of two serranid fishes (Epinephelus morio and Mycteroperca microlepis) off Florida, northern Gulf of Mexico

A new species of nematode, Philometra morii sp. nov. (Philometridae), is described from males and gravid females collected from the mouth cavity of the red grouper, Epinephelus morio (Valenciennes)

Pseudorhabdosynochus capurroi sp. n. (Monogenea: Diplectanidae) from the gills of Mycteroperca bonaci (Pisces: Serranidae) of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

A new monogenean species, Pseudorhabdosynochus capurroi sp. n., is described from the gills of the black grouper, Mycteroperca bonaci (Poey) (Serranidae), from the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. The new

Paracapillaria epinepheli n. sp. (Nematoda: Capillariidae) from the red grouper Epinephelus morio (Pisces) from Mexico

A new nematode species, Paracapillaria epinespheli, is described from the stomach of the marine fish Epinephelus morio, the red grouper, from coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico in Yucatan, southeastern Mexico.

A new species of Spirophilometra (Nematoda: Philometridae) from the yellowfin snook Centropomus robalito (Osteichthyes) in southern Mexico.

A new nematode species, Spirophilometra pacifica sp. n. (Philometridae), is described from gravid female specimens collected from the mouth cavity (the upper palate) of the fish (yellow snook)

Female morphology of Philometra parasiluri (Nematoda, Philometridae), an ocular parasite of the Amur catfish Silurus asotus in Japan

Philometra parasiluri probably has a pronounced annual maturation cycle with the period of the production of larvae in the late spring and summer and the present finding represents the third documented record of this species.

Margolisianum bulbosum n. gen., n. sp. (Nematoda: Philometridae) from the southern flounder, Paralichthys lethostigma (Pisces: Bothidae), in Mississippi Sound, USA.

A new species of a philometrid nematode, Margolisianum bulbosum, is described from the subcutaneous tissue in the mouth, head, and eye of the southern flounder, Paralichthys lethostigma, from Mississippi Sound.

Morphological and genetic description of two new species of philometrid nematodes (Philometridae) parasitic in needlefishes (Belonidae) from estuaries of Florida, USA.

Two new species of philometrid nematodes (Philometridae) from needlefishes in Florida are described based on morphological and genetic characteristics and phylogenetic reconstructions show each of the new species comprise discrete ancestor-descendent lineages.

Two new nematodes, Paraseuratoides ophisterni gen. et sp. n. (Quimperiidae) and Philometra ophisterni sp. n. (Philometridae), from the swamp-eel Ophisternon aenigmaticum in Mexico.

Two new nematodes are described based on specimens recovered from the intestine and mesentery of the swamp-eel Ophisternon aenigmaticum Rosen et Greenwood from a canal of the Papaloapan River in Tlacotalpan, State of Veracruz, Mexico.



A Revision of the Genus Philometra Costa, 1845

1. Characters of taxonomic value in the family Philometridae are discussed; the important structures taken into account are the cuticle, cephalic papillae, oesophagus and the tail of the parasite. 2.
