The following three species of the Philometridae (Nematoda: Dracunculoidea) are described from marine perciform fishes of the Everglades National Park (northern Gulf of Mexico), Florida, U.S.A.: Philometra brevispicula sp. n. (male and females) from the subcutaneous tissue of mouth of the gray snapper Lutjanus griseus (Linnaeus) (Lutjanidae), Philometroides grandipapillatus sp. n. (only females) from pectoral fin muscle of the crevalle jack Caranx hippos (Linnaeus) (Carangidae), and Caranginema…

New Observations on Philometrid Nematodes (Philometridae) in Marine Fishes from the Northern Gulf of Mexico and the Indian River Lagoon of Florida (Usa), with First Description of the Male of Caranginema americanum
TLDR
The male of C. americanum, the type species of Caranginema Moravec, Montoya-Mendoza, and Salgado-Maldonado, 2008, is described for the first time and general morphology is similar to that of males of Philometra and Philometroides species.

TLDR
Three new species of philometrids (Nematoda: Philometridae) are described from females collected in marine perciform fishes off the northern coast of Australia, confirming the possibility of the coexistence of more philometrid species in different sites within sympatric specimens of one and the same definitive host.
Two new gonad-infecting species of Philometra Costa, 1845 (Nematoda: Philometridae) from marine fishes off the northern coast of Australia
TLDR
Two new gonad-infecting species of Philometra Costa, 1845 (Nematoda: Philometridae) are described from the ovary of marine perciform fishes off the northern coast of Australia (near Darwin) to parasitise marine fishes in Australian waters.
Philometrids (Nematoda: Philometridae) in carangid and serranid fishes off New Caledonia, including three new species
TLDR
Three new species of philometrid nematodes (Philometridae) parasitising carangid and serranid fishes off New Caledonia, South Pacific are revealed, including three new species characterised mainly by the length and structure of the spicules and gubernaculum, body size, their location in the host and the type of host.
New records of philometrids (Nematoda: Philometridae) from marine fishes off Australia, including description of four new species and erection of Digitiphilometroides gen. n.
TLDR
Six species of the Philometridae were recorded from marine fishes off the northern coast of Australia in 2015 and 2016, with new gonad-infecting species, P. arafurensis and P. mawsonae, characterised mainly by the length of spicules and structure of the gubernaculum, whereas P. papillicaudata is established based on the presence of unique digital cuticular ornamentations on the female body.
Three new gonad-infecting species of Philometra (Nematoda: Philometridae) parasitic in Lutjanus spp. (Lutjanidae) in the northern Gulf of Mexico off Florida, USA.
TLDR
Three new gonad-infecting species of Philometra Costa, 1845 (Nematoda: Philometridae) are described from marine fishes of the genus Lutjanus Bloch in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
Records of two gonad-infecting species of Philometra (Nematoda: Philometridae) from marine fishes off Iraq, including the description of Philometra parabrevicollis n. sp. from the bigeye snapper Lutjanus lutjanus Bloch (Pisces, Lutjanidae)
TLDR
The description of this new species again confirms a high degree of host specificity of gonad-infecting species of Philometra in congeneric lutjanid hosts, and its subgravid females are described for the first time.
Five new species of philometrid nematodes (Philometridae) from marine fishes off Java, Indonesia.
TLDR
Five new species of the Philometridae (Nematoda: Dracunculoidea) are described from female specimens collected from marine fishes off the southwestern coast of Java, Indonesia, the only nominal philometrid species recorded from Indonesian waters.
Two new gonad-infecting species of Philometra (Nematoda: Philometridae) parasitic in Lutjanus spp. (Osteichthyes: Lutjanidae) in the Bay of Bengal, India
TLDR
Two new gonad-infecting species of Philometra Costa, 1845 (Nematoda: Philometridae) are described from marine fishes of the genus Lutjanus Bloch in the Bay of Bengal, off the eastern coast of India.
Two new species of Philometra Costa, 1845 (Nematoda: Philometridae) from Mycteroperca spp. (Serranidae) in the North-West Atlantic and northern Gulf of Mexico, USA
TLDR
The present descriptions of an additional two new philometrids increases the number of recorded nominal species of Philometra parasitising groupers (Serranidae) in the Gulf of Mexico to nine.
