TLDR
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.

TLDR
The conclusion that the three Philometra species in the current study are independent is supported by a molecular comparison of the internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) region of the ribosomal DNA between P. sawara, P. nemipteri, and P. sciaenae.
