Abstract Simultaneous multiple infestation of parasitic crustacean species involving a cymothoid isopod, Cymothoa frontalis Milne Edward, 1840 and four species of copepods such as Lernanthropus
Mothocya renardi (Bleeker, 1857) (Crustacea: Isopoda: Cymothoidae) parasitising Strongylura leiura (Bleeker) (Belonidae) off the Malabar coast of India: Redescription, occurrence and life-cycle
Mothocya renardi (Bleeker, 1857), a protandrically hermaphroditic cymothoid, parasitising the banded needle fish Strongylura leiura from the Malabar Coast, India is redescribed and morphological data for different life-cycle stages, including males, females and larvae are provided to help precise identification of the female M. renardi irrespective of their stage.
High prevalence and infestation of Mothocya renardi (Isopoda, Cymothoidae) in marine fish Strongylura leiura (Bleeker 1850)
The parasitic infestation on the one of the important marine fish Strongylura leiura during the 2 years period between June 2009 and May 2011 and identified as Mothocya renardi was focused on.
Mixed parasitic infestation in D icentrarchus labrax, Dicentrarchus punctatus and Sparus aurata in Suez Canal
Abundant mixed parasitic infestation implicating Cymothoid isopods, Lernanthropus, Caligus, Praniza larvae of Gnathiids, Monogeneans and Digeneans was frequently seen and there were double and tripartite parasitism and a quaternary parasitism especially by crustaceans.
Cymothoa frontalis, a cymothoid isopod parasitizing the belonid fish Strongylura strongylura from the Malabar Coast (Kerala, India): redescription, description, prevalence and life cycle
The strict host and site specificities of the parasite, as borne out from the present study, and its high degree of prevalence in the host make C. frontalis as an ideal model organism to study the strategies to be adopted for the management of parasites infesting edible fishes.
Distribution pattern of crustacean ectoparasites of freshwater fish from Brazil.
The purpose of this study was to use the informations relating to parasite crustaceans species that was published over the course of one century (1913 to 2013), in order to search for infestation and
Review of Mothocya Costa, in Hope, 1851 (Crustacea: Isopoda: Cymothoidae) from Southern Africa, with the Description of a New Species
A key to the south-western Indian Ocean species of Mothocya is given, and a table summarising recent and new nomenclatural acts in the genus is provided.

Parasitic copepods on immigrant and native clupeid fishes caught in Egyptian coastal waters off Alexandria
Three species of parasitic copepods, one each from the siphonostomatoid families Lernanthropidae and Lernaeopodidae and one from the cyclopoid family Bomolochidae, are redescribed based on material
A new copepod (Siphonostomatoida: Lernanthropidae) parasitic on a Red Sea immigrant dragonet (Actinopterygii: Callionymidae), with a review of records of parasitic copepods from dragonets
A new species of parasitic copepod of the family Lernanthropidae is described from an immigrant population of the blotchfin dragonet Callionymus filamentosus Valenciennes in the Eastern Mediterranean, with differences in the shape of the cephalothorax and in the extent of the dorsal plate.
Species of Caligus Müller, 1785 (Copepoda: Caligidae) parasitic on marine fishes of Taiwan
Six species of copepods of the genus Caligus (Caligidae, Siphonostomatoida) parasitic on marine fishes of Taiwan are reported. They are: C. absens n. sp. from Priacanthus blochii and P. macracanthus;
Seasonal fluctuation of the prevalence of cymothoids representing the genus Nerocila (Crustacea, Isopoda), parasitizing commercially exploited marine fishes from the Malabar Coast, India
All the collected Nerocila species showed significant seasonal fluctuations in the prevalence of infestation, reaching maximum from October through April and minimum (or total absence of the parasites) from May through September.
Hastatus faviae n. gen., n. sp., a xarifiid copepod parasitic in the honeycomb coral of Taiwan
The new species is characterized by having a spear-shaped mandible carrying a bent tip covered with denticles, biramous legs 1 and 2, uniramous legs 3 and 4, and the absence of leg 5 together with the fifth pediger.
