Three species of monogeneans were collected from Epinephelus morrhua, a deep-sea grouper from the external slope of the coral reef, off New Caledonia, South Pacific, and are the first parasites recorded from this fish species. Pseudorhabdosynochus morrhua n. sp. is characterised by: a sclerotised vagina with small sclerotised chambers and a short secondary canal; squamodiscs with central rows of rodlets which form closed ovals; and a scaly tegument. P. variabilis n. sp. has: a male… Expand
Four species of Pseudorhabdosynochus (Monogenea: Diplectanidae) from the camouflage grouper Epinephelus polyphekadion (Perciformes: Serranidae) off New Caledonia
TLDR
Gill diplectanid monogeneans from the camouflage grouper Epinephelus polyphekadion (Bleeker) collected in the coral reef lagoon of New Caledonia, South Pacific, comprise four species which are morphologically indistinguishable. Expand
Three new species of Pseudorhabdosynochus (Monogenea: Diplectanidae) from Vietnamese grouper ( Epinephelus spp.) (Perciformes: Serranidae)
TLDR
Three new species of monogen ea are described from cultured and wild grouper from Nha Trang and Cam Ranh Bays, Vietnam, and can be differentiated from otherPseudorhabdosynochus species by the vaginal structure. Expand
Monogeneans from Epinephelus chlorostigma (Val.) (Perciformes: Serranidae) off New Caledonia, with the description of three new species of diplectanids
TLDR
Interestingly, P. exoticoides resembles P. cyanopodus and P. podocyanus, suggesting close relationships between the diplectanid faunae of these two fish species, and D. femineum has a sclerotised vagina with the same organisation as those of species of Pseudorhabdosynochus Yamaguti, 1958. Expand

Monogeneans of the grouper Epinephelus tauvina (Perciformes, Serranidae) off Moorea, French Polynesia, with a description of Pseudorhabdosynochus pai n. sp. (Monogenea: Diplectanidae)
TLDR
The diplectanid fauna of E. tauvina corresponds to the pattern already found in a clade of grouper species, the members of which often harbour both a species of the ‘cupatus group’ and another species of Pseudorhabdosynochus Yamaguti, 1958. Expand
A redescription of Pseudorhabdosynochus epinepheli (Yamaguti, 1938), the type-species of Pseudorhabdosynochus Yamaguti, 1958 (Monogenea: Diplectanidae), and the description of P. satyui n. sp. from Epinephelus akaara off Japan
  • J. Justine
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Systematic Parasitology
  • 2008
TLDR
It is concluded that the three species of Diplectanum epinepheli are synonymous, as did Kritsky & Beverley-Burton (1986), and several causes are suspected for the alleged ‘generalist’ character of P. epinePheli. Expand

ABSTRACT A new nematode species, Raphidascaris (Ichthyascaris) etelidis n. sp. (Anisakidae), is described from male and female specimens found in the intestine of the deep-water longtail red snapperExpand

Pseudorhabdosynochus kasetsartensis n. sp. is described from the gills of the cloudy grouper Epinephelus erythrurus (Valenciennes) caught in the lower Gulf of Thailand. The new species isExpand
Pseudorhabdosynochus sulamericanus (Monogenea, Diplectanidae), a parasite of deep-sea groupers (Serranidae) occurs transatlantically on three congeneric hosts (Hyporthodus spp.), one from the Mediterranean Sea and two from the western Atlantic
TLDR
This transatlantic distribution raises questions with regard to phylogeography and assumptions about the allopatry of Atlantic grouper species from the Americas and Afro-Eurasia and proposes some hypothetical explanations for these findings. Expand
Are all species of Pseudorhabdosynochus strictly host specific? A molecular study.
TLDR
The COI gene of both host fish species and of their monogeneans was sequenced and suggested that acquisition of a less strict host specificity is an adaptation of P. cyanopodus to deep-sea hosts. Expand

Species of Pseudorhabdosynochus Yamaguti, 1958 (Monogenea: Diplectanidae) from Epinephelus fasciatus and E. merra (Perciformes: Serranidae) off New Caledonia and other parts of the Indo-Pacific Ocean, with a comparison of measurements of specimens prepared using different methods, and a description
  • J. Justine
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Systematic Parasitology

TLDR
Experiments on two species of Pseudorhabdosynochus demonstrated that the sclerotised hollow organs, such as the quadriloculate male copulatory organ and the vagina, may show differences in measurements of up to 50% when flattened. Expand

Pseudorhabdosynochus hirundineus n. sp. is described from specimens collected from the gills of Variola louti off Nouméa, New Caledonia, South Pacific. No diplectanid was found on V. albimarginataExpand
Monogeneans of the malabar grouper Epinephelus malabaricus (Perciformes, Serranidae) off New Caledonia, with a description of six new species of Pseudorhabdosynochus (Monogenea: Diplectanidae)
TLDR
The presence of 11 species of monogeneans in this fish, after a previous published record of 12 species in E. maculatus, provides additional argument for existence of a very rich fauna of monogenans in groupers, and an impressive parasite biodiversity in coral reef fish in general. Expand

These five species are the first diplectanids described from E. costae, and differ from each other and from all described species of Pseudorhabdosynochus by the morphology and size of their sclerotized vagina. Expand
