X-cell epidermal lesions are described from a single specimen of the hardhead catfish Anus felis (Ariidae). The lesions exhibited a n unusual growth pattern but did not involve any visceral organs. Histologically, the lesions resembled those previously described for coldwater f~shes . This is the first report of X-cell lesions from Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana, USA, and the hardhead catfish represents the first warmwater species affected with the d ~ s e a s e .
