Inferred relationships of Lepocreadium oyabitcha and Opechonoides opisthoporus n. sp. within the Lepocreadiidae based on a maximum likelihood analysis of the 28S rDNA dataset. The newly generated sequences are in bold. Bootstrap support values are shown above the nodes, and where relationships were replicated in the Bayesian inference analysis, posterior probabilities are shown below. Support values below 0.85 or 85 are not shown. Outgroup taxa are species of the Aephnidiogenidae and Gorgocephalidae. The scale bar indicates the number of substitutions per site

A new species of lepocreadiid, Opechonoides opisthoporus n. sp. , is described infecting 12 pomacentrid fish species from the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, with Abudefduf whitleyi Allen & Robertson as the type-host. This taxon differs from the only other known member of the genus, Opechonoides gure Yamaguti, 1940, in the sucker width ratio, cirrus...
