In the course of a three-year study conducted from January 2017 till November 2019, a total of 279 individuals belonging to 11 batoid species off northern coasts of the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman were examined for the genus Rhinebothrium Linton, 1890 (Rhinebothriidea: Rhinebothriidae). Infection of Maculabatis randalli (Last, Manjaji-Matsumo...
Correct identification of elasmobranch species is crucial for taxonomic and parasitological research. Although molecular barcoding may be the fastest choice to determine the identity of a given species, robust and fast species level identification in the field using morphological characters is essential. During this study, 389 specimens representin...
During a study of the rhinebothriideans of rays in the Gulf of Oman, two new species of Rhinebothrium Linton, 1890, Rhinebothrium kruppi sp. n. and R. persicum sp. n., were identified in Glaucostegus granulatus (Cuvier). Some significant features that distinguish R. kruppi sp. n. from R. persicum sp. n. include: scolex characteristics (hinged with...
In the present study, 81 specimens of Capoeta capoeta gracilis (Keyserling, 1861) were collected from the Shiroud River, the Caspian drainage basin, Iran in June and October 2007. The fish were examined for infection with the nematode Rhabdochona fortunatowi (Dinnik, 1933). Nematodes were counted and sexed, then the sex ratio and intestinal site pr...
