Article
Full-text available
We report eight species of Lintonium from tetraodontiform fishes from Australian waters and describe six of them as new. Two species are described from tetraodontids from the Great Barrier Reef (GBR): Lintonium kostadinovaen. sp. from Arothron nigropunctatus (Bloch & Schneider) and Arothron hispidus (Linnaeus); and Lintonium dronenin. sp. from A. n...

Scyphozoans have diverse symbiotic associations, including mutualism, commensalism and parasitism. Here we identify and report a new association between a juvenile parasitic sea anemone and Chrysaora kynthia from Australia. Twenty-five adult medusae were collected from the Gold Coast Seaway, Queensland and transferred to kreisels at the Griffith Se...

Examination of three species of batfishes (Teleostei: Epphippidae) from off Lizard and Heron Islands on the Great Barrier Reef led to the discovery of specimens of the trematode genus Paradiscogaster Yamaguti, 1934 (Digenea: Faustulidae). Morphological analysis demonstrated that the new specimens represented four morphotypes which we interpret to b...
Article
A new species, Hemipera cribbi sp. nov., is described. This trematode was found in three intertidal fish species: Scartichthys viridis (Valenciennes) (Blenniidae), Gobiesox marmoratus Jenyns (Gobiesocidae) and Myxodes viridis Valenciennes (Clinidae) from the central and southern coast of Chile. Of 233 individuals of S. viridis from the central coas...

The Indo-west Pacific is a marine bioregion stretching from the east coast of Africa to Hawaii, French Polynesia and Easter Island. An assessment of the literature from the region found reports of 2,582 trematode species infecting 1,485 fish species. Reports are concentrated in larger fishes, undoubtedly reflecting the tendency for larger hosts to...
Article

A brief summary of the early history of the study of Atlantic Ocean marine fish digeneans is followed by a discussion of the occurrence and distribution of these worms in the Atlantic Ocean and adjacent Eastern Pacific Ocean, using the Provinces of the ‘Marine Ecoregions’ delimited by Spalding et al. (Bioscience 57:573–583, 2007). The discussion is...

Labrid fish, commonly known as wrasses, are distributed in tropical and subtropical marine areas. However, the majority of biological knowledge of labrids, including parasitological studies, derives from the Indo Pacific. This study provides a list of the parasite species reported in labrids around the world based on published references from diffe...
Article
A total of 1523 individuals of 34 species of chaetodontids from the Great Barrier Reef were examined for faustulid trematodes. Specimens resembling Paradiscogaster glebulae Bray, Cribb & Barker, 1994 were found in nine chaetodontid species at three localities. These specimens are shown, on the basis of combined morphological and molecular analysis,...
Article
Full-text available
Paradiscogaster leichhardti sp. nov. (Digenea: Faustulidae) is described from the intestine of Chaetodontoplus meredithi (Perciformes: Pomacanthidae) from the southern Great Barrier Reef. The new species is distinguished by its elongate, spindle-shaped body and vitellarium which forms separate groups at the level of the anterior and posterior ends...
Article
Full-text available
A total of 2,868 individuals of 47 species of chaetodontids were examined for faustulids at seven major localities in the Tropical Indo-West Pacific (TIWP). Combined morphological and molecular analyses allowed us to describe Paradiscogaster oxleyi n. sp. from three localities in the TIWP and in three host species, Chaetodon lunulatus Quoy & Gaimar...

Con el objetivo de determinar y analizar la parasitofauna de cuatro especies de peces litorales de la isla Robinson Crusoe, se recolectó, entre el año 2008 y 2009, un total de 52 ejemplares de Scartichthys variolatus, 39 para Scorpis chilensis, 25 para Girella albostriata y 37 para Malapterus reticulatus. Cada ejemplar fue examinado exteriormente e...

This study analyzed the diet and parasites of an insular blenniid fish, Scartichthys variolatus, and then compared that with data published for two congeneric species from the South American Pacific coast, S. viridis and S. gigas. Fifty-two specimens of fish were collected during 2008 and 2009 from the intertidal zone of the Robinson Crusoe Island,...
