 en Monogenean parasitic on marine fishes from peru and chile: three new species and two new combinations
Oliva, Marcelo E & Luque, Jose L

Abstract

Five species of monogeneans collected from marine fishes of
the Pacific coast of Chile and Peru were studied. Three of
them are new species: Interniloculus chilensis n. sp.
(Capsalidae), Neoheterobothrium insularis n. sp.
(Diclidophoridae) and Loxura peruensis n. sp. (Axinidae)
parasitic on Sebastes capensis (Scorpaenidae), Paralichthys
sp. (Bothiidae) and Belone scapularis (Belonidae),
respectively. Two new combinations are proposed, Intracotyle
neghmei (Microcotylidae) for Neobivagina neghmei Villalba,
1987 and Hargicotyle conceptionensis (Diclidophoridae) for
Choricotyle conceptionensis Villalba, 1987.
