 en Neotropical Monogenoidea. 25. Anacanthorus penilabiatus n. sp. (Dactylogyridae, Anacanthorinae) from Piaractus mesopotamicus (Osteichthyes, Serrasalmidae), Cultivated in the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil

Abstract

Anacanthorus penilabiatus n. sp. is described from the
serrasalmid fish, Piaractus mesopotamicus (Holmberg, 1887),
cultivated in the Centro de Aquicultura, Universidade Estadual
Paulista.  The new species is characterized by having a
relatively straight copulatory organ with a long olipo on the
distal margin and a  median longitudinal flap, and  a
copulatory ligament.  The large size of the infrapopulations
of this species of parasite indicates that it should be
considered a potential agent causing  losses in aquaculture of 
the fish host.
