The life-cycle of Ergasilus sieboldi Nordmann (Copepoda: Poecilostomatoida), parasitic on British freshwater fish



The life-cycle of Ergasilus sieboldi Nordmann (Copepoda: Poecilostomatoida), parasitic on British freshwater fish



Journal of Natural History, 253: 559-582



The free-living stages in the life-cycle of E. sieboldi are described in detail. The life-cycle comprises 6 nauplius stages, 5 copepodid stages, and the adults. The naupliar dorsal organ was studied by scanning electron microscopy. This organ is retained in the first copepodid stage but lost in subsequent stages. The male maxilliped appears late in development, at copepodid V, and is fully functional after the final moult into the adult.
