Benedeniine capsalid monogeneans from Australian fishes: pathogenic species, site-specificity and camouflage


Journal of Helminthology 70(3): 177-184
Benedeniine capsalid monogeneans from Australian fishes: pathogenic species, site-specificity and camouflage
There are about 70 species of capsalid monogeneans in the Benedeniinae worldwide but only about half are described from the diverse fish fauna in the Pacific Ocean. Up to 1992, only 5 species of benedeniines were known from Australia. 2 potentially destructive species of benedeniines, Benedenia seriolae from Seriola lalandi and B. sciaenae from Argyrosomus hololepidotus from temperate Australian waters, are new host and geographic records for these monogeneans.
