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


, : Benedeniine capsalid monogeneans from Australian fishes: pathogenic species, site-specificity and camouflage. Journal of Helminthology 70(3): 177-184

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.

Considerable diversity was found in the reproductive behaviour of benedeniine (capsalid) monogenean parasites.
