A new species and a new Chinese record of monogeneans from marine fishes in the South China Sea (Trematoda: Monogenea)



A new species and a new Chinese record of monogeneans from marine fishes in the South China Sea (Trematoda: Monogenea)



Acta Zootaxonomica Sinica 27(4): 677-684



Two species of monogeneans collected from cultured fishes of the South China Sea are reported. Megalocotyloides hongkongensis sp. nov. (Capsalidae: Trochopodinae) was identified from the fins and skin of the sesame grouper Epinephelus rhyncholepis (Bleeker) (Serranidae) and is distinguished from other species of Megalocotyloides. Anoplodiscus spari (Yamaguti, 1958) Ogawa and Egusa, 1981 (Anoplodiscidae) is recorded for the first time from China, collected from the skin of Acanthopagrus schlegeli (Bloch) (Sparidae).
