Description of gyrodactylus micropteri new species from micropterus dolomieui in lake huron with a review of the taxonomy of species of gyrodactylus monogenea parasitizing centrarchid fishes in north america



Canadian Journal of Zoology 65(6): 1337-1339



An extensive collection of Gyrodactylus from centrarchid fishes in Ontario [Canada] is examined. Gyrodactylus goerani Hanek and Fernando, 1971 is recorded from Ambloplites rupestris in Lake Ontario and Lepomis gibbosus, Lepomis macrochirus, and Pomoxis sp. in Lake Erie. Gyrodactylus macrochiri Hoffman and Putz, 1964 is recorded from L. gibbosus in Algonquin Park. Gyrodactylus micropteri n. sp. is described from Micropterus dolomieui in Lake Huron. The new species has a marginal hook sickle with a blade that toward its tip curves substantially inward. Examination of type specimens of G. goerani, G. macrochiri, and three other species specific to centrarchid fishes in North America (Gyrodactylus gloriosi Rogers, 1968, Gyrodactylus heterodactylus Rogers and Wellborn, 1965, and Gyrodactylus lineadactylus Wellborn, 1967) revealed that the original species descriptions are inadequate with respect to the diagnostically important marginal hook sickles. The haptoral sclerites of these species are redrawn.
