Species of gyrodactylus monogenea gyrodactylidae from freshwater fishes in southern england uk with a description of gyrodactylus rogatensis new species from the bullhead cottus gobio



Journal of Natural History 19(4): 791-810



Species (11) of Gyrodactylus were found infecting 5 spp. of freshwater fishes collected from Rogate (West Sussex, England). These were G. arcuatus and G. gasterostei from Gasterosteus aculeatus, Gyrodactylus pungitii from Pungitius pungitius, G. aphyae, G. laevis, G. limneus, G. macronychus and G. minimus from Phoxinus phoxinus, G. pavlovskyi and G. sedelnikowi from Noemacheilus barbatulus and G. rogatensis sp. nov. from Cottus gobio. G. (Limnonephrotus) rogatensis is a member of the G. wageneri species group, and can be distinguished from closely related species (G. aphyae, G. pungitii and G. gasterostei) by its relatively long marginal hooks and the abruptly tapering toes of its marginal hook sickles. Each parasite was collected from a single host species, and was narrowly site-specific. With the exception of G. rogatensis, all the gyrodactylids collected at Rogate also occur in Continental Eurasis, suggesting that they colonized Britain with their hosts via the Doggerland land bridge after the Devensian glaciation. This study demonstrated both the potential of Gyrodactylus for studies of parasite-host coevolution, and the need for critical taxonomic analysis of members of the genus.
