Abstract
Sparks & Thatcher record a new species of Stephanostomum, S. interruptum n.sp., from Bairdiella chrysura, Micropogon undulatus, Cynoscion nebulosus and Ocyurus chrysurus from the Gulf of Mexico. The new species is described and illustrated and is compared with the two most closely related species, S. cloacum and S. elongatum.
