Many metacercarial cysts were found in the muscles of marine goldeye rockfish, Sebastes thompsoni, which were purchased at a market in Kanazawa City on the Japan Sea coast of central Japan. From morphological features, they were identified as Stephanostomum hispidum (Yamaguti, 1934) Manter, 1940 (Trematoda, Digenea: Acanthocolpidae). This is the first report of S. thompsoni as the second intermediate host for S. hispidum.
