Rhipidocotyle genovi n sp from the intestine of Gaidropsarus mediterraneus from the Black Sea



Rhipidocotyle genovi n sp from the intestine of Gaidropsarus mediterraneus from the Black Sea



Systematic Parasitology 33(3): 209-216



Rhipidocotyle genovi n. sp. is described from the fish Gaidropsarus mediterraneus (L.) (Gadiformes: Gadidae) in the Black Sea. Morphological features characteristic of this species include: an anterior sucker with seven prominent muscular appendages; a pharynx rather posterior in position; ovary and testes relatively anterior in position, usually anterior to the pharynx; a long (in relation to body length) sucker, cirrus-sac and excretory vesicle; the presence of a pre-oral lip; and contiguous vitelline fields which form an arch. The new species is distinguished from R. galeata, R. lamberti and Bucephalus marinum. This is the first member of the genus whose adults are recovered from Black Sea marine fishes. Metacercariae, which encyst in large numbers in the musculature and fins of the blenniid fishes Blennius tentacularis, B. sanguinolentus, B. pavo, B. sphinx and B. zvonimiri and exhibit a similar morphology to the adult, are described.
