Studies On The Trematodes Of The Genus Enenterum Linton, 1910 (Opecoelidae) And The Oenus Pseudocreadium Layman, 1930 (Lepocreadiidae) From Some Red Sea Fish
MetadataShow full item record
The genera Enenterum and Pseudocreadium are reviewed. It is suggested that Pseudocreadium indicum Madhavi, 1972 should be considered a synonym of P. balistes Nagaty, 1942. Enenterum pimelopteri Nagaty, 1942, is redescribed from Pimelopterus tahmel and Pses4ocreadhm elongata Nagaty, 1942 is redescribed from Acanthurus sohal and their specific diagnosis are amended. Enenterum ghardaguensis n. sp. is described from Pimelopterus tahmel and Pseudocreadium laymani n. sp. is described from Diodon hystrix. The characters separating the two species from related species of their genera are outlined. A key to species of the genus Enenterum is also proposed.
