(Caudotestis) lethrini from L. nebulosus and L. miniatus. Both trematodes are re-described on the basis of certain additional morphological features as well as new host and locality records. PIagioporus (Paraplagioporus) saoudin. sp., from Acanthopagurus bifasciatus, represents the second species in the subgenus. The new species is characterised by the length of oesophagus and prepharynx, situation of cirrus pouch and testes and extension of vitellaria.
