External Anatomy Of The Female Haemobaphes Cyclopterina, A Copepod Parasite Of Marine Fishes

, : External Anatomy Of The Female Haemobaphes Cyclopterina, A Copepod Parasite Of Marine Fishes. Journal of Parasitology 49: 663-677

A single complete specimen from a new host, the snake blenny (Lumpenus lumpretaeformis), caught in the Bay of Fundy, is described, with particular attention to the anterior end. The appendages and oral area are similar to those of other lernaeocerids, notably Lernaeocera branchialis, but comparison with the only published description of the first copepodid stage suggests that changes during development may be more extensive than usual. Synonymy, hosts, and distributional records are tabulated. H. cyclopterina appears to be a circumboreal host-tolerant plastic species, possibly comprising diceraus Wilson, 1917, and theragrae Yamaguti, 1939. The genus is placed in the Lernaeoceridae Milne Edwards, 1840, and the name LERNAEOCERI-FORMES suggested to replace Lernaeiformes Gurney, 1933, within the Caligoida.
