Abstract:

Three immature didymozoids are reported from fishes of Palawan Island, Philippines Torticaecum nipponicum Yamaguti, 1942, from Eleotris fusca Immature Didymozoid A from Puntius binotatus and Immature Didymozoid B from Euthynnus yaito. A review of didymozoids listed as Distomum fenestratum Linton, 1907, in the U. S. National Museum Helminthological Collection resulted in their separation into two district forms D. fenestratum from Gymnothorax moringa, Haemulon plumieri, H. sciurus, H. parra, Remora remora, Scorpaena sp., and Pseudupeneus maculatus and Immature Didymozoid C from Brevoortia tyrannus, Ammodytes americanus, and Etrumeus sadina. Bucephaloides sibi Yamaguti, 1940 Hopkins, 1954 Bucephalidae is reported from Euthynnus yaito and Pelorohelmins palawanensis gen. n., sp. n. Hemiuroidea from Gazza minuta is described. A new subfamily, Pelorohelminthinae, is created for the latter genus and appears to be most closely related to the family Isoparorchiidae.
