Comments.

This species was originally described as Haliotrema paracanthi  by Zhukov (1976) from L. apodus  from the Area Havana (off Cuba) and later transferred to Euryhaliotrema  by Kritsky and Boeger (2002) based on the drawings presented in the original description of Zhukov (1976). Subsequently, Kritsky (2012) redescribed E. paracanthi  based on specimens collected from L. jocu  and other lutjanids ( L. argentiventris  and L. griseus  ) from Florida and off Taboga Island, and Perlas Archipielago (both from Panama). Euryhaliotrema paracanthi  is differentiated from other species of Euryhaliotrema  infecting lutjanids by possessing a subterminal spine or hook on the accessory piece. The morphometrics of the present specimens did not differ from those reported in the redescription of E. paracanthi  .
