MCO base 20 (20-22; 4) long. Ventral anchor 40 (35-43; 10) long; dorsal anchor 45 (39-47; 12) long. Ventral bar 35 (33-38; 7) long; dorsal bar 42 (40-48; 7) long.

Comments.

Haliotrema striatohamus  Zhukov, 1981 was redescribed and transferred to Haliotrematoides  Kritsky, Yang & Sun, 2009 by Mendoza-Franco et al. (2009) as Hal. striatohamus  based on specimens collected from the haemulids, H. aurolineatum  , H. plumieri  , and Haemulon sciurus  (Shaw, 1803) from the southern coast of Quintana Roo, Mexico. This species is characterized in part, in having two accessory sclerites [4 (4-5; 6) long], at the tip of the superficial root of each the ventral anchor.

Molecular data.

In the present study, partial molecular sequences (726-746 bp) of the 28S rRNA gene (D1-D3) of Hal. striatohamus  are provided for the first time. These sequences shows that Hal. striatohamus  collected from Campeche is a sister species of the clade containing Hal. guttati  and Haliotrematoides spinatus  Kritsky & Mendoza-Franco, 2009 (see Figure 1) from L. guttatus  off Taboga Island (type locality) and Perlas Archipielago in Pacific waters of Panama ( Kritsky et al. 2009b).

Specimens deposited.

Twelve reference specimens (CNHE 10612).

Two slides, each containing a haptor of a specimen of Hal. striatohamus  used to amplify its DNA are deposited in the CNHE (10623).

Representative DNA sequence.
