Type host.

Archosargus probatocephalus 

Present study.

A. rhomboidalis  (new host)

Supplementary observations

(measurements based on seven specimens). Body 285 (200-360; 7) long; greatest width 63 (60-73; 3). MCO 17 (14-21; 7) long; proximal ring of the MCO 9 (8-10; 4) diameter. Haptor 54 (45-60; 4) wide. Ventral anchor 30 (29-31; 7) long; dorsal anchor 41 (37-47; 6) long. Hook pair 1, 14 (3) long.


A simultaneous infection with E. amydrum  and E. carbuncularium  occurred on A. rhomboidalis  . Since all worms could not be identified, the data on infection rate relate to E. dunlapae  , E. amydrum  , and E. carbuncularium  . Euryhaliotrema dunlapae  was originally described on A. probatocephalus  from the Indian River Lagoon near Malabar, Brevard County, Florida ( Kritsky and Bakenhaster 2011). Morphometrical comparison between present specimens and those originally described did not reveal a significant difference. As mentioned above for E. amydrum  , Montoya-Mendoza et al. (2015) also reported E. dunlapae  on A. probatocephalus  in Veracruz, Mexico; however, they did not provide any accession number for these specimens of E. dunlapae  .

Specimens deposited.

Seven reference specimens in the CNHE (10609).
