Transversotrema  sp. C

Transversotrematids similar to T. licinum  have been found from Chaetodon lineolatus  , C. lunula  , C. semeion  and C. ulietensis  from Palau. Sequences obtained from two individual C lunulatus  were most similar to T. borboleta  n. sp. from Lizard Island. Morphological examination shows that they are similar to T. borboleta  n. sp. G 1 which is found from chaetodontids and lutjanids. Overall the molecular and morphological samples of this species are insufficient to allow it to be described.
