Transversotrema  sp. A

Specimens of transversotrematids similar to T. licinum  were collected from two species of sillaginids: Sillago analis Whitley, Golden  –lined Sillago  , and Sillago ciliata Cuvier, Sand  Sillago  , from Moreton Bay. No specimens suitable for morphological examination were obtained, however, molecular analysis of the ITS 2 rDNA showed that they were significantly different from T. licinum  from Moreton Bay and different from all other species described in this study.
