Supplementary observations

(measurements based on four specimens). Body 327 (200-380; 4) long; greatest width 76-80. Haptor 70 (65-75; 3) wide. MCO 19 (18-21; 4) long. Ventral anchor 39 (35-44; 8) long; dorsal anchor 55 (47-59; 8) long. Ventral bar 40 (33-54; 4) long; dorsal bar 37 (30-46; n = 4) long.

Comments.

This species was described from L. argentiventris  from the Perlas Archipielago, Panama by Kritsky and Mendoza-Franco (in Kritsky 2012). Euryhaliotrema fajeravilae  is distinguished from other species of the genus infecting lutjanids by having larger anchors and a noticeably smaller copulatory complex. The morphometrics of the present specimens did not differ from that of the original description.

Specimens deposited.
