Comments.

Haliotrema longihamus  Zhukov, 1976 was transferred to Haliotrematoides  by Kritsky et al. (2009) based on the original figures of the anchor/bar complex and MCO of this species [see Zhukov (1976: fig. 2) and Bosques Rodríguez (2004: fig. 30)]. Haliotrematoides longihamus  is characterized by having a longer and convoluted shaft of its MCO and inner blades on the distal portions of the ventral, and dorsal anchor shafts. Currently, H. longihamus  has been reported on L. synagris  , L. mahogoni  , L. analis  , and L. griseus  from Bay of Campeche (Area Havana) and Puerto Rico ( Zhukov 1976, Bosques Rodríguez 2004, Kritsky et al. 2009). Recently, Montoya-Mendoza et al. (2016) reported E. longihamus  (voucher CNHE 10219), from L. synagris  from Santiaguillo Reef, Veracruz (Gulf of Mexico). Examination of that voucher allowed us to confirm the species identity.

Specimens deposited.

Ten reference specimens in the CNHE (10599).
