A. rhomboidalis (new host)
(measurements based on three specimens). Ventral anchor 48 (46-49; 4) long; dorsal anchor 41 (48-54; 3) long. Haptor 60 wide. Ventral bar 32-34 long.
In A. rhomboidalis , a simultaneous infection with E. amydrum was found. Since all worms could not be identified, the data on infection rate relate to E. carbuncularium and E. amydrum . Euryhaliotrema carbuncularium was originally described on A. probatocephalus from the Indian River Lagoon near Malabar, Brevard County, Florida ( Kritsky and Bakenhaster 2011).
The present study also provided the ﬁrst molecular data of E. carbuncularium ; there are two sequences (676 and 856 bp, respectively) of individual specimens of this monogenean species included within the analyses that shows that this species forms a sister lineage to that containing Euryhaliotrema mehen ( Soler-Jiménez, García-Gasca & Fajer-Ávila, 2012) Kritsky, 2012, which is known on Lutjanus guttatus (Steindachner, 1869) in the Eastern Pacific (see Figure 1).
Three reference specimens in the CNHE (10608).
Two slides, each containing a haptor of a specimen of E. carbuncularium used to amplify its DNA are deposited in the CNHE (10622).
Representative DNA sequence.
