Piscicola fasciata Kollar, 1842


Piscicola fasciata Kollar, 1842 

Synonym: Cystobranchus fasciatus Brumpt, 1900 Habitats  and status: Piscicola fasciata  is a rare ectoparasitic species living most often on the catfish ( Silurus glanis Linnaeus, 1758  ) ( Neubert & Nesemann 1999). In the Czech Republic it was reported only once from the lower Dyje (Thaya) River ( Lucký & Dyk 1964). During their survey, P. fasciata  was found frequently on catfish in spring period. This species is hence supposed to live in the Czech Republic, although by the sampling method used it was not collected recently (1998 through 2008).
