Some New Zealand Parasitic Copepoda of the Family Anthosomidae



Members of the family Anthosomidae include one widely distributed species (Anthosoma crassum) parasitic on sharks, and a large number of other species, mostly belonging to the genus Lernanthropus but also assigned to several other genera, which are found as parasites on teleosts and, in general, have a much more restricted distribution than Anthosoma crassum.

The collection described here contains six species belonging to the family.
