Zoology Publications from Victoria University of Wellington—Nos. 49 to 51



The family Endactylinidae has not previously been recorded from New Zealand. However the collections of parasitic copepods available to me contain several samples of Nemesis, a widely distributed genus of shark parasite, and two samples of Congericola. The latter genus has previously been recorded only from the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean, but, considering the wide distribution of the conger eels on which it is found, it is hardly surprising that its distribution should also be widespread.
