abstract

  • Karyakartia egyptensis n. sp. (Digenea: Lepocreadiidae: Lepocreadiinae) is described from the intestine of the Jarbua terapon, Terapon jarbua (Forssk√•l), collected from the Red Sea off the coast of Hurghada, Egypt. Karyakartia egyptensis n. sp. differs from K. pambanense in that the former species possesses larger spiniform structures around the perimeter of the mouth (48-54 microm as compared with 25-30 microm), a uroproct rather than ceca that end blindly or form a cyclocoel, and a somewhat smaller egg (60-68 microm as compared with 70-73 microm).
