Morphology of Lernanthropinus trachuri (Brian, 1903)(Copepoda, Siphonostomatoida,... AbstractThe parasitic copepod, Lernanthropinus trachuri (Brian, 1903) (Copepoda, Siphonostomatoida, Lernanthropidae)was found on the Mediterranean horse mackerel, Trachurus mediterraneus in Bandırma Bay, Turkey. The aim of this study is to present female Lernanthropinus trachuri with morphological characters with photos from Turkey. The details unseen in photos were supported with drawings. All parasites were firmly attached to the gill filaments of the host. This parasite is also specific for the genus Trachurus (Costa et al 2017). Therefore, this parasite may use as biomonitor or tag species for fish stock studies in Turkey. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Transylvanian Review of Systematical and Ecological Research de Gruyter
