Abstract: The parasitic copepod Bobkabata kabatabobbus Hogans & Benz is reported
for the first time from the Pacific Ocean and from the darkfin sculpin,
Malacocottus zonurus (Psychrolutidae: Scorpaeniformes). Based on five specimens,
several morphological features are reported for the first time for B. kabatabobbus,
including a second protuberance on the cephalothorax, a pair of vestigial
legs on the neck, and two dark-staining sclerites on the trunk that may represent
body segment boundaries or interpodal bars.
