Abstract: In early April 1961 while I was looking for
parasitic copepods in fish specimens preserved
in our specimen gallery, I discovered two different
kinds of parasite coexisting on a single
flat-fish, Pseudopleuronectis americanus Walbaum
(26.5 cm long). Some of them, 19 in number,
were found on the inner margin of the
operculum, and have been identified as the present
new species. The other 22 individuals, restricted
to the gill filaments, were identified as
belonging to the Lernaeopodidae. Because I do
not have complete references at hand, I shall
leave them to be studied later. It is interesting
to find two kinds of parasites belonging to two
different families on the same fish.
