Empruthotrema dasyatidis n. sp. (Monogenea: Monocotylidae) from the olfactory sacs of Dasyatis fluviorum (Rajiformes: Dasyatidae) from Moreton Bay, Queensland
The monocotylid monogenean Empruthotrema dasyatidis n. sp. is reported from the olfactory sacs of the brown stingray, Dasyatis fluviorum Ogilby, 1908, from Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia. This is the first record of Empruthotrema from the family Dasyatidae. E. dasyatidis n. sp. differs from other species of Empruthotrema by possessing eye pigment, which may be scattered, and by its small size. The generic diagnosis for Empruthotrema is amended.
