Abstract

The adult female of Ergasilus briani Markewitsch, 1933 (Crustacea: Copepoda) is redescribed using scanning electron and light microscopy. The taxonomic history of E. briani is reviewed. It is confirmed that E. briani and E. minor Halisch, 1934 are synonymous. The known distribution of E. briani in Britain is noted.
