A list of the nominal species of the Dactylogyridae Bychowsky, 1933 (with the exception of Dactylogyrus Diesing, 1850) is presented. It consists of almost 100 specific names in 10 genera, with their hosts (to the generic level) and geographical region. A reference list to the authorities for the taxa is included.
