Abstract

The gills of two species of Siluriformes, Heterobranchus longifilis and H. isopterus collected from the Rivers Agnéby and Bia in the Ivory Coast (West Africa) revealed the presence of seven new species of Quadriacanthus Paperna, 1961 (Monogenea: Ancyrocephalidae). The following parasites are described: Quadriacanthus longifilisi n. sp., Q. thysi n. sp., Q. ayameensis n. sp., Q. agnebiensis n. sp., Q. simplex n. sp., Q. gourenei n. sp. and Q. macrocirrus n. sp.
