Formatted abstract
Adlardia novaecaledoniae n. g., n. sp.
(Digenea: Cryptogonimidae) is described from the
fish Nemipterus furcosus (Val.) (Perciformes:
Nemipteridae) from off New Caledonia (South
Pacific). Adlardia n. g. is distinguished from all
other cryptogonimid genera by the combination of an
elongate body, the presence of oral spines, intestinal
caeca that open via ani at the posterior end of the
body, a highly lobed ovary, oblique testes that are
located in the mid-hindbody, vitelline follicles that
extend from midway between the testes and ovary to
midway between the ovary and ventral sucker, and an
excretory vesicle that bifurcates dorsal to the ovary
and reunites immediately anterior to the pharynx.
A. novaecaledoniae n. sp. is the only cryptogonimid
that has been reported with an excretory vesicle that
reunites anterior to the pharynx. Siphoderina elongata
(Gu & Shen, 1979) Miller & Cribb, 2008 is
transferred to Adlardia as A. elongata (Gu & Shen,
1979) n. comb. based on morphological and ecological
(host group) agreement with A. novaecaledoniae.
Bayesian inference analysis of LSU rDNA revealed
that A. novaecaledoniae nested well within a clade
containing cryptogonimid taxa known almost exclusively
from haemulid and lutjanid fishes, suggesting
that host-switching between teleosts of the Haemuloidea,
Lutjanoidea and Sparoidea may have been
common in the evolutionary history of this system.
