Abstract Mitotrema anthostomatum Manter, 1963 is redescribed from the serranid fishes Epinephelus fuscoguttatus and Cromileptes altivelis from the southern Great Barrier Reef, Australia. Distinctions of morphology and biology of these specimens in comparison with the original description are the presence of a uroproct and a distinctive lobe on the posterior margin of the ventral sucker. Metacercariae are recorded from the fish Amphiprion akindynos, A. perideraion, Chaetodon aureofasciatus, C. pelewensis, Choerodon cyanodus, Chromis viridis, Dascyllus aruanus, Forcipiger flavissimus, Plectroglyphidodon dickii, Pomacentrus flavicauda, P. melanochir; and P. wardi.
