Abstract Cardicola forsteri sp. nov. (Digenea: Sanguinicolidae) is described from the heart of captive southern blue-fin tuna, Thunnus maccoyii (Scombridae), from South Australia. The new species is distinguished from other species of Cardicola by its very extensive testis, the length of its oesophagus, the length of its gut caeca and the form of its ovary. Cardicola smithi appears to be associated with heart and gill lesions(1).
