Abstract Seven species of Pseudopecoeloides Yamaguti, 1940, including five new are described from marine fishes in the waters off the coasts of Queensland and both Western and South Australia. The new species are Pseudopecoeloides hickmani sp. n. from Pseudocaranx wrighti, Pseudopecoeloides lesteri sp. n. from Pseudocaranx dentex and Pseudocaranx wrighti, Pseudopecoeloides arripi sp. n. from Arripis georgianus, Pseudopecoeloides atherinomori sp. n. from Atherinonmorus ogilbyi and Pseudopecoeloides hafeezullahi sp. n. from Trachurus novaezealandiae. Pseudopecoeloides scomberi Hafeezullah, 1971, which was transferred to Opecoeloides Odhner, 1928 by Madhavi (1975), is reported from Scomberoides lysan and returned to Pseudopecoeloides. Pseudopecoeloides tenuis Yamaguti, 1940 is reported from a new host species, Priacanthus macracanthus. The Carangidae is the dominant host family for species of Pseudopecoeloides, followed by the Mullidae, Priacanthidae and Champsodontidae.
