Formatted abstract
Two species of Coitocaecum Nicoll, 1915,C. gymnophallum Nicoll, 1915 and C. michaeli n. sp., are recorded, described and figured from the intestine of Acanthopagrus australis from Moreton Bay, off south east Queensland. The holotype of C. gymnophallum Nicoll, 1915 is examined, measured and figured for comparison. C. glandulosum Yamaguti, 1934 andC. robustum Wang, 1984 are reduced to synonymy with C. gymnophallum. The host specificity of Coitocaecum spp. is discussed.
