Abstract

Thirty-three juveniles of the piscicolid leech Stibarobdella macrothela were found infecting a round ribbontail ray, Taeniura meyeni, from Micronesia. Taeniura meyeni is a new host for S. macrothela. The findings of the present study constitute the first record of S. macrothela from Micronesia.
