Abstract

Four species of Dactylogyrus were found on gills of goldfish (Carassius auratus) in Cuba. The collected monogeneans were fixed in ammonium picrate and glycerin solution and mounted in glycerin gelatin. The species were identified based on morphological characteristics and measurements, and the 4 dactylogyrids were identified as D. dulkeiti Bychowsky, 1936; D. baueri Gussev, 1955; D. formosus Kulwiec, 1927; and D. intermedius Weger, 1910, which are new records from goldfish in Cuba.
