Abstract

Rhabdochona guerreroensis n. sp. is described on the basis of specimens recovered from the intestine of Sicydium multipunctatum (Regan) (Gobiidae, Perciformes) from 2 localities in Mexico. This species is characterized by 12 teeth in the prostom (occasionally 11), asymmetrical numbers of postanal papillae, a broad distal tip of the larger (left) spicule with a small bifurcation covered by narrow cuticular membrane, a smaller (right) spicule with a dorsal barb on its distal tip, and filamented eggs.
