Abstract

A new nematode species Dichelyne (Cucullanellus) mariajuliae n. sp., is described based on specimens collected from the black drum, Pogonias cromis (Linnaeus, 1766), from Mar Chiquita coastal lagoon, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina (37°32′S, 57°19′W) (prevalence 75%, mean intensity 3.75). Among Dichelyne (Cucullanellus), the new species is unique in having the papillae 2 situated at the level of ventral sucker in males and bearing subcuticular ornamentation in the female tail.
