Abstract

Pseudodactylogyrus anguillae is a monogenean parasite of anguillid eels that is thought to have Pacific origins. Recent identification of Pseudodactylogyrus in Europe and America has been attributed to human-mediated introductions. Here we report the first confirmed incidence of P. anguillae in South Africa and discuss whether it is a natural parasite of South African eels or an introduced exotic.
