Abstract

A new species of monogenoid, Lamellodiscus donatellae n. sp., from twobar seabream, Acanthopagrus bifasciatus, of the Gulf of Sinai, Egypt, is described and compared with other congeneric species. Lamellodiscus donatellae n. sp. is included in the L. ergensi group, but it presents differences with each species of this group, including size and morphology of the sclerotized structures. Two known species were found and redescribed: Polylabris acanthopagri Mamaev and Parukhin, 1976, and Placodiscus acanthopagri Paperna, 1972.
