UNSPECIFIED. (2000) The first record of the elasmobranch parasite Diphterostomum betencourti (Monticelli, 1893) (Digenea, Zoogonidae) in the coastal waters of southern England. ACTA PARASITOLOGICA, 45 (4). pp. 299-302. ISSN 1230-2821Full text not available from this repository.
Diphterostomum betencourti is reported from the catshark Scyliorhinus canicula from the Solent off the Isle of Wight in southern England. This is the first record of this parasite in British waters. The species is partly redescribed from unflattened and flattened material. These specimens clearly show a distinct uterine seminal receptacle, a most unusual feature for members of the family Zoogonidae.
