FERNANDES, Berenice M. M.  and  GOULART, Miriam B.. Dinosoma clupeola sp. n. (Hemiuridae) and Pseudoacanthostomum floridensis Nahhas & Short, 1965 (Acanthostomidae), digenetic trematodes in Brazilian Marine fishes. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 1989, vol.84, n.1, pp. 103-106. ISSN 1678-8060.

Dinosoma clupeola sp. n. is described from Harengula clupeola, and resembles D. hawaiiense Yamaguti, 1970, from which it differs in the entire, elongate-saccular seminal vesicle, tegument weakly plicated, smaller size of body and internal organs, and slightly larger and narrower eggs. Pseudoacanthostomum floridensis Nahhas & Short, 1965 is referred to Netuma barba, which represents a new host record.

Keywords : Dinosoma clupeola sp. n.; Pseudoacanthostomum floridensis; trematodes; marine fishes; Brazil.
