Abstract

A morphological study on the ectoparasite Lernaea cyprinacea, found on Labeo rosae and Oreochromis mossambicus in the Olifants River in the Kruger National Park, South Africa, was done with the use of Scanning Electron Microscopy. Detailed descriptions are given of the appendages and their associated ornamentation. Significant morphological findings include the exact structure of the mandibles and the ornamentation on first pair of maxillae. Statistical analysis of the morphometrical data as well as the geographical distribution in Africa are shown. /// Une étude morphologique de l'ectoparasite Lernaea cyprinacea, trouvé sur Labeo rosae et Oreochromis mossambicus dans la rivière Olifants, Parc National Kruger, Afrique du Sud, a été effectuée en microscopie électronique à balayage. Les appendices sont étudiés en détail, avec leur ornementation associée. Les constatations morphologiques significatives se rapportent à la structure exacte des mandibules et à l'ornementation de la première paire de maxilles. Des analyses statistiques des données morphométriques sont présentées, ainsi que la distribution géographique en Afrique.
