Abstract

1. Ectoparasitic trematodes representing the two families, Tristomidae Taschenberg (1879) and Udonellidae Van Beneden and Hesse (1863), taken from the sting ray, Myliobatus californicus, are reported. 2. Epibdella pacifica, sp. nov. is described. These were taken from the buccal cavity of the sting ray. 3. A worm belonging to the family Udonellidae is recorded. It is described and is provisionally designated as Calinella myliobati, sp. nov. It is parasitic on the copepod, Trebius caudatus, which inhabits the body surfaces of Myliobatus californicus.
