Abstract

A compendium of the genus Acanthobothrium is presented, including figures from the literature. The present analysis yields 44 valid species. These are: aetiobatis, australis, batailloni, benedeni, bengalense, brachyacanthum, brevissime, cestracii, coronatum, crassicolle, dasybati, dujardini, floridensis, fogeli, gracile, heterodonti, hispidum, holorhini, ijimae, indicum, intermedium, latum, lilium, maculatum, magnum, mathiasi, micracantha, microcephalum, parviuncinatum, pearsoni, rajaebatis, rhinobati, rhynchobatidis, robustum, semnovesiculum, septentrionale, southwelli, tortum, triacis, urogymni, unilateralis, wedli, woodsholei, and zschokkei. All but five of these species are redescribed from the literature, and their hosts and localities indicated. A key to the valid species is presented. The arrangement of the genus is based in part on host and locality data, herein considered useful taxonomic characters.
