Abstract

Two new species, Acanthobothrium chengi and Rhinebothirum hawaiiensis (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea), are described from the stingray, Dasyatis lata. Distinguishing characteristics of 24 definitive, and six tentative species of Rhinebothrium are reviewed and tabulated. This represents the first report of marine cestodes from Hawaii and one of the few recorded species of Rhinebothrium from beyond the Eastern Pacific.
