Abstract

Anantrum histocephalum sp. n. is described from Synodus lucioceps, California lizardfish. The larger worm size, mushroom-shaped scolex, vitelline follicle distribution, and larger eggs distinguish this species from A. tortum. The tapeworm was observed in 8.5% of 164 lizardfish from the coastal waters of Los Angeles County.
