Abstract

Gyrodactylus bullatarudis Turnbull, 1956, and Gyrodactylus turnbulli Harris, 1986, are recorded from guppies (Poecilia reticulata) from the northern mountains of Trinidad. Mixed infections of the 2 species were found at 9 localities. Gyrodactylus turnbulli had a predominantly posterior distribution on the fishes, whereas G. bullatarudis was more anteriorly distributed. This is the first record of these species from guppies collected from within their original range.
