This is the first record of a monogenean
parasitizing the gills of these hosts.
It is well known that reproductive cycles of the Opalinid ciliates and the monogenean
Polystoma integerrimum are directly under the influence of the host gonadotropic hormones (Smyth & Smyth 1980).

In this paper, this new monogenean
is described and compared with closely related species in this genus.
Therefore, prevalence and abundance values were not calculated for individual monogenean
genera from each host species.
