Argulus, one of the four genera of class Branchiura (Poly, 2008; Martin and Davis, 2001) has a world wide distibution.
The major crustaceans parasites commonly encountered in cultured and wild fish are: copepods (ergasilidea and lernaeidae), branchiura (argulidae) and isopods).

Of these six species belong to the Tubificidae: Tubifex tubifex (Muller, 1774), Limnodrilus hoffmeisteri (Claparede, 1862), Limnodrilus claparedeianus (Ratzel, 1868), Potamothrix hammoniensis (Michaelsen, 1901), Potamothrix bedoti (Piguet, 1913), and Branchiura sowerbyi (Beddard, 1892); five species to the Naididae: Nais pardalis (Piguet, 1906), Ophidonais serpentina (Muller, 1774), Dero digitata (Muller, 1773), Slavina appendiculata (d'Udekem, 1855), and Stylaria lacustris (Linnaeus, 1767); and the genus Mesenchytraeus to Enchytraeidae.
