new host records of monacanthid fish for three kudoa spp. (k. septempunctata, k. thyrsites, and k. shiomitsui) prevalent in the olive flounder (paralichthys olivaceus), with the description of k. parathyrsites n. sp. from a black scraper (thamnaconus modestus).kudoa septempunctata (myxosporean: multivalvulida) is known as a cause of foodborne disease associated with consumption of raw flesh of the olive flounder (paralichthys olivaceus). knowledge of its life cycle, particularly alternate annelid hosts and reservoirs or susceptible fish hosts in natural waters, may facilitate disease control in aquaculture farms. our recent survey of myxosporean infection in monacanthid fish in natural waters around japan revealed infection with three kudoid species p ...201627026502
