Capsalidae

The Capsalidae[1][2] is a family of monopisthocotylean monogeneans, which includes about 200 species.[3]

The monophyly of the Capsalidae is supported by possession of accessory sclerites[3] in the haptor (the posterior attachment organ), and was confirmed by molecular phylogeny.[4]

Capsalids are parasite on various organs of marine fish (teleosts and elasmobranchs), including skin, fins and gills.[3] Several capsalid species, such a Neobenedenia spp.[5] are pathogenic, especially on maricultured fish.

Included Genera[edit]

Genera as recognized in WorMs are listed below. Recent molecular analyses have shown that several genera, which were defined on morphological characters, are not monophyletic.[4]

Menziesia and Nitzschia have their equivalent in the botanical nomenclature: Menziesia (a flowering plant) and Nitzschia (a diatom).
