Entobdella soleae is a monogenean flatworm and an ectoparasite of the common sole (Solae solae). As such, its range is limited to geographic areas inhabited by the common sole, mostly in the eastern Atlantic Ocean from Norway to Senegal and in the Mediterranean Sea. The common sole is frequently harvested for food in Europe, and a large number of parasitic infections by E. soleae have been reported in captivity.
