Abstract:
This study investigated the presence of lernaeopodid and parasitic annelids on Capoeta umbla from Murat River. The host fish was found to be infested with the ectoparasite Tracheliastes polycolpus (Copepoda: Lernaeopodidae) and Piscicola geometra (Hirudinida: Pontobdellinae). Parasites were isolated from the fins of C. umbla that the most common fish species of Murat River. The present report constitutes the first diagnosis of T. polycolpus in Turkey and P. geometra known from different freshwater sources in Turkey. The morphological structure of two parasites were measured and photographed.
