Abstract

The lernaeid genus Lernaeenicus is represented in the Indian region by L. polynemi .(Bassett-Smith, 1898), L.hemirhamphi Kirtisinghe (1932), L. seeri Kirtisinghe (1934), L. ramosus Kirtisinghe (1956), L. nemipteri Gnanamuthu (1953), L. stromatei Gnanamuthu (1953), L. sayori Yamaguti and L. alatus Rangnekar (1960). Rao (1951) recorded a species of Lernaeenicus without assigning a specific name. Wilson (1917) in the revision of the family Lernaeidae has recognised 12 valid species in this genus. However, this number has been doubled since, through the works of Leigh Sharpe (1927, 1934), Yamaguti (1939), Yamaguti & Utmomi (1953), Shiino (1958) and other authors already referred to above. Herein is described a new species L.anchoviellae and its post-larval forms.
