Abstract

Eiselt (1962) has recently advocated the abolition of the siphonostomatous fami- lies Dyspontiidae Sars, 1915, and Myzopontiidae Sars, 1915, and the merger of the genera which belonged to these families with the Artotrogidae Brady, 1880. As Eiselt pointed out the delimitations between these families are quite inadequate, and there is in fact some amount of gradation between the different genera which were split up into three separate families by Sars (1915). The family Artotrogidae as defined by Eiselt is relatively a coherent group and comprises fifteen genera. SewellopontiuJ n. gen. represents the sixteenth genus and is probably the third artotrogid genus to be recorded from Indian waters.
