Lal Mohan, R S (1971) On the infestation of the gonadial nematode parasite Philometra rajani Mukerjee from the sciaenid fish Pennahia aneus (Bloch) from Palk Bay. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 12 (1&2). pp. 226-227.
Philometra rajani the gonadial nematode parasite was first described by Mukerjee (1966) from the ovaries of fishes Polynemus polydactylus and Sciaena coiter, but unfortunately the places from where these fishes were obtained are not given by the author. Annigiri (1961) recorded Philometra sp. from Otolithus argenteus and from his account it appears to be the same species described by Mukerjee. From Japan, Yamaguti (1961) recorded philometrids from the sciaenid fish Sciaena schegeli.
