Abstract

Three species of piscine parasitic copepods previously undescriptionbed from southern African coastal waters were studied. Although sampling data are incomplete, Lepeopthirius nordmanni (Edwards, 1840) taken from Thunnus and Mola spp., Euryphorus brachypterus (Gerstaecker, 1853) from unknown host and locality and Nesippus orientalis Heller, 1868 from Thunnus thynnus, the bluefin tuna, are descriptionbed and figured. Several morphological variations from other descriptionptions are noted for all three species.
