Abstract

A few digenean species recorded from marine fishes of Indian waters belonged to families that contain mainly representatives from freshwater fishes. Most of the reports of these digeneans were based on single specimens and hence may represent accidental infections. Altogether nine species of digeneans in four families belong to this category: Cladorchiidae (3 spp), Microscaphiididae (1 sp) Cephalogonimidae (4 spp), Opisthorchiidae (1 sp).
