Abstract

The new lepocreadiid species, Postlepidapedon quintum, is erected for worms recovered from the perciform fish Latridopsisftrsteri off the coast of northern Tasmania. It is distinguished from its congeners by the vitelline extent and the shape and thickness of the wall of the internal seminal vesicle. A key to the genus Postlepidapedon is given. P. quintum is likely to be endemic to southern Australia and New Zealand, as is its host.
