Abstract

Trichodinids are parasites generally found on gills and skin of a broad number of aquatic animals. Only a small number of endozoic species has been reported from the urinary tract, intestine and urogenital system in some fish, amphibians and molluscs. This is the first report on the presence of endozoic trichodinids in the spleen, kidney and liver of shorthorn sculpin (Myoxocephalus scorpius). In the present study, trichodinids displayed some of the typical morphological characteristics of endozoic trichodinids with narrow blades and straight rays of adhesive disc denticles. The parasites were observed at a relatively high prevalence (23.9%). There was a positive correlation between intensity of endozoic trichodinids in the internal organs and ectozoic trichodinids on the gills (R = 0.5, n = 46, P
