Bodianus is a genus of wrasses found in the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans.[2]


The 44 currently recognized species in this genus are:


Huffmanela ossicola[4] is a nematode parasite found in the bones of the golden-spot hogfish (B. perditio), the blackfin hogfish (B. loxozonus), and B. busellatus in the waters of New Caledonia.
Haliotrema banana[5] is a monogenean parasite found on the gills of the golden-spot hogfish.
Intusatrium robustum[6] is a lepocreadiid digenean found in the intestine of its type-host, the golden-spot hogfish and the blackfin hogfish.
