Gastrocotylinae is a sub-family of polyopisthocotylean monogeneans. All the species in this family are parasitic on fish.[1][2]

Genera[edit]

According to the Lebedev (1986) [3] the sub-family includes 17 valid genera:

  • Allogastrocotyle Nasir & Fuentes Zambrano, 1984 [4]
  • Amphipolycotyle Hargis, 1957 [2]
  • Areotestis Yamaguti, 1965 [5]
  • Churavera Unnithan, 1968 [6]
  • Cypselurobranchitrema Yamaguti, 1966[7]
  • Engraulicola George, 1960 [8]
  • Engrauliphila Unnithan, 1967 [9]
  • Engrauliscobina Unnithan, 1967 [9]
  • Engraulixenus Unnithan, 1967 [9]
  • Eyelavera Unnithan, 1968 [6]
  • Gastrocotyle Beneden & Hesse, 1863 [10]
  • Irinaxine Ghichenok, 1980 [11]
  • Pellonicola Unnithan, 1967 [9]
  • Pseudaxine Parona & Perugia, 1890 [12]
  • Pseudaxinoides Lebedev, 1968 [13]
  • Quadrivalvula Ghichenok, 1980 [11]
