Abstract

Two frequently reported but poorly known hemiurid digeneans, Lecithochirium musculus (Looss, 1907) (Lecithochiriinae), from the stomach of Trachinus draco and Citharus linguatula, and Ectenurus lepidus Looss, 1907 (Dinurinae), from the stomach of Spicara maena, are redescribed based on material from off the Barcelona coast of the western Mediterranean. The two species are commented upon, and Lecithochiriumisraelense Fischthal, 1980 is considered a synonym of L. musculus. Records of the two species in the Mediterranean Basin and North East Atlantic region are summarised. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
