Abstract

Four new Myxobolus species are described from cyprinid fishes of the Mesopotamian Fauna Region in Iran. Each species infects a specific site of their fish hosts. Myxobolus iranicus sp. n. forms large plasmodia in the spleen of Barbus sharpeyi and B. luteus. The plasmodia of M. mesopotamiae sp. n. are located in the fins of B. grypus, B. luteus and B. rajanorum. The plasmodia of M. shadganisp. n. develop on the cartilageous rays of the gill filament in . rajanorum, while M. sharpeyi sp. n. forms plasmodia inside the cartilageous gill arches of B. sharpeyi.
