Abstract

During a study on some Barbus species (Pisces: Cyprinidae) of the Mesopotamian fauna region (the south-western part of Iran) a new nematode species, Philometra karunensis sp. n., was found in the swimbladder (under the serosa cover) and abdominal cavity of Barbus sharpeyi (Günther). Males distinctly differ from the known species in the length of the spicules and gubernaculum, while subgravid females are very similar to those of Philometra spp. known from the abdominal cavity of cyprinid fishes.
