[Paramonostomum antarcticum (Trematoda, Notocotylidae) in Larus dominicanus from South Shetlands (Antarctica)].

[Article in German]


Paramonostomum antarcticum Graefe, 1968 from the rectum of blackbacked gull from King George as Island (South Shetlands, Antarctica) is described. As a result of that Larus dominicanus is presented the new host of this trematode. The morphology is compared with the original description of P. signiense Jones & Williams, 1969. The relations between the two possibly identical Antarctic species are discussed. It is proposed to invalidate the subgenus Paramonostomoides Yamaguti, 1971.
