parasites on Lembeh fish

Recommended Posts

On a recent trip to Lembeh, I photographed this Shorthead Fangblenny, Petroscirtes breviceps, living in a bottle.

Looking at the photo later, I see some banded worms on the fish. Two large ones on the belly, and smaller ones on top of the head and on the chin. Any idea what they are?

Looks to me like marine Leeches, Piscicolidae.

 

Cheers,

Jim.
