Abstract

Redescriptions are given of E. caballeroi Velasquez, E. caranxi Lebedev and E, chironemi Robinson, described originally from small numbers of specimens. Each species is recorded from a new host and geographic locality. The unusual beating body movement of E. caballeroi is discussed in relation to its site of attachment between the pads of pharyngeal teeth of its host.
