The species of parasites and their hosts are: Caligus alaihi Lewis, 1968 in the gill cavities of the flat needlefish, Ablennes hians (Valenciennes in Cuvier & Valenciennes, 1846) and the blackblotch squirrelfish, Sargocentron melanospilos (Bleeker, 1858); Caligus cookeoli n. sp. on the body surface of the arrow bullseye, Priacanthus sagittarius Starnes, 1988 and the longfinned bullseye, Cookeolus japonicus (Cuvier in Cuvier & Valenciennes, 1829); and Lepeophtheirus formosanus n. sp. on the body surface of the ocean sunfish, Mola mola (Linnaeus, 1758).
