Lernanthropus indefinitus n. sp. was found as a new parasite on Argyrosomus regius (Asso, 1801). The identity of L. indefinitus was determined on the basis of the morphological features of the female, such as the shape of the dorsal plate, shape and size of the fourth leg, length of the fifth leg, and shape and size of the parabasal flagellum. In addition, new data are reported for Lernanthropus kroyeri Van Beneden, 1851 on Dicentrarchus labrax (L., 1758), and some comments are added on the antennules and parabasal flagellum of L. kroyeri. The present paper raises the number of known species of Lernanthropidae in Turkish waters to seven.
