Argulus americanus, A. flavescens, A. lepidostei, and A. japonicus are reported from Illinois for the first time. Gizzard shad (Dorosoma cepedianum) is a new host record for A. japonicus, bigmouth buffalo (Ictiobus cyprinellus) is a new host record for A. catostomi, and black crappie (Pomoxis nigromaculatus) is a new host record for A. stizostethii. Eight species, A. americanus, A. appendiculosus, A. catostomi, A. flavescens, A. japonicus, A. lepidostei, A. mississippiensis, and A. stizostethii, have been recorded from 13 Illinois fish species. Ciliated protozoans (Epistylis or Opercularia) were observed on four Argulus spp., and crustacean shell disease was observed on five species.
