Female specimens of the copepod Mugilicola smithae were collected from a new locality in northern Kwazulu Natal from Liza alata, L. macrolepis, Myxis capensis and Valamugil seheli, all four species constituting new host records. Studies of whole mounts cleared in 90% lactic acid and of scanning electron microscopy were conducted. The morphological features of Mugilicola smithae are reviewed. The distribution of the genus Mugilicola and host preferences are discussed.
