ABSTRACT The copepod Pectenophilus ornatus Nagasawa, Bresciani, and Lützen, a gill parasite of the Japanese scallop Patinopecten yessoensis (Jay), was found in coastal waters of southern Hokkaido and northern Honshu, but did not occur in other regions around Hokkaido. In a bay where the parasite was present, Japanese scallops from inner regions were more heavily infected than those from outer bay mouth areas. In the hanging (=floating) culture which employs lantern nets, the parasite was more abundant on Japanese scallops reared at the midlength and bottom of the nets than at the top. Prickly scallops, Chlamys farreri nypponensis Kuroda, were also infected with this parasite, but there was no infection of Swift's scallops, C. swiftii (Bernardi), and pen shells, Atrina pectinata (Linnaeus).
