Brown paper covers have the author's name and date written in ink on the top left corner of the front covers and the previous owner's name and "00231" stamped on the upper right had cover of the cover. Covers have a few nicks and light creasing along edges and light overall aging, scuffing and soling as well. Spine creased but binding is still solid. First few pages have some chipping and tearing along the fore-edge of the pages from some sticky substance that glued the pages along the fore-edge, but this does not affect the text in any way. Otherwise pages are lightly aged but clean and unmarked. NOT Ex-Library. B&w illustrations. [Excerpt from Introduction] During the summers of 1930, 1931, and 1932, extensive collections of parasites of fishes were made at the Biological Laboratory of the Carnegie Institution of Washington at Dry Tortugas, Florida. Dr. W. H. Longley was at that time engaged in his studies of the fishes of that region, and a very considerable number and variety of fishes were made available to me for examination.Altogether, some 2039 fishes representing some 237 species of teleost fishes were examined. Several short papers (Manter, 1930; 1931; 193 la; 1932; 1933; 1933a; 1935; 1937; 1940; 1942; 1945; 1946) and one longer paper dealing with trematodes from deepwater fishes (Manter, 1934) have been published.The present paper includes all the species of digenetic trematodes which could be identified with reasonable certainty, altogether some 189 species.Species reported previously are listed with the others partly to provide as complete a list as possible and partly to make a few corrections particularly in names of hosts.Union (1910) reported on trematodes of the Tortugas region, and a few specles were studied by Pratt (1916) and McCoy (1929, l930). All the species reported by them are represented in my collections with the exception of a single species, Hysterolecitha rose Linton, 1910. Not included in this report are immature specimens; a few adults, of which a single specimen was obtained; and a number of Didymozoonidae preserved material of which seemed inadequate for satisfactory identification.
