Sabelliphilid Copepods (Poecilostomatoida) Associated with Cnidarians in the Philippines
Abstract:Four sabelliphilid copepods are reported from cnidarians at Bohol Island in the Philippines. Forhania philippinensis new genus, new species, from the gorgonaceans Acabaria rubeola and Suberogorgia reticulata, has unusual sexual dimorphism in the first and second maxillae and a 2-segmented endopod in leg 4. Thamnomolgus nodulus new species, from the antipatharian Antipathes sp., has a conspicuous knob on the second segment of the male maxilliped and the endopod of leg 1 in the male is not sexually dimorphic. Thamnomolgus robustus Humes, 1969, is recorded from Antipathes sp. Camotesia bullifera new genus, new species, occurs on Antipathes sp., and is characterized by a 3-segmented endopod in leg 4 where the third segment is small, spherical, and unarmed.
