Approximately 1 400 marine fishes collected in and around Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors were examined for parasitic helminths between May 1979-March 1992. Ten families of helminth parasites were collected from 18 species of southern California marine fish that represent new host-parasite records. A new species is described, Choanodera moseri sp. n., as well as a rediscription of Proctoeces magnorus Manter, 1940.
