Specimens of Huffmanela lusitana of the Collection of Pathology of IPMA

Latest version published by IPMA - Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera on Nov 14, 2016 IPMA - Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera

Specimens of Huffmanela lusitana sp n. are preserved, as laid eggs in epaxial and hypaxial muscles of pouting, Trisopterus luscus (L.), of the collection of Pathology of IPMA, either as frozen tissue or in neutral buffered formalin. Pouting was captured using bottom trawl and gillnets, at the North East Atlantic Coast, between Figueira da Foz and Cabo da Roca. Pathological findings, microscopic and ultrastructural characteristics, egg features, host-parasite interaction at muscle level and a new host on a new geographic area, all suggest that a new species is involved.

Sampling Methods

Infected pouting were captured using bottom trawl and gillnets. Morphological Huffmanela lusitana eggs were performed on wet-mounted slides without coverslip pressure. For Scanning electronic microscopy, eggs were rinsed by pipetting and and routinely processed. SEM photographs were taken with JEOL5200-LV electronic microscope.

Study Extent Northeast Atlantic coast of Portugal, between Figueira da Foz and Cabo da Roca (Portugal)

Method step description:

  1. Morphological Huffmanela lusitana eggs were performed on wet-mounted slides without coverslip pressure. For Scanning electronic microscopy, eggs were rinsed by pipetting and and routinely processed. SEM photographs were taken with JEOL5200-LV electronic microscope. Muscle samples of all specimens were collected and dehydrated in a graded series of ethanol and embedded in paraffin for histological procedures.
