Specimens of Huffmanela lusitana of the Collection of Pathology of IPMA
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.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 11 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

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.

Method step description:
- 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.
