|Description||Eudiplozoon nipponicum (Goto, 1891) (Monogenea, Diplozoidae) is a parasite of the gills of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) which originated from Far East and was later introduced into Europe. A long term study of ontogenetic development, reproductive biology and microhabitat ecology of E. nipponicum has been performed under the conditions of an experimental pond system.|
