Asteriomyzostomum asteriae (Marenzeller, 1895) 

Myzostoma asteriae  Marenzeller, 1895

Notes

Originally described from Greece as parasitic on the starfish species Sclerasterias richardi  (Perrier in Milne-Edwards 1882) and Sclerasterias neglecta  (Perrier, 1891) collected near Santorini, Kythira and Samos; no other records from Greece. Almost nothing is known of the species' distribution; the extensive description of its anatomy by Stummer-Traunfels (1903) is based on specimens provided by Marenzeller, presumably from the same collection as the type material.
