Superfamily ASCARIDOIDEA  Railliet & Henry, 1915

“Morphospecies”, “cryptic species” and “sibling species” occur amongst marine ascaridoids that represent the Family Anisakidae  (see also Pérez-Ponce de León & Nadler 2010). The larvae of some anisakids (species of Anisakis  and Pseudoterranova  in particular) have considerable public health and economic significance ( J. W. Smith & Wootten 1978; Bowen 1990; Desportes & McClelland 2001).
