Population Structure and Reproduction of Pseudione elongata africana (Bopyridae, Isopoda)




The population structure and reproductive fitness of Pseudione elongata africana parasitizing the shrimp Palaemon concinnus were studied in two mangroves in Mozambique. About 100 host specimens were sampled every 15 days for 12 months at Costa do Sol, a peri-urban mangrove near Maputo, and at Saco, a near pristine mangrove at Inhaca Island. Parasites were removed from the branchiostegites of the shrimp and measured. Ovigerous females were selected and the eggs and embryos removed from the brood pouch and counted after staging their level of development.
