Abstract

The parasitic isopod Cinusa tetrodontis Schioedte and Meinert, 1884, is the only species in Cinusa and has one known host, the evil-eye puffer fish, Amblyrhynchotes honckenii. The original Latin description contained many generic or family traits and thus the genus and species are redescribed. A complete revision of the genus was carried out, detailed illustrations of C. tetrodontis are provided and a lectotype designated and deposited in the Zoological Museum, University of Copenhagen.
