Abstract
    A specimen of Albionella kabatai found on the cat shark Apristurus profundorum collected on the continental shelf in the Northwest Atlantic is decribed in detail. The specimen constitutes a new host and geographical record. Comparison is made between A. kabatai from the Northwest Atlantic and the only other known specimen of this species collected from the spatulasnout cat shark Apristurus platyrhynchus in the Sea of Kumano, off Japan. Aspects of the biogeography, and host specificity of Albionella are discussed.
