Abstract
    A survey of the dragonet Callionymus lyra and the reticulated dragonet C. reticulatus from Belgian coastal waters (Southern Bight of the North Sea) in June 1991 revealed 34% of dragonets infected with 1-7 Lernaeocera lusci. This same parasite infected 9% of the reticulated dragonets (mean intensity = 1). Parasite size is host-size-dependent. Of the parasites collected from C. lyra 64% were gravid adults (substage X), and a significant positive relationship between the number of eggs and axial length of the parasite was found. The parasites were overdispersed within the dragonet population (s²/m=1.67).
