    Renocila colini sp. n. is described from the flamefish, Apogon maculatus (Poey), and the belted cardinal fish, Apogon townsendi (Breder), from Mona Island, Puerto Rico; R. waldneri sp. n. from the harlequin bass, Serranus tigrinus (Bloch), from La Caleta, near Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; R. bowmani sp. n. from the harlequin bass from Saona Island, Dominican Republic; and R. thresherorum sp. n. from Apogon retrosella (Gill) from Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Limited data suggests that members of this genus possess extremely restricted geographic ranges, high rates of infestation, and a high degree of host specificity. Oostegites of Renocila colini , and possibly other species in the genus, are formed during a single molt.
