During 1979 and 1980, gills of 147 catostomid fishes, representing 12 host species from 9 localities in Ohio, were examined for monogenetic trematodes. Thirty-one percent were infected by at least one trematode. Three new host records and 10 new Ohio records are reported. The new host records established are Neodiscocotyle carpioditis from Ictiobus bubalus, and Dactylogyrus hamatus and Pseudomurraytrema etowanum from Hypentelium nigricans. The new Ohio records are Pseudomurraytrema paradoxum, Dactylogyrus apos, and Dactylogyrus ursus from catostomids collected in the Grand River, Ashtabula-Lake Co. border; Pseudomurraytrema etowanum, Pseudomurraytrema rogersi and Dactylogyrus hamatus from Silver Creek, Geauga Co.; Dactylogyrus duquesnei and Anonchohaptor anomalum from Salt Creek, Pickaway Co; Neodiscocotyle carpioditis from Lake Erie, Lorain Co.; and Pseudomurraytrema alabarrum from Bridge Creek, Geauga Co. Specimens of most of the species collected were deposited in the U.S. National Museum.
