Abstract: Dendromonocotyle pipinna n. sp. (Monogenea: Monocotylidae) is described from the dorsal skin surface of Taeniura meyeni Müller & Henle from a public aquarium in Mooloolaba, Queensland, Australia. D. torosa n. sp. was found on the dorsal skin surface of a heavily infected specimen of Aetobatus narinari (Euphrasen) during a post-mortem at the Mooloolaba aquarium and on a specimen of A. narinari kept in an aquarium in Cairns. Both of these new Dendromonocotyle species are distinguished from each other and others in the genus by the morphology of the terminal papillary sclerite and the male copulatory organ.
