(Taeniacanthidae) is described based on specimens of both sexes recovered from the body surface and the bucco-branchial cavity of the beach conger, Conger japonicus Bleeker, 1879 (Congridae) in Japan. C. japonicus represents a new host for the family. Copepodids V-III of the species are also described.
