This volume deals with 584 species of parasitic monogenetic trematodes found on freshwater and migratory fishes in China. A detailed taxonomic description of the main characteristics is given for every one of the 584 species, which belong to 8 families and 37 genera, including a series of taxonomic keys to all taxa and notes on 42 new species. The geographical distribution of these species, subdivided into 5 regions and 12 subregions, and the formation of this fauna are discussed and analysed in a general description. A survey of research history, classification system, the morphology, biology, and ecology of Monogenea, as well as economic relevance are also included in the general description.
