abstract
A specimen of the piscicolid leech Limnotrachelobdella okae (Moore, 1924) was collected from the labium of a Japanese eel, Anguilla japonica Temminck & Schlegel, 1847, in brackish waters of the lower Katsura River, Oita Prefecture, Kyushu, western Japan. This represents a new host record for L. okae and the third record of the species in Kyushu. Hemorrhage was observed at the attachment and feeding sites of the leech.
