Twelve parasitic copepod species representing two families were opportunistically recorded from the skin of 13 elasmobranch species captured in the coastal waters of Oman. New host records include Alebion carchariae, Pandarus smithii and Pandarus cranchii on Carcharhinus amboinensis; Echthrogaleus denticulatus on Alopias superciliosus and Sphyrna lewini; Pandarus carcharhini on Carcharhinus altimus; Pseudopandarus longus on Carcharhinus sorrah; Caligus dasyaticus on Glaucostegas halavi. Previous records of Pseudopandarus australis are limited to the Pacific Ocean, and its occurrence in the northern Indian Ocean represents a large range extension.
