Myself and my co-authors are pleased to announce a new publication arising
from our research on stranded Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins in Hong Kong.

Crassicauda sp. in an Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin (Sousa chinensis).
Veterinary Record Case Reports 8: e000865. doi: 10.1136/vetreccr-2019-000865
A female Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin (Sousa chinensis) stranded in Hong
Kong waters presented on postmortem examination with a single nematode with
a diameter of 0.1 cm in the mammary gland, as well as mild multifocal
chronic mastitis on histological examination. The parasitic material was
recognised as a species of Crassicauda. To our knowledge, this is the first
record of a species of Crassicauda occurring in an Indo-Pacific humpback
dolphin and also represents a new geographical record for this genus in the
South China Sea.
Wishing you all a Healthy New Year 2021!
