undecimalis specimens of the Monogenean group (Van Beneden, 1858) Monopisthocotylea. According to Rohde (1993), Monopisthocotylea is considered a subclass of the Monogenean group, capable of parasitizing the gills of teleost fish and infecting a variety of microenvironments.

The results obtained in this study could be explained based on the heterogeneity of the gill system, the ventilation of current flow, the model of gills colonization by the oncomiracidiums of the Monopisthocotylea. The low diversity values obtained within seasons indicate that this period is harmful for the parasites studied.
