Three myxosporidian (Myxozoa, Myxosporea) parasites, Myxobolus diagrammae n. sp. from the Kidney of Parapristipoma (Diagramma) octolineatum and Plectorhynchus (Diagramma) mediterraneus, Thelohannus arii n. sp. from the gall Bladder of Arius heudeloti and Myxidium chilomycteri n. sp. from the gall bladder of Chilomycterus spinosus mauretanicus are described. The host fishes were collected from the coast of Senegal, West Africa. The spores of M. diagrammae measured 11.230.85 m x 6.730.78 m and their polar capsules were 4.100.65 x 2.60.70 m. The dimensions of spores of T. arii were 12.570.5 m x 6.640.7 m; polar capsules 6.90.12 x 2.570.17 m. Spores of M. chilomycteri measured 11.530.68 m x 7.270.58 m and their polar capsules were 4.100.54 m x 3.170.37 m.

Keywords: Myxosporea, parasites, myxobolus, myxidium, thelohanellus.
