Lasiotocus lizae sp. n. (Digenea: Monorchiidae) was collected from the intestine of Liz carinata (Valenciennes) (Mugilidae, Perciformes) in the Taiwan Straits, China. L. lizae is most similar to Lasiotocus glebulentus Overstreet, 1971 from the intestine of Mugil cephalus from the Northern Gulf of Mexico in having tightly compacted vitellaria, a genital pore sinistral to the midline, the ovary usually dextral to the acetabulum, the similar sucker ratio, and in the presence of both a canalicular and uterine seminal receptacle. It differs from L. glebulentus in its cirrus sac ending anterior to rather than posterior to acetabulum, in the ending position of caeca, in smaller eggs, and in having a single rather than several conspicuous concretions in excretory vesicle.
