Biology Sebastes, especially S. melanops, are preferred hosts. But leeches also occur on the skin and fins of cabezon, Scorpaenichthys marmoratus, and ling cod, Ophiodon elongatus. This species also occurs periodically in the Vancouver Public Aquarium, Vancouver, B. C., Canada, where it infests rockfishes, Sebastes spp., the sculpins Enophrys bison and Myoxocephalus polyacanthocephalus, Pacific halibut, Hippoglossus stenolepis, and ling cod.

Leeches resembling this species were also observed by the author on rockfishes in the Steinhart Aquarium, San Francisco, California, but none was collected. In nature it has been observed off the central Oregon coast on S. melanops, and specimens were collected from a cabezon in Puget Sound, Washington. Leeches of this species attach to fins or body, but have never been observed in the mouth or
gill cavity.  [details]
