Environment marine, brackish, fresh, terrestrial
Fossil range recent only
Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Parabrisinga is differentiated from Hymenodiscus solely on the basis of the gonad morphology which may have been mistaken for the pyloric caeca and misinterpreted by Hayashi as serial rather than paired. That, in addition to the small size of the material described and the similarity of other morphological characters suggests that this is almost certainly a synonyn of Hymenodiscus. A search with Japanese colleagues was unsuccessful in locating the holotype which is presumed to have been lost or destroyed. [details]
