Abstract: In this paper a newly recorded species belonging to Monogenoidea in Oncorhynchus mykiss from the Qinling Mountain is described, namely Gyrodactylus brachymystacis Ergens, 1978. In addition, the diagnoses of G. lenoki Gussev, 1953 and G. brachymystacis are given as well. How and when this particular stock of fish first acquired the parasite? One likely possibility is established that they originated from wild fish in the Qinling watershed via the intake water supply, indeed, locals report that the Manchurian trout, Brachymystax lenok (Pallas), the only known natural host of G. brachymystacis, is present, albeit rare, in the river and thus a potential source of the infection. The another possibility is that they originated from other plase introduced into Qinling Mountain region via the delivered to the facility as fertilized eggs which fetched in early years.
