Abstract

The prevalence and abundance of Paracatidinicola platei an ecto-commensal on the atyid shrimp Caridina fernandoi was studied in two distinct sites in the Kandy Lake over a period of one year. Infection was influenced by environmental factors like rainfall, and host factors such as size and sex. Female shrimps were mom susceptible to infection than males, while non-ovigerous females showed a higher percentage of infection with the ccto-commensal.
