Abstract / Introduction / Summary:
A female of Salmincola edwardsii (Olsson, 1869) (Copepoda: Lernaeopodidae) was collected from the left branchial chamber of a southern Asian Dolly Varden, Salvelinus malma krascheninnikova Taranetz, 1933 (Salmoniformes: Salmonidae), in the upper reaches of the Ikushina Stream, a tributary of the Shari River, eastern Hokkaido Island, Japan. This collection represents the second record for S. edwardsii from the Shari River, where the species was previously taken from a different tributary, the Satturu Stream. The female of S. edwardsii is briefly described. This paper also summarizes the host and distribution records of S. edwardsii in northern Japan, including Hokkaido Island and the southern Kuril Islands (Iturup and Kunashir islands).
