Samples were collected from the freshwater fishes (between Oct. 2007 to Sep. 2008) and 109 specimen of Capoeta damascina were examined. The fishes were collected from 4 stations, identified under species and examined for parasitic infections. According to the results, seven different Myxobolus spp. were detected as follows: Myxobolus samgoricus, M. cristatus, M. varicorhin, M. musajevi, M. karelicus, M. buckei and M. suturalis. While the first ordered 4 out of 7 parrasites had been already reported from different parts of Iran, M. karelicus, M. buckei and M. suturalis are reported for the first time. During this research Capoeata damascina was introduced as a new host for M. musajevi, M. karelicus, M. buckei and M. suturalis.
