Parasitic copepods reported from Mexico
Most reports (97%) are from marine or brackishhabitats infecting fish hosts (71% of all reports), which shows that knowledge about the biodiversity of parasitic copepods in Mexico is in its infancy. Expand
A new bomolochid copepod parasitic on bullseye puffer Sphoeroides annulatus (Jenyns) from Mexico, with reassignment of some species of Acantholochus Cressey and Hamaticolax Ho & Lin
It is suggested that species of the genus Acantholochus can only be distinguished from those of the genera Hamaticolax by the absence of the accessory process of the maxillipedal claw. Expand
Diversity of sea lice (Copepoda: Caligidae) parasitic on marine fishes with commercial and aquaculture importance in Chamela Bay, Pacific coast of Mexico by using morphology and DNA barcoding, with
The molecular analyses support the recognition of the new species and suggest that neither Caligus nor Lepeophtheirus are monophyletic, although a more robust reference database is needed to expand the ability to accomplish a molecular identification. Expand
New records of parasitic copepods (Copepoda: Pandaridae, Eudactylinidae, Caligidae) on elasmobranchs (Chondrichthyes) in the Gulf of Mexico
The aim of this study was to identify the parasitic copepod species in some elasmobranchs (two rays and four shark species) that are commercially important in the Southern Gulf of Mexico (Mexico). InExpand
In vitro efficacy of two terpenes against ancyrocephalid monogeneans from Nile tilapia
Evaluated the in vitro efficacy of two terpenes against ancyrocephalid monogeneans found on farmed Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) and (+)-Limonene oxide was more effective in killing these parasites than α-terpinene, but additional studies are needed to find a more effective concentration.

Efficacy of praziquantel and a combination anthelmintic (Adecto®) in bath treatments against Tagia ecuadori and Neobenedenia melleni (Monogenea), parasites of bullseye puffer fish
The efficacy of praziquantel (PZQ) and a combination anthelmintic commercialized under the name of Adecto (Adler Pharma) were evaluated in vitro against adults and eggs of the diclidophorid Tagia ecuadori and the capsalid Neobenedenia melleni, finding neither PZQ nor AdECTo® were effective at inhibiting egg hatching.

Acusicola margulisae n. sp. (Copepoda: Ergasilidae) from freshwater fishes in a Nicaraguan crater lake based on morphological and molecular evidence
The analyses indicate that phylogenetic relationships are not yet well resolved and more representative species and genera of the family are required to provide a robust classification of this highly diverse group of copepods. Expand
Sea lice (Copepoda: Caligidae) parasitic on fishes reported from the Neotropical region
A list of sea lice species known from the Neotropical region based on information from published records found 115 species of Caligus and 22 of Lepeophtheirus, suggesting that the inventory of this group of parasites is far from complete. Expand
Seasonality of Parasitic Copepods on Bullseye Puffer, Sphoeroides annulatus (Pisces: Tetraodontidae), From the Northwestern Coast of Mexico
Seasonal occurrence of parasitic copepods in wild bullseye puffer, Sphoeroides annulatus (Pisces: Tetraodontidae), was analyzed in conjunction with variation of biotic and abiotic factors and a significant positive association was detected between number of individuals and water temperature and between host size and both species richness and number of individual.
