Helminth parasites in freshwater fish from the Papaloapan river basin, Mexico
TLDR
This inventory shows the richness of helminth parasite species in the fish of the Papaloapan River basin in comparison with the other hydrological basins in Mexico and suggests highly effective transmission between environments within the same basin and that the regional parasite fauna is strongly influenced by fish community composition.
Helminth Parasites of Freshwater Fishes of the Pánuco River Basin, East Central Mexico
TLDR
The helminth parasite fauna of fishes of the Pánuco River basin are not exclusive, including a primordially autogenic Neotropical species component mixed with a mainly allogenic, globally distributed Nearctic species component.
A checklist of helminth parasites of freshwater fishes from the Lerma-Santiago River basin, Mexico
TLDR
A checklist based on previously published records and original data is presented for the helminth parasites reported from 33 freshwater fish species from the Lerma-Santiago river basin, west-central Mexico, and finds the Asian fish tapeworm Bothriocephalus acheilognathi is the most widely distributed species in the basin.
Helminth parasites of freshwater fishes of the Balsas River drainage basin of Southwestern Mexico
TLDR
The composition of the helminth fauna of the fishes of the Balsas River drainage is not very distinct from that of fishes from other previously studied freshwater basins in Mexico.
Helminth parasites of freshwater fish in Chiapas, Mexico
TLDR
An inventory based on previously published records and original data is presented for the helminth parasites reported in 54 fish species from 17 families from the state of Chiapas, southeast Mexico, showing that this fauna is quite similar to that from the neighboring basins of the lower Grijalva–Usumacinta system and the Yucatan Peninsula.
Helminth Parasites of Freshwater Fishes of the Ayuquila River, Sierra de Manantlán Biosphere Reserve, West Central Mexico
TLDR
The fish helminth fauna of the Ayuquila River is dominated by trematode and nematode species with only a few monogenean and acanthocephalan species.
Helminth parasites of some freshwater fishes from Baja California Sur, Mexico.
TLDR
Poeciliid fish are the most widely distributed in the oases and other waters of Baja California Sur, and their helminths are the least common on the peninsula, but most helminth species were larval forms of generalist Nearctic species transported by ichthyophagous birds.
Creptotrema agonostomi n. sp. (Trematoda: Allocreadiidae) from the intestine of freshwater fish of México.
Creptotrema agonostomi n. sp. is described from the mugilid fish Agonostomus monticola from Río Cuitzmala, Jalisco, east México, from Río Las Palmas and Río Máquinas, Veracruz, west México, and from
Helminth Parasites of Chapalichthys encaustus (Pisces: Goodeidae), an Endemic Freshwater Fish From Lake Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico
TLDR
Data suggest that host specificity is an important factor contributing to observed community composition and richness in helminthological examination of Chapalichthys encaustus from Lake Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico.
HELMINTH PARASITE COMMUNITIES OF CHARACODON AUDAX AND C. LATERALIS (PISCES: GOODEIDAE), ENDEMIC FRESHWATER FISHES FROM DURANGO, MEXICO
TLDR
The depauperate nature of the helminth communities of Goodeidae fish species in Nearctic Mexico is confirmed, and host feeding habits and local habitat characteristics are suggested as the main factors contributing to the variability observed in community composition and richness.
