Checklist of helminth parasites of freshwater fishes from Mexico
The data demonstrate that the helminth fauna of freshwater fish in Mexico is divided into Neotropical and Nearctic components with no apparent transition zone between them. Expand
Trematodes of the family Heterophyidae (Digenea) in Mexico: a review of species and new host and geographical records
Metacercariae of heterophyid trematodes are among the most frequent and abundant parasites offish in Mexico, in particular in its southeastern part. Expand
The Introduction and Dispersal of Centrocestus formosanus (Nishigori, 1924) (Digenea: Heterophyidae) in Mexico: A Review
Better understanding of all aspects of the life cycle, transmission, host-parasite relationships and the effective control of C. formosanus in Mexico is necessary and adequate preventive and control measures should be applied in aquaculture. Expand
Helminth parasites in freshwater fish from the Papaloapan river basin, Mexico
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. Expand
Parsimony Analysis of Endemicity (PAE) of Mexican hydrological basins based on helminth parasites of freshwater fishes
The cladogram suggests that the treatment of the Lerma-Santiago basin as a single biogeographical unit is inaccurate and that they should be treated as separate systems, providing support for a Mesoamerican province based on helminth parasites of cichlids. Expand
Richness and similarity of helminth communities in the tropical cichlid fish Cichlasoma urophthalmus from the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
The composition, richness and similarity of helminth communities in a tropical freshwater fish were determined in samples of Cichlasoma urophthalmus collected from 7 localities of broadly similar ageExpand
Thubunaea ctenosauri sp. n. (Nematoda: Physalopteridae) from the iguanid lizard Ctenosaura pectinata and other lizard helminths from Mexico
Thubunaea ctenosauri sp. n. is described from the large intestine of the iguanid lizard Ctenosaura pectinata from Aguamilpa, Mexican State of Nayarit. It is characterized mainly by the position ofExpand
Helminth Parasites of Freshwater Fishes of the Pánuco River Basin, East Central Mexico
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. Expand
Cestodes of the family Dilepididae (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea) from fish-eating birds in Mexico: a survey of species
Dendrouteria herodiae is reported from America for the first time and data on the morphology of the rostellar hooks of all species, their hosts and distribution in Mexico are provided. Expand
