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.
The communities of helminth parasites of Heterandria bimaculata (Teleostei: Poeciliidae) from the upper Río La Antigua basin, east-central Mexico show a predictable structure
TLDR
It is speculated that the processes shaping the development of these component communities include stable, predictable habitats through time, allowing for a slow gradual dispersion process limited by host and parasite species capabilities.
Observations on cucullanid nematodes from freshwater fishes in Mexico, including Dichelyne mexicanus sp. n.
A new cucullanid nematode, Dichelyne mexicanus sp. n., is described from the intestine of three species of fishes, Agonostomus monticola (Bancroft) (Mugilidae, Perciformes) (type host), Ictalurus
Paracreptotrema profundulusi n. sp. and P. blancoi Choudhury, Pérez-Ponce De León, Brooks, and Daverdin, 2006 (Trematoda: Allocreadiidae) from Freshwater Fishes of the Genus Profundulus (Teleostei:
TLDR
Data is provided that shows the broad distribution of Paracreptotrema profundulusi in several river basins of Neotropical southern México, including the Papagayo River basin, Guerrero, MéxICO, and the Atoyac-Verde and Tehuantepec river bashes, and other rivers in Oaxaca, MéXico.
Redescription of Spinitectus tabascoensis (Nematoda: Cystidicolidae) from fishes of the Lacandon rain forest in Chiapas, southern Mexico, with remarks on Spinitectus macrospinosus and S. osorioi.
TLDR
Detailed light and electron microscopical studies of S. tabascoensis revealed some taxonomically important, previously not observed features, such as cuticular spines arranged in four sectors, the cephalic structure, the number of ventral precloacal ridges or the structure of the male caudal end, which are redescribed.
