Checklist of Monogenea parasites of freshwater and marine fishes, amphibians and reptiles from Mexico, Central America and Caribbean

  title={Checklist of Monogenea parasites of freshwater and marine fishes, amphibians and reptiles from Mexico, Central America and Caribbean},
  author={Anna Kohn and S. C. Cohen and Guillermo Salgado-Maldonado},
Two hundred and ten species from Mexico, 155 from the Caribbean (Bahamas, Bermuda, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Trinidad) and 63 from Central America (Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Panama) with hosts and geographical distribution are listed in this contribution, bringing up to date the knowledge of Latin America monogenean fauna. A host parasite list with the monogenean species is presented.

Results relating to Monogenea and Digenea are presented and the monogeneans Metamicrocotyla macracantha, Microcotyle pomatomi and Gotocotyla acanthura are reported in new hosts.

Diversity of parasitic helminths of marine and freshwater fish from Turkey

Comparisons were done among phlums Plathyhelminthes (Monogenea, Digenea, Cestoda), Nemat Helminthes, Acanthocephala, Annelida (Hirudinea) according to years to draw attention to the diversity and change of parasite number from marine and freshwater fish in Turkey.

Helminth parasites of freshwater fish from Central America

The data suggest that helminth parasites of freshwater fish from Central America constitute a recent fauna derived mainly from South America but not found there.

Monogeneans of Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Dactylogyridae), gill parasites of tilapias, from Okinawa Prefecture, Japan

Three species of the monogenean genus Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960, are reported for the first time from Japan based on specimens from the gills of tilapias (Nile tilapia Oreochromisniloticus niloticus and Mozambiquetilapia O. mossambicus) in Okinawa Prefecture.

Parasites of freshwater fishes and the Great American Biotic Interchange: a bridge too far?

The review shows that ‘interchange’ is limited and asymmetrical, but simple narratives of northward isthmian dispersal will likely prove inadequate to explain the historical biogeography of many host–parasite associations in tropical Middle America, particularly those involving poeciliids.

Checklist of the monogenea (Platyhelminthes) parasitic in mexican aquatic vertebrates

Despite the inventory of the monogenean fauna occurring in Mexican vertebrates is far from complete, the data contained in the checklist depict the actual knowledge about this group of flatworms in Mexico.

Communities of Helminth Parasites in Sciaenid Fish From the Alvarado Coast, Veracruz, Mexico, Southern Gulf of Mexico

Helminths with the highest prevalence in all five communities were Pseudorhamnocercoides stichospinus and Tetraphyllidae, and Hysterothylacium sp.

Revision of Parasitic Helminths Reported in Freshwater Fish From Turkey with New Records

This new checklist is an update of helminths of freshwater fish from Turkey and includes additional records and allows for the correction of errors and omissions that were present in the preceding version.

The influence of host ecology and biogeography on the helminth species richness of freshwater fishes in Mexico

The distribution range was the most important richness predictor (widespread fishes harbour richer parasite assemblages), although interactions between this variable and others such as trophic level, latitude, habitat temperature and precipitation are also important.

New species of Diplectanum (Monogenoidea:Diplectanidae), and proposal of a new genus of the Dactylogyridae from the gills of gerreid fishes (Teleostei) from Mexico and Panama.

Analysis of morphological features of Diplectanum species on gerreids evidences that these parasites more closely resemble each other than the known species from sciaenids suggesting that split between gerreid fishes and scioenids resulted in parasite speciation.



A checklist of helminth parasites of freshwater fishes from the Lerma-Santiago River basin, Mexico

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 Ayuquila River, Sierra de Manantlán Biosphere Reserve, West Central Mexico

The fish helminth fauna of the Ayuquila River is dominated by trematode and nematode species with only a few monogenean and acanthocephalan species.

Salsuginus neotropicalis n. sp. (Monogenea: Ancyrocephalinae) from the pike killifish Belonesox belizanus (Atheriniformes: Poeciliidae) from southeastern Mexico

This is the first known Salsuginus species occurring in a freshwater fish from the Neotropical Region, and is described from the gills of Belonesox belizanus, the pike killifish from the southeastern Mexico.

Monogeneans (Dactylogyridae: Ancyrocephalinae) of Freshwater Fishes from the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua

The results of a systematic survey of species of monogeneans collected from the gills of pimelodid, poeciliid, cichlid, and characid fishes from the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua in 1999 are presented.

Helminth parasites of garter snakes and mud turtles from several localities of the Mesa Central of Mexico

Between 1996 and 1998, 212 specimens of aquatic snakes, the Mexican garter snake Thamnophis eques (77) and the black-bellied garter snake Thamnophis melanogaster (135), and 71 Mexican mud turtles
