Abstract This study presents results from the first survey of the helminth parasites of fishes in the Ayuquila River, Sierra de Manantlán Biosphere Reserve, in the states of Jalisco and Colima, west central Mexico. Twenty-eight helminth species were collected from 14 freshwater fish species in July 2000 and February 2001. No helminth species collected is exclusive to the Ayuquila River: 11 are allogenic species, mostly Nearctic in origin, and 17 are autogenics. Three introduced species were… 
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.
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 fish from Central America
TLDR
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.
Checklist of helminth parasites of freshwater fishes from Mexico
TLDR
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.
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.
Adult Endohelminth Parasites of Goodeinae (Cyprinodontiformes: Goodeidae) from México with Biogeographical Considerations
TLDR
Rhabdochona lichtenfelsi was the most prevalent and abundant helminth in collections from the freshwater basins of Lerma-Santiago and Pánuco river systems, indicating it has multiple host and biogeographical origins within the Americas.
HELMINTH PARASITES OF THE TROPICAL GAR, ATRACTOSTEUS TROPICUS GILL, FROM TABASCO, MEXICO
TLDR
The recording of 3 specialist species in the tropical gar confirms that the helminth fauna of gar has an appreciable degree of specificity and indicates the importance of ecological determinants of richness in helminths communities of the tropicalGar.
Helminth Parasites of the Balsas Catfish Ictalurus balsanus (Siluriformes: Ictaluridae) in Several Localities of the Balsas River Drainage, Mexico: Species Composition and Biogeographical Affinities
TLDR
The helminth fauna of this catfish is presented through a survey along its distributional range in the Balsas River basin to address some biogeographical aspects, particularly the concept of core parasite faunas and parasite faunaal exchange in a transitional area.
Checklist of helminth parasites of Goodeinae (Osteichthyes: Cyprinodontiformes: Goodeidae), an endemic subfamily of freshwater fishes from Mexico.
TLDR
It is posed that goodeines, a subfamily of viviparous freshwater fishes endemic to central Mexico, might be regarded as the first group of wildlife vertebrate for which a complete inventory of their helminth parasite fauna has been completed.
Parasite Inventories and DNA-based Taxonomy: Lessons from Helminths of Freshwater Fishes in a Megadiverse Country
TLDR
It is suggested that future survey work aimed at enhancing the biodiversity inventory should be strategic, i.e., it should combine the need to target missing components of the host spectrum with the choice of appropriate drainages based on biogeographic, faunistic, and hydrologic data.

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.
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.
Nematodes parasitic in fishes of cenotes (= sinkholes) of the Peninsula of Yucatan, Mexico. Part 2. Larvae.
TLDR
A systematic survey of larval nematodes collected from fishes from cenotes (= sinkholes) of the Peninsula of Yucatan, southern Mexico, in 1993-1994, finding that fishes harbouring the larvae of these parasites serve as paratenic hosts, being mostly an important source of infection for the definitive hosts.
The Asian Fish Tapeworm Bothriocephalus acheilognathi: a Potential Threat to Native Freshwater Fish Species in Mexico
TLDR
Given its wide distribution among Mexican freshwater fish species, the abundance of the parasite and its high pathogenicity, parasitological data for B. acheilognathi should be considered as an important factor in native fish conservation policies.
The Introduction and Dispersal of Centrocestus formosanus (Nishigori, 1924) (Digenea: Heterophyidae) in Mexico: A Review
TLDR
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.
Some adult endohelminths parasitizing freshwater fishes from the Atlantic drainages of Nicaragua
TLDR
The majority of species have previously been found in freshwater fishes from southeastern Mexico, which indicates a close similarity of the helminth faunas of both regions, in accordance with previous data on the larval stages of endohelminths and gill monogeneans.
Margotrema guillerminae n. sp. (Trematoda: Macroderoididae) from two species of freshwater fishes in Lake Zacapu, Michoacan State, Mexico, and new records of Margotrema bravoae Lamothe, 1970.
TLDR
The new species is easily distinguished from the only other species of the genus, M. bravoae, by having short ceca, extending posteriad to reach the region of the anterior testis, vitelline follicles that are mainly lateral to the ceca but with some intercecal (particularly at the ovarian region), and a seminal receptacle that is located immediately posterior to the ovary.
Nematodes parasitic in fishes of cenotes (= sinkholes) of the Peninsula of Yucatan, Mexico. Part 1. Adults.
TLDR
The nematode fauna of fishes in cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula shows its appurtenance to the Neotropical fauna with close affinities with that of fish nematodes from South America, but with a considerable degree of endemism.
Decline of Freshwater Fishes and Fisheries in Selected Drainages of West‐Central Mexico
Abstract The unique freshwater fishes and fisheries of west-central Mexico are sharply declining because of environmental degradation. In the Lerma River basin, half of the localities that once
Cenotes (sinkholes) of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, as a habitat of adult trematodes of fish.
TLDR
Examination of a total of 581 fish specimens of 15 species from 39 cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula, southeastern Mexico, revealed the presence of 10 species of adult trematodes, including Saccocoelioides sogandaresi, reported from Mexico for the first time.
