The aims of this study were to produce a checklist of the metazoan parasites of fishes from the Celestun coastal lagoon and to determine the degree of faunal similarity among the fishes based on the metazoan parasites they share. A checklist was prepared including all available records (1996-2014) of parasites of marine, brackish water and freshwater fishes of the area. All of these data were included in a presence/absence database and used to determine similarity via Jaccard's index. The… Expand
Parasitic Nematodes in Snappers (Perciformes: Lutjanidae) from the Southern Gulf of Mexico and Mexican Caribbean.
There is a potential risk to public health due to the presence of nematodes with zoonotic potential (as Anisakis sp.) and the habit in the region of eating raw fish (cebiche), thus increasing to 22 the nematode taxa in the SGM and CAR. Expand
Checklist of the monogenea (Platyhelminthes) parasitic in mexican aquatic vertebrates
ABSTRACT 313 nominal species of monogenean parasites of aquatic vertebrates occurring in Mexico are included in this checklist; in addition, records of 54 undetermined taxa are also listed. All theExpand
Following the infection dynamics of the tropical trematode Oligogonotylus mayae in its intermediate and definitive hosts for 13 years.
The results suggest that the transmission of O. mayae in all its hosts was influenced by the annual patterns of temperature, salinity and rainfall, and there was a biannual accumulation of metacercarial stages ofO. Expand
Molecular evidence linking the larval and adult stages of Mexiconema cichlasomae (Dracunculoidea: Daniconematidae) from Mexico, with notes on its phylogenetic position among Dracunculoidea
The morphological and molecular results support conspecificity between M. cichlasomae larvae in A. yucatanus and adult nematodes in C. urophthalmus and support the transfer of the Mexiconema genus to the family Skrjabillanidae and do not support the lowering of family Daniconematidae to subfamily.

A molecular phylogenetic appraisal of the acanthostomines Acanthostomum and Timoniella and their position within Cryptogonimidae (Trematoda: Opisthorchioidea)
The phylogenetic position of three taxa from two trematode genera, belonging to the subfamily Acanthostominae, were analysed using partial 28S ribosomal DNA and internal transcribed spacers and indicated the monophyly of the genus AcanthOSTomum and paraphyletic taxon, in contrast with previous classifications based on morphological data.

New morphological and molecular data for Xystretrum solidum (Gorgoderidae, Gorgoderinae) from Sphoeroides testudineus (Tetraodontiformes, Tetraodontidae) in Mexican waters
The first detailed morphological information for a member of Xystretrum is presented, and sequence fragments of the 28S ribosomal DNA and mitochondrial Cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (COI) gene are compared with those available for other gorgoderine taxa. Expand


Metazoan parasites of fishes from Coyuca Lagoon, Guerrero, Mexico
This is the first survey of parasites of fish from this location and all reported species are new geographical host records for Coyuca Lagoon, Guerrero, Mexico. Expand
Digenean metacercariae of fishes from the lagoon flats of Palmyra Atoll, Eastern Indo-Pacific
The large diversity and abundance of metacercariae reported in this study highlight the utility of including this group in future ecological research in the EIP marine ecoregion. Expand
Four-year monitoring of parasite communities in gobiid fishes of the south-western Baltic
The composition of parasite communities was predominantly determined by the ways of life of the host as well as of the parasite species, another important factor is the population density of intermediate hosts. Expand
Comparative studies on goby (Teleostei) parasite communities from the North and Baltic Sea
The greater parasite richness in the Baltic compared with that of Helgoland, may lie on better adaptations of genuine brackish components, lower defence mechanisms of hosts as a consequence of lower salinity, and greater variability in habitat choice. Expand
Helmintos intestinales de Lutjanus griseus (Peciformes: Lutjanidae) recolectados en tres ambientes de Yucatán (México), con una lista de sus parásitos en las regiones del golfo de México y el Caribe
A survey of intestinal helminth parasites of the gray snapper, Lutjanus griseus, collected at the estuarine coastal lagoon of Celestun and off the coast of the localities of Chelem and ProgresoExpand
Four-year monitoring of parasite communities in gobiid fishes of the south-western Baltic
The parasite infracommunity of five goby species from the south-western Baltic was investigated during spring, summer and autumn of the years 1997–2000; most intensity of infestation values peaked in summer and were lowest in autumn; only a few exceptions were found in spring or autumn. Expand
Taxonomy of the metazoan parasites of the snapper Pagrus auratus in New Zealand
The metazoan parasites of the snapper Pagrus auratus were surveyed from specimens collected in north‐eastern New Zealand, finding five species of endoparasites in the digestive tract and three in the gonad. Expand
Biology of Crassicutis cichlasomae, a parasite of cichlid fishes in Mexico and Central America.
Examination of fish from the swamp in Mitza and other localities in the Yucatan Peninsula showed that the cichlids Cichlasoma urophthalmus and C. meeki were definitive hosts of C. cichlasomae. Expand
The life cycle of Clinostomum complanatum Rudolphi, 1814 (Digenea, Clinostomidae) on the floodplain of the high Paraná river, Brazil
The floodplain of the high Paraná river has suitable conditions for the maintenance of the life cycle of C. complanatum, and the high prevalences in birds, especially in A. cocoi, suggest some kind of mechanism facilitating the predation of infected fish. 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
