The phylogenetic relationships and historical biogeography of species of Sciadicleithrum parasitizing Neotropical cichlid fishes were studied. Hypotheses were: Did the presence of Sciadicleithrum species in southeast Mexico (SM) and Central America (CA) result from early dispersal of cichlid species from South America (SA) to the north via the Antilles during the Tertiary (24 million years ago [mya]), or did it occur after emergence of the Panama Isthmus in the Pleistocene (2-5 mya)?
