Key-words: Chinese sleeper, parasites, Nippotaenia mogurndae, non-indigenous species, neobiota The parasites of the Asian invasive fish, Chinese sleeper Perccottus glenii, were studied in 6 localities in different parts of Ukraine. In total, 15 taxa of parasites were registered; among them were 1 species of Microsporidia, 5 species of ciliates, 2 species of cestodes, 2 species of trematodes, 2 species of nematodes, 1 species of acanthocephalan, 1 species of parasitic crustacean and 1 mollusk…

Role of the invasive Chinese sleeper Perccottus glenii (Actinopterygii: Odontobutidae) in the distribution of fish parasites in Europe: New data and a review

Analysis of the distribution routes of the invasive Chinese sleeper and its parasites supports the ‘enemy release hypothesis’, exemplified by low parasite load, in combination with host-parasite co-invasion.

Parasites of the invasive Chinese sleeper Percсottus glenii (Actinopterygii: Odontobutidae) in the region of the first introduction of the Carpathian population

The current data confirm the presence of co-introduced populations of G. perccotti and N. japonicus, which probably affects the future invasiveness of their host, but it cannot confirm any significant effect of invasive fish on local parasite assemblages in this region.

Parasite communities and infection levels of the invasive Chinese sleeper Perccottus glenii (Actinopterygii: Odontobutidae) from the Naab river basin, Germany

The results highlight the important role of the Chinese sleeper as a second intermediate host in the life cycle of heron and grebe parasites and supports the hypothesis of introduction via the aquarium trade or through transport with commercial fish.

New record of monogenean parasites on non-indigenous fishes in the Ukrainian Danube Delta

The data confirm the presence of the monogenean O. similis, a specific parasite of centrarchid fishes, in the Ukrainian part of the Danube.

The diversity of parasites in the Chinese sleeper Perccottus glenii Dybowski, 1877 (Actinopterygii: Perciformes) under the conditions of large-scale range expansion

It has been found that the species composition of parasites infesting the Chinese sleeper Perccottus glenii in water bodies from the nonnative part of its range is more depleted. Here, the

The Phylogenetic Position of the Cestode Nippotaenia mogurndae Yamaguti et Miyata, 1940 (Cestoda: Nippotaeniidae), a Parasite of the Chinese Sleeper Perccottus glenii Dybowski, 1877 (Actinopterygii: Odontobutidae), Based on a Partial Sequence of the 18S rRNA Gene

The results of the phylogenetic analysis do not support the separation of nippotaeniid cestodes into two genera: Amurotaenia Achmerow, 1941 and Nippotaenia Yamaguti, 1939.

Parasitofauna of allochthonous fish species in the open waters of the danube river basin (Serbian part) – impact on the native fish fauna

In this review data on parasitofauna of allochthonous fish species in the Danube River Basin in Serbia is presented and the large presence of alien fish species and its parasites creates a serious threat to the stability of freshwater ecosystems and the survival of the native ichthyofauna.

Parasitic infections of two invasive fish species, the Caucasian dwarf goby and the Amur sleeper, in Hungary.

All parasites found in dwarf goby belong to species commonly occurring also in native Hungarian fishes, but three species collected from the Amur sleeper are introduced species new for the Hungarian fauna.

Detection of a neglected introduction event of the invasive fish Perccottus glenii using parasitological analysis

Parasitological analysis was used to verify homogeneity-of-origin of P. glenii populations in the middle part of a large river basin where this invasive fish was documented as having an aquarium-release origin, supporting a non-aquarium introduction of the host.

Parasites of the introduced Chinese sleeper Perccottus glenii (Actinopterygii: Odontobutidae) at the northern border of the host habitat

The first data on the Chinese sleeper parasite fauna in this region are obtained; Trichodina mutabilis, Goussia sp.



Parasites of an Asian Fish, the Chinese Sleeper Perccottus glenii, in the Włocławek Reservoir on the Lower Vistula River, Poland: In Search of the Key Species in the Host Expansion Process

Investigation of the parasite fauna of the Chinese (Amur) sleeper Perccottus glenii Dybowski, 1877 in the Włocławek Reservoir on the lower Vistula River in Poland finds Poland is a new locality record for Diplostomum paracaudum (met.), Eustrongylides tubifex (larvae), and Holostephanus luehei (met.).

The colonization of the invasive round goby Neogobius melanostomus by parasites in new localities in the southwestern Baltic Sea

The round goby Neogobius melanostomus is a bottom-dwelling fish native for the Ponto-Caspian basin, which started to colonize the Baltic Sea since 1991, and the processes of colonization have the same tendency as in the Gulf of Gdańsk.

First record of Nippotaenia mogurndae Yamaguti and Miyata, 1940 (Cestoda, Nippotaeniidae), a parasite introduced with Chinese sleeper to Poland

This paper documented the first record of the parasite in Poland, an exotic cestode Nippotaenia mogurndae Yamaguti and Miyata, 1940, which spreads spontaneously with a host to European waters.

The host-specific parasite Nippotaenia mogurndae confirms introduction vectors of the fish Perccottus glenii in the Volga river basin

Two alternative hypotheses about aquarium vs fish-farm vectors of non-native distribution of the fish rotan, Perccottus glenii (Odontobutidae), within the Volga River Basin were assessed using a parasitological approach and it is confirmed that the specific parasite N. mogurndae is a valuable biological tag for analysing vectors and pathways of geographical dispersal of rotan.

Parasite communities of the Salzhaff (Northwest Mecklenburg, Baltic Sea) II. Guild communities, with special regard to snails, benthic crustaceans, and small-sized fish

The parasite fauna of the Salzhaff area is influenced by eutrophication stress, which leads to a high level of productivity and, consequently, to great densities in primary consumers such as snails and crustaceans.

Introduction of Gyrodactylus perccotti (Monogenea) into Europe on its invasive fish host, Amur sleeper (Perccottus glenii, Dybowski 1877)

Nucleic acid sequencing of the partial ITS rDNA confirmed that despite the variation in morphology or size of haptoral hard parts, all studied Gyrodactylus specimens belonged to the same species (G. percotti) and no intraspecific variation was detected.

Interactions of the introduced rotan Perccottus glenii Dybowski, 1877 (Osteichthyes, Odontobutidae) with aboriginal fish species: The parasitological aspect

Reliable evidence of the involvement of the rotan in the circulation of a parasite species native to the water body-recipient (Ergasilus sieboldi) was obtained for the first time.

The current range of Amur sleeper Perccottus glenii Dybowski, 1877 (Odontobutidae, Pisces) in Eurasia

The extent of its non-native range has been determined by analysis of literature, museum collections, specialist responses to a questionnaire and data of four expeditions to West and East Siberia, which yielded 876 records of Amur sleeper.

[Influence of introduced fish Percottus glenii (Odontobutidae, Pisces)].

Monitoring of 28 waterbodies has been carried out since 1994 in the region of reserve "Lake Glubokoe" (Moscow region, Russia). It was revealed that species diversity as well as abundance of larval
