Two new nematodes, Paraseuratoides ophisterni gen. et sp. n. (Seuratoidea: Quimperiidae) and Philometra ophisterni sp. n. (Dracunculoidea: Philometridae) are described based on specimens recovered from the intestine and mesentery, respectively, of the swamp-eel Ophisternon aenigmaticum Rosen et Greenwood (Synbranchiformes: Synbranchidae) from a canal of the Papaloapan River in Tlacotalpan, State of Veracruz, Mexico. The genus Paraseuratoides is mot similar to Paraseuratum Johnston et Mawson…

A New Philometrid Species (Nematoda) from the Freshwater Fish Cichlasoma istlanum (Jordan and Snyder, 1899) (Cichlidae) in Mexico

Abstract A new nematode species, Philometra poblana n. sp., is described based on specimens recovered from skin at the base of the pectoral fins of the cichlid Cichlasoma istlanum (Jordan and Snyder,

Occurrence of a nematode Philometra (Costa,1845) in the ovaries of Epinephelus malabaricus (Bloch & Schneider, 1801) in southeast coast of India

It can be assumed that females of this nematode are unable to attain gravidity in this host species, and consequently, E. malabaricus does not serve as the true definitive host of Philometra spp.

External morphological differences between Crepidostomum farionis and Crepidostomum metoecus (Trematoda: Allocreadiidae), parasites of salmonids, as revealed by SEM.

Scanning electron microscopy examinations of trematode specimens belonging to Crepidostomum farionis and C. metoecus made it possible to study their surface morphology including details not described previously, finding marked differences in the size, shape and position of the oral muscular lobes.

Helminth parasites in freshwater fish from the Papaloapan river basin, Mexico

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.
