Annotated checklist of fish cestodes from South America

Abstract: An exhaustive literature search supplemented by a critical examination of records made it possible to present an annotated checklist of tapeworms (Cestoda) that, as adults or larvae (metacestodes), parasitize freshwater, brackish water and marine fishes, i.e. cartilaginous and bony fishes, in South America. The current knowledge of their species diversity, host associations and geographical distribution is reviewed. Taxonomic problems are discussed based on a critical evaluation of the literature and informati… Show more

“…This inverse tendency between biodiversity and latitude seems to be balanced by a higher biomass and endemism at higher latitudes (Boltovskoy et al 2005). In the last years, some studies have been done in order to document these patterns in marine invertebrates from the South Western Atlantic (Astorga et al 2003, Bertness et al 2006, Diez 2006, López Gappa et al 2006, López Gappa and Sueiro 2006, Carranza et al 2009, Griffiths et al 2009, Scarabino et al 2016, Zelaya 2016, Alves et al 2017, among others). Also, some international initiatives as NaGISA (Census of Marine Life), or SARCE (South American Research Group on Coastal Ecosystems), contribute to the knowledge of the coastal marine biodiversity.…”

“…Catfishes represent c . 80% of the known hosts for proteocephalids in South America with certain species of large pimelodids harbouring up to nine species of cestodes in their intestines (Alves, de Chambrier, Luque, Scholz, 2017).…”

“…This invasive cestode is originally from Asia, and has been co–introduced worldwide, mainly with carp. In South America this parasite was recorded in 5 freshwater fish species from Brazil ( Alves et al, 2017 ). Asian carp have been reported in lakes from Buenos Aires Province since 1925 ( Rosso, 2006 ), but reached Patagonian environments only recently, about 25 years ago ( Peréz and López Cazorla, 2008 ).…”

“…The checklist follows the classification of Boeger and Kritsky (1993a , b) , Thatcher (2006) , and Cohen et al (2013) for monogeneans, Gibson et al (2002) , Jones et al (2005) , and Bray et al (2008) for digeneans, Khalil et al (1994) and Alves et al (2017) for cestodes, Moravec (1998) , Anderson et al (2009) , and Gibbons (2010) for nematodes, Amin (2013) for Acanthocephalans, and Froese and Pauly (2017) for fishes. River basins, followed by localities, are presented in latitudinal disposition between brackets, and in cases where localities belong to the same river basin, from upper to lower waters (see Supplementary data ).…”
