Table 1 Species of Gyrodactylus von Nordmann, 1832 recorded from Mexican freshwater fishes

From: To each his own: no evidence of gyrodactylid parasite host switches from invasive poeciliid fishes to Goodea atripinnis Jordan (Cyprinodontiformes: Goodeidae), the most dominant endemic freshwater goodeid fish in the Mexican Highlands

  5. dThis species was identified by Salgado-Maldonado et al. [50] and Sánchez-Nava et al. [51] as Gyrodactylus cf. elegans von Nordmann, 1832; however, re-examination of the samples suggests that this material represents a further two undescribed species (data not shown, pers. obs.)
