Correction to: First description of Echinococcus ortleppi infection in China

Correction to: Parasites Vectors (2019) 12:398

Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported an error in Table 2.

Namely, in the ‘America’ section of the table the species ‘Crested Porcupine’ is matched with the country ‘Brazil’.

However, it should be matched with ‘Bosnia and Herzegovina’ (and so be placed in the ‘Europe’ section).

The corrected Table 2 is given in this erratum.

Table 2 Summary of animal infection of Echinococcus ortleppi
