Abstract

A new host record for Pseudocapillaria (Pseudocapillaria) tomentosa (Dujardin, 1843) Moravec, 1987 from the intestine of red shiner, Cyprinella lutrensis, imported from a commercial facility in Missouri to a research facility in Wisconsin is described. Prevalence of infection was 85%. Intensity of infection was 1–26 worms per host. Supplementary information involving sequence data (18S ribosomal RNA gene) and new details of the male spicule are provided. The issue of parasite dispersal through the baitfish trade is briefly discussed.
