Bothriocephalus acheilognathi (Figure 1) was first described by Yamaguti (1934) from cyprinids in Japan 142.
In total, the following 13 metazoan parasite species were found: 2 monogenea (Gyrodactylus proterorhini and Gyrodactylus sp.) 6 digenean metacercariae (Tylodelphys clavata, Diplostomum spathaceum, Apatemon gracilis, Posthodiplostomum sp., Ascocotyle sp., and Echinostoma sp.), 1 cestoda (Bothriocephalus acheilognathi), 3 nematodes (Spiroxys contortus, Eustrongylides excisus, and Contraceacum rudolphii), and 1 arthropoda Ergasilus (sieboldi).
Temperature and other factors that regulate the composition and intrapopulation densities of Bothriocephalus acheilognathi (Cestoda) in Gambusia affinis (Pisces).
Four species of Monogenea (701 Dactylogyrus goktschaicus, 2 Dactylogyrus lankorani, 27 Dogielius mokhayeri and 40 Gyrodactylus sp.), one species of Digenea (72 Allocreadium isoporum), two species of Cestoda (5 Bothriocephalus acheilognathi, 3 Caryophylleous laticeps), two species of Nematoda (46 Rhabdochona denudata, 7 Contracaecum sp.) and two species of Copepoda (121 Lemproglena pulchella and 98 Eergasilus sieboldi) observed respectively.
Abstract.--In September 2007 and May 2014, the Asian fish tapeworm, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi Yamaguti,1934 (Cestoda: Bothriocephalidea), was found in populations of the non-native convict cichlid (Archocentrus nigrofasciatus) and mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) collected from the discharge channel of a water treatment plant in Los Angeles County.
Bluegill (n = 222) were infected with 11 species, which included five species of larval helminths (Proteocephalus sp., Bothriocephalus sp., Posthodiplostomum minimum, Diplostomulum sp.
The exotic and highly pathogenic tapeworm Bothriocephalus acheilognathi has been collected from the intestine of G.
Similar results were described in Cyprinus carpio, infected with Bothriocephalus acheilognathi [30], whereas no difference in hematocrit was seen in rainbow trout infested with Lepeophtheirus.

Humpback chub (Gila cypha) Surveys by the NWHC, in collaboration with the Arizona Game and Fish Department and the USGS Grand Canyon Monitoring Center, have revealed the presence of the Asian fish tapeworm (Bothriocephalus acheilognathi) in the Little Colorado River, the primary remaining spawning area of the endangered humpback chub.
