Abstract:
This communication is the first report of
the nematode Eustrongylides ignotus from Panama. The
parasite was collected mainly from the lateral musculature
and intestinal mesenteries of peacock bass (cichlid)
Cichla ocellaris, caught by sport fishermen. The
nematode showed a preference for larger female fish.
