Abstract

Individuals of 16 species of fishes representing the Centrarchidae, Ictaluridae, Catastomidae, Cyprinidae, Percidae, and Serranidae were collected at 8 localities in central and north-central Iowa, and examined for helminth parasites. Thirty-nine parasite species were recovered: 20 Monogenea, 8 Digenea, 3 Cestoda, 4 Acanthocephala, and 4 Nematoda. A new host record is reported for Gyrodactylus machrochiri from Lepomis humilis.
