Golden Topminnow, Fundulus chrysotus, Helminths, Arkansas, Digenea, Trematoda, Nematoda
During July 2019, 21 Golden Topminnows (Fundulus chrysotus) were collected from an oxbow lake in McGehee, Desha County, Arkansas, and examined for parasites. Found were 4 taxa of endoparasites, including 3 digeneans (Clinostomum marginatum, Homalometron sp., and Posthodiplostomum minimum) and a nematode (Spiroxys contortus). We document a new host record for S. contortus and the first report of parasites in F. chrysotus from the lower Mississippi River Drainage.
