Haematoloechus floedae Harwood, 1932

Site of infection: lungs.

Recruitment: ingestion.

Distribution: USA: Arizona ( Mayberry et al. 2000; Snyder & Tkach 2001); California ( León-Règagnon et al. 2005); Florida ( Manter 1938); Georgia ( León-Règagnon & Brooks 2003); Nebraska (HWML); Texas ( Harwood 1932; Jacobs & Morrison 1966);

Specimens in collections: CNHE: 4663, 4664; HWML: 1251, 21945. USNPC: 30879 (holotype), 84804, 91507 .

Remarks: Some authors consider H. floedae as junior synonym of H. breviplexus ( Odening 1960; Kennedy 1981); however, according to morphological and molecular data, H. floedae is a valid species (León- Règagnon & Brooks 2003). Voucher specimens from L. catesbeianus identified as H. breviplexus by Snyder and Tkach (2001), as well as specimens deposited at the USNPC (84804), were re-assigned to H. floedae ( León-Règagnon & Brooks 2003).
