status

 

Halipegus eccentricus Thomas, 1944

Site of infection: Eustachian tubes.

Recruitment: ingestion.

Distribution: USA: Michigan ( Thomas 1939; Muzzall 2005, in tadpoles); Nebraska ( Brooks et al. 2006a).

Specimens in collections: USNPC: 9203 (holotype and paratypes) .

Remarks: This species was described by Thomas (1939) based on immature specimens parasitizing L. catesbeianus, but the material was deposited in USNPC as parasite of L. clamitans. McAlpine and Burt (1998b) considered this species a junior synonym of H occidualis, but Zelmer and Esch (1999) and McAlpine (2006) rejected this suggestion.
