Proctocaecum nuevoleonensis (Caballero & Caballero)  

Testudines   (A): Intestine.

NUEVO LEÓN: Arroyo Ayancual, Río Salinas: Apalone spinifera ( Iruegas-Buentello et al., 1991)   ; Río Pesquería: Apalone spinifera   ( Caballero & Caballero-Rodríguez, 1964; Iruegas-Buentello et al., 1991).

Specimens deposited: CNHE (1122) (P).

Notes: Species originally described as Acanthostomum nuevoleonensis ( Caballero & Caballero-Rodríguez, 1964)   , and included into the genera Atrophecaecum ( Groschaft & Barus, 1970)   and Proctocaecum   (Lamothe- Argumedo & Ponciano-Rodríguez, 1985). Likewise, it has been synonymized with Acanthostomum scyphocephalum ( Nasir, 1974)   and Acanthostomum megacetabulum ( Brooks, 1980)   ; however, this last proposal has been questioned recently ( Tkach & Snyder, 2003). The specimens from Arroyo Ayancual and Río Salinas were recorded as Acanthostomum sp.   ( Iruegas-Buentello, 1979). Holotype in the personal collection of Eduardo Caballero y Caballero.
