Ophiotaenia filaroides (La Rue)  

Amphibia   (A): Intestine.

DISTRITO FEDERAL: Lago   de Xochimilco: Lithobates montezumae ( Macías-Palacios, 1963)   . ESTADO DE MÉXICO: Lago   de Texcoco: Lithobates montezumae (CNHE)   ; Laguna   de Zumpango: Ambystoma tigrinum ( García-Prieto, 1986)   . MICHOACÁN: Lago   de Pátzcuaro: Lithobates dunni ( Pulido-Flores, 1994)   .

NUEVO LEÓN: La Laguna   (Higueras): Lithobates berlandieri ( León-Règagnon et al., 2005b)   .

Specimens deposited: CNHE (396, 426, 429-30, 4636).

Notes: The genus Ophiotaenia   has been considered a synonym of Proteocephalus ( Brooks, 1978)   . However, in a phylogenetic analysis of the order Proteocephalidea, De Chambrier et al. (2004)   evaluated the structure of the clade Proteocephalus   and showed that Proteocephalus species   are fundamentally parasites of Palaearctic fishes. Material from Laguna   de Zumpango was included in Batrachotaenia ( García-Prieto, 1986)   , junior synonym of Ophiotaenia ( Brooks, 1978)   .
