Title:Acanthocephala from the Illinois River with Descriptions of Species and a Synopsis of the Family Neoechinorhynchidae
Author(s):Van Cleave, H.J.
Illinois River
fresh-water hosts
Abstract:There has been no published record of extensive study upon the Acanthocephala from fresh-water hosts for any part of North America. The only regional studies pursued in this country have been those of Linton (1889, 1891, 1901, and 1905) on the Acanthocephala of marine fishes, from New England southward along the Atlantic Coast. Most of the European studies aside from Zschokke's (1884), and a few others, have been compilations of host records from results of investigations in widely scattered regions. Usually these lists have ignored the geographical distribution of the parasites or have implied for them a distibution equivalent to the distribution of the hosts. Because of inaccuracies in many of the early investigations and the numerous erroneous identifications of European species these lists have comparatively little biological value.
