          Abstract

          The collection of eight specimens of Acanthobothrium cartagenensis on the coast of Quintana Roo, México extends the geographic distribution of the species from the original locality (Cartagena, Colombia) to at least the northeastern limit of the Mexican coast of the Caribbean Sea.  The species is a parasite of Urobatis jamaicensis, a common stingray of the tropical western Atlantic.  This species has not been reported since the original description in 1980.
