          Abstract

          In order to contribute to the knowledge on helminth parasites of freshwater fishes in Mexico, the helminth fauna of the cyprinid fish Notropis moralesi was studied. The helminth species Bothriocephalus acheilognathi and Rhabdochona canadensis were recovered from 20 examined hosts. Values of prevalence, abundance and mean intensity of each infection are provided. Present work represents the first helminthological study for N. moralesi. Therefore, both helminth species recorded are new host records. This is the second report of B. acheilognathi and the first of R. canadensis for the state of Puebla.
