Impact DescriptionMisgurnus anguillicaudatus carries Bothriocephalus acheilognathi (Asian Fish Tapeworm).
NotesBothriocephalus acheilognathi was originally described as several species and is known by multiple synonyms. Bothriocephalus acheilognathi is the correct name as of 9/20/2019, though this may change in the future. This name is not currently listed in ITIS, and due to confusion with possible synonyms I chose to go with the Generic TSN.
