Measurements from infections in the type host are given in μm, as M ± SD (range) (when available).

a

Measurements from the original description in Squalius cephalus, since M. leuciscini was morphologically and molecularly re-described from this fish host in Hungary [58].

b

Data from the morphological re-description and molecular identification of the parasite from its original site of infection and host species in Hungary [57].
