Big-scaled redfin

  (Redirected from Tribolodon hakonensis)

The big-scaled redfin (Tribolodon hakonensis), also known as the Japanese dace,[1] is a medium-sized Asian fish.[2] First described by Albert Günther in 1877 as Leuciscus hakonensis,[2] it is the type specimen of the genus Tribolodon, having been described again as Tribolodon punctatum by Henri Émile Sauvage when he established that genus in 1883.[3] It is the most widely distributed of the Tribolodon species, found over much of the Sea of Japan.[4] It is known to carry a number of parasites, including the trematode species Centrocestus armatus (for which it is a second intermediate host),[5] and the copepod species Ergasilus fidiformis, which is carried in the fish's gills.[6]
