Although Daniconema anguillae has been detected infrequently and in few countries only, this nematode can be regarded as one of the most common parasites of the European eel (Anguilla anguilla). These extremely thin, fragile helminths are tissue parasites and, thus, difficult to detect. The most likely site of detection is the fin of the eel, where imagoes are occasionally accompanied by large numbers of third-stage larvae of arrested development.
