Ichthyophthirius multifiliis Fouquet, 1876, a fresh-water member of the Ophryoglenidae, and other "Ich-like" parasites of fresh-water fishes, appear to be limited in distribution and infectivity by the temperature tolerances of their hosts. Because of the widespread distribution of the parasite in aquaria, hatcheries, and rearing ponds, in tropical and temperate regions, probably multiple physiological races exist, perhaps even several separate species (possibly in more than one genus).
