Panuco: Mante Spring (22°41'57"N, 99°2'43"W).


Conservation: A couple of kilometers downstream of the El Nacimiento, after a point called Las Agujas (an artificial dam) the water is deviated to irrigation channels, and the river after that point is converted to a small creek. The African Tilapia Oreochromis sp. is also present but the risk is difficult to evaluate.
