Integrated morphological and molecular analyses demonstrated the presence of three species among the larval and adult isolates of Diplostomum spp.
New molecular and morphological data for opecoelid digeneans in two Mediterranean sparid fishes with descriptions of Macvicaria gibsoni n. sp. and M. crassigula (Linton, 1910) (sensu stricto)

Phylogenetic analyses based on ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 and partial 28S rDNA sequences provided evidence for the distinct species status of eight Mediterranean species of Macvicaria.
Effects of fishing on parasitism in a sparid fish: contrasts between two areas of the Western Mediterranean.

Community of larval trematodes in the lake-adapted R. auricularia are better suited for monitoring the effect of environmental change on host-parasite associations in the reservoir system on the Ruhr River and other similar systems due to the important role of this host in trematode transmission in lakes.
Composition and seasonal dynamics of the parasite communities of Scyliorhinus canicula (L., 1758) and Galeus melastomus Rafinesque, 1810 (Elasmobranchii) from the NW Mediterranean Sea in relation to…

The parasite communities of Scyliorhinus canicula and Galeus melastomus are studied for the first time in the Mediterranean and monogenean parasites were associated to high turbidity and temperature levels, which are known to enhance monogenan infection and reproductive success.
Descriptions of digeneans from Sardina pilchardus (Walbaum) (Clupeidae) off the Algerian coast of the western Mediterranean, with a complete list of its helminth parasites

Five species of digeneans parasitic in the pilchard Sardina pilchardus (Walbaum), a little studied host, from off the Algerian coast of the western Mediterranean are redescribed. These are…
Determining suitable fish to monitor plastic ingestion trends in the Mediterranean Sea.
The systematics of the trematoda.
This chapter focuses on insights into the classification of the Digenea that crystallised from the advanced understanding of both morphological and molecular data, and a framework that has led to robust estimates of phylogeny is outlined.
