The evolution of the Proteocephalidea (Platyhelminthes, Eucestoda) based on an enlarged molecular phylogeny, with comments on their uterine development
TLDR
The phylogeny does not support the classical view of a Neotropical origin for the Proteocephalidea but rather favours an Old World origin of the group either in saurians or Palaearctic Siluriformes.
Preliminary phylogenetic analysis of subfamilies of the Proteocephalidea (Eucestoda)
TLDR
Analysis of parasite-host relationships indicated that the basal hosts for the Proteocephalidea are equivocal; siluriform teleosts were, however, the basalhosts for the Nupeliinae + the Monticelliidae and Proteecephalidae subclades and an extensive co-evolutionary history with this host group is postulated.
Nomimoscolex suspectus n. sp. (Eucestoda: Proteocephalidea: Zygobothriinae) with morphological and molecular phylogenetic analyses of the genus
TLDR
A new species of Nomimoscolex is described from the Amazon siluriform fishes Brachyplatystoma filamentosum, B. flavicans and B. vaillanti, which is recognised as an aggregate of species to reflect an isolation supported by both morphological and genetic data.
Revision of Gangesia (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea) in the Indomalayan Region: Morphology, Molecules and Surface Ultrastructure
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis based on the partial sequences encoding the large nuclear ribosomal subunit RNA gene has shown that three Indomalayan species, namely G. bengalensis, G. macrones and G. vachai, form a monophyletic group within Gangesia, whereas G. agraensis tends to form a clade with the Palaearctic species of the genus.
Scolex morphology of the cestode Silurotaenia siluri (Batsch, 1786) (Proteocephalidae: Gangesiinae), a parasite of European wels (Silurus glanis)
TLDR
The morphology of the scolex of the tapeworm Silurotaenia siluri (Batsch, 1786) (Proteocephalidae: Gangesiinae), a specific parasite of European wels, was studied using light, scanning (SEM), and transmission electron microscopy.
Tapeworms (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea) of firewood catfish Sorubimichthys planiceps (Siluriformes: Pimelodidae) from the Amazon River.
TLDR
A survey of proteocephalidean cestodes found in the firewood catfish Sorubimichthys planiceps from the Amazon River is provided, finding a new genus, Lenhataenia, which has all genital organs in the cortex, and is most similar to Chambriella in possessing biloculate suckers and lacking a metascolex.
A new tapeworm, Postgangesia inarmata n. sp. (Eucestoda: Proteocephalidea: Gangesiinae), parasitic in Silurus glanis (Siluriformes) from Iraq and some comments on the Gangesiinae Mola, 1929
TLDR
A new species of cestode belonging to Postgangesia Akhmerov, 1969 (Proteocephalidea: Gangesiinae) is described from the catfish Silurus glanis Linnaeus in Iraq, the second species known from this genus.
A large 28S rDNA-based phylogeny confirms the limitations of established morphological characters for classification of proteocephalidean tapeworms (Platyhelminthes, Cestoda)
TLDR
This study analyzed the largest proteocephalidean cestode molecular dataset to date comprising more than 100 species, including representatives from 54 genera and all subfamilies, thus significantly improving upon previous works to develop a molecular phylogeny for the group.
Tapeworms (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea) of Fishes from the Amazon River in Peru
TLDR
In addition to adult tapeworms, larvae (metacestodes) of proteocephalideans were found encysted in the mesenteries, intestinal wall, and gills of small catfish.
Annotated checklist of fish cestodes from South America
TLDR
An annotated checklist of tapeworms (Cestoda) that parasitize freshwater, brackish water and marine fishes, i.e. cartilaginous and bony fishes, in South America is presented and the current knowledge of their species diversity, host associations and geographical distribution is reviewed.
