Cryptic speciation and patterns of phenotypic variation of a highly variable acanthocephalan parasite
An investigation of a parasite species that is broadly host‐ and habitat‐specific and exhibits alternative transmission strategies was undertaken to examine intraspecific variability and if it can beExpand

First Sequenced Mitochondrial Genome from the Phylum Acanthocephala(Leptorhynchoides thecatus) and Its Phylogenetic Position Within Metazoa
The complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Leptorhynchoides thecatus (Acanthocephala) was determined, and a phylogenetic analysis was carried out to determine its placement within Metazoa.Expand

Reintroduction of Profilicollis Meyer, 1931, as a genus in acenthocephala: significance of the intermediate host.
Polymorphid acanthocephalans with long necks, spheroid proboscides, and eggs without polar swellings of the fertilization membrane constitute a morphologically distinct group of species. In the past,Expand

DEVELOPMENTAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ACANTHOCEPHALANS AND ALTERED PIGMENTATION IN FRESHWATER ISOPODS
Only small (4.0-5.0 mm) Asellus intermedius could be infected routinely with Acanthoceph- alus jacksoni in the laboratory. Acanthocephlus jacksoni required 90 days at 20 to 25 C to completeExpand

CORYNOSOMA MAGDALENI IN GRAY SEALS FROM THE GULF OF BOTHNIA, WITH EMENDED DESCRIPTIONS OF CORYNOSOMA STRUMOSUM AND CORYNOSOMA MAGDALENI
Because of the likelihood that Corynosoma magdaleni Montreuil, 1958, has been confused with C. strumosum (Rudolphi, 1802) in reports of parasites from seals and to clarify its distribution in theExpand

EFFECT OF CYSTACANTH BODY SIZE ON ADULT SUCCESS
Laboratory-reared cystacanths of Leptorhynchoides thecatus (Acanthocephala: Rhadinorhynchidae) were used to study the effect of cystacanth size on adult success and the factors that influenceExpand

EFFECTS OF ACANTHOCEPHALANS ON PIGMENTATION OF FRESHWATER ISOPODS
The isopods Asellus intermzedius, Lirceus garmani, and L. lineatus were studied to document further the occurrence of altered pigmentation in these hosts infected with species of Acanthocephalus.Expand

ACANTHOCEPHALANS FROM CRABS IN THE SOUTHEASTERN U.S., WITH THE FIRST INTERMEDIATE HOSTS KNOWN FOR ARHYTHMORHYNCHUS FRASSONI AND HEXAGLANDULA CORYNOSOMA
Cystacanths of Hexaglandula corynosoma were discovered in the fiddler crabs Uca spinicarpa and Uca rapax collected in Mississippi and Florida. Adults were present in yellow-crowned night herons,Expand

Biology of the Acanthocephala
A knowledge of this phylum of parasitic worms is essential for helminthologists and instructive for all research workers investigating the principles of parasitism. Each of the chapters is written byExpand

Structure and function of the fibrillar coat of Leptorhynchoides thecatus eggs.
Leptorhynchoides thecatus eggs in fish feces were discovered to lack a thin, outer membrane present on eggs removed from body cavities of freashly collected worms; and to possess external structuresExpand
