Morphological and Molecular Diagnosis of Anisakid Nematode Larvae from Cutlassfish (Trichiurus lepturus) off the Coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
TLDR
The morphological and genetic profiles confirmed that the larval Anisakis exhibit a higher abundance and intensity of infection in the winter months, and those of Hysterothylacium during the summer, but the t-test indicated no significant differences between the abundance andintensity of infection recorded during the months of collection for either of these larval nematodes.
Checklist of Nematoda associated with the fishes of Brazil
Seventy-four genera comprising approximately 140 named and 75 undetermined species of adult and larval nematodes are associated with about 330 named and 50 undetermined species of marine, brackish
Pseudorhabdosynochus spp. (Monogenea: Diplectanidae) from the gills of Epinephelus spp. in Brazilian waters
Pseudorhabdosynochus sulamericanus n. sp. from the gills of Epinephelus niveatus has a reniform proximal region of the cirrus-bulb which is divided in four chambers and contains a large, round
Checklist of the helminth parasites of South American bats.
TLDR
This work represents the first comprehensive checklist of the helminth parasites (nematodes, acanthocephalans, trematodes and cestodes) of South American bats, with an indication of how the bats become infected.
A checklist of the aspidogastrea (platyhelminthes: trematoda) of the world.
TLDR
The majority of records include bivalves, whereas records from bony fishes represent 32% of host-parasite associations, and a limited number of molecular studies on aspidogastreans does not allow us to unravel phylogenetic relationships within the AspidogASTrea.
Goezia spinulosa (Nematoda: Raphidascarididae), a pathogenic parasite of the arapaima Arapaima gigas (Osteichthyes).
TLDR
Light and electron microscopy examinations revealed some previously unreported or inaccurately described morphological features in the species, such as the position of the excretory pore, phasmids in the male or the number of postanal papillae.
REDESCRIPTION OF ASCOCOTYLE (ASCOCOTYLE) FELIPPEI TRAVASSOS, 1928 (DIGENEA: HETEROPHIYDAE) WITH NEW SYNONYMIES
TLDR
Examination of the type and all voucher specimens of A. (A.) felippei collected by Travassos in the type host and locality in Brazil has shown that they possess only 32 (16 + 16) circumoral spines, rather than 36 (18 + 18) spines as previously reported.
