The Monogenean Which Lost Its Clamps
TLDR
It is concluded that clamps in protomicrocotylids are vestigial organs, and that occurrence of “gastrocotylid” and simpler “microcotylid" clamps within the same family are steps in an evolutionary sequence, leading to the absence of these attributes in species of Lethacotyle.
Underexplored diversity of gill monogeneans in cichlids from Lake Tanganyika: eight new species of Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae) from the northern basin of the lake, with
BackgroundLake Tanganyika harbours the most diverse cichlid assemblage of the Great African Lakes. Considering its cichlid flocks consist of approximately 250 endemic species, we can hypothesize a
Seven new species of Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae) parasitizing the gills of Congolese cichlids from northern Lake Tanganyika
TLDR
This paper provides additional evidence of the high species richness of Cichlidogyrus and the link with their hosts’s phylogenetic affinities in LT and represents the first parasitological examination of cyphotilapiine cichlids hosts.
Intraspecific morphological variation in Cichlidogyrus (Monogenea) parasitizing two cichlid hosts from Lake Tanganyika exhibiting different dispersal capacities
TLDR
Geomorphometric analyses revealed that populations of C. milangelnari, which parasitize poorly dispersing cichlids, are more differentiated than populations ofC.
Diversity of gill monogeneans in cichlids from Lake Tanganyika: taxonomic and phylogenetic perspectives
TLDR
This investigation represents the first parasitological examination of representatives belonging to the Tanganyikan cichlid genera Aulonocranus, Callochromis, Cyphotilapia, Cyprichrom is, Eretmodus, Tanganicodus, and Xenotilapian and provides a morphological characterization of 7 undescribed CichLidogyrus species.
CICHLIDOGYRUS (DACTYLOGYRIDAE) FROM LAKE TANGANYIKA: A PHYLOGENETIC APPROACH OF THE MONOGENEAN PARASITE FAUNA OF TANGANYIKA CICHLID TRIBES
TLDR
An evaluation of the phylogenetic relationships of cichlid mononeneans parasitizing the different Lake Tanganyika cichLid tribes may help to elucidate the historic and ecological relationships between cICHlid tribes and to determine the origin of CichlIDogyrus of Lake Tanganyaika ciclids.
