Multidisciplinary approach in study of the zoonotic Anisakis larval infection in the blue mackerel (Scomber australasicus) and the largehead hairtail (Trichiurus lepturus) in Northern Taiwan.
TLDR
A. pegreffii is the most abundant species and may be the potential causes of human infection in commonly consumed fish species purchased in Taipei Xinyi traditional fish market. Expand
Morphological polymorphism in tapeworms: redescription of Caryophyllaeus laticeps (Pallas, 1781) (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea) and characterisation of its morphotypes from different fish hosts
TLDR
Five distinct morphotypes of C. laticeps, largely corresponding to different fish hosts and representing separate, yet closely related genetic lineages, have been recognised and they are characterised and confirmed the key discriminating power of traits related to the reproductive system, especially the terminal reproductive organs. Expand
Phenotypic plasticity in Caryophyllaeus brachycollis Janiszewska, 1953 (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea): does fish host play a role?
TLDR
The presence of phenotypic plasticity in morphological characteristics previously used for differentiation of species of Caryophyllaeus may confound species identification, which is crucial for biodiversity, ecological and evolutionary studies. Expand
A synoptic review of Caryophyllaeus Gmelin, 1790 (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea), parasites of cyprinid fishes.
TLDR
Tapeworms of the genus Caryophyllaeus Gmelin, 1790, common parasites of cyprinid fishes, are reviewed and taxonomic status of 42 nominal taxa that have been placed in the genus during its long history is clarified. Expand
A new species of Clinostomum Leidy, 1856 in East Asia based on genomic and morphological data
TLDR
Although sequences of nuclear rDNA did not differ between isolates from the west and East Asia, taken together, these results lead us to describe a new species of Clinostomum. Expand
Asian fish tapeworm, Khawia japonensis (Yamaguti, 1934), has expanded its European invasive range
TLDR
The invasive fish tapeworm, Khawia japonensis (Yamaguti, 1934) originally described in Japan, is reported for the first time in Slovakia and increases its distribution area within this continent. Expand
The occurrence of the non-native tapeworm Khawia japonensis (Yamaguti, 1934) (Cestoda) in cultured common carp in the Czech Republic confirms its recent expansion in Europe
TLDR
Another record of the Asian non-native fish tapeworm Khawia japonensis (Yamaguti, 1934) (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea) from common carp in Europe is reported, which confirms recent expansion of the parasite in Europe. Expand
Complex insight on microanatomy of larval “human broad tapeworm” Dibothriocephalus latus (Cestoda: Diphyllobothriidea)
TLDR
A well-developed glandular system and massive hook-shaped uncinate spinitriches are thus probably required for plerocercoids inhabiting fish hosts and also for their post-infection attachment in the human intestine. Expand
A Study of Fish Lice (Argulus Sp.) Infection in Freshwater Food Fish
TLDR
Evidence of a mixed infection of Pike-perch with both A. foliaceus and A. japonicus was found in samples from Zemplínska Šírava, which was substantiated by electron microscopic examination. Expand
Redescription of Acanthogyrus (Acanthosentis) maroccanus (Dollfus, 1951) (Acanthocephala: Quadrigyridae), a parasite of the Algerian barb Luciobarbus callensis (Valenciennes) (Cyprinidae) in Algeria,
TLDR
The mechanism of copulation of this acanthocephalan is described based on several copulating pairs and the phylogenetic position of A. (A.) maroccanus within EoacanthoCEphala was assessed based on partial 28S rDNA sequences. Expand
