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.

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.
The pathogenic Asian fish tapeworm, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi Yamaguti, 1934 (Cestoda) in the Red discus (Symphysodon discus)
This case study illustrates that ornamental fish play also a key role in national and international movements of parasites in freshwater habitats, and thorough quarantine and prophylactic measures needs to be done by all fish imports and introductions.

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.
A new species of Clinostomum Leidy, 1856 in East Asia based on genomic and morphological data
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.

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.

The new subfamily Corallobothriinae was monophyletic in all molecular phylogenetic analyses, being most closely related to three Neotropical proteocephalids from the redtail catfish, Phractocephalus hemioliopterus but distant from all remaining proteocephalid tapeworms from freshwater fishes in North America.
Phenotypic plasticity in Caryophyllaeus brachycollis Janiszewska, 1953 (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea): does fish host play a role?
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.
A synoptic review of Caryophyllaeus Gmelin, 1790 (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea), parasites of cyprinid fishes.
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.
