Larvae and larval development of monogeneans.
Publisher Summary This chapter focusses on a group of parasitic platyhelminths generally referred to as monogenetic trematodes. A few monogeneans are viviparous and the newly-born young resemble theExpand
The host-specificity, micro-ecology, adhesive attitudes, and comparative morphology of some trematode gill parasites
This is the first attempt to investigate the distribution and morphology of the parasite diclidophoroidean trematodes in relation to their micro-habitats. Expand
Amphibdellid (monogenean) parasites of electric rays (Torpedinidae)
Little attention has been paid in taxonomy to the genitalia or host specificity, or, in spite of a record of an amphibdellid from the heart of its host, to micro-habitat, or to the function of thistransverse bar. Expand
A check-list of monogenean (platyhelminth) parasites of Plymouth hosts
The Plymouth Marine Fauna list of monogenean parasites of fishes has been increased from 39 to 58 species and in addition 2 species have been recorded from a cephalopod host. Expand
The adhesive mechanisms of monogenetic trematodes: the attachment of Plectanocotyle gurnardi (v. Ben. & Hesse) to the gills of Trigla
In the present paper the mechanism by which Plectanocotyle gurnardi adheres to its hosts Trigla cuculus L., and T. lineata Gmelin will be described. Expand
Spermatophores in the Monogenean Entobdella diadema Monticelli from the skin of sting-rays, with a note on the taxonomy of the parasite
Entobdella diadema produces spermatophores from a pair of follicular glands lying one on each side of the body alongside the main nerve cord, and the secretion of these glands is stored in aExpand
Reproduction in Acanthocot Yle Greeni n. sp. (Monogenea) from the Skin of Raia Spp. at Plymouth
While collecting acanthocotylid monogeneans for various investigations and in July 1978 nine more living worms were collected, the material was indeed found to require the erection of a new species and it is proposed to call the parasite AcanthOCotyle greeni. Expand
Observations on the food and the gut pigment of the Polyopisthocotylea (Trematoda: Monogenea).
It has been shown by spectroscopic and histochemical methods that eight representative species of Polyopisthocotylea feed mainly on the blood of their hosts, and in a more limited sample of skin-and cloaca-inhabiting Monopists there was no evidence of a blood-feeding habit. Expand
