A comprehensive survey of DNA sequences derived from the mitochondrial NADH2 gene was conducted for elasmobranchs collected from around the world, suggesting 79 potentially new taxa that are genetically distinct from their closest relatives in other regions.

Interest in elasmobranch biodiversity and taxonomy has grown in recent years, catalyzed primarily by four influences: (1) the large number of new species that have been described over the past 30…
Planetary Biodiversity Inventory (2008–2017): Tapeworms from Vertebrate Bowels of the Earth
Characterization of a diversity of tetraphyllidean and rhinebothriidean cestode larval types, with comments on host associations and life-cycles.
Orders out of chaos--molecular phylogenetics reveals the complexity of shark and stingray tapeworm relationships.
On the phylogenetic relationships among tetraphyllidean, lecanicephalidean and diphyllidean tapeworm genera
The tetraphyllideans, lecanicephalideans and proteocephalideans are more closely related to each other than they are to the diphyllideans or the trypanorhynchs, and some aspects of the classification of the lecanICEphalidean and tet graphyllidean taxa require revision.
Proposal for a new tapeworm order, Rhinebothriidea.
A Digest of Elasmobranch Tapeworms
The tapeworms of elasmobranchs and their hosts are now among the most well documented host-parasite systems in existence, but this system has not yet reached its potential as a resource for investigations of basic ecological and evolutionary principles.
Evolution of the trypanorhynch tapeworms: parasite phylogeny supports independent lineages of sharks and rays.
