Shaking the Tree: Multi-locus Sequence Typing Usurps Current Onchocercid (Filarial Nematode) Phylogeny
The data support the current hypothesis that the Oswaldofilariinae, Waltonellinae and IcosieLLinae subfamilies separated early from the remaining onchocercids, and Setariinae was recovered as a well separated clade.
Helminths of guineafowls in Limpopo Province, South Africa.
South Africa is a new geographic record for D. macrostomum, G. congolense and D. truncata from the Crested guineafowl constitute new host-parasite associations, and S. caudatus are recorded for the first time from Helmeted guineaafowls, as well as from South Africa.
Description of Pelonia africana n. g., n. sp. (Pentastomida: Sebekidae) from the lungs of Pelomedusa subrufa and Pelusios sinuatus (Chelonia) in South Africa.
The terrapins Pelomedusa subrufa and Pelusios sinuatus taken from a water reservoir in the Northern Province, South Africa, were examined for pentastome infections and a new monospecific genus, Pelonia africana, is described, characterized by smooth, dorsally convex hooks with sharply bent blades.

The remaining new species are clearly distinct from those previously known from Afrotropical anurans, and some Rhabdias species present characters similar to those observed in the new species, but they all differ in various other characters.
