Shaking the Tree: Multi-locus Sequence Typing Usurps Current Onchocercid (Filarial Nematode) Phylogeny
TLDR
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. Expand
New species of Rhabdias (Nematoda: Rhabdiasidae) from afrotropical anurans, including molecular evidence and notes on biology.
TLDR
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. Expand

  • 13 September 2007
TLDR
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. Expand
Rhabdias rhampholeonis n. sp. and Rhabdias mariauxi n. sp. (Nematoda, Rhabdiasoidea), first lung worms from leaf chameleons: description, molecular evidence and notes on biology.
TLDR
Two new lung worms from leaf chameleons are introduced, similar to the majority of species parasitic in chamaeleonids by having a long and thick body, but the number of infective larvae produced per free-living female (one or two) was not fixed. Expand
The helminth community of Helmeted Guineafowls, Numida meleagris (Linnaeus, 1758), in the north of Limpopo Province, South Africa.
TLDR
The number of component species and overall abundance did not differ significantly between juvenile and adult hosts, but Cyrnea parroti was significantly more abundant, and the prevalence of Hadjelia truncata was higher in young birds than in adults. Expand
Description of Pelonia africana n. g., n. sp. (Pentastomida: Sebekidae) from the lungs of Pelomedusa subrufa and Pelusios sinuatus (Chelonia) in South Africa.

  • The Onderstepoort journal of veterinary research
  • 1 March 2002
TLDR
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. Expand
A new type F Wolbachia from Splendidofilariinae (Onchocercidae) supports the recent emergence of this supergroup.
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses confirmed a recent emergence of supergroup F Wolbachia and suggested several events of horizontal transmission between nematodes and arthropods in this supergroup, and the existence of different metabolic interactions between the filarial nem atodes and their symbionts. Expand
Review of the genus Mansonella Faust, 1929 sensu lato (Nematoda: Onchocercidae), with descriptions of a new subgenus and a new subspecies.
TLDR
The elevation of Sandnema to full genus rank comprising the two species S. sunci and S. digitatum (Chandler, 1929) n. Expand
Pentastomid parasites in fish in the Olifants and Incomati River systems, South Africa
During parasitological field surveys of freshwater fish, sebekiid and subtriquetrid pentastome larvae were recovered from the body cavity or swim bladder of several fish species from variousExpand
Redescription of Diesingia megastoma (Diesing, 1836) Sambon, 1922, a pentastomid parasite from the South American terrapin Hydromedusa tectifera Cope
TLDR
The absence of an elaborate, flared cirrus-tip in D. megastomadistinguishes it from Leiperia, while emphasizing its similarity to the remaining genera mentioned above. Expand
