Systematic revision of dactylogyridean parasites (Monogenea) from cichlid fishes in Africa, the Levant and Madagascar
TLDR
Systematic revision is made of the six dactylogyridean genera (Monogenea) described on African, Levantine and Malagasy cichlid fishes.
Gill parasites of the genus Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Monogenea, Ancyrocephalidae) from Tilapia guineensis (Bleeker, 1862), with descriptions of six new species
TLDR
In the first three species cited, it is reported the presence of an auxiliary plate in the male copulatory complex which is characteristic of the species C. aegypticus Ergens, 1981, a parasite of Tilapia zillii.
Can host body size explain the parasite species richness in tropical freshwater fishes?
TLDR
This study shows that the deciding factors for explaining monogenean species richness in West African cyprinid fishes are host species size and host ecology.
TAXONOMIC STATUS OF LIGOPHORUS MUGILINUS (HARGIS, 1955) (MONOGENEA: ANCYROCEPHALIDAE), WITH A DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES OF LIGOPHORUS FROM MUGIL CEPHALUS (TELEOSTEI: MUGILIDAE) IN THE
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that flathead mullets from different seas harbor different species complexes of Ligophorus, and it is suggested that open oceans could act as geographical barriers favoring speciation within disjointed flat head mullet populations.
Analysis of Calliobothrium (Tetraphyllidea:Onchobothriidae) with descriptions of three new species and erection of a new genus.
TLDR
A cladistic analysis was performed on 12 of the 13 species of Calliobothrium recognized after the descriptions of the new taxa, using 34 characters and 4 outgroup taxa to suggest that Calliabothrium is monophyletic only when the biloculated species CalliOBothrium pritchardae is excluded from the genus.
DESCRIPTION AND MORPHOMETRICAL VARIABILITY OF A NEW SPECIES OF LIGOPHORUS AND OF LIGOPHORUS CHABAUDI (MONOGENEA: DACTYLOGYRIDAE) ON MUGIL CEPHALUS (TELEOSTEI) FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN BASIN
A comparative morphological study of specimens of Ligophorus spp. from Mugil cephalus in western Mediterranean and the Black Sea localities has been carried out, indicating the presence of 2 distinct
Scutogyrus gen. n. (Monogenea: Ancyrocephalidae) for Cichlidogyrus longicornis minus Dossou, 1982, C. l. longicornis, and C. l. gravivaginus Paperna and Thurston, 1969, with description of three new
Scutogyrus gen. n. (Monogenae: Ancyrocephalidae) is defined for Cichlidogyrus longicornis minus Dossou, 1982, on Sarotherodon melanotheron (Cichlidae). This new genus is characterized by a dorsal
Four new species of Cichlidogyrus (Monogenea: Ancyrocephalidae), gill parasites of Tilapia cabrae (Teleostei: Cichlidae), with discussion on relative length of haptoral sclerites.
TLDR
Four new species of the Monogenea were found, all belonging to Cichlidogyrus (Ancyrocephalidae), and a possible relationship between the relative size of haptoral sclerites and microhabitat selection in the studied host-parasite model is discussed.
