Dactylogyridean monogeneans of the siluriform fishes of the Old World
TLDR
It is proposed that the Ancylodiscoidinae be raised to family status within the order Dactylogyridea to accommodate these 17 `ancyrocephalid' genera from siluriforms, together with Malayanodiscoides and Notopterodiscoide from notopterids. Expand

  • Systematic Parasitology
  • 1 November 1996
TLDR
70 monogenean species assigned to Silurodiscoide, Parancylodiscoides, Wallagotrema and Urocleidus from Asian and Eurasian freshwater siluriformes are re-assigned to Thaparocleidus as new combinations. Expand
Phylogenetic position of the monogeneans Sundanonchus, Thaparocleidus, and Cichlidogyrus inferred from 28S rDNA sequences.
A molecular phylogeny was inferred from newly obtained partial 28S rRNA gene sequences of Sundanonchus micropeltis (Sundanonchidae), Thaparocleidus siamensis and Cichlidogyrus sp. (Ancyrocephalidae),Expand
A new monogenean genus from an ephippid fish off Peninsular Malaysia
TLDR
This new genus has the ancyrocephalid characteristics of four anchors, 14 marginal hooks and two bars, but differs from other four-anchored monogenean genera, and notably from Parancylodiscoides Caballero & Bravo Hollis, 1961, by having a unique combination of features. Expand
A Paedomorphic parasite associated with a neotenic amphibian host: phylogenetic evidence suggests a revised systematic position for Sphyranuridae within anuran and turtle Polystomatoineans.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the families Polystomatidae and Sphyranuridae within tetrapod monogenean parasites were investigated using partial 18S rDNA sequences, and polystomatoineans but not polyStomatids were shown to be monophyletic. Expand
Historical biogeography of amphibian parasites, genus Polystoma (Monogenea: Polystomatidae)
TLDR
The phylogeny of 12 species of neobatrachian parasites sampled from North and South America, Eurasia and Africa concludes that Polystoma originated in South America on hyloids, after the separation of South America from Africa. Expand
Three new species of Pseudohaliotrema Yamaguti, 1953 (Monogenea: Ancyrocephalidae) from Siganus species (Siganidae) and the description of a mechanism for cross-insemination
TLDR
Three new species of Pseudohaliotrema Yamaguti, 1953 were collected from two Siganus species caught off Singapore, including P. virgata n. Expand
Eight new species of Hamatopeduncularia Yamaguti, 1953 (Monogenea: Ancyrocephalidae) from Ariidae of Peninsular Malaysia

  • 2004
Eleven species of Hamatopeduncularia Yamaguti, 1953 were found on six species of ariids caught off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. They are: H. arii Yamaguti, 1953 from Arius maculatus; H.Expand
Two new species of ancyrocephalid monogeneans from Lethrinus rubrioperculatus Sato (Perciformes: Lethrinidae) off New Caledonia, with the proposal of Lethrinitrema n. g.
TLDR
Two new species of Lethrinitrema are described from the fish Lethrinus rubrioperculatus Sato collected off New Caledonia, South Pacific, characterised by having two pyriform haptoral reservoirs and ventral anchors with lateral grooves. Expand
Diversity of monogeneans in Southeast Asia.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • International journal for parasitology
  • 1 October 1998
TLDR
The diversity of monogeneans from Southeast Asia was examined using information from the literature to show their diversity at different taxonomic levels, and Malayan fauna is considered to be representative of the Southeast Asian fauna. Expand
