Growth and reproduction of Chelidonichthys lucerna (Linnaeus) (Pisces: Triglidae) in the Gulf of Gabès, Tunisia
TLDR
Growth and reproduction of Chelidonichthys lucerna is reported from Tunisian waters and females with mature gonads were observed between October and May, with peaks in January and February.
Diet of Chelidonichthys obscurus and Chelidonichthys lastoviza (Pisces: Triglidae) from the Gulf of Gabes (Tunisia)
TLDR
A biologically significant diet overlap was observed between Chelidonichthys lastoviza and C. obscurus in the Gulf of Gabes, indicating a lack of competition among triglid species size-class combinations or strong competition that has not yet led to resource portioning.
ULTRASTRUCTURE OF THE SPERMATOZOON OF PARACHRISTIANELLA TRYGONIS DOLLFUS, 1946 (TRYPANORHYNCHA: EUTETRARHYNCHIDAE)
TLDR
The present study emphasizes the ultrastructural similarity between mature spermatozoa of all 4 trypanorhynchs that have been studied to date and suggests the possible presence of an arclike layer of cortical microtubules in some of them.
[Description of Scalithrium n. gen. (Cestoda, Tetraphyllidea) with Scalithrium minimum (Van Beneden, 1850) n. comb., a parasite of Dasyatis pastinaca (Elasmobranchii, Dasyatidae), as type species].
TLDR
The new genus Scalithrium (Tetraphyllidea, Phyllobothriidae, Rhine bothriinae) is erected for several species previously included in the genus Rhinebothrium, which has a scolex with four bothridia, the distal surface of which is divided by transverse septa in a single row of loculi.
Digenean species diversity in teleost fishes from the Gulf of Gabes, Tunisia (Western Mediterranean)
TLDR
The Gulf of Gabes shows the lowest diversity linked to the anthropogenic activities and impact of exotic species, and the use of Digenea as indicators of the state of the ecosystem is discussed.
Descriptions of Philometra aenei n. sp. and P. tunisiensis n. sp. (Nematoda: Philometridae) from Epinephelus spp. off Tunisia confirm a high degree of host specificity of gonad-infecting species of
TLDR
The presence of three morphologically very different species of Philometra in congeneric hosts in the Mediterranean Sea confirms a high degree of host specificity of these gonad-infecting nematodes parasitising groupers.
Five new species of Pseudorhabdosynochus (Monogenea: Diplectanidae) from the gills of Epinephelus costae (Teleostei: Serranidae).
TLDR
These five species are the first diplectanids described from E. costae, and differ from each other and from all described species of Pseudorhabdosynochus by the morphology and size of their sclerotized vagina.
Two New Species of Macrobothridium (Cestoda: Diphyllidea) from Rhinobatid Elasmobranchs in the Gulf of Gabès, Tunisia, with Notes on the Status of the Genus
TLDR
2 new species of diphyllidean cestodes of metazoan parasites of elasmobranch fishes in the Gulf of Gabès, Tunisia are discovered and a standardized formula for representing the number and arrangement of rostellar hooks in diphyLLidean species is presented.
