New genus of opecoelid trematode from Pristipomoides aquilonaris (Perciformes: Lutjanidae) and its phylogenetic affinity within the family Opecoelidae.
The new genus is morphologically similar to Neolebouria Gibson, 1976, but with a longer cirrus sac, entire testes, a rounded posterior margin with a cleft, and an apparent restriction to the deepwater snappers.

Results reveal that M. crassigula sensu stricto from the Gulf of Mexico is distinct from the two cryptic species of M. fasciata from the Mediterranean Sea, thus Helicometra manteri sp.

A Bayesian inference analysis of partial 28S rDNA sequences of the two New World species of Forticulcita, XihaFastigata and previously published haploporids places Xiha fastigata within theForticulcitinae and sister to ForticULcita.
New species of Plagioporus Stafford, 1904 (Digenea: Opecoelidae) from California, with an amendment of the genus and a phylogeny of freshwater plagioporines of the Holarctic
This analysis represents the first phylogenetic study of the opecoelids that estimates the interrelationships of the Plagioporinae that includes a member of Plagiospermia and reveals plagioporines parasitising freshwater hosts form a monophyletic group.

Rhomboplites aurorubens represents a new host record for at least 8 of the parasites and Ribosomal DNA sequences from 7 of the helminth species were generated and made available in the National Institutes of Health genetic sequence database (GenBank).
Two New Species of Saccocoelioides (Digenea: Haploporidae) with Phylogenetic Analysis of the Family, Including Species of Saccocoelioides from North, Middle, and South America
Molecular data call into question some existing species identifications in Saccocoelioides and reveal that molecular tools combined with traditional taxonomy are required for accurately identifying species in the genus.
A New Species of Podocotyloides (Digenea: Opecoelidae) from the Grey Conger Eel, Conger esculentus, in the Caribbean Sea
Podocotyloides brevis, the first report of a member of this genus from the Caribbean Sea and from a host species collected as deep as 200 m, can be separated from the other 13 accepted species in the genus by having a shorter cirrus sac.

Determining sources of sediment to coastal systems is an important and complex problem that figures prominently in a myriad of geological, geomorphological, geochemical, and biological processes.…
Endohelminth parasites of some midwater and benthopelagic stomiiform fishes from the northern Gulf of Mexico
This study represents the first published sequences from thenGOM for the fishes Argyropelecus aculeatus, Maurolicus weitzmani, and Polyipnus clarus and the first molecular identification of larval ascaridoids from mesopelagic fishes in the nGOM.
