Monogenean anchor morphometry: systematic value, phylogenetic signal, and evolution
Background. Anchors are one of the important attachment appendages for monogenean parasites. Common descent and evolutionary processes have left their mark on anchor morphometry, in the form of
EIGHT NEW SPECIES OF LIGOPHORUS EUZET & SURIANO , 1977 ( MONOGENEA : ANCYROCEPHALIDAE ) FROM MUGILIDS OFF PENINSULAR MALAYSIA
TLDR
Eight new species of Ligophorus are described from Liza subviridis Valenciennes and Valamugil buchanani Bleeker off Carey Island and off Langkawi Island, Peninsular Malaysia and the eight new species are morphologically different from each other and the 42 known species.
Three new species of Ligophorus Euzet & Suriano, 1977 (Monogenea: Ancyrocephalidae) from Moolgarda buchanani (Bleeker) off Johor, Malaysia based on morphological, morphometric and molecular data.
TLDR
A monophyletic clade is recovered that includes the three new species, and three previously described species, from Moolgarda buchanani off Johor, Malaysia, with differences primarily observed in size and shape of anchors, bars and male copulatory organs.

TLDR
The principal component analysis (PCA) scatterplots indicate that the two new and eight known Ligophorus species from Malaysian mugilids can be differentiated based on the morphometries of their anchors, ventral bars and copulatory organ separately and when combined together.
