Molecular identification of developmental stages in Opecoelidae (Digenea).
Digenean species diversity in teleost fish from a nature reserve off Corsica, France (Western Mediterranean), and a comparison with other Mediterranean regions
A more detailed analysis of the diversity of these parasites in sparid fishes indicates that the digenean diversity off Corsica is far greater than that in other parts of the Mediterranean.
Synopsis of the life cycles of Digenea (Platyhelminthes) from lagoons of the northern coast of the western Mediterranean
The present document reports on the large amount of data relating to digenean parasites recorded from or known to be present in various hosts in lagoons of the northern coast of the western…
The life cycle of Opecoeloides columbellae (Pagenstecher, 1863) n. comb. (Digenea, opecoelidae): evidence from molecules and morphology.
Relationships within the Acanthocolpidae Lühe,1906 and their place among the Digenea
Evidence from sister taxa indicates that the parasites of piscivorous marine mammals, the Brachycladiidae, are derived from piscvorous marine fish parasites.
The Opecoelidae (Digenea) of sparid fishes of the western Mediterranean. I. Pachycreadium Manter, 1954
Problems of the systematics of the Opecoelidae in the Mediterranean region are discussed. The genus Pachycreadium Manter, 1954 is redefined and its validity commented upon. Pachycreadium carnosum…
Contribution to the knowledge of species of the genus Stephanostomum Looss, 1899 (Digenea: Acanthocolpidae) from teleosts of the Western Mediterranean, with the description of S. gaidropsari n. sp.
Four species of the acanthocolpid genus Stephanostomum are redescribed from the digestive tract of teleosts in the Western Mediterranean: the type-species is described with a ventrally interrupted ring of 35 circum-oral spines and as lacking a uroproct.
Use of the ITS rDNA for elucidation of some life-cycles of Mesometridae (Trematoda, Digenea).
Community structure of digenean parasites of sparid and labrid fishes of the Mediterranean sea: a new approach
The results showed that potential microhabitats were vacant in the 2 host families studied revealing a lack of niche saturation because either there was little inter- and/or intraspecific competition or there were enough available space and resources within the host.
Redescriptions of two cryptogonimid digeneans from the fish Dentex dentex (L., 1758) (Sparidae) in the Mediterranean Sea
Redescriptions are presented of two little known cryptogonimids, Aphallus tubarium (Rudolphi) and Metadena depressa (Stossich), which were originally described in the 19th Century. They are reported…
