The results corroborate the hypothesis that floods are one of the most significant influences on shaping the parasite communities of fish in floodplains and warn environmental agencies and hydroelectric companies about the importance of the conservation of the diversity of this location.

This new species most closely resembles Aphanoblastella chagresii Mendoza-Franco, Aguirre-Macedo and Vidal-Martínez, 2007 described from a congeneric fish host in Panama, but can be distinguished by the shape of the accessory piece and shape and size of the ventral and dorsal bars.
Philocorydoras longus sp. n. (Monogenea, Dactylogyridae) from the gills of Hoplosternum littorale (Siluriformes, Callichthyidae) in Southeastern Brazil and the reassignment of two species from the…
This new species belongs to the genus Philocorydoras mainly by possessing a curved cirrus accompanied by an accessory piece attached by a conspicuous filament.

This new species is mainly characterized by the morphology of the copulatory complex, a dorsal anchor with a well-developed superficial and inconspicuous deep root, and the shape of the accessory anchor sclerite with small spathulate termination.

The results suggest that fish parasite assemblages can provide suitable data for evaluating biotic homogenization caused by dams, and highlight that dams promote and facilitate the dispersal of organisms between localities, and therefore the spatial homogenizations of parasite communities.
