Mapping the presence of Wolbachia pipientis on the phylogeny of filarial nematodes: evidence for symbiont loss during evolution.
Wolbachia pipientis is a bacterial endosymbiont associated with arthropods and filarial nematodes. In filarial nematodes, W. pipientis has been shown to play an important role in the biology of theExpand
Integrated taxonomy: traditional approach and DNA barcoding for the identification of filarioid worms and related parasites (Nematoda)
DNA barcoding is proposed as a reliable, consistent, and democratic tool for species discrimination in routine identification of parasitic nematodes and the coherence between DNA-based and morphological identification for almost all the species examined is very strong. Expand
Ecological analyses of the intestinal helminth communities of the wolf, Canis lupus, in Spain.
The analysis of interspecific relationships between infracommunities shows that negative associations are more numerous than positive associations, especially for core and secondary species. Expand
New Insights into the Evolution of Wolbachia Infections in Filarial Nematodes Inferred from a Large Range of Screened Species
The absence of Wolbachia in 63% of onchocercids, notably in the ancestral Oswaldofilariinae estimated 140 mya old, the diverse tissues or specimens distribution, and a recent lateral transfer in supergroup F WolbachIA modify the current view on the role and evolution of the endosymbiont and their hosts.

Shaking the Tree: Multi-locus Sequence Typing Usurps Current Onchocercid (Filarial Nematode) Phylogeny
The data support the current hypothesis that the Oswaldofilariinae, Waltonellinae and IcosieLLinae subfamilies separated early from the remaining onchocercids, and Setariinae was recovered as a well separated clade. Expand
New and Known Species of Litomosoides (Nematoda: Filarioidea): Important Adult and Larval Characters and Taxonomic Changes
This study confirms the close morphological resemblance between the species of Litomosoides from flying and terrestrial mammals and reinforces the hypothesis of host-switching in the evolution of this genus. Expand

Two new species of the genus Vexillata Travassos, 1937 parasitizing Heteromys anomalus of Venezuela are described, V. tejerai n. sp. and V. scorzai n. sp., both close to V. petteri Durette-Desset,Expand
Analysis of helminth communities of the pine marten, Martes martes, in Spain: Mainland and insular data
The present study analyses the helminth communities found in one hundred and two specimens of Martes martes from the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Archipelago to demonstrate the great importance of earthworms within the diet of pine martes and contribute to the knowledge of the pine marten’s food ethology.

Examination of type material of two species of Litomosoides (Filarioidea: Onchocercidae), parasites from bats; taxonomic consequences.
The morphology of the spicules shows that these species belong to the carinii group and L. hamletti is a valid species; L. penai is closely related to it and is considered to be a sub-species, L. guiterasi. Expand
Review of the genus Mansonella Faust, 1929 sensu lato (Nematoda: Onchocercidae), with descriptions of a new subgenus and a new subspecies.
The elevation of Sandnema to full genus rank comprising the two species S. sunci and S. digitatum (Chandler, 1929) n. Expand
