Demonstration of resistance to reinfection with Paramoeba sp. by Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L.
Histopathological effects of trypanorhynch metacestodes in the digestive gland of a novel host, Carcinus maenas (Decapoda).
An extensive parasite survey found the green crab Carcinus maenas to be infected in Australia by 2 species of larval trypanorhynch tapeworm, Trimacracanthus aetobatidis and Dollfusiella martini, and the gross pathology and histopathology of the parasites' new host is described.

In conclusion, larval trypanorhynch tapeworms offer some potential for control against C. maenas, but the many unknown trophic links required to complete the lifecycles of these parasites will make field application unpredictably difficult.
