Reported Siphonostomatoid Copepods Parasitic on Marine Fishes of Southern Africa
Worldwide there are more than 12000 species of copepods known, of which 4224 are symbiotic. Most of the symbiotic species belong to two orders, Poecilostomatoida (1771 species) and SiphonostomatoidaExpand
Spatial distribution of Nemesis lamna Risso 1826 (Copepoda: Siphonostomatoida: Eudactylinidae) on the gills of white sharks Carcharodon carcharias off KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
The selection of a specific site of attachment by a copepod parasite is determined by a set of mostly unknown factors. The spatial distribution of Nemesis lamna on the gill filaments of white sharksExpand
Estimated Molecular Phylogenetic Relationships of Six Siphonostomatoid Families (Copepoda) Symbiotic on Elasmobranchs
Members of the Siphonostomatoida are associated with either invertebrates or vertebrates. Even though the interfamilial relationships within the Siphonostomatoida are unresolved, it has generallyExpand
BRANCHOTENTHES ROBINOVERSTREETI N. GEN. AND N. SP. (MONOGENEA: HEXABOTHRIIDAE) FROM GILL FILAMENTS OF THE BOWMOUTH GUITARFISH, RHINA ANCYLOSTOMA (RHYNCHOBATIDAE), IN THE INDIAN OCEAN
Branchotenthes robinoverstreeti n. gen. and n. sp. (Monogenea: Hexabothriidae) infects the gill filaments of the bowmouth guitarfish, Rhina ancylostoma Bloch and Schneider, 1801 (Rhynchobatidae) inExpand
New host and geographical records of siphonostomatoid copepods associated with elasmobranchs off the KwaZulu-Natal coast, South Africa.
The Siphonostomatoida (Copepoda) consists of 40 families comprised mainly of symbiotic members. Representatives of 12 families occur in symbiosis with elasmobranchs. Only eight families, 19 generaExpand
New Locality Records for Dermophthirius carcharhini (Monogenea: Microbothriidae) and Dermophthirius maccallumi and a List of Hosts and Localities for Species of Dermophthirius
Abstract We report Dermophthirius carcharhini (Monogenea: Microbothriidae) from the skin of a dusky shark, Carcharhinus obscurus (Carcharhinidae), in the southwest Indian Ocean off Umhlanga Rocks,Expand
Two new species of Pupulina van Beneden, 1892 (Copepoda: Siphonostomatoida: Caligidae) from mobulid rays off South Africa
The caligid genus Pupulina van Beneden, 1892 currently has three accepted species. Two new species, Pupulina cliffi n. sp. and P. merira n. sp., are described from Mobula kuhlii (Müller & Henle) andExpand
A checklist of the spiders (Arachnida, Araneae) of the Polokwane Nature Reserve, Limpopo Province, South Africa
As part of the South African National Survey of Arachnida (SANSA), spiders were collected from all the field layers in the Polokwane Nature Reserve (Limpopo Province, South Africa) over a period of aExpand
Nesippus orientalis Heller, 1868 (Pandaridae: Siphonostomatoida): descriptions of the adult, young and immature females, a first description of the male and aspects of their functional morphology
Nesippus orientalis Heller, 1868, a cosmopolitan species found in the mouth and on the gill-arches of a number of shark hosts, is distinguished from other species by the presence of dorsal plates onExpand
Cytochrome oxidase I sequences reveal possible cryptic diversity in the cosmopolitan symbiotic copepod Nesippus orientalis Heller, 1868 (Pandaridae: Siphonostomatoida) on elasmobranch hosts from the
Over the past decade, numerous molecular phylogenetic studies uncovered cryptic diversity within the Copepoda, yet very few investigations focused on symbiotic copepods. Here we report mitochondrialExpand
