Neorickettsial endosymbionts of the digenea: diversity, transmission and distribution.
Digeneans are endoparasitic flatworms with complex life cycles and distinct life stages that parasitize different host species. Some digenean species harbour bacterial endosymbionts known asExpand
Transmission rates of the bacterial endosymbiont, Neorickettsia risticii, during the asexual reproduction phase of its digenean host, Plagiorchis elegans, within naturally infected lymnaeid snails
BackgroundNeorickettsia are obligate intracellular bacterial endosymbionts of digenean parasites present in all lifestages of digeneans. Quantitative information on the transmission of neorickettsialExpand
Large Scale Screening of Digeneans for Neorickettsia Endosymbionts Using Real-Time PCR Reveals New Neorickettsia Genotypes, Host Associations and Geographic Records
Digeneans are endoparasitic flatworms with complex life cycles including one or two intermediate hosts (first of which is always a mollusk) and a vertebrate definitive host. Digeneans may harborExpand
Description and phylogenetic relationships of Rodentolepis gnoskei n. sp. (Cyclophyllidea: Hymenolepididae) from a shrew Suncus varilla minor in Malawi.
Rodentolepis gnoskei n. sp. is described based on specimens obtained from a lesser dwarf shrew Suncus varilla minor collected in the Nyika National Park, Malawi. The new species is one of theExpand
Small mammal community from an isolated, remnant cloud forest in Guatemala /
Results are reported for a mammal survey in a remnant, isolated, mixed-hardwood cloud forest (2,640 m elevation) in Cerro Cucurucho, Sacatepéquez, Guatemala. Removal trapping for five nights (4–9Expand
New genetic lineages, host associations and circulation pathways of Neorickettsia endosymbionts of digeneans
Neorickettsia is a genus of intracellular bacteria endosymbiotic in digeneans that may also invade cells of vertebrates and are known to cause diseases of wildlife and humans. Herein, we reportExpand
Description and Molecular Differentiation of a New Staphylocystoides (Cyclophyllidea: Hymenolepididae) from the Dusky Shrew Sorex monticolus in Southeast Alaska
Abstract:  Staphylocystoides gulyaevi n. sp. is described based on specimens obtained from the dusky shrew Sorex monticolus collected on Sukkwan Island, southeast Alaska. Staphylocystoides gulyaeviExpand
Alloglossidium demshini sp. nov. (Digenea: Macroderoididae) from leeches in Minnesota
Alloglossidium demshini sp. nov. is described based on specimens from leeches Haemopis grandis collected in northwestern Minnesota. The new species is morphologically closest to AlloglossidiumExpand
Two New Species of Staphylocystoides Yamaguti, 1959 (Cyclophyllidea: Hymenolepididae) from the Masked Shrew Sorex cinereus in North America
Abstract Two new species of Staphylocystoides are described from masked shrews Sorex cinereus. Staphylocystoides oligospinosus n. sp. was collected from the vicinity of Missoula, Montana, UnitedExpand
