Record of Some Digeneans, Infecting Freshwater Fishes, Snails, and Amphibians in India, Using 28S Ribosomal DNA Marker
The present results show that H. barabankiensis represents distinct entities from a molecular and morphological point of views, which leads to the description of a new species.
A new species of an interesting amphistome Pseudodiplodiscoides Murty, 1970 in Bellamya bengalensis Lamarck, 1882 from water bodies near district Barabanki, U.P.
A new species of an interesting trematode genus Pseudodiplodiscoides is described from the gut of the snail Bellamya bengalensis Lamarck, collected from the fresh water bodies near district Barabanki, U.P.
Validation of Digenetic Trematodes, Using Molecular Markers, a Case Study of Indian Species of Mesocoelium Odhner, 1911
Morphological variations in Mesocoelium sociale Odhner, 1911, obtained from Duttaphrynus melanostictus Schneider, 1799 from a water body near Barabanki have been observed and nucleotide composition analysis, evolutionary divergence and multiple sequence alignment are done.
Rhythmicity in the emergence of Cercaria tondoni sp., a gymnocephalus cercaria from Lymnea stagnalis (Linnaeus, 1758)
An attempt has been made to record cercarial emergence throughout the year, and it was observed that the months of April, May, and June are those where frequency of emergence was highest.
Diel rhythmicity of an echinostome cercaria (Cercaria beaveri Pandey & Agrawal, 1977)
The rhythmic pattern of echinostome cercariae, infecting Lymnea stagnalis Linnaeus, 1758 in a freshwater body located near Barabanki shows maximum yield in summer months (April, May and June) and low yeild in February and July and probably in an effort to approach their intermediate hosts.
First record of metacercaria of a rare reptilian trematode Kaurma Chatterji , 1936 from a gastropod Pila globosa Swainson , near district Barabanki
During course of present investigations on the trematodes of snails of district Barabanki, several specimens of Pila globosa Swainson examined, the gut of only four was found infected with the metacercarial stage of trematode, revealing them to be of the genus Kaurma Chatterji, 1936 as they bear all the characters of the adult, except the eggs.
