Phylogenetic relationships of the Gorgoderidae (Platyhelminthes: Trematoda), including the proposal of a new subfamily (Degeneriinae n. subfam.)
Phylogenetic analyses of a range of gorgoderid trematodes based on ITS2 and partial 28S rDNA data lead us to propose the Degeneriinae n. subfam. for the genus Degeneria in recognition of its…
Molecular approaches to trematode systematics: ‘best practice’ and implications for future study
Advice is provided regarding the ‘best molecular practice’ for trematode taxonomy and systematic studies, in an attempt to help unify the field and provide a solid foundation to underpin future work.
Phylogenetic analysis of Methanobrevibacter isolated from feces of humans and other animals
The relationship of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity and genomic DNA reassociation of Methanobrevibacter and other methanogenic archaea indicated that genomicDNA reassociation studies are necessary to establish that two methanogen organisms belong to the same species.

Two new cryptogonimid genera (Digenea, Cryptogonimidae) from Lutjanus bohar (Perciformes, Lutjanidae): analyses of ribosomal DNA reveals wide geographic distribution and presence of cryptic species
Three new species of Cryptogonimidae belonging to two new genera are described from the large piscivorous reef fish Lutjanus bohar recovered from Heron and Lizard Islands off the Great Barrier Reef and Rasdhoo Atoll, Maldives, to explore the geographic distribution and integrity of the putative species recovered from these widespread localities.
Unicapsula species (Myxosporea: Trilosporidae) of Australian marine fishes, including the description of Unicapsula andersenae n. sp. in five teleost families off Queensland, Australia
A survey of the myxosporean fauna of Australian marine fishes revealed the presence of three previously unreported species of Unicapsula from sites off Southeast Queensland, off Lizard Island on the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, and from Jurien Bay in Western Australia.
Eight new species of Siphoderina Manter, 1934 (Digenea, Cryptogonimidae) infecting Lutjanidae and Haemulidae (Perciformes) off Australia
Nine species, eight of which are new, of cryptogonimids belonging to Siphoderina Manter, 1934 are reported from the intestine and pyloric caeca of five species of Lutjanidae and six species of Haemulidae are recovered from Heron and Lizard Islands off the Great Barrier Reef, Moreton Bay and Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia.
