Suppression of the tapeworm order Pseudophyllidea (Platyhelminthes: Eucestoda) and the proposal of two new orders, Bothriocephalidea and Diphyllobothriidea.
The Bothriocephalidea and Diphyllobothriidea are proposed, an order of tapeworms composed of two phylogenetically unrelated groups that are the sister-group to the 'acetabulate' or 'tetrafossate' cestodes, which are generally regarded as having derived characters.

Control of many important parasitic diseases is still far from being satisfactory and further research is needed, but studies on immunity in parasitic infections, use of molecular technology in diagnostics and development of new vaccines against the most pathogenic parasites are very promising.
Update on the Human Broad Tapeworm (Genus Diphyllobothrium), Including Clinical Relevance
Diphyllobothrium is the most important fish-borne zoonosis caused by a cestode parasite, and its definitive hosts include piscivorous birds and mammals, which represent a significant zoonotic reservoir.
Fish pathogens near the Arctic Circle: molecular, morphological and ecological evidence for unexpected diversity of Diplostomum (Digenea: Diplostomidae) in Iceland.
Host-parasite systems at high latitudes are promising model systems for detecting and predicting the impact of accelerated environmental change. A major challenge is the lack of baselines for the
A first insight into the barcodes for African diplostomids (Digenea: Diplostomidae): brain parasites in Clarias gariepinus (Siluriformes: Clariidae).
This study provides molecular-based evidence for the existence of three distinct brain-infecting species co-occurring in natural populations of C. gariepinus, and is the first application of a DNA-based approach to diplostomid diversity in the African continent by generating a database linking sequences for the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (cox1) barcode region and ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 rRNA gene cluster.
Trematodes of the family Heterophyidae (Digenea) in Mexico: a review of species and new host and geographical records
Metacercariae of heterophyid trematodes are among the most frequent and abundant parasites offish in Mexico, in particular in its southeastern part.
The catholic taste of broad tapeworms - multiple routes to human infection.
The broad host spectrum and the frequency with which switching between major host groups appears to have occurred, may hold the answer as to why accidental human infection occurred multiple times across the phylogeny of diphyllobothriideans.
Larvae of gryporhynchid cestodes (Cyclophyllidea) from fish: a review.
Although only a few cases of pathogenic influence of larvae on fish hosts have been reported, the veterinary importance of gryporhynchids remains to be assessed on the basis of more detailed studies.
Spermatozoa of tapeworms (Platyhelminthes, Eucestoda): advances in ultrastructural and phylogenetic studies
The main gaps in the current knowledge of spermatological characters are mapped and topics for future research are outlined, with special emphasis on those characters that might provide additional information about the evolution of tapeworms and their spermatozoa.
Atlas of the helminth parasites of cichlid fish of Mexico.
An Atlas of the Helminth Parasites of Cichlid Fish of Mexico and its Discoverers is published.
