First report on nematode parasite infection in the yellowbar angelfish Pomacanthus maculosus (Perciformes: Pomacanthidae) from the Iraqi coral reef, with description of a new species of Cucullanus
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses based on 18S, ITS and cox1 sequences were constructed, respectively, to assess the phylogenetic relationships between the new species and the other cucullanids, and the monophyly of Cucullanus, as well as some its related genus-level taxa. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny and Dating Reveal a Terrestrial Origin in the Early Carboniferous for Ascaridoid Nematodes
TLDR
The divergence dates and ancestral host types indicated by the study suggest that members of the Ascaridoidea first parasitized terrestrial tetrapods, and subsequently, extended their host range to elasmobranchs and teleosts. Expand
Morphological variability, ultrastructure and molecular characterisation of Hysterothylacium reliquens (Norris & Overstreet, 1975) (Nematoda: Raphidascarididae) from the oriental sole Brachirus
TLDR
The results of molecular analysis strongly supported that the broad ranges of morphological variability in the above-mentioned respects in the newly collected specimens of H. reliquens, should be considered as intraspecific variation and the nematode material collected from B. orientalis in the Arabian Gulf represented a single species.

Ascaridoid parasites infecting in the frequently consumed marine fishes in the coastal area of China: A preliminary investigation.
TLDR
The low level of infection and the species composition of ascaridoid nematodes seem to indicate the presence of low risk of human anisakidosis when local population consumed these marine fishes examined herein. Expand
Ultrastructure of Ascaridia galli (Schrank, 1788) (Nematoda: Ascaridida) from the endangered green peafowl Pavo muticus Linnaeus (Galliformes: Phasianidae)
TLDR
The present morphological and morphometric data complement previous descriptions and enable this species more precisely to be recognized more precisely. Expand
Morphological study of Ophidascaris excavata Hsü & Hoeppli, 1931 (Ascaridida: Ascarididae) from Gloydius brevicaudus (Stejneger) (Reptilia: Viperidae)
TLDR
The results revealed several important, but previously unreported, morphological features, including the presence of one pair of small, finger-like prolongations on each lip, narrow cervical alae beginning well posterior to the base of the ventrolateral lips and the second pair of postcloacal ventro-lateral papillae being double. Expand
Morphological and complete mitogenomic characterisation of the acanthocephalan Polymorphus minutus infecting the duck Anas platyrhynchos.
TLDR
The resulting topology recovers P. minutus as sister to Southwellina hispida (Van Cleave, 1925), and the two taxa form a sister clade to Centrorhynchus aluconis (Müller, 1780), which are all species in the Palaeacanthocephala, thus supporting the monophyly of this class. Expand
MORPHOLOGY OF ADULTS AND IMMATURES OF THE ACANTHOCEPHALAN, POMPHORHYNCHUS FUHAIENSIS YUE, 1998 (ACANTHOCEPHALA: POMPHORHYNCHIDAE) FROM CYPRINID FISH IN NORTHWEST CHINA.
Adult specimens of Pomphorhynchus fuhaiensis were identified from common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) in Ulungur Lake of northwest China, and acanthors, acanthellae, cystacanths dissected from GammarusExpand
