The Nematode Genus Rhabdias (Nematoda: Rhabdiasidae) from Amphibians and Reptiles of the Nearctic
Data is summarized from the literature, study of new material, and examination of museum specimens on the representatives of the nematode family Rhabdiasidae in the Nearctic, and the applicability of some morphological characters for differentiation of R Habdias species is discussed.
Shaking the Tree: Multi-locus Sequence Typing Usurps Current Onchocercid (Filarial Nematode) Phylogeny
The data support the current hypothesis that the Oswaldofilariinae, Waltonellinae and IcosieLLinae subfamilies separated early from the remaining onchocercids, and Setariinae was recovered as a well separated clade.
TWO NEW SPECIES OF RHABDIAS (NEMATODA: RHABDIASIDAE) FROM THE MARINE TOAD, BUFO MARINUS (L.) (LISSAMPHIBIA: ANURA: BUFONIDAE), IN CENTRAL AMERICA
Two new Rhabdias species are described from the lungs of the cane toad Bufo marinus from Costa Rica and Nicaragua and are differentiated from R. sphaerocephala based on head-end morphology and sequences of nuclear rDNA.
A NEW SPECIES OF RHABDIAS FROM LUNGS OF THE WOOD FROG, RANA SYLVATICA, IN NORTH AMERICA: THE LAST SIBLING OF RHABDIAS RANAE ?
Molecular analysis demonstrates clear differences between Rhabdias from Ra.
Rhabdias kongmongthaensis sp. n. (Nematoda: Rhabdiasidae) from Polypedates leucomystax (Amphibia: Anura: Rhacophoridae) in Thailand.
The new species is similar to two North-American species, Rhabdias ranae and R. americanus, by presence of two lateral pseudolabia, each with two inner submedian protuberances, but differs from both by relative length and shape of the tail and by its distribution and host specificity.

Helminths of the sand lizard, Lacerta agilis (Reptilia, Lacertidae), in the Palaearctic: faunal diversity and spatial patterns of variation in the composition and structure of component communities
Sand lizards of Lacerta agilis was parasitized by a much higher proportion of lizard specialists in the ‘typical' habitats of the meadow steppeland zone as opposed to those located in ‘marginal' habitats in the grassland/forest transition zone, where helminths were shared to a greater extent with amphibian hosts.
Molecular insight into systematics, host associations, life cycles and geographic distribution of the nematode family Rhabdiasidae.
EXPERIMENTAL INFECTION OF MOSQUITOES WITH DIROFILARIA REPENS (NEMATODA, FILARIOIDEA) LARVAE
Larval stages of the nematode successfully developed in all three vector species at room temperature 18–29°C and vector efficiency index was calculated for each mosquito species.
