Abstract Because we have new and detailed data on species in the genus, herein we redescribe both Monoecocestus macrobursatus and M. minor based on existing museum specimens. We also redescribe M. threlkeldi (Parra, 1952) using material collected in Bolivia. Based on the specimens representing M. thelkeldi, we affirm that Perutaenia Parra, 1953 should remain a junior synonym of Monoecocestus. 
New Species in the Genus Monoecocestus (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) From Neotropical Rodents (Caviidae and Sigmodontinae)
TLDR
The discussion includes commentary about uterine development, an important taxonomic character of the family, the vaginal dilation in immature segments, and the implication of host usage to the evolutionary history and biogeography of species in this genus.
New record of anoplocephalid eggs (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) collected from rodent coprolites from archaeological and paleontological sites of Patagonia, Argentina.
TLDR
Results of paleoparasitological examination of rodent coprolites collected from archaeological and paleontological sites from Patagonia, Argentina are present, finding eggs with morphological features, attributed to an anoplocephalid cestode from faecal material from patagonic rodents.
Parasites in micromammal fecal pellets throughout the Late Holocene ("Cueva Peligro" paleontological site, Patagonia, Argentina).
TLDR
The obtained results contribute to the knowledge of parasite assemblages associated to native South American sigmodontine rodents and the zoonoses present in the area throughout the lasts 1200 years.

Parasites Circulating in Wild Synanthropic Capybaras (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris): A One Health Approach
TLDR
The present findings collectively constitute baseline data for future monitoring of wildlife-derived anthropozoonotic parasites and call for future research on the health and the ecological impact of this largest semiaquatic rodent closely linked to humans, domestic and wild animals.
Sustained impact of holistic specimens for mammalogy and parasitology in South America: Sydney Anderson’s legacy
Sydney Anderson and the "Mammalian Diversity in Bolivia" (MDB) project (1984-1993) established a highly productive model for integrated specimen-based field expeditions.  We assess the extended

TLDR
A total of sixty-two specimens of the new anoplocephalid was fixed in 10% formalin, and five specimens were sectioned in series; two transversely, two longitudinally, and one sagittally.
Helminths of Small Mammals (Chiroptera, Insectivora, Lagomorpha) from Mongolia with a Description of a New Species of Schizorchis (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae)
TLDR
Two species of bats (Vespertilio murinus and Eptesicus gobiensis) were infected with a single species of trematode (Plagiorchis vespertilionis), which represents a new record for the country.
Revision of the Progamotaenia zschokkei (Janicki, 1905) complex (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae), with the description of six new species
TLDR
Five new species are differentiated by a combination of characters: prominence of scolex lobes, number of lobes in the fimbriated velum, testis number and distribution, size of the cirrus-sac, morphology of the uterus and presence or absence of a pyriform apparatus in eggs from terminal segments.
Morphological Characterisation of Andrya Railliet, 1893, Neandrya n. g. and Paranoplocephala Lühe, 1910 (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) in Rodents and Lagomorphs
TLDR
The present analysis and the existing phylogenetic data suggest that the structure and complexity of the early uterus are not, as previously assumed, the main phylogenetic or systematic determinants for anoplocephaline cestodes.
Endoparasites of Fat-Tailed Mouse Opossums (Thylamys: Didelphidae) from Northwestern Argentina and Southern Bolivia, with the Description of a New Species of Tapeworm
TLDR
A new species of tapeworm is characterized by a calyciform scolex, relatively few testes, and a long cirrus sac; it occurs in fat-tailed mouse opossums at localities above 4,000 m, which makes it different from 6 species known to occur in marsupials from the New World, and from other species occurring in armadillos and bats.
A New Rat Tapeworm, Schizotaenia sigmodontis, from North America
During the summer of 1920, while the writers were engaged in an examination of rats of various kinds for evidence of plague infection, a considerable number of specimens of the East Texas cotton rat,
Studies on the Cestode Family, Anoplocephalidae
TLDR
This book presents a cladistic reconstruction of the woolly mammoth fromageries of Europe and its distribution in the Middle East and North America over the course of the 19th Century and into the 20th Century.
What is Paranoplocephala macrocephala (Douthitt, 1915) (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae)?
TLDR
The present analysis could not provide conclusive evidence against their conspecificity, but the morphological variability and wide host and geographical distribution of P. macrocephala-like cestodes in North American voles of the genus Microtus, and the patterns of host-specificity within Paranoplocephales suggest that this complex probably includes several species.
