A checklist of records of aspidogastrean trematodes (Aspidogastrea) is provided on the basis of a comprehensive survey of the literature since 1826, when the first aspidogastrean species was reported, until December 2014. We list 61 species representing 13 genera within 4 families and 2 orders of aspidogastreans associated with 298 species of invertebrate and vertebrate hosts. The majority of records include bivalves (44% of the total number of host-parasite associations), whereas records from… 

New Record of Aspidogaster ijimai Kawamura, 1913 (Trematoda: Aspidogastridae) from Cyprinus carpio in Korea

A new aspidogastrid is added among the Korean trematode fauna by the present study, and was closely identical with those of Aspidogaster ijimai previously described.

Cotylogaster basiri Siddiqi & Cable, 1960 (Aspidobothrea: Aspidogastridae) in Pogonias cromis (Linnaeus, 1766) (Perciformes: Sciaenidae): first report from Brazil.

During necropsies of marine fish obtained from professional fisherman in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, specimens of Cotylogaster basiri were found in the intestine and rectum of P. cromis, the first report of C. basiri in this fish.

Cotylogaster basiri Siddiqi & Cable , 1960 ( Aspidobothrea : Aspidogastridae ) in Pogonias cromis ( Linnaeus , 1766 ) ( Perciformes : Sciaenidae ) : first report from Brazil

During necropsies of marine fish obtained from professional fisherman in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, specimens of Cotylogaster basiri were found in the intestine and rectum of P. cromis, the first report of C. basiri in this fish.

Redescription and supplementary molecular characteristics of Aspidogaster ijimai Kawamura, 1915 (Trematoda, Aspidogastrea, Aspidogastridae), a parasite of Cyprinus carpio Linnaeus, 1758 s. lato (Actinopterygii) and freshwater bivalves in East Asia

The authors' 28S rDNA results based on maximum likelihood (ML) and Bayesian (BI) phylogenetic analyses indicated well-supported monophyly of the Aspidogaster conchicola+A.

Redescription of Aspidogaster limacoides Diesing, 1834 (Aspidogastrea: Aspidogastridae) from freshwater fishes of northern Germany

Phylogenetic analysis showed that the present specimens clustered in the same clade with A. limacoides sensu stricto, forming a distinct group to the exclusion of congeners, suggesting that SEM is a useful and promising tool in differentiating Aspidogaster species.

Annotated and Updated Checklist of Land and Freshwater Molluscs from Asturias (Northern Spain) with Emphasis on Parasite Transmitters and Exotic Species

Land and freshwater molluscs are the most abundant non-arthropod invertebrates from inland habitats worldwide, playing important ecological roles and some being important pests in agriculture.

Phylogenetic relationships among European and Asian representatives of the genus Aspidogaster Baer, 1827 (Trematoda: Aspidogastrea) inferred from molecular data

The phylogenetic relationships of European and Far Eastern representatives of the genus Aspidogaster Baer were analysed, suggesting a long-term separate existence of A. conchicola in the Russian Far East.

Parasites of cartilaginous fishes (Chondrichthyes) in South Africa - a neglected field of marine science.

This review summarises information on all groups of parasites of chondrichthyan hosts and demonstrates the current knowledge of chONDRichthyan parasites in South Africa.



Maintenance of a trematode, Aspidogaster conchicola, outside the body of its natural host.

The versatility expressed by members of the subclass ASPIDOGASTREA in their host relationships suggests the possibility that physiological adjustment between the parasite and its host is not so rigorously fixed as it is among many trematodes.

Aspidogaster conchicola in mollusks of the Columbia River system with comments on the host's pathological response.

Infections of Aspidogaster conchicola (Aspidogastridae) are reported in three species of freshwater mussels (all Unionidae) in the Columbia River and one of its tributaries, the Yakima River, near

Anatomopathological study of parrot pufferfish Colomesus psittacus parasitized by the aspidogastrean Rohdella sp.

The anatomopathological and ultrastructural aspects of the parasitism of the intestine of C. psittacus by Rohdella sp.

Some helminth parasites of Fishes of Bermuda and an account of the attachment organ of Alcicornis carangis MacCallum, 1917 (Digenea: Bucephalidae)

The functional morphology of the apical disk, tentacles and rhynchus of Alcicornis carangis is described and it is found that the tentacles are invaginable and concerned with attachment.

Notes on the Life History of Aspidogaster conchicola Baer, 1826 (Trematoda; Aspidogastridae)

Infection of a new host with embryonated eggs of Aspidogaster conchicola gave positive results and a possible mode of infection via the nephridiopore is suggested.

Phylogenetic systematic inference in the Aspidogastrea (Platyhelminthes, Trematode) based on the 18s rRNA sequence

The phylogenetic relationships within the Aspidogastrea are examined, showing that the number of longitudinal rows of alveoli is the parallel evolution character, and the subfamilial classification of the As pidogastridae needs to be revised by examining more genera and species of aspidogasts.

Notes on New Aspidogastrid Species, with a Consideration of the Phylogeny of the Group

The genus Stichocotyle has been removed from the family Aspidogastridae Poche, 1907, and placed in a new family, Stichopylidae, and evidence is provided that aspidogASTrid worms are referable neither to the Monogenea nor the Digenea, but belong to an intermediate subclass group, Aspidogsastrea.

A New Aspidogastrid Trematode, Cotylogasteroides barrowi sp. n., from Freshwater Mussels of Ohio

A new aspidogastrid trematode species, Cotylogasteroides barrowi, is described from the intestinal tract of the freshwater mussels Lampsilis siliquoidea and L. ventricosa, clearly distinguished from C. occidentalis by a smaller number of alveoli on the ventral holdfast organ.

Aspidogaster conchicola from freshwater gastropods in the United States.

It is found that A. conchicola frequently parasitizes the snails Viviparus malleatus and V. japonicus in the Boston area, the first report of this trematode from Massachusetts and also the first time that gastropods have been implicated as hosts in North America.

Rohdella amazonica n. sp. (Aspidogastrea: Aspidogastridae) from the Amazoninan banded puffer fish Colomesus psittacus (Bloch & Schneider, 1801)

The present work describes the third species of the genus Rohdella, thereby adding new morphological and molecular data regarding Aspidogastridae.
