A new species of tetraphyllidean cestode in the genus Trilocularia is described from an undescribed shark species, Squalus cf. mitsukurii, off the coast of South Africa. Trilocularia eberti sp. n. is the second known member of its genus, and like its congener, T. gracilis (Olsson, 1866-1867) Olsson, 1869, is extremely hyperapolytic, dropping proglottids from its strobila while they are still very immature. Characteristic of the genus, it possesses a distinctive scolex with triloculated…

A New Species of Pentaloculum (Cestoda: “Tetraphyllidea”) from the Taiwan Saddled Carpetshark, Cirrhoscyllium formosanum (Orectolobiformes: Parascylliidae)
ABSTRACT Collection of cestodes from the Taiwan saddled carpetshark, Cirrhoscyllium formosanum, for the first time led to the discovery of Pentaloculum hoi n. sp. This species provided important
An enigmatic new tapeworm, Litobothrium aenigmaticum, sp. nov. (Platyhelminthes: Cestoda: Litobothriidea), from the pelagic thresher shark with comments on development of known Litobothrium species
Developmental data show typical litobothriideans bear basic elements of their adult scolex upon entering the definitive host, undermining the notion that the new cestode represents a distinct litobothsriidean life cycle stage, and justify establishment of Litobothrium aenigmaticum.
A New Genus of Tapeworm (Cestoda: Onchoproteocephalidea) from Sawfish (Elasmobranchii: Pristidae)
Abstract Collections from the dwarf sawfish, Pristis clavata, near Darwin, Australia, in 1997 led to the discovery of the new onchoproteocephalidean genus Matticestus n. gen.—a taxon that has been
The Dismantling of Calliobothrium (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) With Erection of Symcallio n. gen. and Description of Two New Species
This paper aims to resolve the dual composition of the triakid shark–hosted tetraphyllidean genus Calliobothrium—an issue that has been recognized for over a decade, and confirmed the reciprocal monophyly of the 2 clades, supporting establishment of a new genus.
Squalus bassi sp. nov., a new long-snouted spurdog (Chondrichthyes: Squaliformes: Squalidae) from the Agulhas Bank.
The long-snouted African spurdog Squalus bassi sp. nov. is described based on material collected from the outer shelf and upper continental slope off South Africa and Mozambique. Squalus bassi shares
A New Species of Serendip (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea: Serendipeidae) in Rhinoptera steindachneri (Chondrichthyes: Myliobatidae) from the Pacific Coast of Mexico
ABSTRACT:  A species of Serendip Brooks and Barriga, 1995, Serendip danbrooksi n. sp., is described from Mexico as a parasite of Rhinoptera steindachneri Evermann and Jenkins, 1891. The new species
Diversity, phylogenetic relationships and host associations of Calliobothrium and Symcallio (Cestoda : ‘Tetraphyllidea’) parasitising triakid sharks
Molecular phylogenetic analyses based on 28S rDNA data for four of the seven known species of Calliobothrium and five of the 11known species of Symcallio supported the mutual monophyly of the two genera, which is readily distinguished based on whether they exhibit proglottid laciniations, and supports subclades of Sym callio with and without hook accessory pieces.
Morphological variation in the hyperapolytic lecanicephalidean species Anteropora japonica (Yamaguti, 1934) (Eucestoda).
In November of 2013, a specimen of Japanese sleeper ray, Narke japonica (Temminck et Schlegel), caught off Nanfang-ao, Taiwan was found to be parasitised by the cestode Anteropora japonica (Yamaguti,
New species of Guidus Ivanov, 2006 (Cestoda: Phyllobothriidea) from Bathyraja magellanica (Philippi) from the Patagonian Continental Shelf of Argentina.
The diagnosis of Guidus is revised to include several features exhibited by the new species, which reinforces the tight association between rays in the genera Guidus and Bathyraja.


Gilquiniid cestodes (Trypanorhyncha) from elasmobranch fishes off New Caledonia with descriptions of two new genera and a new species
AbstractCestodes were collected from deep-sea sharks caught off New Caledonia, South Pacific. Vittirhynchus squali n. g., n. sp. (Trypanorhyncha: Gilquiniidae) is described from the spiral valve of
An Extremely Hyperapolytic Acanthobothrium Species (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) from the Japanese Wobbegong, Orectolobus japonicus (Elasmobranchii: Orectolobiformes) in Taiwan
It appears that the reproductive strategy of extremely hyperapolytic tetraphyllidean species is distinct from that seen in the more traditional hyperapoletic species in which adult worms bear terminal proglottids containing all elements of both the male and female reproductive systems.
Phyllobothrium squali Yamaguti, 1952 (Tetraphyllidea, Phyllobothriidae): redescription and first record in the Black Sea
Phyllobothrium squali Yamaguti, 1952 is redescribed and illustrated on the basis of the holotype from Squalus acanthias from Japanese waters and specimens from the same host off the Bulgarian Black
A SEM Study of the Cestodes Trilocularia acanthiaevulgaris, Phyllobothrium squMi and Gilquinia squMi from the Spiny Dogfish
The surface topography of three cestode parasites from the gut of Squalus acanthias is described with the aid of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and the possibilities of these microtopographical features being used in a sensory and/or attachment role are considered.

It is found that Squalus suckleyi is resurrected and a neotype for this endemic North Pacific Squalus species is designated, based on the following morphological and meristic characteristics.
