Metacercariae of Clinostomum Leidy, 1856 are frequently encountered in freshwater fish. In 2015, a provisional species of Clinostomum in People’s Republic of China (PRC) was distinguished from C. complanatum (Rudolphi, 1819) in Europe based on divergent cytochrome c oxidase I (CO1). However, in subsequent studies in East Asia, the same divergent CO1 genotype was identified as C. complanatum. These matching sequences suggest that either the provisional East Asian species was incorrectly… Expand
A new species of Clinostomum Leidy, 1856 based on molecular and morphological analysis of metacercariae from African siluriform fishes
In the Afrotropic region, the genus Clinostomum is represented by four accepted and four unnamed species distinguished using molecular data. Here, we describe one of the four unnamed species asExpand
Characterization of Clinostomum sp. (Trematoda: Clinostomidae) infecting cormorants in south-eastern Australia.
The ITS sequences obtained from the specimens in the present study were most similar to those belonging to C. phalacrocoracis (never reported in Australia), which suggests they are the same as the Clinostomum sp. Expand
Pathology associated with three new Clinostomum metacercariae from Argentina with morphological and DNA barcode identification.
The molecular and morphological approach supports the presence of three new lineages of clinostomid metacercariae in Argentina, which could lead to the discovery of a high number of lineages or species of Clinostomum from South America. Expand
A New Host Record for Clinostomum cf. marginatum (Trematoda: Digenea: Clinostomidae) from the Endemic Salado Salamander, Eurycea chisholmensis (Caudata: Plethodontidae), from the Edwards Plateau, Texas, U.S.A.
ABSTRACT: Macroscopic examination of 622 Salado salamanders, Eurycea chisholmensis Chippindale, Price, Wiens and Hillis, 2000, collected between June 2018 and July 2020 from 3 springs in WilliamsonExpand
Alternative Development Strategies of Clinostomum chabaudi (Digenea) Metacercariae in Frog Hosts (Hyperolius spp.)
It is hypothesize that the presence of alternative development modes is an adaptation of C. chabaudi to cope with resource limitation within host-produced cysts. Expand
Aquatic Organisms Research with DNA Barcodes
Since their inception, DNA barcodes have become a powerful tool for understanding the biodiversity and biology of aquatic species, with multiple applications in diverse fields such as food security,Expand


A large‐scale molecular survey of Clinostomum (Digenea, Clinostomidae)
Phylogenetic analysis suggests a deep division between clades of Clinostomum inhabiting the New World and Old World, which parallels the distribution of their principal definitive hosts, the Ardeidae. Expand
Morphological and Molecular Differentiation of Clinostomum complanatum and Clinostomum marginatum (Digenea: Clinostomidae) Metacercariae and Adults
Recent data confirm the validity of the junior species, C. marginatum, by ∼1% differences in its 18S rDNA sequences and identified basic morphometrics in metacercariae that may be useful for discriminating the species. Expand
Occurrence and molecular characterization of Clinostomum complanatum (Trematoda: Clinostomidae) in freshwater fishes caught from Turkey
First combined morphologic and molecular data on C. complanatum infecting Turkish freshwater fishes is provided and reveals three and nine polymorphic sites leading to detection of four and five haplotypes within the related gene regions, respectively. Expand
The discovery of Clinostomum complanatum metacercariae in farmed Chinese sucker, Myxocyprinus asiaticus
Abstract Yellow grub disease is a common fish parasitosis caused by Clinostomum species. Clinostomum complanatum is a cosmopolitan trematode with a complex life-cycle and low host specificity. Due toExpand
Metacercariae of Clinostomum complanatum (Trematoda: Digenea) in European newts Triturus carnifex and Lissotriton vulgaris (Caudata: Salamandridae)
This is the first record of C. complanatum in European newts and, more generally, in amphibians in Europe, and sequences of a mitochondrial gene, cytochrome c oxidase I, and the ribosomal markers, internal transcribed spacers are identified. Expand
Risk of introduction of Clinostomum complanatum (Digenea: Clinostomidae) to Sicily through use of Cobitis bilineata (Canestrini, 1865) as live baits
C. bilineata is reported as a new intermediate host of C. complanatum metacercariae originating from northern Italy and the risk of the introduction of the parasitosis also in other new areas, such as Sicily, using live baits is discussed. Expand
A Combined Morphometric and Molecular Approach to Identifying Metacercariae of Euclinostomum heterostomum (Digenea: Clinostomidae)
The isolates of Euclinostomum obtained in this study form a single, monophyletic group separate from recently published data from Euclinstomum sp. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome analysis of Clinostomum complanatum and its comparison with selected digeneans
The complete mtDNA sequence of C. complanatum will increase the knowledge of mitochondrial genomics data and will also provide an important resource for studies of inter- and intra-species variation of flukes belonging to Clinostomidae. Expand
First description of the adult stage of Clinostomumcutaneum Paperna, 1964 (Digenea: Clinostomidae) from grey herons Ardea cinerea L. and a redescription of the metacercaria from the Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus niloticus (L.) in Kenya
Sequencing the rRNA confirmed the morphological similarity between adults from the grey heron and the metacercarial stage from tilapia, and a level of genetic similarity with the other previously sequenced Clinostomum spp. Expand
Clinostomum complanatum and Clinostomum marginatum (Rudolphi, 1819) (Digenea: Clinostomidae) Are Separate Species Based on Differences in Ribosomal DNA
A genetic assay was developed to differentiate between the great blue heron Ardea herodias and the little egret Egretta garzetta and to diagnose all life-history stages of trematodes in their diverse hosts. Expand
