The Monocotylidae Taschenberg, 1879 is revised based on a cladistic analysis of relationships between the constituent species and genera. The monophyly of the family is supported by three apomorphic character states: division of the haptor into one central and eight peripheral loculi; the ovary looping the right intestinal caecum; and tetrahedral eggs. The family is divided into six subfamilies: Calicotylinae Monticelli, 1903 (comprising Calicotyle Diesing, 1850, Dictyocotyle Nybelin, 1941… 
A revision of the Calicotylinae Monticelli, 1903(Monogenea: Monocotylidae)
TLDR
TheCalicotylinae, which comprises the genera Calicotyle and Dictyocotyle, is revised based on supplementary material as well as deposited type-material and the need for information regarding the development of individuals from juvenile to adult are discussed.
The phylogenetic position of the Loimoidae Price, 1936 (Monogenoidea: Monocotylidea) based on analyses of partial rDNA sequences and morphological data.
TLDR
Although rDNA sequence data support the rejection of the Loimoidae and incorporating its species into the Monocotylidae, this action was not recommended pending a full phylogenetic analysis of morphological data.
Monogenean Parasites of some Elasmobranchs (Chondrichthyes) from the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico
TLDR
Hypotheses of biogeographical and coevolutionary patterns concerning monogeneans of elasmobranchs are premature, but B. posterocolpa seems to be strictly host specific, whereas D. floridana and D. octodiscus display a much lower level of host fidelity at lower host taxonomic levels.
Revision of Decacotylinae Chisholm, Wheeler & Beverley Burton, 1995 (Monogenea: Monocotylidae), including the synonymy of Papillicotyle Young, 1967 with Decacotyle Young, 1967 and a description of a new species from Australia
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Papillicotyle Young, 1967, distinguished previously from Decacotyle lymmae Young,1967 in part by the presence of unsclerotised accessory structures on the dorsal surface of the haptor, is synonymous with DecacOTyle.
Monocotylids (Monogenoidea) infecting elasmobranchs in Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia, with descriptions of Calicotyle cutmorei n. sp. (Calicotylinae) and Dendromonocotyle raiae n. sp. (Monocotylinae).
TLDR
Eighteen monocotylid species were collected from elasmobranchs during surveys of the parasites of fishes of Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia, and six new faunal records are reported, including a new host record for T. australensis, and A. rhynchobatis.
The capsalidae (Monogenea: Monopisthocotylea): a review of diversity, classification and phylogeny with a note about species complexes.
TLDR
A suggestion that Neobenedenia melleni, a pathogenic species atypical due to its broad host-specificity, may be a complex of species is supported from genetic evidence and has implications for fish health.
Monocotylids (Monogenea: Monopisthocotylea) from Aetobatus cf. narinari off New Caledonia, with a description of Decacotyle elpora n. sp.
Four species of monocotylid monogeneans were found on a spotted eagle ray Aetobatus cf. narinari caught off Nouméa, New Caledonia, South Pacific. The host is illustrated for future possible
Phylogeny and taxonomy of Potamotrygonocotyle Mayes, Brooks & Thorson, 1981 (Monogenoidea: Monocotylidae) with a description of four new species
TLDR
It is found that hypotheses of species delimitation depend greatly on efforts to sample specimens throughout its distributional range and that host specificity within this genus varies dramatically among lineages.
Resurrection of Mycteronastes (Monogenoidea: Monocotylidae), with Description of Mycteronastes caalusi n. sp. from Olfactory Sacs of the Smalltooth Sawfish, Pristis pectinata (Pristiformes: Pristidae), in the Gulf of Mexico off Florida
TLDR
The present study is the first report of a monocotylid from the olfactory sacs of P. pectinata and the first record of a species of Mycteronastes from the Gulf of Mexico.
Merizocotyle euzeti sp. n. (Monogenea: Monocotylidae) from the nasal tissue of three deep sea skates (Rajidae) in the southwestern Atlantic Ocean.
TLDR
Host ecology and geographical distribution appear to be more important than host phylogeny in determining the distribution of this parasite across potential hosts in the region.

TLDR
A hypothesis (CI=57.3%) on the evolutionary relationships of families comprising the class Monogenoidea is proposed based on 141 character states in 47 homologous series and employing phylogenetic systematics and supports independent origins of the Montchadskyellidae within the Polyonchoinea and of the Neodactylodiscidae and Amphibdellatini within the order Dactylogyridea.

TLDR
Monophyly was established on the basis of spermatozoal and spermiogenetic ultrastructural characters in the Monogenea in the following groups: the Polyopisthocotylea (one synapomorphy), the MonopistHocotylesa (three synapomorphies), the Capsalidae/Dionchidae/Monocotylidae (two synap morphies), and a group ( two synapomorphicies).
