The genus Microbothriorhynchus Yamaguti, 1952 is revised. Plerocerci of M. coelorhynchi Yamaguti, 1952 from the body-cavity of Brotula barbata (Bloch & Schneider) off the Angolan coast are re-described, and M. reimeri n. sp. from the body-cavity of Helicolenus maculatus (Cuvier) and Caelorinchus parallelus (Günther) from coastal waters off Mozambique is added to the genus. Both species are characterised in having an elongated, slightly craspedote scolex with small, collar-like bothridia, an… Expand
Microthrix pattern of Pseudogilquinia thomasi (Palm, 2000) (Cestoda: Trypanorhyncha) and a review of surface ultrastructure within the family Lacistorhynchidae Guiart, 1927
The microthrix pattern of larvae of Pseudogilquinia thomasi (Palm, 2000) is described for the first time using scanning electron microscopy and ANOVA tests with Duncan's post hoc analyses revealed that there are significant differences in the length of spinitriches and their prongs. Expand


An alternative classification of trypanorhynch cestodes considering the tentacular armature as being of limited importance

  • 2004
Advantages of this alternative classification of trypanorhynch cestodes are the resolution of incongruities and questions caused by the use of the tentacular armature to distinguish superfamilies, and the criteria for the establishment of higher taxa, superfam families and families are clearly defined.

A revision of Dasyrhynchus Pintner (Cestoda: Trypanorhyncha), parasitic in elasmobranch and teleost fishes
The genus Dasyrhynchus Pintner is revised and strobilar characters, namely the distribution of testes and the positions of the osmoregulatory canals, distinguish D. giganteus from D. variouncinatus whereas oncotaxy provides no distinguishing features. Expand

Results of a study on trypanorhynch cestodes of fishes from Indonesian coastal waters are presented. A new species, Dasyrhynchus thomasi sp. n., is described, and five species are recorded which allExpand
Grillotia heroniensis, sp. nov., and G. overstreeti, sp. nov., (Cestoda : Trypanorhyncha) from Great Barrier Reef Fishes
Two new species of Grillotia are described from fishes collected from Heron I, Australia, and have six principal hooks, one and two intercalary hooks, a longitudinal band of small hooks which end midlength along the tentacle and which extends to the base, and a distinctive basal armature. Expand
Re-examination of the trypanorhynch cestode collections of A.E. Shipley, J. Hornell and T. Southwell, with the erection of a new genus, Trygonicola, and redescriptions of seven species
Cestodes named by A.E. Shipley, J. Hornell and T. Southwell in the collections of the British Museum and the Naturhistorisches Museum, Vienna, are redescribed and re-illustrated. Expand
Preliminary cladistic analysis of genera of the cestode order Trypanorhyncha Diesing, 1863
A preliminary cladistic analysis was carried out on the 49 currently recognised genera of the order Trypanorhyncha, suggesting that two key characters used in existing classifications, namely the presence of sensory fossettes on the bothridia and the development of atypical heteroacanth and poeciloacanth armatures from typical heteroacanthus armatures, have occurred on several occasions.

Parasitism and ecological relationships among deep-sea benthic fishes
The metazoan parasite fauna of 52 species of deep-living benthic fishes from depths of 53 to 5000m off the New York Bight is studied to find out why fish from within the submarine canyon are more heavily infested than those living without. Expand
