Tapeworms of the genus Caryophyllaeus Gmelin, 1790 (Caryophyllidea: Caryophyllaeidae), common parasites of cyprinid fishes, are reviewed and taxonomic status of 42 nominal taxa that have been placed in the genus during its long history is clarified. The following seven species occurring in the Palaearctic Region are recognised as valid: C. laticeps (Pallas, 1781), C. auriculatus (Kulakovskaya, 1961), C. balticus (Szidat, 1941) comb. n. (syn. Khawia baltica Szidat, 1941), C. brachycollis… Expand
Scolex morphology of monozoic tapeworms (Caryophyllidea) from the Nearctic Region: taxonomic and evolutionary implications.
A comparative study of the scoleces of monozoic tapeworms, parasites of catostomid and cyprinid fishes in the Nearctic Region, was carried out using light and scanning electron microscopy. Expand
Comparative analysis of monozoic fish tapeworms Caryophyllaeus laticeps (Pallas, 1781) and recently described Caryophyllaeus chondrostomi Barčák, Oros, Hanzelová, Scholz, 2017, using microsatellite markers.
Six polymorphic microsatellite markers were applied in order to detect molecular differences between the two species and to provide molecular evidence of validity of C. chondrostomi and proved to be better molecular discriminative markers than rDNA and mtDNA. Expand
Phylogenetic reconstruction of early diverging tapeworms (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea) reveals ancient radiations in vertebrate hosts and biogeographic regions.
Whereas morphological characteristics traditionally used to differentiate caryophyllidean families do not characterise molecular lineages, host association and biogeographical distribution play a key role in the circumscription of the three well-supported clades revealed by molecular data. Expand
Molecular evidence of three closely related species of Biacetabulum Hunter, 1927 (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea): a case of recent speciation in different fish hosts (Catostomidae)?
Molecular and morphological and molecular evaluation of newly collected tapeworms from different fish hosts revealed the existence of four similar (and three closely related) species of Biacetabulum, providing evidence of their host specificity. Expand
The occurrence of the non-native tapeworm Khawia japonensis (Yamaguti, 1934) (Cestoda) in cultured common carp in the Czech Republic confirms its recent expansion in Europe
Another record of the Asian non-native fish tapeworm Khawia japonensis (Yamaguti, 1934) (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea) from common carp in Europe is reported, which confirms recent expansion of the parasite in Europe. Expand
Diversity of monogeneans and tapeworms in cypriniform fishes across two continents.
It is suggested that future research efforts be focussed on cypriniforms in order to obtain reliable data for robust assessments of parasite species richness and phylogenies, to assess host-parasite coevolution and to reveal fish biogeography. Expand
Chromosomal study of Khawia abbottinae (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea): karyotype and localization of telomeric and ribosomal sequences after fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)
The present study and its results enhance the limited knowledge on basic karyotype characteristics and 18S rDNA clusters location in caryophyllidean tapeworms. Expand


Scolex morphology of monozoic cestodes (Caryophyllidea) from the Palaearctic Region: a useful tool for species identification.
Based on scolex morphology and relative position of the anterior testes and vitelline follicles, a key is provided to facilitate the routine identification of 20 Palaearctic caryophyllidean taxa. Expand
New Circumscription Of Freshwater Fish Parasites Monobothrium Diesing, 1863 and Promonobothrium Mackiewicz, 1968 (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea) Using Morphological and Molecular Evidence
This study further supports the pattern that the biogeography of caryophyllidean taxa is generally constrained by host and continental association. Expand
Revision of Khawia spp. (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea), parasites of cyprinid fish, including a key to their identification and molecular phylogeny.
The molecular analysis of all seven valid species of Khawia, based on comparison of sequences of two nuclear ribosomal and two mitochondrial genes, has shown that the species form three major groups clustered according to their fish hosts. Expand
Morphological polymorphism in tapeworms: redescription of Caryophyllaeus laticeps (Pallas, 1781) (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea) and characterisation of its morphotypes from different fish hosts
Five distinct morphotypes of C. laticeps, largely corresponding to different fish hosts and representing separate, yet closely related genetic lineages, have been recognised and they are characterised and confirmed the key discriminating power of traits related to the reproductive system, especially the terminal reproductive organs. Expand
Cestodes (Caryophyllidea) of the Stinging Catfish Heteropneustes fossilis (Siluriformes: Heteropneustidae) from Asia
A critical review of the species composition has shown that only 1 species, Lucknowia fossilisi Gupta, 1961 (Lytocestidae), is a specific parasite of H. fossilis. Expand
Tapeworms (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea), Parasites of Clarias batrachus (Pisces: Siluriformes) in the Indomalayan Region
A revision of monozoic cestodes (Caryophyllidea) parasitic in commercially important walking catfish Clarias batrachus in tropical Asia was carried out, based on the evaluation of newly collected material from India, Indonesia, and Thailand, as well as a study of type specimens. Expand
Phenotypic plasticity in Caryophyllaeus brachycollis Janiszewska, 1953 (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea): does fish host play a role?
The presence of phenotypic plasticity in morphological characteristics previously used for differentiation of species of Caryophyllaeus may confound species identification, which is crucial for biodiversity, ecological and evolutionary studies. Expand
Revision of Wenyonia Woodland, 1923 (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea) from catfishes (Siluriformes) in Africa
Tapeworms of the genus Wenyonia Woodland, 1923 (Caryophyllidea: Caryophyllaeidae), parasites of catfishes in Africa, are revised based on material from large-scale sampling between 2006 and 2009 and the examination of all of the type-specimens available. Expand
The occurrence of the common European fish cestode Caryophyllaeus laticeps (Pallas, 1781) in the River Irtysh, China: a morphological characterization and molecular data
This paper provides the first reliable evidence about the occurrence of C. laticeps in northern China that is based on detailed morphological characteristics and mitochondrial cox1 sequences and molecular analysis confirmed the morphological identification of the species. Expand
