We compile all published information on the Recent Pentastomida published to date, including complete synonyms, and species distributions. All host species are cited and their names updated. A taxonomical history of the group, a synthesis of phylogenetic information for the taxon, and a summary of the pentastomes by host groups, with accounts of the illneses they provoke, are also provided.

Finding of pentastomes of genus Reighardia (Pentastomida) in the Belcher's gull (Larus belcheri).
TLDR
This is the first report showing that the Belcher's gull is a new natural definitive host for this pentastome, and Reighardia sp. Expand
Molecular characterization and phylogeny of Linguatula serrata (Pentastomida: Linguatulidae) based on the nuclear 18S rDNA and mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I gene
TLDR
In the phylogenies inferred from both gene loci, members of the genus Linguatula (order Porocephalida) were closer to those of the order Cephalobaenida than toThose of Porocephalida, reflecting a mismatch with the corresponding morphology-based taxonomy. Expand
Genus Raillietiella (Pentastomida) obtained from captive reptiles at a northern Japan zoo.
Pentastomid parasites belonging to the genus Raillietiella were obtained from the captive reptiles Gekko gecko and Trachydosaurus rugosus at a zoo in northern Japan in April 2013. This was the firstExpand
A 425-Million-Year-Old Silurian Pentastomid Parasitic on Ostracods
TLDR
A new, exceptionally preserved species, described based on adults from 425-million-year-old marine rocks, is the only known fossil pentastomid associated with a host, in this case a species of ostracod crustacean, and affirms the origin ofpentastomids as ectoparasitic on marine invertebrates. Expand
Constraining the Deep Origin of Parasitic Flatworms and Host-Interactions with Fossil Evidence.
TLDR
The putative record of parasitic flatworms is consistent with extant host associations and so can be used to put constraints on the evolutionary origin of the parasites themselves, which might result in imprecise, but accurate divergence estimates for the evolution of parasitic Flatworms. Expand
Endoparasites of Gymnotus sp. (Gymnotiformes: Gymnotidae) from commercial baitfish farming in Pantanal basin, central Brazil
This study evaluated the endohelminthic parasites of native baitfish Gymnotus spp. collected from different baitfish farming in the Pantanal basin, State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Central Brazil. FromExpand
First record of Porocephalus cf. clavatus (Pentastomida: Porocephalida) as a parasite on Bothrops asper (Squamata: Viperidae) in Costa Rica.
TLDR
A Bothrops asper snake was captured in the Caribbean region of Costa Rica and had its lung infested with pentastomids, identified as ca Porocephalus clavatus (Wyman, 1845), which represents the first record of Porocephalus (Humboldt, 1812) on B. asper as well as P. clAVatus in Costa Rica. Expand
First record of Porocephalus cf . clavatus ( Pentastomida : Porocephalida ) as a parasite on Bothrops asper ( Squamata : Viperidae ) in Costa Rica
Pentastomids are parasites that infect respiratory cavities of vertebrates, they are pretty common but poorly known in wildlife veterinary. A Bothrops asper snake (Garman, 1884) was captured in theExpand
Biodiversity and Taxonomy of the Parasitic Crustacea
TLDR
This chapter reviews the classification and species richness of each of the parasitic clades, which lie within two major pancrustacean lineages, the Multicrustacea and the Oligostraca. Expand

New host records of Brazilian pentastomid species.
TLDR
Four species ofpentastomids were recognised and three others were identified at the genus level, while four new hosts for the species of pentastomid were recorded. Expand
A new Late Cambrian pentastomid and a review of the relationships of this parasitic group
TLDR
A new form of pentastomids is added from Lower Ordovician boundary beds from Sweden, most likely reworked from Upper Cambrian horizons, and the diverging ideas on the systematic position of this fully parasitic taxon are reviewed. Expand
Phylogenetic position of the Pentastomida and (pan)crustacean relationships
TLDR
Gen arrangement comparisons strongly support an unforeseen assemblage of pentastomids with maxillopod and cephalocarid crustaceans, to the exclusion of remipedes, branchiopods, malacostracans and hexapods. Expand
Molecular evidence for inclusion of the phylum pentastomida in the crustacea
TLDR
Comparisons of nucleotide sequences of 18s ribosomal RNA from the pentastome Porocephalus crotali, the branchiuran crustacean fish louse Argulus nobilis, and representatives of the Annelida, Chelicerata, Myriapoda, and Insecta support an Argulus/PorocephaZus clade, providing strong support for the proposal that tongue worms are highly modified crustaceans closely related to fish lice.

Evolution in the pentastomids.
TLDR
This review is intended to inspire curiosity about the Pentastomida by discussing their evolution in relation to their phylogeny, host relationships, geographic distribution, transmission and impact. Expand
A revision of the pentastomid genus Parasambonia Stunkard & Gandal, 1968; a new generic character, a description of the male and a new species
TLDR
The male is characterized for the first time, as is another species, Parasambonia minor, and a new generic character, a chitinous extension of the fulcrum which overlies the outer hook, is described. Expand
On the systematics of the pentastomid genus Porocephalus (Humboldt, 1811) with descriptions of two new species
SummaryBy using comparative hook measurements and a standardized annulus counting procedure we have shown that the three previously described American species of Porocephalus are distinct. HoweverExpand
On the systematics and life-cycle of the pentastomid genus Kiricephalus Sambon, 1922 with descriptions of three new species
TLDR
The life-cycles of the Kiricephalus genus are shown to involve three vertebrate hosts, and eggs are only infective to amphibians, saurians or mammals, and snakes are second intermediate and definitive hosts, the final infection being acquired through ophiophagy. Expand
Some observations on the taxonomy and systematics of the pentastomid genus Armillifer (Sambon, 1922) in south east Asian and Australian snakes
TLDR
By using three diagnostic criteria, namely, hook dimensions, annulus number and the form of the terminal segment, it is shown that A. moniliformis australis from Australasian pythons, previously considered as a race of Heymons (1932), is, in fact, a distinct species. Expand
