  journal={Systematic Parasitology},
The monorchiid digenean Ancylocoelium typicum Nicoll, 1912, a parasite of the horse mackerel Trachurus trachurus (Carangidae), was essentially known from two descriptions based, respectively, on one and three specimens. It is redescribed and figured in detail based on numerous specimens from the rectum of three Trachurus spp. off Corsica in the western Mediterranean. It is compared with the type-species of the genus Lasiotocus Looss in Odhner, 1911, L. mulli (Stossich, 1883), for which new… Expand
Two monorchiid species from the freckled goatfish, Upeneus tragula Richardson (Perciformes: Mullidae), in Moreton Bay, Australia, including a proposal of a new genus
Two monorchiid species are reported from the freckled goatfish, Upeneus tragula Richardson and Parachrisomon delicatus, from Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia, showing that both genera are distinct from other sequencedmonorchiids, but overall the resolution between genera is poor and more sequence data are required to elucidate relationships within the family.

First steps to restructuring the problematic genus Lasiotocus Looss, 1907 (Digenea: Monorchiidae) with the proposal of four new genera.
The first DNA sequences forLasiotocus mulli (Stossich, 1883) Odhner, 1911, the type-species of the genus, and only the sixth Lasiotocus species to be sequenced, are reported and a system of six genera is proposed. Expand

A New Species of Monorchiid (Digenea) from the South China Sea
A new species of monorchiid trematode is described from the intestine of marine fish Secutor ruconius from Zhanjiang, China, distinguished from all known species of the genus by the configuration of vitelline follicles and the shape of excretory bladder. Expand
Digenean species diversity in teleost fish from a nature reserve off Corsica, France (Western Mediterranean), and a comparison with other Mediterranean regions
A more detailed analysis of the diversity of these parasites in sparid fishes indicates that the digenean diversity off Corsica is far greater than that in other parts of the Mediterranean. Expand

Two new genera, shape Provitellus and shape Ovipusillus, and four new species of Monorchiidae (Digenea) from carangid fishes of Queensland, Australia
Two new genera and four new species of monorchiid digeneans are described from the Great Barrier Reef and Moreton Bay, Queensland and extrapolation of the collection data suggests that there may be as many as 80 species ofmonorchiids infecting carangid fishes in Australia and 180 species infectingCarangids in all oceans of the world.
