Plehniella Szidat, 1951 is emended based on new collections from South American long-whiskered catfishes. It is clearly differentiated from Sanguinicola Plehn, 1905 by lacking lateral tegumental body spines and by having 6 asymmetrical caeca. Plehniella sabajperezi sp. n. infects body cavity of Pimelodus albofasciatus (Mees) from the Demerara and Rupununi Rivers (Guyana) and Pimelodus blochii (Valenciennes) from Lake Tumi Chucua (Bolivia) and Napo River (Peru). It differs from Plehniella… Expand

TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis, based on both ITS2 and partial 28S rDNA regions, shows that these three species form a clade nested within that formed by existing species of Cardicola. Expand

TLDR
Comparison of the large (28S) and small (18S) sub-unit ribosomal DNA and internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) regions between specimens of A. glacialis n. Expand
Cardicola mediterraneus n. sp. (Trematoda, Aporocotylidae): a new species infecting the gilthead seabream, Sparus aurata L., from the Western Mediterranean Sea.
TLDR
The genus Cardicola has a complex taxonomy and shows high intrageneric differences for both 28S and ITS2 rDNAs, similar to the intergeneric differences among other aporocotylid genera, suggesting that it could be split. Expand
Helminth diversity in Pimelodus blochii Valenciennes, 1840 (Osteichthyes: Pimelodidae) in two Amazon Rivers
TLDR
Helminth abundance, prevalence, and diversity were influenced by seasonality and locality (river), and the helminth parasites from Acre’s fishes formed a subset of thehelminth community of the Xapuri's fishes. Expand
Community structure of metazoan parasites from Pimelodus blochii in two rivers of the Western Brazilian Amazon: same seasonal traits, but different anthropogenic impacts
TLDR
It is suggested that environmental traits may overshadow seasonal influences on the parasite community structure of the catfish Pimelodus blochii, which may be related to the higher anthropization in River Acre. Expand
