The author describes three species of protcocephalid cestodes from the Pimelodid fish, Pseudoplatystoma fasciatus (L.) from rivers of Mato Grosso, Brazil: Nomimoscolex lopesi sp. n., Peltidocotyle rugosa Diesing, 1850 and Spatulifer rugosa (Woodland, 1935). P. rugosa is for the first time referred in this fish species. One hyperparasite nematode specimen was found in a strobila of S. rugosa. 
The metascolex in proteocephalids Amilcar
The morphology of metascolex of Proteocephalid species, parasites of freshwater fishes from Brazil, is discussed by using scanning electron microscope. The importance of metascolex in the
Cestodes in South American freshwater teleost fishes: keys to genera and brief description of species
Keys to genera of cestodes in South American freshwater teleost fishes are provided, with diagnoses of genera and short descriptions of species. Two new genera are proposed, Chambriella gen.n. for
Type material of Platyhelminthes housed in the Helminthological Collection of the Oswaldo Cruz Institute/ FIOCRUZ (CHIOC), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 1979 to 2016 (Rhabditophora, Trematoda and Cestoda)
The second part of the catalogue of type material deposited in the Helminthological Collection of the Oswaldo Cruz Institute/ FIOCRUZ (CHIOC) is presented, to complement the first list of all types that was published in 1979.
Problems of classification of South American Proteocephalids (Cestoda). On a new classification for the group
The conclusions are that the actual taxonomy of the group, based on the papers of Woodland (1933-1935), can not be supported by these analyses, and it is suggested the supression of Monticellidae and its subfamilies.
A complete list of 432 species of Cestoda that have been described and/or reported in Brazil is presented. They are distributed across 15 orders and 36 families; 50 species are unidentified and 9 are
Tapeworms (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea) of Fishes from the Amazon River in Peru
In addition to adult tapeworms, larvae (metacestodes) of proteocephalideans were found encysted in the mesenteries, intestinal wall, and gills of small catfish.
Annotated checklist of fish cestodes from South America
An annotated checklist of tapeworms (Cestoda) that parasitize freshwater, brackish water and marine fishes, i.e. cartilaginous and bony fishes, in South America is presented and the current knowledge of their species diversity, host associations and geographical distribution is reviewed.
