Revision of the genus Soricinia Spassky & Spasskaja, 1954 (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea: Hymenolepididae) with redescriptions of three species, an amended generic diagnosis and an identification key to species

The type-species of the genus, Soriciniasoricis, is redescribed on the basis of the holotype from the Alpine shrew Sorex alpinus Schinz collected in Salève Mountain, France.

Molecular phylogeny and systematics of cestodes with rudimentary rostellum (Cestoda: Hymenolepididae) from Holarctic Sorex shews (Eulipotyphla: Soricidae)

Genetic data convincingly demonstrate that Ditestolepis diaphana, Spasskylepis ovaluteri and Mathevolespis macyi represent complexes of morphologically similar species, which resurrect the genus Spalania.

Mathevolepis alpina sp. n. (Cestoda: Hymenolepididae) from an alpine shrew: the first record of the genus in Europe.

The new species represents the first record of cestodes of the genus Mathevolepis Spassky, 1948 in Europe, i.e. the western part of the Palaearctic Region.

Overview of the cestode fauna of European shrews of the genus Sorex with comments on the fauna in Neomys and Crocidura and an exploration of historical processes in post-glacial Europe

It is suggested that origins of the cestode fauna pre-date those of the modern fauna of its hosts, and that initial formation and radiation occurred not later than the Pliocene.
