Postoncomiracidia of Dionchus sp. are described from specimens collected from the skin of 2 blacktip sharks Carcharhinus limbatus, captured in the northern Gulf of Mexico. The parasites resemble nonciliated oncomiracidia hatched from eggs laid by Dionchus sp. on gills of a cobia Rachycentron canadum and adults of Dionchus remorae that were collected from gills of a common sharksucker Echeneis naucrates, captured in association with a third blacktip shark. The hamuli of the postoncomiracidia… Expand
New Benedenia Species (Monogenea: Capsalidae) from Diagramma labiosum (Perciformes: Haemulidae) On the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, With Oncomiracidial Descriptions and A Report of Egg Attachment to the Host
TLDR
2 new species of Benedenia Diesing, off Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia, hosts 2 new species that fit the current concept for the genus more closely than other capsalid genera and indicate potentially useful characters for division of the genus in the future. Expand
Skin lesions on yellowfin tuna Thunnus albacares from Gulf of Mexico outer continental shelf: Morphological, molecular, and histological diagnosis of infection by a capsalid monogenoid.
TLDR
The present study comprises the first published report of this parasite from yellowfin tuna captured in the Gulf of Mexico-NW Atlantic Ocean Basin, confirmation of its infection on the skin (rather than on a parasitic copepod), and the first molecular data for this capsaline. Expand
The capsalidae (Monogenea: Monopisthocotylea): a review of diversity, classification and phylogeny with a note about species complexes.
TLDR
A suggestion that Neobenedenia melleni, a pathogenic species atypical due to its broad host-specificity, may be a complex of species is supported from genetic evidence and has implications for fish health. Expand
Looks can deceive: molecular phylogeny of a family of flatworm ectoparasites (Monogenea: Capsalidae) does not reflect current morphological classification.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of 47 species in 20 genera from eight of the nine subfamilies were reconstructed from nucleotide sequences of three unlinked nuclear genes, 28S ribosomal RNA, Histone 3 and Elongation Factor 1 alpha, finding that the Capsalidae family was monophyletic, with the Gyrodactylidae and Udonellidae forming the sister group.

Neobenedenia melleni Parasite of Red Snapper, Lutjanus erythropterus, with Regression Statistical Analysis between Fish Length, Temperature, and Parasitic Intensity in Infected Fish, Cultured at Jerejak Island, Penang, Malaysia
TLDR
The fish parasites collected from Lutjanus erythropterus fish species showed a correlation with parasitic intensity, fish size, and temperature, and statistical model summary concluded that among the variables which significantly predict the prevalence of Neobenedenia melleni parasites are fish length and water temperature. Expand
Family ties: molecular phylogenetics, evolution and radiation of flatworm parasites (Monogenea: capsalidae).
TLDR
The Capsalidae is shown to be monophyletic, with the sister group remaining unresolved, and the Monopisthocotylea and the evolution of diet across the Neodermata are hypothesised to represent the first shift to parasitism in the NeODermata from a free living ancestor. Expand

Counter-Insurgents of the Blue Revolution? Parasites and Diseases Affecting Aquaculture and Science
TLDR
This paper reviews Myxobolus cerebralis, Lepeophtheirus salmonis, white spot syndrome virus, and assorted flatworms as select marquee Aquaculture pathogens, summarizes the status of the diseases caused by each and their impacts on aquaculture, and highlights some of the significant contributions these pathogens have made to the science of parasitology and aquacculture.

Microhabitats of gill parasites (Monogenea and Copepoda) of teleosts (Scomberoides spp.)
TLDR
It is indicated that intra- and interspecific competition may occur among the gill parasites and the direction and speed of ventilation water-currents and certain intrinsic factors of the parasite themselves may determine their microhabitat restriction on the gills. Expand

TLDR
Egg attachment by D. remorae to their remora hosts seems well adapted to successful larval invasion of fish which exhibit phoresy, and possible advantages to the parasite by attaching eggs to the gills of its host include improved oxygenation of the eggs, and a reduced risk of egg predation. Expand

The Parasitic Copepod Diet and Life History of Diskfishes (Echeneidae)
TLDR
Life history information resulting from extensive collection data is included in the discussion of each of the six species considered, and the growth stage of the life history of the echeneid during which it feeds on parasites varies among species. Expand

Abstract The small monocotylid monogenean Horricauda rhinobatidis is abundant on the gills of its host Rhinobatos batillum, whereas the larger, related monogenean Troglocephalus rhinobatidis isExpand

TLDR
This chapter focuses on hatching rhythms and hatching factors, which in many monogeneans are of fundamental importance in infection of new hosts, and the intriguing changes in reproductive biology that have accompanied the progressive attenuation of the ties between tetrapod hosts and the aquatic environment.

Monogenetic trematodes of some Gulf of Mexico fishes.
TLDR
This paper treats several species belonging to the subfamily TETRAONCHINAE Monticelli, 1903 and is a continuation of the data concerning members of the superfamily GYRODACTYLOIDEA Johnston and Tiegs, 1922 obtained during a recently concluded study of these ectoparasites. Expand
Gill Ventilation in Remora remora
TLDR
During passive respiration at 60 cm/sec, apparently more water could pass over the gills than was required and the fish continuously adjusted the mouth and opercular openings to regulate the volume flow. Expand
