Are well-studied marine biodiversity hotspots still blackspots for animal barcoding?

Intestinal helminths of a landlocked ringed seal (Phoca hispida saimensis) population in eastern Finland
TLDR
Variation in the number of worms in individual seals may indicate differences in feeding behaviour and in the diet of seals, and/or variation in the immune status of the seals.
Helminth Parasites in Ringed Seals (Pusa hispida) From Svalbard, Norway with Special Emphasis on Nematodes: Variation with Age, Sex, Diet, and Location of Host
TLDR
Nematode abundance increased significantly with age of male hosts, but this trend was lacking in female seals, and infection parameters appeared to be related to differences in the age of polar cod exploited by male, female, and juvenile seals.
Host records and geographical distribution of Corynosoma magdaleni, C. semerme and C. strumosum (Acanthocephala: Polymorphidae)
TLDR
While most of the definitive hosts are shared amongst the three Corynosoma species, C. strumosum showed the broadest range of paratenic hosts, which reflects its more extensive geographical distribution.
Landscape Genetics of Schistocephalus solidus Parasites in Threespine Stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) from Alaska
TLDR
Evidence of fine-scale population structure in S. solidus indicates that movement of its vagile, definitive avian hosts has less influence on gene flow than expected based solely on movement potential.
Phocid seals, seal lice and heartworms: a terrestrial host-parasite system conveyed to the marine environment.
TLDR
It is shown that the heartworms infects nearly the same species of seals as the seal louse, except for the grey seal Halichoerus grypus, where the heartworm is absent.
Distribution of the plerocercoid of Ligula intestinalis
  • T. Orr
  • Environmental Science, Biology
  • 2009
TLDR
The geographical distribution of the cestode Ligula intestinalis (Linnaeus 1758) is described with reference to the species of freshwater fish infected and it is suggested that transplantation of the larval cestodes from the body cavity of one fish to another may yield more definite information as regards specificity.
Checklist of tapeworms (Platyhelminthes, Cestoda) of vertebrates in Finland
TLDR
The main pattern emerging from the present data is the seemingly unexplained absence in (northern) Fennoscandia of several mammalian tapeworms that otherwise have extensive distributions in the Holarctic region or in Eurasia, including the northern regions.
HELMINTH FAUNA OF ICE SEALS IN THE ALASKAN BERING AND CHUKCHI SEAS, 2006–15
TLDR
No species of the acanthocephalan genus Bolbosoma was found, although the genus was previously identified in ringed, spotted, and ribbon seals, and no increases in the prevalence of endemic parasites in these seal species were found.
Problematic barcoding in flatworms: A case-study on monogeneans and rhabdocoels (Platyhelminthes)
TLDR
It is demonstrated how high molecular variability and contamination problems limit the possibilities for barcoding using standard COI-based protocols in flatworms, and it is concluded that mitochondrial and nuclear ribosomal markers perform equally well.
Schistocephalus cotti n. sp. (Cestoda: Pseudophyllidea) plerocercoids from bullheads Cottus gobio L. in an Arctic river in Finland, with a key to the plerocercoids of the Palaearctic species of the genus
We compared plerocercoids of Schistocephalus Creplin, 1829 from Cottus gobio (n = 57) and Gasterosteus aculeatus f. semiarmatus (n = 45) from the River Utsjoki, Finland, taken only from single worm
