Metazoan Parasites of Antarctic Fishes.
This list provides a list of all documented occurrences of monogenean, cestode, digenean, acanthocephalan, nematode, and hirudinean parasites of Antarctic fishes.
Eight new species of Macvicaria Gibson and Bray, 1982 (Digenea: Opecoelidae) mainly from endemic temperate marine fishes of Australia
Most of the species of Macvicaria showed interspecifi c diff erences in all of the characters enumerated, the most dramatic being in the position of the genital pore in one species.
Description of a New Opecoelid Trematode Species from Nototheniid Fish in the Beagle Channel (Sub-Antarctica)
Abstract: Macvicaria magellanica n. sp. (Digenea: Opecoelidae) is the third representative of this genus occurring in fish in the Magellanic sub-region of sub-Antarctica and the first one found in
Biodiversity and Evolution of Digeneans of Fishes in the Southern Ocean
It was found that these data suggest that digeneans in fishes of the Southern Ocean typically exhibit low levels of host-specificity, suggesting that the regions had been recently connected by a collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
Parasites of the Antarctic toothfish (Dissostichus mawsoni Norman, 1937) (Perciformes, Nototheniidae) in the Pacific sector of the Antarctic
New data on toothfish infection in the Pacific sector of the Antarctic is presented and 14 species of parasites were found using standard parasitological methods and genetic analysis during commercial longline fishing in January–February 2013.
Molecular evidence for the existence of species complexes within Macvicaria Gibson & Bray, 1982 (Digenea: Opecoelidae) in the western Mediterranean, with descriptions of two new species
Detailed comparative morphological and phylogenetic analyses revealed that two of the specimen sets sampled from five species of Mediterranean sparids sampled in the Bizerte Lagoon and the Bay of Bizersia represent species new to science.
Contribution to the knowledge of the parasitic fauna of fish off Adelie Land, Antarctica
Parasites in larval stage using fish as intermediate or paratenic hosts were more numerous than species maturing in fish, whereas the digenean, Genolinea bowersi, was the most numerous maturing parasite.
Description of Neolepidapedoides subantarcticus sp. nov. (Digenea, Lepocreadiidae) from sub-Antarctic notothenioid fishes
The most important taxonomic features are the presence of eye-spots, the spined tegument, the “Opechona-type” cirrus-sac, the external seminal vesicle free in the parenchyma, the gonads arranged in tandem, the vitelline follicles extending from the level of the oesophagus in the forebody to the posterior end of the body and the absence of a pseudoesophagus.
Opecoelids (Platyhelminthes, Digenea) from the fork-tailed threadfin bream Nemipterus furcosus (Valenciennes, 1830) (Perciformes, Nemipteridae), with preliminary keys to the problematic genera Macvicaria Gibson et Bray, 1982 and Neolebouria Gibson, 1976
The opecoelid species Macvicaria jagannathi (Gupta et Singh, 1985) Bijukumar, 1997 (new syn. Plagioporus deeghaensis Gupta et Gupta, 1988) and Neolebouria lineatus Aken’Ova et Cribb, 2001 are
Helminths of Antarctic fishes: Life cycle biology, specificity and geographical distribution
Bony fishes (Teleostei) play an important role in the completion of life cycles of helminth parasites in the Antarctica. These fishes may be definitive, second intermediate or paratenic hosts of the
