Allopodocotyle enkaimushi n. sp. (Digenea: Opecoelidae: Plagioporinae) from the Short-Tail Grenadier, Nezumia proxima (Gadiformes: Macrouridae), from Sagami Bay, Japan, with a Key to Species of This Genus and a Checklist of Parasites Reported from This Host
The combination of tandem testes, an entirely pre-acetabular cirrus pouch, and a pre-bifurcal genital pore distinguishes A. enkaimushi n.
Endemicity of Paragonimus and paragonimiasis in Sub-Saharan Africa: A systematic review and mapping reveals stability of transmission in endemic foci for a multi-host parasite system
Mapping showed temporal stability of endemic foci, with the majority of known occurrences of Paragonimus found in the rainforest zone of West and Central Africa, but with several outliers elsewhere on the continent, suggesting substantial under sampling and localised infection where potential host distributions overlap.
Further reports of Acanthocolpidae Lühe, 1906 (Digenea) from fishes off New Caledonia, with descriptions of two new species
Acanthocolpus liodorus Lühe, 1906 and Stephanostomoides tenuis (Manter, 1963) are reported from Chirocentrus dorab (Forsskål) for the first time from off New Caledonia. Stephanostomumnoumeaense n.
Siphoderina hustoni n. sp. (Platyhelminthes: Trematoda: Cryptogonimidae) from the Maori snapper Lutjanus rivulatus (Cuvier) on the Great Barrier Reef
A new cryptogonimid trematode, Siphoderina hustoni n. sp., is reported, collected off Lizard Island, Queensland, Australia, from the Maori snapper Lutjanus rivulatus (Cuvier). The new species is
A new species, new host records and life cycle data for lepocreadiids (Digenea) of pomacentrid fishes from the Great Barrier Reef, Australia
A new species of lepocreadiid, Opechonoides opisthoporus n. sp., is described infecting 12 pomacentrid fish species from the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, with Abudefduf whitleyi Allen & Robertson
The potential use of mitochondrial ribosomal genes (12S and 16S) in DNA barcoding and phylogenetic analysis of trematodes
It is demonstrated that the mitochondrial rRNA genes could be alternative genetic markers robust for trematode molecular identification and potentially helpful for DNA barcoding where the authors' primers can be widely applied across the major Digenea orders.
Invasive snails, parasite spillback, and potential parasite spillover drive parasitic diseases of Hippopotamus amphibius in artificial lakes of Zimbabwe
These findings indicate that artificial lakes are breeding grounds for endemic and non-endemic snails that transmit trematode parasites of the common hippopotamus, and it is argued that monitoring the anthropogenic impact on parasite transmission should become an integral part of wildlife conservation efforts.
The role that nature conservation can play to mitigate the spread of future infectious diseases
The emergence of infectious diseases is reviewed highlighting the potential role played by main environmental anthropogenic disturbances as, deforestation, land-use change, human-induced climate
Identification of hit compounds with anti-schistosomal activity on in vitro generated juvenile worms in cell-free medium
This standardized and reliable in vitro assay shows that important S. mansoni developmental stages up to LiS worms can be generated and cultured over an extended period and limits sensitivity to potential new compounds which are predominantly active in later developmental stages.

Trematodes of the family Opisthorchiidae: a minireview.
The final aims of this review are to provide information on the entire genera of the family Opisthorchiidae, which will aid understanding of the phylogenetic relationships not only within the family, but also within the Class Trematoda.
Notes of the Occurrence of Parasites Presumably Rare in Man
Three species of nematodes have now occurred in several small consignments; and one must conclude that they are common parasites in certain localities.
Current knowledge on non‐native freshwater fish introductions
This review provides a contemporary account of knowledge on aspects of introductions of non-native fish species and includes issues associated with introduction pathways, ecological and economic
Seasonal Variation of Opisthorchis viverrini Metacercarial Infection in Cyprinid Fish from Southern Cambodia
Variations of metacercarial infection with Opisthorchis viverrini among cyprinid fish caught in endemic areas of southern Cambodia, during the period 2008-2009 are described.
