Commercial crab populations off the Kamchatka coasts are infested to a considerable degree by the rhizocephalan parasite Briarosaccus callosus: of 769 Lithodes aequispina males examined, 43 (5.7%) were parasitized. Infestations result in the feminization of the crabs, a significant decrease in the cheliped length, and a significant decrease in the carapace length and width. We suggest that commercial selection of healthy males, and the returning of unsuitable crabs, including infested ones… 

Parasitism of the rhizocephalan Briarosaccus callosus on the crab Paralomis verrilli (Crustacea: Lithodidae) in the waters of southeast Sakhalin

TLDR
The crab Paralomis verrilli in the waters of southeast Sakhalin is infected by the parasitic rhizocephalan barnacle Briarosaccus callosus and a positive relationship was found between the width of the crab carapace and the length of the parasitic externae.

Effects of rhizocephalans on their king crab hosts

TLDR
Overall rhizocephalans may have sufficient impacts on golden king crabs to affect commercial fisheries and may hinder the crab's ability to find and process food by slowing the crab’s foraging.

Salmacisia, a new genus of Tilletiales: reclassification of Tilletia buchloëana causing induced hermaphroditism in buffalograss.

TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of nLSU-rDNA sequences show that pistil smut exhibits an elevated rate of nucleotide substitution and is as, or more, distant from Tilletia species than the basal group Erratomyces patelli, and occupies a phylogenetic position outside the current taxonomic circumscription of genus Tilletio.

Two new cryptic and sympatric species of the king crab parasite Briarosaccus (Cirripedia: Rhizocephala) in the North Pacific

TLDR
It is shown that Briarosaccus specimens from these three commercial exploited king crabs are in fact morphologically distinct from B. callosus, and further represent two separate species which are described, which are cryptic by morphological means and were identified as distinct species by the use of genetic markers.

Parasitic castration by a stinking smut regulates sex determination and inflorescence architecture in dioecious buffalograss.

TLDR
It is shown that T. buchloëana induces hermaphroditism in not only male sex forms of buffalograss by inducing the development of otherwise vestigial pistils, but also in female sex forms by inducing hypertrophy of otherwise Vestigial stamens, and that pistil smut exhibits a set of morphological and life cycle characteristics that are unique among species of order Tilletiales.

Prevention and Management of Infectious Diseases in Aquatic Invertebrates

TLDR
Prevention and Management of Infectious Diseases in Aquatic Invertebrates and Pathogens can include parasites, but are typically microor­ ganisms that produce disease under normal conditions of host resistance (Onstad et al., 2006).

Parasites of fish larvae: do they follow metabolic energetic laws?

TLDR
The ratio between the biovolume of parasites and the host body volume in fish larvae was similar to the proportion observed in castrator parasites, which suggests that the presence of parasites implies a high energetic cost for fish larvae that would diminish the fitness of these small hosts.

Histopathology and host response in lithodid crabs parasitized by Briarosaccus callosus

TLDR
Two red and 26 golden king crabs parasitized by the rhzocephalan Briarosaccus callosus were examined microscopically for histopathological effects of and host response to the parasite.

LENGTH-WEIGHT RELATIONSHIPS OF BLUE, PARALITHODES PLATYPUS, AND GOLDEN, LITHODES AEQUISPINA, KING CRABS PARASITIZED BY THE RHIZOCEPHALAN, BRIAROSACCUS CALWSUS BOSCHMA

TLDR
Parasitized male blue king crabs and parasitized male golden king crabs weighed significant­ ly less than nonparasitized individuals and the prevalence of infection was greater in samples where sublegalor smaller size classes of adults were included in analyses suggesting that crab growth was reduced by the parasite.

Intravital and histological studies of the internal organization of the rhizocephalan barnacleSacculina polygenea

TLDR
It is shown that the colonial interna of S. polygenea includes an extensive trophic system (a “root” system), which performs the functions of absorption, accumulation, and transportation of nutrients, and a reproductive system represented by numerous externa primordia at different stages of development.

Organization of Interna in Sacculina polygenea (Crustacea: Rhizocephala)

TLDR
Trophic and reproductive systems of colonial interna in Sacculina polygenea, a parasite of the coastal crab Hemigrapsus sanguineus, are found and the term individual is proposed to be used for the externa in rhizocephalan barnacles with its trophic system.
