The yellowbar angelfish Pomacanthus maculosus (Forsskål) (Perciformes: Pomacanthidae) is a beautiful, marine ornamental fish with very important commercial value. However, to date, no information is available on nematode parasite infection in P. maculosus. In the present study, the integrated approaches including light and scanning electron microscopy, and sequencing and analysing ribosomal [small ribosomal DNA (18S) and internal transcribed spacer (ITS)] and mitochondrial [cytochrome c oxidase… Expand

TLDR
The detailed morphology of the cephalic extremity, precloacal pseudo-sucker, caudal papillae, gubernaculum, phasmids and vulva of S. chinensis was studied for the first time and the supplementary morphological characters and genetic data will be very useful for the diagnosis of this poorly known nematode species.

TLDR
The detailed morphology of Cucullanus bourdini Petter et Le Bel, 1992 was further studied using both light and scanning electron microscopy, and this hitherto little known species was characterized genetically for the first time using molecular approaches. Expand

A new species of Pseudanuretes Yamaguti, 1936 (Copepoda: Caligidae) parasitic on the gills of the yellowbar angelfish Pomacanthus maculosus (Forsskål) from a coral reef off Iraq, north-westernExpand
A new Cosmocercoides species (Ascaridida: Cosmocercidae), C. wuyiensis n. sp., from the Asiatic frog Amolops wuyiensis (Amphibia: Anura).
We identified and characterized a new cosmocercid nematode species, Cosmocercoides wuyiensis n. sp., through microscopic examination and sequencing of the partial small ribosomal RNA gene (18S rDNA),Expand
Nematode parasites of commercially important fish from the southeast coast of Brazil: Morphological and genetic insight.
TLDR
The diversity and prevalence of nematode parasites in teleost fish from the southeast Atlantic coast of Rio de Janeiro, through morphological, molecular, and ecological approaches was determined, and Hysterothylacium deardorffoverstreetorum was found in all three fish species. Expand
Cucullanus carettae Baylis, 1923, in a loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) from the Adriatic sea: first detection and molecular characterization
TLDR
This is the first morphological and molecular identification of C. carettae in loggerhead turtles from the Adriatic Sea and additional studies on the distribution of this parasite in the Mediterranean are encouraged. Expand
Characterization of ecto- and endoparasite communities of wild Mediterranean teleosts by a metabarcoding approach
TLDR
The results highlighted that the metabarcoding approach was able to uncover a large spectrum of symbiotic organisms associated to the fish species studied, and symbionts not yet identified in several teleost species were putatively present. Expand

Morphological and molecular characterization of Cucullanus hainanensis sp. nov. (Ascaridida: Cucullanidae) from Muraenichthys gymnopterus (Bleeker) (Anguilliformes: Ophichthidae) in the South China Sea
TLDR
The new species can be readily distinguished from its congeners by the large pseudobuccal capsule, the position of excretory pore and deirids, the length of spicules and gubernaculum and the particular morphology of cloacal region in male. Expand
Cucullanid nematodes (Nematoda: Cucullanidae) from deep-sea marine fishes off New Caledonia, including Dichelyne etelidis n. sp.
TLDR
The new species, D. etelidis, is characterised mainly by the length of the spicules, a single intestinal caecum, the location of the deirids and excretory pore, the arrangement of the genital papillae and the host group. Expand
