SUMMARY Myxosporean parasites are significant parasites of fishes not only for their apparent high diversity but also for their potential impact on fish health and/or marketability. Regardless, our knowledge of most myxosporeans, especially those found in elasmobranch hosts, is superficial. A study of multivalvulidan diversity in a range of elasmobranchs from Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory (Australia) was conducted to address this knowledge gap. Specimens were… Expand
Phylogenetic study of the genus Kudoa (Myxozoa: Multivalvulida) with a description of Kudoa rayformis sp. nov. from the trunk muscle of Pacific sierra Scomberomorus sierra.
TLDR
The results demonstrated that the phenotypic traits were correlated with the phylogeny of Kudoidae, and that the biological features of K. rayformis originated from the ancient Kudoids as exhibited by the non-specific infection site tropism and the ability to infect muscle and form pseudocysts.

Bipteria vetusta n. sp. – an old parasite in an old host: tracing the origin of myxosporean parasitism in vertebrates.
TLDR
This study believes that the present study is the first attempt at molecular dating of myxozoan evolution based on an old myxosporean species – a living myxosphereorean fossil. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of the Myxobolus and Henneguya Genera with Several New South American Species
TLDR
Maximum likelihood and maximum parsimony analyses, based on 18 S rDNA gene sequences, showed that the strongest evolutionary signal is the phylogenetic affinity of the fish hosts, with clustering mainly occurring according to the order and/or family of the host. Expand
First report of Kudoa thunni and Kudoa musculoliquefaciens affecting the quality of commercially harvested yellowfin tuna and broadbill swordfish in Eastern Australia.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that not all infected swordfish progress to jellymeat, show the usefulness of molecular tools for reliably identifying infection by Kudoa spp. Expand
Morphological and molecular genetic characterization of two Kudoa spp., K. musculoliquefaciens, and K. pleurogrammi n. sp. (Myxosporea: Multivalvulida), causing myoliquefaction of commercial marine fish
TLDR
Molecular genetic characterization of kudoid species with the potential to induce post-mortem myoliquefaction will facilitate the reliable and specific identification of myxosporeans found in either jellied or normal muscles of important commercial fish. Expand
New host records of monacanthid fish for three Kudoa spp. (K. septempunctata, K. thyrsites, and K. shiomitsui) prevalent in the olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus), with the description of K. parathyrsites n. sp. from a black scraper (Thamnaconus modestus)
TLDR
The recent survey of myxosporean infection in monacanthid fish in natural waters around Japan revealed infection with three kudoid species prevalent in the olive flounder, i.e., K. septempunctata, Kudoa thyrsites, and Kudo a shiomitsui. Expand
Biliary Tract-Infecting Myxosporeans from Estuarine and Reef Stonefish (Scorpaeniformes: Synanceiidae) Off Eastern Australia, with Descriptions of Sphaeromyxa horrida n. sp. and Myxidium lapipiscis n. sp. (Myxosporea: Bivalvulida)
TLDR
Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood analysis of the SSU rDNA sequences for these 2 new species revealed that Sph. Expand
Two novel myxosporean parasites in Black Sea fishes: Kudoa niluferi sp. nov. and Kudoa anatolica sp. nov. (Cnidaria: Myxosporea).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis based on nuclear small subunit rDNA suggested K. niluferi and K. anatolica as 2 novel species that appeared in the same lineage with K. nova and formed a Black Sea lineage. Expand
Unicapsula species (Myxosporea: Trilosporidae) of Australian marine fishes, including the description of Unicapsula andersenae n. sp. in five teleost families off Queensland, Australia
TLDR
A survey of the myxosporean fauna of Australian marine fishes revealed the presence of three previously unreported species of Unicapsula from sites off Southeast Queensland, off Lizard Island on the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, and from Jurien Bay in Western Australia. Expand

ABSTRACT. Kudoa monodactyli n. sp. is described from the somatic musculature of Monodactylus argenteus from several localities in southern Queensland, Australia. This is the first record of aExpand
Patterns of relatedness in the Kudoidae with descriptions of Kudoa chaetodoni n. sp. and K. lethrini n. sp. (Myxosporea: Multivalvulida)
TLDR
Two morphologically novel Kudoa species are characterized from brain tissue of fish and may either prove to be con-specific, even though morphology and distribution differ, or demonstrate the limit of specific resolution in the small subunit rDNA gene region. Expand
First Report of Three Kudoa Species from Eastern Australia: Kudoa thyrsites from Mahi mahi (Coryphaena hippurus), Kudoa amamiensis and Kudoa minithyrsites n. sp. from Sweeper (Pempheris ypsilychnus)
TLDR
Through morphological and molecular analyses, the presence of both K. thyrsites and K. amamiensis are confirmed in eastern Australian waters and a novel Kudoa species was identified, having stellate spores, with one polar capsule larger than the other three. Expand
Four new species of KudoaMeglitsch, 1947 (Myxosporea: Multivalvulida) from Australia with recommendations for species descriptions in the Kudoidae
TLDR
A new set of schematics including additional measurements to give a more thorough description of spore morphology and evidence for uniqueness of 4 new species within the Kudoidae are proposed. Expand

TLDR
A taxonomic review of the genus Kudoa Meglitsch is warranted to verify the host range, geographical distribution, and validity of several of its species and the use of molecular systematics to answer these questions has been initiated. Expand
TWO UNUSUAL MYXOZOANS, KUDOA QUADRICORNIS N. SP. (MULTIVALVULIDA) FROM THE MUSCLE OF GOLDSPOTTED TREVALLY (CARANGOIDES FULVOGUTTATUS) AND KUDOA PERMULTICAPSULA N. SP. (MULTIVALVULIDA) FROM THE MUSCLE OF SPANISH MACKEREL (SCOMBEROMORUS COMMERSON) FROM THE GREAT BARRIER REEF, AUSTRALIA
TLDR
Two unusual myxozoan parasites are described from the somatic muscle of 2 reef fishes from Australia's Great Barrier Reef andylogenetic analysis showed that these parasites cluster within a clade comprised of Kudoa species, bringing into question the division of parasites of the Multivalvulida into genera based solely on polar capsule numbers.

It is proposed to synonymize Pentacapsulidae, Hexacapsula, and Septemcapsulidae with Kudoidae alter the diagnosis of Kudoidsae and Kudoa to accommodate all marine myxozoan parasites having 4 or more shell valves and polar capsules. Expand
Wildlife as reservoirs for parasites infecting commercial species: host specificity and a redescription of Kudoa amamiensis from teleost fish in Australia.
TLDR
The observations show that reef fish may act as a reservoir of myxozoan infection for commercial species, and as such should be considered an infection pathway for species in aquaculture. Expand
Phylogeography of the Cosmopolitan Marine Parasite Kudoa thyrsites (Myxozoa: Myxosporea)
TLDR
The data indicate that K. histolytica is not a valid species, as it was morphologically and genetically indistinguishable from K. thyrsites, and there is evidence for regional subdivision of K.Thyrsites suggesting global transplantation of fishes has yet to homogenize these distinctions. Expand
