The taxonomy of Dactylogyrus Diesing, 1850 (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae), like that of most monopisthocotyleans, relies heavily on the morphology of sclerites of the posterior attachment organ (haptor). However, the associated neuromusculature is essentially unknown and, therefore, the aim of this study was to use confocal microscopy to examine the haptoral neuromusculature in two species of Dactylogyrus: D. amphibothrium Wagener, 1857 and D. crucifer Wagener, 1857. The monogeneans were stained… 
Muscular Arrangement and Sclerite Morphology in the Haptor of Tetraonchus monenteron (Monogenea, Dactylogyridea)
TLDR
Examining the haptoral sclerites and musculature in Tetraonchus monenteron, a common parasite of pike, found that the gaffing action of the dorsal anchors is likely to be achieved by the extrinsic muscles and the transverse muscle that clamps the extrInsic muscles against the body wall.
Musculoskeletal and nervous systems of the attachment organ in three species of Diplectanum (Monogenea: Dactylogyroidea).
TLDR
A detailed confocal-microscopy study of three species of Diplectanum found the nervous system of all three species conforms to the general pattern typical for the Dactylogyroidea and shows little variation between species.
Muscles of the male and female copulatory organs of Bursaphelenchus mucronatus and Chiloplacus sp. (Nematoda: Rhabditida)
TLDR
The musculature of the vulva and male copulatory organs in nematodes is examined by using phalloidin staining and confocal microscopy to examine two nematode species, Bursaphelenchus mucronatus and Chiloplacus sp.
Erratum to: Evolutionary modularity and morphological integration in the haptoral anchor structures of Ligophorus spp. (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae)
TLDR
It is concluded that there is modular structure in the anchors of Ligophorus spp.
Host Specificity, Community Components and Diversity Dynamics of Dactylogyrus spp. (Monogenean ectoparasites) Parasitizing Cyprinid Gills
TLDR
The results revealed the presence of 21 Dactylogyrid species, including 10 specialists and 11 generalists, and the highest richness mean (252) was documented for D. carassobarbi, while the highest prevalence percentage (44.44%) was recorded for D pavlovskyi.
First evidence of serotoninergic components in the nervous system of the monogenean Chimaericola leptogaster (Chimaericolidae, Polyopisthocotylea), a gill parasite of the relict holocephalan fish.
TLDR
The localised sites of the serotoninergic elements point to important roles of serotonin in monogenean reproductive processes and, possibly, in the regulation of muscle function in the flatworm C. leptogaster.

ARCHITECTURE OF HAPTORAL MUSCULATURE IN THREE SPECIES OF LIGOPHORUS (MONOGENEA, ANCYROCEPHALIDAE)
TLDR
This study used phalloidin staining in conjunction with confocal microscopy to examine haptoral musculature in three species of Ligophorus and compared with that of other ancyrocephalids.
[World fauna of Dactylogyrus spp. (Plathelminthes; Monogenea; Dactylogyridae) with five rayed ventral bar of the haptor. 1. Composition and structure].
TLDR
Systematization and description of composition and structure of the monogeneans from the genus Dactylogyrus Diesing, 1850 mostly having five rayed ventral bar of the haptor and parasitizing mainly Palaearctic Barbinae and Leuciscinae, and conjugate evolution of these dactsylogyrids and their fish hosts, are carried out.
The development of the adhesive organs of some diplectanid, tetraonchid and dactylogyrid gill parasites (Monogenea)
The adhesive organs of diplectanid, tetraonchid and dactylogyrid monogeneans develop in very similar ways indicating that all these gill parasites are closely related to each other. The oncomiracidia
Larvae and larval development of monogeneans.
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF CONGENERIC MONOGENEAN PARASITES (DACTYLOGYRUS): A CASE OF INTRAHOST SPECIATION
TLDR
The present study shows that the congeneric parasites speciating within one host tend to occupy niches within hosts differing at least in one niche parameter, which can be mainly explained by sympatric intrahost speciation events that seem to be correlated to strict host specificity.
Secretory products of the haptoral reservoirs and peduncular glands in two species of Bravohollisia (Monogenea : Ancyrocephalidae)
TLDR
It is postulated that the net-like secretions probably function as a safety line to anchor the worm during the onset of locomotion and in doing so reduce the risk of tearing host tissues.
[Dactylogyrids (Monogenea: Dactylogyridea) with unusual number of the anchors, their origin and phylogenetic significance. Original data].
TLDR
A homology of the hooks in dactylogyrids and the pin-like structures in the haptor of Anacanthorinae and Dactylogsyridae sensu Bychowsky et Nagibina, 1978 is demonstrated.
On the ontogeny of the haptor and the evolution of the Monogenea
TLDR
It is concluded that the ancient monogeneans with 5 + 5 unhinged marginal hooks were divided into two main lines, one retaining unhinging marginal hooks and the other evolving hinged marginal hooks, which reflects the early monogenean evolution.
Functional morphology of the platyhelminth nervous system
TLDR
The actions of neuronal substances in flatworms are largely undetermined, but FaRPs and 5-HT are known to be myoactive in all of the major groups, and there is immuno-cytochemical evidence that they have a role in the mechanism of egg assembly.
