The nematode Heth impalutiensis n. sp. is described from an unidentified spirostreptid millipede (Harpagophoridae) from the Bukidnon Province of Mindanao, the Philippines. Based on morphological characters, H. impalutiensis n. sp. is closest to Asian-Pacific representatives of the genus. Females of H. impalutiensis n. sp. are close to H. dimorphum and H. vietnamensis in body size and form of the lateral lappets, but can be distinguished by the significantly longer tail. Males of H… 
Two new species of Heth Cobb, 1898 (Nematoda: Ransomnematoidea) from Northern Mindanao, the Philippines
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of SSU and LSU rDNA is provided and the description of H. initiensis n.
A novel copro-diagnostic molecular method for qualitative detection and identification of parasitic nematodes in amphibians and reptiles
A non-invasive PCR-based methodology for sensitive detection and identification of parasitic nematode DNA released in the faeces of infected amphibians as egg or tissue fragments (environmental DNA), which mitigates problems associated with microscopic identification and can be applied to detect nematodes parasitoses in wild and captive hosts for infection surveillance and maintenance of healthy populations.


A new species of Heth Cobb, 1898 (Nematoda: Rhigonematida: Hethidae) from an Australian millipede (Myriapoda: Diplopoda: Spirostreptida)
Abstract A new species of nematode, Heth baudini sp. n. from a diplopod (Spirostreptida: Iulomorphidae Verhoeff, 1924) collected in Queensland, Australia, is described and illustrated. The cephalic
Four new species of Heth Cobb, 1898 (Rhigonematida: Hethidae) from Vietnamese diplopods
Four new species of Heth are described from diplopods collected in different parts of Viet Nam, which are morphologically related to those described from Papua New Guinea, but are differentiated by the form of the female cuticular armature.
Ichthyocephaloides sumbatus n. sp. (Nematoda: Rhigonematoidea) from Indonesia and additional data on Xystrognathus phrissus Hunt, Pham Van Luc & Spiridonov, 2002
The new species is morphologically related to Australasian species of Ichthyocephaloides by the presence of a long, subulate tail in both sexes, distribution and number of genital papillae, presence of genital diverticulum and anterior position of vulva.
A new genus of Carnoyidae (Nematoda: Rhigonematida) with descriptions of Cattiena trachelomegali gen. n., sp. n. and C. trigoniuli gen. n., sp. n., parasites of Spirobolida (Diplopoda) from Vietnam
Two new species of spirobolid diplopods from Vietnam are described, one of which has morphological affinities with Raonema Kloss, 1965, a poorly known genus from India, but is easily differentiated by the extremely posterior vulva and the presence of spine rows in the male.
Phylogenetic relationships of Steinernema Travassos, 1927 (Nematoda: Cephalobina: Steinernematidae) based on nuclear, mitochondrial and morphological data
Parsimony mapping of morphological characters on the 3-gene trees showed that most structural features of steinernematids are highly homoplastic, and the distribution of nematode foraging strategies on these trees predicts that S. hermaphroditum, S. diaprepesi and S. longicaudum have cruise forager behaviours.
A molecular evolutionary framework for the phylum Nematoda
It is suggested that animal parasitism arose independently at least four times, and plant parasitism three times, which indicates that convergent morphological evolution may be extensive and that present higher-level classification of the Nematoda will need revision.
Molecular phylogeny of clade III nematodes reveals multiple origins of tissue parasitism
Mapping of host ‘habitat’ revealed that tissue-dwelling localization of nematode adults has evolved independently at least 3 times, and relationships among Spirurina and Camallanina often reflected tissue predilection rather than taxonomy.
Phylum-wide analysis of SSU rDNA reveals deep phylogenetic relationships among nematodes and accelerated evolution toward crown Clades.
The exclusive common presence of fungivorous and plant parasitic nematodes supports a long-standing hypothesis that states that plant parasitic Nematodes arose from fungivory ancestors.
Nematode‐specific PCR primers for the 18S small subunit rRNA gene
A set of polymerase chain reaction primers were designed, which amplify a c . 1 kb fragment of the 18S ribosomal DNA gene, and are specific to the phylum Nematoda. These have proven useful in
