Broader Geographic Sampling Increases Extent of Intermediate Host Specificity for a Trematode Parasite (Notocotylidae: Quinqueserialis quinqueserialis)
- Biology, MedicineJournal of Parasitology
This first report of snails naturally infected with Q. quinqueserialis in Canada is reported, demonstrating that this trematode species is not as host-specific for first intermediate host species as previously described.
Morphological and molecular characterization of Quinqueserialis (Digenea: Notocotylidae) species diversity in North America
This study illustrates the importance of integrating multiple sources of evidence when investigating trematode diversity to account for the influence of cryptic species or phenotypic plasticity as some species have no genetic information associated with them.
Pronocephaloid cercariae (Platyhelminthes: Trematoda) from gastropods of the Queensland coast, Australia.
- Medicine, BiologyJournal of helminthology
Phylogenetic and ecological evidence suggests that most of these species will prove to be pronocephalids parasitic in marine turtles, and the Vermetidae is a new host family for the Pronocephaloidea.
An examination of composition and species richness in trematode communities using Stagnicola elodes
This study explored the diversity of digenean trematode parasites associated with a well-studied freshwater snail, Stagnicola elodes, in Blacketts Lake, Cape Breton, in relation to another more pristine CapeBreton lake (Lake Ainslie) and to previous studies in North America.
Reproduction of trematodes in the molluscan host: an ultrastructural study of the germinal mass and brood cavity in daughter rediae of Tristriata anatis Belopolskaia, 1953 (Digenea: Notocotylidae)
- Medicine, BiologyParasitology Research
This study describes the fine structure of the germinal mass in daughter rediae of Tristriata anatis rediae, an enhancement of the embryo brooding function and the performance of this function by the brood cavity is reduced.
Life cycle and biology of Tristriata anatis (Digenea: Notocotylidae): morphological and molecular approaches
- Biology, MedicineParasitology Research
The life cycle of T. anatis is resolved by means of D2 LSU, ITS1 and CO1 DNA sequence analysis, showing that the first intermediate hosts for this species are periwinkles Littorina spp.
Tegumental ultrastructure of adult Quinqueserialis quinqueserialis (Trematoda: Notocotylidae): an intestinal parasite of muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus)
- Biology, MedicineParasitology Research
Ten adult Quinqueserialis quinqueserialis specimens were removed from the intestine of a naturally infected muskrat, and scanning electron microscopy was used to study the morphological…
Morphological features of cellular responses to different rates of trematode Quinqueserialis quinqueserialis (Trematoda: Notocotilidae) invasion in muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus)
- Biology, MedicineBiology Bulletin
Intensification of B lymphocyte blast transformation in caecum tissues as well as the appearance of blast cells in the blood of infected muskrats was observed.
Identification of a new species of digenean Notocotylus malhamensis n. sp. (Digenea: Notocotylidae) from the bank vole (Myodes glareolus) and the field vole (Microtus agrestis)
- Medicine, BiologyParasitology
This species appears to be most closely related to other previously described Notocotylus species infecting rodents in Europe but differs principally by the metraterm to cirrus sac ratio in combination with a densely spinulated cirrus, simple caeca and a greater number of ventral glands in the lateral rows.
Revealing Cryptic Parasite Diversity in a Definitive Host: Echinostomes in Muskrats
- Biology, MedicineThe Journal of parasitology
Molecular sequences provided a more accurate estimate of echinostome diversity in the muskrats and further support the idea that E. trivolvis is a species complex.
