Two new species of strongyloid nematodes are described from tree-kangaroos, Dendrolagus spp. (Marsupialia: Macropodidae), from Irian Jaya, Indonesia. Macropostrongyloides dendrolagi n. sp. from the colon of Dendrolagus dorianus (type-host) and D. mbaiso is distinguished from congeners by the presence of a cephalic inflation and paired lateral alae which extend along the body from the cephalic inflation. Mbaisonema coronatum n. g., n. sp., from the stomach of D. mbaiso, is allocated to the tribe…

Corollonema thylogale n. g., n. sp. (Nematoda: Strongyloidea), parasitic in the pademelons Thylogale thetis and T. stigmatica (Marsupialia: Macropodidae) from Queensland, Australia
The presence of an internal leaf crown is unique within the tribe and the new genus Corollonema thylogale is erected on this basis.
Genetic variation within the genus Macropostrongyloides (Nematoda: Strongyloidea) from Australian macropodid and vombatid marsupials
Abstract The genetic variation and taxonomic status of the four morphologically-defined species of Macropostrongyloides in Australian macropodid and vombatid marsupials were examined using sequence
Phylogenetic Analysis of Mitogenomic Data Sets Resolves the Relationship of Seven Macropostrongyloides Species from Australian Macropodid and Vombatid Marsupials
The mitochondrial protein-coding genes provided greater insights into the diversity and phylogeny of the genus Macropostrongyloides; such data sets could potentially be used to elucidate the relationships among other parasitic nematodes of Australian marsupials.
Phylogenetic relationships of the nematode subfamily Phascolostrongylinae from macropodid and vombatid marsupials inferred using mitochondrial protein sequence data
The phylogenetic relationships within the subfamily Phascolostrongylinae and its relationship with the families Chabertiidae and Strongylidae were inferred from aligned, concatenated amino acid sequence data sets.
Helminth parasites of Australasian monotremes and marsupials.
This work includes all published records, to April 2015, of the helminths occurring in Australasian monotremes and marsupials, with due regard for synonymy and an attempt to include life history
Biodiversity and parasites of wildlife: helminths of Australasian marsupials.
This work examines some of the difficulties in documenting the helminth parasites of wildlife, including challenges in collecting uncommon host species, the ongoing description of new species of marsupials, the presence of cryptic species, and the decline in taxonomic expertise in Australia.

Dendrolagus scottae n.sp. (Marsupialia: Macropodidae): a new tree-kangaroo from Papua New Guinea
Dendrolagus scottae differs from all other tree-kangaroos in its uniform blackish colouration, narrow but long dentary, shallow face, and wide P/3 with a large posterobuccal cusp, while D. dorianus, the largest previously-known species, is almost bear-like in its proportions, with foreand hindlimbs subequal in length, a domed forehead and a very short tail.
Taxonomy of Dendrolagus goodfellowi (Macropodidae: Marsupialia) with description of a new subspecies
Sexual dimorphism in the extent of convergence of the parietal crests on the skull of Dendrolagus goodfellowi is revealed, which is unusual among tree-kangaroos, and indeed among the medium-sized to large macropodids in general, in that it is not sexually dimorphic in size.
A taxonomic revision of the Pharyngostrongylinea Popova (Nematoda : Strongyloidea) from macropodid marsupials
The nematode tribe Pharyngostrongylinea Popova, 1952 is revised, with new species of Rugopharynx recognized and description of the adult and fourth-stage larva of the only species, S. spirostrongylus, confirms the position of the genus in the Pharyghostrongsy linea.
Sibling species within Macropostrongyloides baylisi (Nematoda: Strongyloidea) from macropodid marsupials.
Macropostrongyloides baylisi from four different species or subspecies of host were analysed electrophoretically and revealed the existence of two species, one in Macropus giganteus and the other in M.r. robustus.
A revision of the subgenus Labiostrongylus (Labiosimplex) (Nematoda : Cloacinidae) from macropodid marsupials, with descriptions of twelve new species and a key to the species of the subgenus
A list of macropodid and potoroid hosts of species of Labiostrongylus is provided, and an indication of where further host collection is needed to augment taxonomic work on the genus is given.
A Taxonomic Revision of the Genera Macropostrongyloides Yamaguti and Paramacropostrongylus Johnston & Mawson (Nematoda: Trichonematidae) From Australian Marsupials.
The genera Macropostrongyloides Yamaguti, 1961, and Paramacropostrongylus Johnston & Mawson, 1949, are revised. Species of Macropostrongyloides recognized and described are M. lasiorhini (Mawson,
