Abstract Adults of Clinostomum spp. are digenetic trematodes found in fish-eating birds, reptiles and occasionally mammals, including humans. Freshwater snails serve as first intermediate hosts and many fish species and amphibians as second intermediate hosts. To date, amphibian hosts of Clinostomum metacercariae include members of urodele and anuran families in North America, but no data are available on infections of European amphibians, including newts. In this study, we characterize… Expand
The discovery of Clinostomum complanatum metacercariae in farmed Chinese sucker, Myxocyprinus asiaticus
Abstract Yellow grub disease is a common fish parasitosis caused by Clinostomum species. Clinostomum complanatum is a cosmopolitan trematode with a complex life-cycle and low host specificity. Due toExpand
Occurrence and description of Clinostomum complanatum (Rudolphi, 1819) metacercariae in freshwater fishes from Gheshlagh basin, West of Iran
Clinostomum spp. have a long uncertain taxonomic history which also have attracted great attentions. This could be due to their zoonotic potential and the presence of yellow grubs in the fish as aExpand
Characterization of Clinostomum sp. (Trematoda: Clinostomidae) infecting cormorants in south-eastern Australia.
TLDR
The ITS sequences obtained from the specimens in the present study were most similar to those belonging to C. phalacrocoracis (never reported in Australia), which suggests they are the same as the Clinostomum sp. Expand
Occurrence and molecular characterization of Clinostomum complanatum (Trematoda: Clinostomidae) in freshwater fishes caught from Turkey
TLDR
First combined morphologic and molecular data on C. complanatum infecting Turkish freshwater fishes is provided and reveals three and nine polymorphic sites leading to detection of four and five haplotypes within the related gene regions, respectively. Expand
Clinostomum album n. sp. and Clinostomum marginatum (Rudolphi, 1819), parasites of the great egret Ardea alba L. from Mississippi, USA
TLDR
Members of the genus Clinostomum Leidy, 1856, colloquially known as yellow grubs, are cosmopolitan parasites of piscivorous birds, freshwater snails, fish and amphibians, and are endemic on most commercial catfish operations in North America. Expand
Alternative Development Strategies of Clinostomum chabaudi (Digenea) Metacercariae in Frog Hosts (Hyperolius spp.)
TLDR
It is hypothesize that the presence of alternative development modes is an adaptation of C. chabaudi to cope with resource limitation within host-produced cysts. Expand
Patterns of Clinostomum marginatum infection in fishes and amphibians: integration of field, genetic, and experimental approaches.
TLDR
This study highlights the importance of integrating field surveys, genetic tools, and experimental approaches to better understand the ecology of host-parasite interactions, and tested the susceptibility of two amphibian hosts to varying levels of cercariae exposure and measured metacarcariae growth over time.

Clinostomum poteae n. sp. (Digenea: Clinostomidae), in the trachea of a double-crested cormorant Phalacrocorax auritus Lesson, 1831 and molecular data linking the life-cycle stages of Clinostomum album Rosser, Alberson, Woodyard, Cunningham, Pote & Griffin, 2017 in Mississippi, USA
Clinostomum spp. (Digenea: Clinostomidae) are a group of trematodes commonly found in the buccal cavity and oesophagus of a variety of piscivorous birds. The metacercariae, colloquially known asExpand
Morphological and Molecular Characterization of Clinostomum detruncatum (Trematoda: Clinostomidae) Metacercariae Infecting Synbranchus marmoratus
TLDR
Both neighbor-joining (NJ) and maximum likelihood (ML) trees showed 2 clear separate clusters grouping together the species from the Palearctic region and those from the Nearctic/Neotropical regions. Expand
A Combined Morphometric and Molecular Approach to Identifying Metacercariae of Euclinostomum heterostomum (Digenea: Clinostomidae)
TLDR
The isolates of Euclinostomum obtained in this study form a single, monophyletic group separate from recently published data from Euclinstomum sp. Expand

Two species of Clinostomum previously described from Australia, C. hornum from Botaurus poiciloptilus (Australian bittern) and Nycticorax caledonicus (Nankeen night heron) and C. australiense from Pelecanus conspicillatus (Australian pelican), are redescribed and recognised as valid species. Expand

Distribution, Abundance, and Genetic Diversity of Clinostomum spp. Metacercariae (Trematoda: Digenea) in a Modified Ozark Stream System
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the adjunct man-made pond has created an ecological situation that brings the cercariae of this parasite into contact with novel stream salamander hosts, and fishes and salamanders at this site are primarily infected with Clinostomum marginatum. Expand
Morphological and Molecular Differentiation of Clinostomum complanatum and Clinostomum marginatum (Digenea: Clinostomidae) Metacercariae and Adults
TLDR
Recent data confirm the validity of the junior species, C. marginatum, by ∼1% differences in its 18S rDNA sequences and identified basic morphometrics in metacercariae that may be useful for discriminating the species. Expand
Helminth Parasites of the Leopard Frog Lithobates sp. Colima (Amphibia: Ranidae) from Colima, Mexico
TLDR
The semiaquatic habits of this species of frog and the availability of particular feeding resources appear to determine the helminth composition and infection levels; however, co-speciation events also play an important role structuring these helminths communities. Expand

TLDR
Sequencing the rRNA confirmed the morphological similarity between adults from the grey heron and the metacercarial stage from tilapia, and a level of genetic similarity with the other previously sequenced Clinostomum spp. Expand

TLDR
Although newts are opportunistic predators with a broad prey base, this appears not to play a major role in structuring the helminth infracommunity, and significant correlations existed between newt length and Brillouin's index, evenness, species richness, and Helminth intensity. Expand
