Intraspecific genetic differentiation of the trematode Skrjabinolecithum spasskii and its phylogenetic relationships with other species of the family Haploporidae were studied by comparing the nucleotide sequences of a part of the 28S rRNA gene and the ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 rDNA region. Trematodes were isolated from so-iuy mullet Liza haematocheila fishes collected in rivers of Primorye and flathead grey mullet Mugil cephalus fishes collected in water bodies of Vietnam (27 fishes in total).

Population genetic analysis of trematode Parasaccocoelium mugili Zhukov, 1971 (Haploporidae Nicoll, 1914) from the Russian Far East and Vietnam based on ribosomal ITS and mitochondrial COI gene partial sequence data

Molecular identification of Parasaccocoelium mugili from the Kievka River, Primorye and from Vietnam was performed by analysis of 28S rDNA sequences, and mitochondrial COI gene sequence data analysis revealed fixed nucleotide and amino acid substitutions and supported the existence of two genetically different groups associated with geographical origin.

First rDNA sequence data for Haplosplanchnus pachysomus (Digenea: Haplosplanchnidae) ex Mugil cephalus from the Black Sea, and molecular evidence for cryptic species within Haplosplanchnus pachysomus (Digenea: Haplosplanchnidae) in Palaearctic and Indo-West Pacific regions

The results indicate that H. pachysomus from Spain and the Black Sea and from Vietnam and Australia can presently be considered as two cryptic species, one in Palaearctic and one in Indo-West Pacific regions.

New species of Parasaccocoelium (Haploporidae) and new genus Pseudohaplosplanchnus (Haplosplanchnidae) from mullet fish in the Far East of Russia and Vietnam: morphological and molecular data.

A description and the molecular characterization of two new species in the Haploporidae and Haplosplanchnidae families are provided herein. Parasaccocoelium armatum n. sp. was collected from the

Morphometric and molecular analyses of Skrjabinolecithum pyriforme n. sp. (Digenea: Haploporidae) in mullet fish from the Primorsky Region, Russia

Results of molecular analysis confirmed that the new species found in the intestines of Liza haematocheila and Mugil cephalus belongs to Skrjabinolecithum on the basis of close relationships with S. spasskii-type species.

Unexpected morphological and molecular diversity of trematode (Haploporidae: Forticulcitinae) parasites of mullets from the ocean Pacific coasts in Middle America

Three new genera and four new species from subfamily Forticulcitinae are described from the intestines of white mullet and flathead grey mullet collected in 27 localities across a wide geographical range on Pacific Ocean slopes comprising three countries in Middle America.

Morphometric and molecular analyses of Carassotrema koreanum Park 1938 and Elonginurus mugilus Lu 1995 (Digenea: Haploporidae) Srivastava, 1937 from the Russian Far East and Vietnam

Phylogenetic analysis based on combined ITS2 ribosomal DNA (rDNA) and 28S rRNA indicated that C. koreanum and E. mugilus belong to the subfamily Waretrematinae and are closely related to the genera Skrjabinolecithum and Parasaccocoelium, respectively.

Two New Species of Saccocoelioides (Digenea: Haploporidae) with Phylogenetic Analysis of the Family, Including Species of Saccocoelioides from North, Middle, and South America

Molecular data call into question some existing species identifications in Saccocoelioides and reveal that molecular tools combined with traditional taxonomy are required for accurately identifying species in the genus.

Morphometric and molecular analyses of two digenean species from the mullet: Skrjabinolecithum spinosum n. sp. from the Russian southern Far East and Unisaccus tonkini n. sp. from Vietnam

Bayesian phylogenetic analysis, based on combined data of internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) and partial 28S rRNA gene sequences, confirmed the validity of S. spinosum n.



Review of haploporid (Trematoda) genera with ornate muscularisation in the region of the oral sucker, including four new species and a new genus

Analysis of sequence data of a c.2,500 bp region of the 3′ end of 18S, the entire ITS region and the 5′ endof the 28S revealed that Spiritestis and Capitimitta are not as closely related as some morphological features would suggest and are probably not the closest relative of each other.

Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Microphalloidea Ward, 1901 (Trematoda: Digenea)

It is demonstrated that the Microphalloidea, as represented by the present data-set, consists of three main clades corresponding to the families Lecithodendriidae, Microphallidae and Pleurogenidae + Prosthogonimidae.

Phylogeography of the flathead mullet Mugil cephalus in the north-west Pacific as inferred from the mtDNA control region.

The population genetic structure and historical demography of the flathead mullet Mugil cephalus were investigated using the mtDNA control region (CR) sequences of 126 individuals collected from seven locations in the north-west Pacific between 2005 and 2007, revealing two populations and Japan appears to be a contact zone between lineages 1 and 2.

Observations on the life-cycles of two haploporid trematodes, Carassotrema bengalense Rekharani & Madhavi, 1985 and Saccocoelioides martini Madhavi, 1979

The life-cycles of two species of haploporid trematodes, Carassotrema bengalense Rekharani & Madhavi, 1985 and Saccocoelioides martini Madhavi, 1979, are illustrated. The molluscan host of the two

Genetic population structure of Liza haematocheilus in north-western Pacific detected by amplified fragment length polymorphism markers

The incongruence between nuclear groups and mitochondrial lineage suggests the three distinct lineages do not represent cryptic species and the presence of divergent mitochondrial lineages in the same sample is a result of secondary contact after an extended period of isolation.
