We analyse the phylogenetic relationships and taxonomic status of hymenolepidid cestodes with rudimentary rostellum, parasitic in Holarctic shrews of the genus Sorex. These cestodes were previously termed as a ‘Ditestolepis clade’ and encompass eight genera: Diorchilepis, Ditestolepis, Ecrinolepis, Gulyaevilepis, Mathevolepis, Novobrachylepis, Spalania and Spasskylepis. Representatives of seven of these were available for molecular study, including type species of all seven genera… 

New cestode species of the genus Neoskrjabinolepis Spassky, 1947 (Cyclophyllidea: Hymenolepididae) from the Common Shrew (Sorex araneus L.) in Europe

The new species is characterised by ten rostellar hooks 37–40 μm long and possessing claw-like blades with crooked middle parts and well-developed epiphyseal thickenings of handles.

Cestode Diversity of Shrews on the Kamchatka Peninsula and Paramushir Island

The potential for endemic species and the unique characteristics of the cestode fauna on Kamchatka suggest that the peninsula may have been a refugium for shrews and their parasites in the last glacial maximum.

Cestodes of Shrews (Soricidae) in the Northern Caucasus

The first data on the cestode fauna of shrews in the North Caucasus, in particular, its western and central parts, are presented and it is shown that the tapeworms species diversity of the mesophilous host species (Sorex and Neomys) is higher compared to xerophile ones (Crocidura), amounting to 23 and four species, respectively.

Phylogeny of hymenolepidids (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea) from mammals: sequences of 18S rRNA and COI genes confirm major clades revealed by the 28S rRNA analyses

Two of the present analyses show that the basal relationships of the four mammalian clades are branching at the same polytomy with several hymenolepidids from birds (both terrestrial and aquatic), which may indicate a rapid radiation of the group, with multiple events of colonizations of mammalian hosts by avian parasites.
