The African freshwater fish of Cichlidae are parasitized by five genera of monogeneans belonging to Dactylogyridea. Ectoparasitic Scutogyrus, Onchobdella, and the highly diversified Cichlidogyrus represent three genera located on the gills, while the endoparasitic Enterogyrus and Urogyrus are located in the stomach and the urinary bladder, respectively. Representatives of four dactylogyridean genera (except for Urogyrus) were collected from seven cichlid species in West Africa. The aim of this… 
Molecular phylogeny of Neotropical monogeneans (Platyhelminthes: Monogenea) from catfishes (Siluriformes)
TLDR
The position of the Ancylodiscoidinae within a larger clade of dactylogyrids (ancyrocephalines) indicates that this subfamily does not represent a natural group and should be considered as a separate subfamily within the Dactylogsyridae.
Two new species of Cichlidogyrus (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae) parasitizing the gills of African cichlid fishes (Perciformes) from Senegal: morphometric and molecular characterization
TLDR
Two new species of Cichlidogyrus are described from the gills of three species of African cichlids collected from the Gambia River basin in the Niokolo-Koba National Park, Senegal on the basis of morphological differences in the male copulatory organs (MCOs) and apparent similarities in the SSU rDNA and ITS1 sequence data.
Monogeneans of West African Cichlid Fish: Evolution and Cophylogenetic Interactions
TLDR
The mapping of morphological characters of the haptor onto the parasite phylogenetic tree suggests that the attachment organ has evolved from a very simple form to a more complex one, and shed some light on the diversification process of Cichlidogyrus species parasitizing West African cichlids.
The Monogenean Parasite Fauna of Cichlids: A Potential Tool for Host Biogeography
TLDR
Host-switches and salinity transitions may be invoked to explain the pattern revealed by a preliminary morphological phylogeny of monogenean genera from Cichlidae and other selected Monogenea genera, rendering the parasite distribution explicable under both vicariance and dispersal.
Diversity and host specificity of monogenean gill parasites (Platyhelminthes) of cichlid fishes in the Bangweulu-Mweru ecoregion
TLDR
The parasite fauna in Bangweulu-Mweru is highly similar in species composition to Lake Kariba, but the same parasite species are more host-specific, probably because of hydrogeographical differences between the two regions.
A phylogeny of Cichlidogyrus spp. (Monogenea, Dactylogyridea) clarifies a host-switch between fish families and reveals an adaptive component to attachment organ morphology of this parasite genus
TLDR
This study provides new evidence supporting the hypothesis of the adaptive nature of haptor morphology within Cichlidogyrus, and demonstrates this adaptive component for the first time within the attachment organs of which were usually considered to be mainly phylogenetically constrained.
Monogenean parasites from the stomach of Oreochromis mossambicus from South Africa: two new species of Enterogyrus (Dactylogyridae: Ancyrocephalinae)
TLDR
Two new species of Enterogyrus coexisting in the stomach of the Mozambique tilapia, Oreochromis mossambicus, are described, representing new records for Africa resulting in a total number of 12 described valid species.
Six new dactylogyrid species (Platyhelminthes, Monogenea) from the gills of cichlids (Teleostei, Cichliformes) from the Lower Congo Basin
TLDR
The parasitefauna of Lower Congo has a higher affinity with the fauna of West African and nearby freshwater ecoregions than it has with fauna in other regions of the Congo Basin and Central Africa.

Molecular phylogeny of gill monogeneans (Platyhelminthes, Monogenea, Dactylogyridae) and colonization of Indo‐West Pacific butterflyfish hosts (Perciformes, Chaetodontidae)
TLDR
The positions of several other species of the Ancyrocephalinae, including freshwater species, at the base of the two clades provide strong evidence that the monogenean fauna did not result from a single colonization event, but rather that they have colonized their butterflyfish hosts independently at least twice.
A molecular phylogeny of the Dactylogyridae sensu Kritsky & Boeger (1989) (Monogenea) based on the D1-D3 domains of large subunit rDNA
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on the partial large subunit rDNA sequences of polyonchoinean monogeneans belonging to the Dactylogyridea and Monocotylidea revealed polyphyletic origins of the Ancyrocephalidae and An Cyrocephalinae, and appeared to follow the dispersal history of the Cyprinidae from Asia to Europe.
Phylogenetic relationships of the Dactylogyridae Bychowsky, 1933 (Monogenea: Dactylogyridea): the need for the systematic revision of the Ancyrocephalinae Bychowsky, 1937
TLDR
Classification of the Dactylogyridae needs to be revised as the non-monophyly of the group of species recently considered as members of Ancyrocephalinae, previously suggested by Kritsky & Boeger (1989) using the morphological characters is indicated.

The positions of several other species of the Ancyrocephalinae, including freshwater species, at the base of the two clades, provide strong evidence that the monogenean fauna did not result from a single colonization event, but rather that they have colonized their butterflyfish hosts independently at least twice.
Systematic revision of dactylogyridean parasites (Monogenea) from cichlid fishes in Africa, the Levant and Madagascar
TLDR
Systematic revision is made of the six dactylogyridean genera (Monogenea) described on African, Levantine and Malagasy cichlid fishes.

TLDR
Four new species of monogenean gill parasites belonging to Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 and considered as new species are described and distinguished by the shape and/or size of the sclerotised parts of the haptoral and copulatory complexes.
Regular ArticlesThe fossil record and biogeography of the Cichlidae (Actinopterygii: Labroidei)☆
TLDR
It is more probable that cichlids arose less than 65 million years ago, in the Early Tertiary, and crossed marine waters to attain their current distribution.
