Abstract An updated checklist of the monogenoids infecting Italian marine fish is provided, including seven new records (Diplectanum simile on Sciaena umbra; Diplectanum sp. on Scorpaena porcus; Lamellodiscus elegans, L. ergensi, L. fraternus on Diplodus vulgaris; L. virgula on Pagellus erythrinus; Pseudanthocotyloides heterocotyle on Engraulis encrasicolus). The number of monogenoidean species recorded in Italian marine ichtyofauna is therefore increased to 141, harboured by 93 host species. 
Nematodes found in the European anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus), a rare visitor to the Baltic Sea
The European anchovy, Engraulis encrasicolus (Linnaeus, 1758), enters the Baltic Sea only occasionally. Little is known about the parasites that inhabit this fish in the northern part of its natural
Metazoan parasites of brown meagre (Sciaena umbra L. 1758) caught near Gökçeada, Turkey
TLDR
It was determined that Paracryptogonimus aloysiae was the dominant parasite species of brown meagre with the prevalence of 66.04% in this region.
Microcotyle visa n. sp. (Monogenea: Microcotylidae), a gill parasite of Pagrus caeruleostictus (Valenciennes) (Teleostei: Sparidae) off the Algerian coast, Western Mediterranean
TLDR
This is the fourth member of the genus known to parasitise a sparid host and is distinguished from Microcotyle erythrini van Beneden & Hesse, 1863, a congener infesting sparids, on the basis of morphological and molecular differences.
Towards the resolution of the Microcotyle erythrini species complex: description of Microcotyle isyebi n. sp. (Monogenea, Microcotylidae) from Boops boops (Teleostei, Sparidae) off the Algerian coast
TLDR
The results suggest that a molecular re-evaluation of other M. erythrini-like specimens from various fish hosts could reveal the existence of additional parasite biodiversity.
Monogeneans of fish near Gökçeada, Turkey
TLDR
In this study, performed in April, July, September, and October 2011 and January 2012 in the northeastern Aegean Sea near Gokceada in Turkey, 14 species of monogenean trematodes and new records for the study area and Turkey are reported.
First Report of Several Myxosporean (Myxozoa) and Monogenean Parasites from Fish Species off Sinop Coasts of the Black Sea
TLDR
All parasite species identified are new records for Turkish parasite fauna and S. rebae is a new myxosporean parasite of the Black Sea fauna.
Parasitological and Comparative Pathological Studies on Monogenean Infestation of Cultured Sea Bream (Sparus aurata, Spariidae) in Egypt
TLDR
A total of 400 Sea bream (Sparus aurata) were sampled from a private fish farm in Ezbet Elborg area, Domietta province, Egypt and were investigated in terms of monogenean parasites, revealing different pathological changes in the affected bronchial tissue.
Diclidophora luscae (Monogenea: Diclidophoridae) in pouting, Trisopterus luscus (Linnaeus, 1758) from the northeast Atlantic; epidemiology, morphology, molecular and phylogenetic analysis.
TLDR
For the first time, data on the infection parameters is shown, highlighting the importance of including this parasite in the monitoring plans for a holistic approach with possible effects for the management of pouting resources.
Parasite infection in Serranus cabrilla (Perciformes, Serranidae): histopathological aspects and new host record for nematode genus Philometra from Aegean Sea, Turkey
TLDR
It is suggested that the highest rates of parasite infection occur in larger sized fish, hermaphrodite individuals and during April month, which is the first record of the effects of Philometra sp.
Distribution of gill Monogenean parasites from Oreochromis niloticus (Linn, 1758) in man-made Lake Ayam I, Cte dIvoire
TLDR
The prevalence and intensity of the infection of these parasites were highest in the long rainy season and lowest in the dry season; the large sized fishes were more subjected to parasitic infection than smaller ones; and no sex effect was observed on the infestation of O. niloticus.

Antigenic activity of Diplectanum aequans (Monogenea) in sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L.) held under different oxygenation conditions
TLDR
The influence of oxygenation on the immune response of sea bass to the branchial parasite Diplectanum aequans was studied, and the sea bass stalled in hyperoxygenation conditions demonstrated a greater antigenic activity and fewer parasites than those reared in normal aeration did.
A Parasitological Survey of European Sea Bass (Dicentrarchus Labrax) and Gilthead Sea Bream (Sparus Aurata) Cultured in Italy
TLDR
This work presents a meta-analyses of the prophylactic and statistical literature reviews that show clear trends in prognosis for canine coronavirus infection and death in Bologna and Ozzano Emilia over the past 50 years.
Monogenoids from Freshwater Fish in Italy, with Comments on Alien Species
TLDR
Parasitological data of monogenoid on native and alien fish demonstrate the ability of alien monogenoids to colonize native hosts.
METAZOAN PARASITIC INFECTIONS OF SWORDFISH (XIPHIAS GLADIUS L., 1758) FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA AND ATLANTIC GIBRALTAR WATERS: IMPLICATIONS FOR STOCK ASSESSMENT
TLDR
Data so far obtained in the parasite fauna of swordfish from Mediterranean and Gibraltar area suggesting that the last one could be a mixing area is given, concerning the possible use of some parasite taxa and their infection levels as biological tags for swordfish stocks characterization in European waters.
Metazoan parasites of grey mullets (Teleostea: Mugilidae) from the Mistras Lagoon (Sardinia, western Mediterranean)*
TLDR
The data obtained show the richness of the parasite fauna of grey mullets from the Mistras Lagoon, providing additional environmental information on this body of water.
Mass mortality in wild greater amberjack (Seriola dumerili) infected by Zeuxapta seriolae (Monogenea: Heteraxinidae) in the Jonian Sea
TLDR
The results of this investigation suggest that massive infections of Z. seriolae may affect the health performance of amberjacks and cause mortality in offshore and inshore breeding systems.
Influence of temperature on the hatching of eggs of Diplectanum aequans, a parasite of sea bass
TLDR
Development is not completely inhibited at 5 ‡C as the eggs can, at least partially, go on maturing and will subsequently hatch as soon as higher temperatures are encountered.
Effect of low environmental temperature on embryonic development and egg hatching of Diplectanum aequans (Monogenea, Diplectanidae) infecting European sea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax
TLDR
Results show that eggs of the parasite are able to survive at 5°C, with a percentage that decreases as the incubation time at5°C increases, reducing the rate of larval hatching.
FIRST REPORT OF GYRODACTYLUS SPP. (PLATYHELMINTHES: MONOGENEA) IN THE WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN SEA: MOLECULAR AND MORPHOLOGICAL DESCRIPTIONS
The Gyrodactylus spp. fauna on species of gobies, Pomatoschistus, Gobiusculus, and Knipowitschia (Gobiidae: Teleostei), from the western Mediterranean and Adriatic seas is strikingly similar to that
Dehydration is more effective for the control of embryonic development and larval hatching of Diplectanum aequans (Monogenea, Diplectanidae) than formalin and trichlorphon
TLDR
Embryonic development and larval hatching of the monogenean Diplectanum aequans, gill parasite of sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax, was studied in relation to different prophylactic treatments and showed that 300 μL L−1 formalin and dehydration treatments were able to reduce larvalHatching significantly.
