Amphistomiasis, a neglected trematode infectious disease of ruminants, is caused by numerous species of amphistomes belonging to six families under the Superfamily Paramphistomoidea. In the present study, four frequently used DNA markers, viz. nuclear ribosomal 28S (D1-D3 regions), 18S and ITS2 and mitochondrial COI genes, as well as sequence motifs from these genes were evaluated for their utility in species characterization of members of the amphistomes' Family Gastrothylacidae commonly… Expand
First genetic evidence for the presence of the rumen fluke Paramphistomum epiclitum in Pakistan.
TLDR
This work provides a validated species-specific marker of P. epiclitum and the first report of this parasite species from Pakistan and has implications for the diagnosis and control of rumen flukes in the region and the need for accurate species identification to understand parasite distribution and population genetics.

Molecular phylogeny of Cyclophyllidea (Cestoda: Eucestoda): an in-silico analysis based on mtCOI gene
TLDR
The authors' result suggests that the family Paruterinidae may represent a polyphyletic group and non-monophyly of Anoplocephalidae is suggested to be correlated with divergence in the host selection, as well as adding resolution to the existing phylogeny of the order. Expand
Differential diagnosis and molecular characterization of Hymenolepis nana and Hymenolepis diminuta (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea: Hymenolepididae) based on nuclear rDNA ITS2 gene marker
TLDR
In phylogenetic analysis of the evolutionary relationship between the two species as well as with other members of the family Hymenolepididae, the species causing human hymenolepiasis were found to be distantly related as they diverged independently from the ancestral lineage. Expand
First molecular assessment of the interrelationships of cladorchiid digeneans (Digenea: Paramphistomoidea), parasites of Neotropical fishes, including descriptions of three new species and new host and geographical records.
TLDR
The first molecular assessment of phylogenetic relationships of cladorchiid digeneans from freshwater fishes based on 28S rDNA, ITS2 and cox1 sequences reveals the subfamilies Dadayiinae Fukui, 1929 and Kalitrematinae Travassos, 1933 as non-monophyletic, whereas Dadaytrema TravASSos, 1931 represented by three species is monophyletics. Expand
Analysis of the complete Fischoederius elongatus (Paramphistomidae, Trematoda) mitochondrial genome
TLDR
The complete mt genome sequence of F. elongates should provide information for phylogenetic and epidemiological studies for F. lengates and the family Paramphistomidae. Expand
Loads of trematodes: discovering hidden diversity of paramphistomoids in Kenyan ruminants
TLDR
Paramphistomoids of domestic ruminants provide one of the most abundant sources of parasitic flatworm biomass, and because of the predilection of several species use Bulinus and Biomphalaria snail hosts, have interesting linkages with the biology of animal and human schistosomes to in Africa. Expand
A phylogenetic study of the cecal amphistome Zygocotyle lunata (Trematoda: Zygocotylidae), with notes on the molecular systematics of Paramphistomoidea
TLDR
The phylogenetic reconstructions of Paramphistomoidea revealed a complex scenario in the taxonomic composition of some amphistome families, which highlights a need for further integrative studies that will likely result in rearrangements of traditional morphology-based classifications. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Orthocoelium streptocoelium (Digenea: Paramphistomidae) for comparison with other digeneans
TLDR
O. streptocoelium is closely related to Paramphistomum cervi and Fischoederius elongates, which is in accordance with their relationships by taxonomy, and enriched the mitochondrial genome data of paramphistomes. Expand
A Universal Approach to Molecular Identification of Rumen Fluke Species Across Hosts, Continents, and Sample Types
TLDR
It is proposed that ITS-2 sequencing could be used as a universal tool for rumen fluke identification across host and parasite species from diverse technical and geographical origins and form the basis of an international reference database for accurate species identification. Expand
Morphology and Mitochondrial Genome of Fischoederius sp. 1 in Thailand
TLDR
Morphology and a full mitochondrial genome sequence of a rumen fluke species from South, Southeast, and East Asia are described and it is suggested that these duplicated sequences are the remnants of non-reciprocal recombination events caused by inverted repeats located between ND2 and ND1 mitochondrial genes.

Molecular characterization of pouched amphistome parasites (Trematoda: Gastrothylacidae) using ribosomal ITS2 sequence and secondary structures
TLDR
The study provides the molecular characterization based on primary sequence data of the rDNA ITS2 region of the gastrothylacid amphistome flukes and demonstrates the phylogenetic utility of the ITS2 sequence–secondary structure data for inferences at higher taxonomic levels. Expand
Molecular characterization of Gastrodiscoides hominis (Platyhelminthes: Trematoda: Digenea) inferred from ITS rDNA sequence analysis
TLDR
Using the use of molecular tools assisting the conventional diagnostic procedures, molecular characterization of G. hominis was found using PCR amplifications of rDNA ITS sequences, showing maximum similarity with the amphistome, Homalogaster paloniae (subfamily Paramphistominae). Expand
Utility of divergent domains of 28S ribosomal RNA in species discrimination of paramphistomes (Trematoda: Digenea: Paramphistomoidea)
TLDR
28S (D1–D3) rRNA provided a significant resolution of the taxa corroborating with the taxonomy of these flukes and thus proved to be more robust as a phylogenetic marker for lower levels than 18S rRNA. Expand

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the cox1 sequence data revealed strong statistical support for a clade containing O. viverrini and 2 other species of opisthorchid trematodes; O. felineus and Clonorchis sinsensis. Expand

Overall, COI sequences were superior to more commonly used ITS markers for delineating species of this important and taxonomically difficult pathogen. Expand
