We propose Listrocephalos n. gen. (Monogenea: Capsalidae: Entobdellinae) for 2 new capsalid species that infect the skin of 2 species of diamond stingrays (Dasyatidae) in the Gulf of California. We also provide additional observations on 2 previously described capsalid species, which infect the external body surface of stingrays and are currently in Entobdella Blainville in Lamarck, 1818, and transfer them to the proposed new genus. The members of this genus, Listrocephalos corona (Hargis, 1955… Expand
Neoentobdella gen.nov. for species of Entobdella Blainville in Lamarck, 1818 [Monogenea, Capsalidae, Entobdellinae] from stingray hosts, with descriptions of two new species
The knowledge that entobdelline (capsalid) monogeneans formerly in Entobdella fall into two natural groupings provides the background to this paper. It is proposed to retain Entobdella for E.Expand
A new species of Heterocotyle (Monogenea: Monocotylidae), a gill parasite of the diamond stingray Hypanus dipterurus (Myliobatiformes: Dasyatidae) from the Peruvian coastal zone
A new monogenean, Heterocotyle margaritae n. sp. (Monocotylidae: Heterocotylinae), is described based on specimens collected from the gills of the diamond stingray, Hypanus dipterurus (Jordan &Expand
Redescription of Allobenedenia dischizosepta (Suriano, 1975) n. comb. (Monogenoidea: Capsalidae: Trochopodinae) from the Gills of Argentine Sea Basses (Acanthistius) in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean
Allobenedenia dischizosepta differs from its congeners by having 5 haptoral loculi, accessory sclerites that lack a conspicuous dorsal protuberance and that are weakly bifid, by posssesing robust anterior hamuli that are strongly recurved for half of their total length. Expand
Redescription and New Host Record of Capsala laevis (Monogenoidea: Capsalidae: Capsalinae) from Gill of Roundscale Spearfish, Tetrapturus georgii (Perciformes: Istiophoridae) in the Northwestern Atlantic Ocean
This represents the first record of any parasite from the recently taxonomically resurrected roundscale spearfish, long considered by some as a junior subjective synonym of white marlin, Tetrapturus albidus Poey, 1860 and, concomitantly, a new host record for Capsalidae Baird, 1853. Expand
Monogenoidean parasites of the gill lamellae of the sheepshead Archosargus probatocephalus (Walbaum) (Perciformes: Sparidae) from the Indian River Lagoon, Florida, with descriptions of four new species of Euryhaliotrema Kritsky & Boeger, 2002 (Dactylogyridae)
Examination of the gill lamellae of three sheepshead Archosargus probatocephalus (Walbaum) from the Indian River Lagoon in Florida revealed six species of Monogenoidea: Microcotyle archosargiExpand
Revision of the amphiamerican Neotetraonchus Bravo-Hollis, 1968 (Monogenoidea: Dactylogyridae), with a description of N. vegrandis n. sp. from the gill lamellae of the blue sea catfish Ariopsis guatemalensis (Siluriformes: Ariidae) off the Pacific Coast of Mexico
Morphological similarities between species of Neotetraonchus suggest the likely presence of geminate species pairs flanking the Isthmus of Panama. Expand
Hexabothriids of Devil Rays (Mobulidae): New Genus and Species from Gill of Mobula hypostoma in the Northern Gulf of Mexico and Redescription of a Congener From Mobula rochebrunei in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean
Abstract: A new species of Hexabothriidae, Mobulicola enantiomorphica n. gen., n. sp., is described on the basis of specimens collected from the gill of a lesser devil ray, Mobula hypostomaExpand
A New Neocalceostomatid (Monogenoidea) from the Gills of the Blackfin Sea Catfish, Arius jella (Siluriformes: Ariidae), In the Bay of Bengal, India
Thysanotohaptor is differentiated from the other known neocalceostomatid genera by its species having multiple postgermarial testes, lacking a transverse bar associated with the ventral anchor pair, and possessing a disc-shaped haptor with a pleated marginal frill. Expand
First report of gastrocotylinean post-oncomiracidia (Platyhelminthes: Monogenoidea: Heteronchoinea) on gills of flyingfish (Exocoetidae), snapper (Lutjanidae), dolphinfish (Coryphaenidae), and amberjack (Carangidae) from the Gulf of Mexico: decoy hosts and the dilution effect.
These comparatively non-susceptible "decoy hosts" apparently dilute the susceptible fish-host population and by intercepting infective larvae (oncomiracidia) decrease the abundance of parasites on their typical hosts. Expand
Skin lesions on yellowfin tuna Thunnus albacares from Gulf of Mexico outer continental shelf: Morphological, molecular, and histological diagnosis of infection by a capsalid monogenoid.
The present study comprises the first published report of this parasite from yellowfin tuna captured in the Gulf of Mexico-NW Atlantic Ocean Basin, confirmation of its infection on the skin (rather than on a parasitic copepod), and the first molecular data for this capsaline. Expand


A new genus of monogenean parasites (Capsalidae: Benedeniinae) from stingrays (Rajiformes: Dasyatidae) with a description of a new species from the long-tailed stingray Himantura uarnak Forsskål from Queensland, Australia
The presence of haptoral papillae, noted previously in some species of Entobdella, perhaps indicates that the new genus is more closely related to entobdellids than to benedeniids. Expand
Spermatophores in the Monogenean Entobdella diadema Monticelli from the skin of sting-rays, with a note on the taxonomy of the parasite
Entobdella diadema produces spermatophores from a pair of follicular glands lying one on each side of the body alongside the main nerve cord, and the secretion of these glands is stored in aExpand
A revision of Neobenedenia Yamaguti, 1963 (Monogenea: Capsalidae) including a redescription of N. melleni (MacCallum, 1927) Yamaguti, 1963
The generic diagnosis is amended to include previously unused characters like the path of tendons in the haptor from extrinsic muscles in the body, the presence and form of a marginal valve, the shape of the anterior attachment organs, and the arrangement of musculature at the posterior end of the penis sac. Expand
Diversity of reproductive behaviour in platyhelminth parasites: insemination in some benedeniine (capsalid) monogeneans
In specimens of Benedeniella macrocolpa and B, posterocolpa, in which the male reproductive system was functional and the female system not fully developed, the everted cirrus was seen to be lodged in the parasite's own uterus, with, in some individuals, the tip of the cirrus inside the ootype. Expand
A revision of Benedenia Diesing, 1858 including a redescription of B. sciaenae (van Beneden, 1856) Odhner, 1905 and recognition of Menziesia Gibson, 1976 (Monogenea: Capsalidae)
Benedenia Diesing, 1858, a genus of capsalid (benedeniine) monogeneans, is redefined and the generic diagnosis is amended to accommodate species that display some variation in reproductive anatomy, especially of the female system. Expand
The life cycle of the monogenean Entobdella soleae , a skin parasite of the common sole
The life cycle of Entobdella soleae , a monogenean skin-parasite of a marine bottom-living flatfish ( Solea solea ) has been described and related to the habits of the host, which buries itself inExpand
Monogenetic trematodes of some Gulf of Mexico fishes.
This paper treats several species belonging to the subfamily TETRAONCHINAE Monticelli, 1903 and is a continuation of the data concerning members of the superfamily GYRODACTYLOIDEA Johnston and Tiegs, 1922 obtained during a recently concluded study of these ectoparasites. Expand
The migration of the monogenean Entobdella soleae on the surface of its host, Solea solea
It has been confirmed experimentally that after invasion of the upper surface of the common sole by oncomiracidia of the monogenean skin parasite Entobdella soleae, the post-larvae migrate to the lower surface. Expand
