Abstract: Primisanguis caribbeanensis n. gen., n. sp. (Digenea: Aporocotylidae) infects the stoplight parrotfish, Sparisoma viride (Bonnaterre, 1788), (Labridae: Scarinae) in the Caribbean Sea off La Parguera (17°58′26″N, 67°02′47″W), Puerto Rico. It is most easily distinguished from other nominal aporocotylids by the combination of having an adult body that is approximately 5–10 times longer than wide, a sinistral posterolateral body protuberance, tegumental body spines that are straight… Expand
Two New Genera of Fish Blood Flukes (Digenea: Aporocotylidae) from Catfishes in the Peruvian Amazon
TLDR
This is the first report of a fish blood fluke infecting a member of Auchenipteridae and first proposal of a new genus of blood flukes (Schistosomatoidea) from South America in 64 yr. Expand
Blood Flukes (Digenea: Aporocotylidae) of Epipelagic Lamniforms: Redescription of Hyperandrotrema cetorhini from Basking Shark (Cetorhinus maximus) and Description of a New Congener from Shortfin Mako Shark (Isurus oxyrinchus) off Alabama
TLDR
The results demonstrate that ecologically related (epipelagic, marine, and phylogenetically related (Lamniformes) definitive hosts are infected by morphologically similar (congeneric) fish blood flukes. Expand
Cardicola beveridgei n. sp. (Digenea: Aporocotylidae) from the mangrove jack, Lutjanus argentimaculatus (Perciformes: Lutjanidae), and C. bullardi n. sp. from the Australian spotted mackerel, Scomberomorus munroi (Perciformes: Scombridae), from the northern Great Barrier Reef.
TLDR
Two new species from the Great Barrier Reef region are described, namely Cardicola beveridgei n. Expand
Unique ultrastructural characteristics of the tegument of the digenean blood fluke Aporocotyle simplex Odhner, 1900 (Digenea: Aporocotylidae), a parasite of flatfishes
TLDR
The results suggest that aporocotylid spines arise from within the sarcoplasm of the boss diagonal muscles, which is the first record of any digenean with so-called ‘sunken’ spines. Expand
Eurytrema coelomaticum: updated morphology of adult worms using advanced microscopy experiments.
TLDR
The knowledge of the adult structural organization of E. coelomaticum was improved and this work has contributed to propose new morphological criteria to evaluate the effects of antiparasitic drugs on flukes of medical and veterinary importance. Expand

New Species of Cardicola (Digenea: Aporocotylidae) from Heart of Atlantic Croaker, Micropogonias undulatus (Perciformes: Sciaenidae), of the South Atlantic Bight
TLDR
The new species is the second named aporocotylid from a littoral fish of the South Atlantic Bight and the fifth aporodactylid species reported from fishes of the northwestern Atlantic Ocean. Expand
A New Species of cardicola Short, 1953 (Digenea: Aporocotylidae) from the Heart and Branchial Vessels of Two Surfperches (Perciformes: Embiotocidae) in the Eastern Pacific Ocean Off California
  • S. Bullard
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Journal of parasitology
  • 2010
TLDR
The new species most closely resembles Cardicola ambrosioi Braicovich, Etchegoin, Timi, and Sardella, 2006, which infects the blood vessels of the gill and liver of Brazilian flathead, Percophis brasiliensis Quoy and Gaimard, 1825 (Perciformes: PerCophidae), in the southwestern Atlantic Ocean off Argentina.

Littorellicola billhawkinsi n. gen., n. sp. (Digenea: Aporocotylidae) from the myocardial lacunae of Florida pompano, Trachinotus carolinus (Carangidae) in the Gulf of Mexico; with a comment on the interrelationships and functional morphology of intertrabecular aporocotylids.
  • S. Bullard

  • Parasitology international
  • 2010
TLDR
The new species appears host specific to Florida pompano because no conspecific infection was detected in 134 carangids of 8 species in 4 genera captured nearby the type locality and supports the notion that elongated, "thread-like" aporocotylids with lateral spine rows are seemingly well-adapted for infecting myocardial lacunae or embedding in the myocardium of their definitive fish hosts.

TWO NEW SPECIES OF CARDICOLA (DIGENEA: SANGUINICOLIDAE) IN DRUMS (SCIAENIDAE) FROM MISSISSIPPI AND LOUISIANA
TLDR
Two new species of Cardicola (Digenea: Sanguinicolidae) are described from the heart of drums in and off Mississippi and Louisiana and each of the 2 flukes infected only 1 host species despite the hosts being sympatric. Expand
Blood Flukes (Digenea: Aporocotylidae) of Stingrays (Myliobatiformes: Dasyatidae): Orchispirium heterovitellatum From Himantura imbricata in the Bay of Bengal and a New Genus and Species of Aporocotylidae From Dasyatis sabina in the Northern Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
The discovery of a second species representing a second genus of Aporocotylidae in diamond stingrays (Dasyatidae) suggests that Batoidea is an undersampled host group for aporocOTylid infections. Expand
An exceptionally rich complex of Sanguinicolidae von Graff, 1907 (Platyhelminthes : Trematoda) from Siganidae, Labridae and Mullidae (Teleostei : Perciformes) from the Indo-West Pacific Region
TLDR
An unprecedented radiation of sanguinicolid blood flukes from two species of Labridae and seven species of Mullidae are described, with 13 new species characterised solely by molecular sequences and three putative species for which morphological data is available but for which molecular data is not. Expand
Cardicola Short, 1953 and Braya n. gen. (Digenea : Sanguinicolidae) from five families of tropical Indo-Pacific fishes
TLDR
Results from morphological comparisons and molecular analyses suggest the presence of 18 putative species; 11 are described on the basis of combined morphological and molecular data and seven are not because they are characterised solely by molecular sequences or to few morphological specimens.
