Myzobdella Platensis (Hirundinida: Piscicolidae) is True Parasite of Blue Crabs (Crustacea: Portunidae)
TLDR
Evidence strongly suggests a parasitic interaction between the leech M. platensis and the blue crab C. bocourti, in which the former utilizes the latter as a site for cocoon deposition and possibly for dispersal similar to that proposed for Myzobdella lugubris in Callinectes sapidus in North America.

Monograph of the North American freshwater fish leeches (Oligochaeta: Hirudinida ; Piscicolidae) and molecular phylogeny of the family Piscicolidae
TLDR
The phylogeny of the Piscicolidae was analyzed from combined sequence data of 18S rDNA, cytochrome c oxidase sub unit I (CO-I), nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide dehydrogenase subunit I (ND-I) and morphological data using parsimony, and supported as a monophyletic group, the traditional subfamilies based on morphology were not supported.

Histological techniques for marine bivalve mollusks and crustaceans, 2nd edition
TLDR
This edition updates the Histological Techniques for Marine Bivalve Mollusks manual with additional chapters on molluscan and crustacean techniques, intended to serve as a guide for histological processing of shellfish. Expand
Infestation Dynamics and Histopathology of Two Species of Freshwater Leeches (Hirudinea: Piscicolidae) on Teleost Fish from Uruguay
TLDR
The infestation dynamics and histopathology of the freshwater leeches Myzobdella platensis and MyzOBdella uruguayensis on teleost fish from eastern Uruguay, Hoplias malabaricus and Rhamdia quelen (Siluriformes, Pimelodidae) were examined over a 2-yr period. Expand
Bryozoan fouling of the blue crab Callinectes sapidus at Beaufort, North Carolina
TLDR
Results indicate female crabs were significantly more fouled than males, which suggests that the prevalence and intensity of bryozoans are dominantly controlled by the migratory habits of the host, since female crabs spend more time in deeper waters of higher salinity where they are more likely to be fouled by bryozoan larvae.

Barnacle Fouling of the Blue Crab Callinectes Sapidus at Beaufort, North Carolina
TLDR
Results indicate female crabs were significantly more fouled than males, suggesting that the prevalence and intensity of barnacles are dominantly controlled by the migratory habits of the host, since female crabs spend more time in deeper waters of higher salinity, where they are more likely to be fouled by barnacle larvae.

Cocoon deposition on three crab species and fish parasitism by the leech Notostomum cyclostoma from deep fjords in northern British Columbia.
Cocoons of the sanguivorous piscicolid leech Notostomum cyclostoma (Johansson) were found on 3 crab species, Lithodes aequispina, Paralithodes camtschatica and Chionoecetes bairdifrom deep fjords inExpand
