Chaari M., Derbel H. & Neifar L. 2011. — Oesophagotrema mediterranea n. gen., n. sp. (Platyhelminthes, Digenea, Zoogonidae), parasite of the needlefish Tylosurus acus imperialis (Beloniformes, Belonidae) from off Tunisia. Zoosystema 33 (3): 281–286. ABSTRACT Oesophagotrema mediterranea n. gen., n. sp. (Digenea, Zoogonidae) is described from the needlefish Tylosurus acus imperialis (Beloniformes, Belonidae) off the Tunisian coast. Oesophagotrema n. gen. is distinguished from all other… 
Gaharitrema droneni n. gen., n. sp. (Digenea: Zoogonidae) from the Pudgy Cuskeel, Spectrunculus grandis (Ophidiiformes: Ophidiidae), from Deep Waters Off Oregon, with Updated Keys to Zoogonid Subfamilies and Genera
TLDR
This study documents the third family of digeneans (Zoogonidae) known to parasitize S. grandis, and it is a new host record (i.e., the first zoogonid reported from this host species).
Lecithostaphylus tylosuri sp. nov. (Digenea, Zoogonidae) from the digestive tract of the needlefish Tylosurus acus imperialis (Teleostei, Belonidae)
Lecithostaphylus tylosuri sp. nov. (Digenea, Zoogonidae) specimen were collected from the digestive tract of Tylosurus acus imperialis (Teleostei, Belonidae) caught off the eastern coast of Tunisia.
Morphometrics and levels of infections of digeneans in belonid fish species off the coast of Tunisia
TLDR
Three species of belonid fish caught off the eastern Tunisian coast were infected with eight species of Digenea, with new host records for B. svetovidovi and Tetrochetus coryphaenae and S. pacificus represent new host and geographical records.
Sclerodistomoides pacificus Kamegai, 1971 (Sclerodistomoididae Gibson & Bray, 1979) and Tetrochetus coryphaenae Yamaguti, 1934 (Accacoeliidae Odhner, 1911), two rarely reported digeneans from Tylosurus acus imperialis (Rafinesque) (Belonidae), and a list of helminth parasites of Tylosurus acus (Lacé
TLDR
Two rarely reported digenean parasites are redescribed: Sclerodistomoides pacificus and T. coryphaenae represent new host and geographical records for T. a.
Parasitic infections in the Mediterranean needlefish Tylosurus acus imperialis (Teleostei: Belonidae) off Tunisian coast
TLDR
This study provides first information on parasitic infections in the Mediterranean needlefish T. acus imperialis off Tunisia and shows how parasites can be used to understand phylogeny, biology and ecology of fish host and also as bioindicators of water quality.
Porangatus ceteyus n. gen., n. sp. (Digenea: Zoogonidae): A Parasite of Hoplosternum littorale (Pisces: Callichthyidae) from Amazonas State, Brazil
ABSTRACT: Porangatus ceteyus n. gen., n. sp. is erected to accommodate some specimens of Digenea recovered from the intestine of Hoplosternum littorale. Hosts were collected in lakes located near the
A review of the Zoogonidae (Digenea: Microphalloidea) from fishes of the waters around New Caledonia, with the description of Overstreetia cribbi n. sp.
New and published reports of zoogonid digeneans from New Caledonian waters are recorded, including a description of Overstreetia cribbi n. sp. from Atherinomorus lacunosus. This species differs from
The Mediterranean: high discovery rates for a well-studied trematode fauna
TLDR
The descriptions of a large number of new taxa since 2000 indicate that focused efforts have resulted in a high discovery rate (2.4 species per year) and combined morphological and molecular methods promise more reliable estimates of digenean diversity in this region.

Description of a New Digenean (Zoogonidae) Genus and Species from Sub-Antarctic Fish Patagonotothen tessellata
TLDR
The female genital system structure indicates the new taxon belongs in the subfamily Lepidophyllinae (Zoogonidae), and the most important taxonomic features are the spined tegument, lack of enlarged circumoral spines, gonads arranged in tandem, long caeca, vitelline follicles extending from the level of the ventral sucker to the posterior end of anterior testis, and a Y-shaped excretory vesicle.

TLDR
Specimens of the fishes Scarus ghobban Forsskål (Scaridae) and Crenimugil crenilabis Forsskál (Mugilidae) were caught in the Red Sea off the coast of Sharm El-Sheikh, South Sinai, Egypt and were found to harbour intestinal trematodes.

TLDR
Two major types of lesions were observed: large ulcerated, active granulomas, consisting of a central cavity containing a single or multiple live worms; and many smaller chronic fibrous submucosal nodules, which were identified within some chronic nodules.
Digenetic trematodes of the genus Clinostomum Leidy, 1856 (Digenea: Clinostomidae) from birds of Queensland, Australia, including C. wilsoni n. sp. from Egretta intermedia
TLDR
Two species of Clinostomum previously described from Australia, C. hornum from Botaurus poiciloptilus (Australian bittern) and Nycticorax caledonicus (Nankeen night heron) and C. australiense from Pelecanus conspicillatus (Australian pelican), are redescribed and recognised as valid species.
