The systematic position of the Collyricloides massanae, a rare cyst-dwelling parasite, located on intestinal wall of European birds and rodents, have always been controversial. Based on newly obtained sequences of the 28 sDNA of C. massanae from avian and rodent host from Central Europe, and on the previously published sequences of several genera and families among Microphalloidea, we evaluate its taxonomic position and the phylogenetic relationships within the genera Collyriclum Kossack, 1911… Expand
The systematic position and structure of the genus Leyogonimus Ginetsinskaya, 1948 (Platyhelminthes: Digenea) with comments on the taxonomy of the superfamily Microphalloidea Ward, 1901
The taxonomic position and phylogenetic relationships between the type-species L. polyoon and L. postgonoporus are investigated and the Leyogonimidae Dollfus, 1951 should be recognized as a synonym of the Pleurogenidae. Expand
Phylogenetic Position of Pleurogenoides Species (Plagiorchiida: Pleurogenidae) from the Duodenum of Indian Skipper Frog, Euphlyctis Cyanophlyctis (Amphibia: Dicroglossidae) Inhabiting the Western Ghats, India
Phylogenetic analyses showed that P. cyanophlycti and P. euphlyCTi cluster according to their vertebrate host and revealed an important congruence between the phylogenetic trees of Pleurogenoides and of their vertebrates hosts. Expand
Five new morphological types of virgulate and microcotylous xiphidiocercariae based on morphological and molecular phylogenetic analyses.
The phylogenetic position of most xiphidiocercariae from subgroups Cercariae virgulae and Cercariae microcotylae remains unknown or unclear, even at the family level. In this paper, we studied theExpand
Phylogenetic position of the family Orientocreadiidae within the superfamily Plagiorchioidea (Trematoda) based on partial 28S rDNA sequence
The phylogenetic position of this family is inferred based on the partial 28S rDNA sequence from a representative of the genus Orientocreadium, which placed the Orientoc readiidae within a clade corresponding to the superfamily Plagiorchioidea and supported the family Leptophallidae as a sister taxon.

Ultrastructure of the spermatozoon of Lecithostaphylus parexocoeti (Digenea, Microphalloidea, Zoogonidae) parasite of the flying fish Cheilopogon pinnatibarbatus (Teleostei, Exocoetidae) off Senegal and their implication on the phylogenetic relationships in Microphalloidea
This study shows the ultrastructure of the mature spermatozoon of Lecithostaphylus parexocoeti, a parasite of the flying fish Cheilopogon pinnatibarbatus (Exocoetidae) captured in the Atlantic Ocean near Dakar (Senegal). Expand
Advances in Spermatological Characters in the Digenea: Review and Proposal of Spermatozoa Models and Their Phylogenetic Importance.
The current knowledge about sperm structure in the digeneans is summarized and a classification of digenean spermatozoa into five basic models is proposed, which outline the most interesting features for phylogenetic inference and their possible value in the context of digenesan systematics, phylogeny and evolution.

Systemic Collyriclum faba (Trematoda: Collyriclidae) Infection in a Wild Common Raven (Corvus corax)
A hatch-year Common Raven with subcutaneous and internal pseudocysts, filled with fluid, containing a pair of adult trematodes and numerous eggs consistent with Collyriclum faba, died near a riverbank in California, US. Expand


Phylogenetic relationships and systematic position of the families Cortrematidae and Phaneropsolidae (Platyhelminthes: Digenea).
The phylogenetic relationships of this family and its constituent genera and families within the superfamily Microphalloidea were evaluated using previously published and newly obtained sequences of 28S rDNA of Cortrema magnicaudata (Bykhovskaya-Pavlovskaya, 1950) (Cortrematidae), Phaneropsolus praomydis Baer, 1971 and Microtrema barusi Sitko, 2013 (Phanersolidae).

Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Microphalloidea Ward, 1901 (Trematoda: Digenea)
It is demonstrated that the Microphalloidea, as represented by the present data-set, consists of three main clades corresponding to the families Lecithodendriidae, Microphallidae and Pleurogenidae + Prosthogonimidae. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic characterization of Collyriclum faba with reference to its three host-specific ecotypes.
The hypothesis connecting strong host-specificity of the ecotypes with the possible existence of cryptic speciation among C. faba was examined, and analysis of conserved nuclear ribosomal DNA regions rejected the cryptic speciating hypothesis. Expand
Hydrobioidea of Poland (Prosobranchia: Gastropoda)
The paper is devoted to the Polish Hydrobioidea, which have not been studied so far, and the author presents his own concept of speciation and systematics within Bythinella. Expand
Identification of a new species of digenean Notocotylus malhamensis n. sp. (Digenea: Notocotylidae) from the bank vole (Myodes glareolus) and the field vole (Microtus agrestis)
This species appears to be most closely related to other previously described Notocotylus species infecting rodents in Europe but differs principally by the metraterm to cirrus sac ratio in combination with a densely spinulated cirrus, simple caeca and a greater number of ventral glands in the lateral rows.

Phylogenetic relationships and description of a new stygobite species of Bythinella (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Caenogastropoda, Amnicolidae) from southern France
It is hypothesize that the easily recognizable hypogean morph of the Folatière cave can be attributed to a distinct and new species of Bythinella, here described and named B. navacellensis n. Expand
Radiation in Bythinella Moquin-Tandon, 1856 (Mollusca:Gastropoda: Rissooidea) in the Balkans
The phylogeny, inferred on the combined data set with the ML approach, showed two large clades, although they were weakly supported, and all the Bulgarian populations presumably belong to one species, which may be assigned to the recent recolonisation of this territory from the south. Expand
Family Collyriclidae Ward, 1917
Collyriclids are distinguished from other members of the Gorgoderoidea Looss by the habitat of the adults, i.e. cysts in the skin or intestinal wall of birds and mammals, and are distinctive in the possession of an extraordinarily long Laurer's canal. Expand
On the anatomy and systematic position of the causative agent of so-called salmon poisoning.
It appears that Nanophyetus salmincola has no genital sucker or similar organ and no seminal receptacle and has a conspicuous cirrus pouch, and the eggs proved to be much smaller than the suckers and not the contrary, as is shown on Chapin's illustration. Expand
A gleam in the dark: phylogenetic species delimitation in the confusing spring-snail genus Bythinella Moquin-Tandon, 1856 (Gastropoda: Rissooidea: Amnicolidae).
The results strongly suggest that classical morphological descriptors may not constitute valid specific criteria within Bythinella, and support a complex scenario of invasions of subterranean habitats, as illustrated by the syntopy of several mitochondrial lineages or the conflicting evolutionary histories between COI and ITS1 in caves.
