Paraorygmatobothrium n.g. (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) differs from all other phyllobothriid genera in having serrated microtriches on the proximal bothridial surfaces, two dorsal and two ventral scutes on the neck, and the presence of very small (<500 nm) triangular structures on the surface of the neck. No single light microscopical feature is sufficient to distinguish the new genus from other phyllobothriid genera. Phyllobothrium prionacis from Prionace glauca and Anthobothrium exiguum from… 

Anthobothrium lesteri n. sp. (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) in Carcharhinus melanopterus from Heron Island, Australia, with comments on its site, mode of attachment, reproductive strategy and membership of the genus

TLDR
A combination of characters, namely the number of testes, a weakly laciniate strobila and mature proglottis which is conspicuously longer than wide distinguishes it from other species that appear to be consistent with van Beneden's original concept of Anthobothrium.

Taxonomic resolution ofPhyllobothrium van Beneden (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) and a description of a new species from the leopard sharkTriakis semifasciata

TLDR
The generic diagnosis ofPhyllobothrium is amended in order to be consistent with the descriptions of these three species, and the genus is considered to be monophyletic.

Two new species of Paraorygmatobothrium Ruhnke, 1994 (Tetraphyllidea: Phyllobothriidae) from the smooth-hound Mustelus mustelus (L.) and the gummy shark M. antarcticus Günther (Carcharhiniformes: Triakidae)

Guidus n. gen. (Cestoda, Tetraphyllidea) is proposed for 3 cestode species from skates (Bathyraja spp.: Rajiformes, Rajidae). Members of Guidus differ from those of all other phyllobothriid genera in

Two new species of Paraorygmatobothrium Ruhnke, 1994 (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) from the carcharhinid shark Carcharhinus cf. dussumieri (Müller & Henle) in the Persian Gulf

TLDR
The two new species belong to the tetraphyllidean genus Paraorygmatobothrium, and differ from one another in cirrus-sac shape, testicular shape and arrangement, and vitelline follicle arrangement (i.e. 2 vs 4–6 follicles in each lateral band).

Two new species of Duplicibothrium Williams & Campbell, 1978 (Tetraphyllidea: Serendipidae) from the Pacific cownose ray Rhinoptera steindachneri

TLDR
Systematic information gained from the study of these two new species supports the monophyly of the tetraphyllidean family Serendipidae and suggests that Duplicibothrium shares a phylogenetic heritage with species in the genera Glyphobothrium and Seredip, taxa that are also parasitic in cownose rays.

Insights from new cestodes of the crocodile shark, Pseudocarcharias kamoharai (Lamniformes: Pseudocarchariidae), prompt expansion of Scyphyophyllidum and formal synonymization of seven phyllobothriidean genera - at last!

TLDR
Three new cestode species are described from the crocodile shark in Ecuador, including a unique combination of morphological features in one of the new species that prompted formal investigation of the non-monophyly of Paraorygmatobothrium relative to the morphologically similar genera Doliobothsrium, Guidus, MarsupiOBothrium, Nandocestus, Orectolobicestus and Ruhnkecestus.

TLDR
The generic diagnosis of Calliobothrium is emended to include this species with 2 rather than 3 posthook loculi, which is described from the whiskery shark, Furgaleus macki, collected from Young Rocks in South Australia.

TLDR
Two new and twelve little known species of Phyllobothrium or of allied genera, mainly from elasmobranchs and teleosts caught off the British Isles, have been investigated and the genus is revised for the first time.

Morphological investigations into Floriceps minacanthus (Trypanorhyncha: Lacistorhynchidae) with analysis of the systematic utility of scolex microtriches

TLDR
Comparison of results with those from the seven other trypanorhynch species examined by previous authors with SEM indicates that there is much interspecific variability in both the morphology of microtriches present as well as their location on the scolex, and this, coupled with the lack of intraspecific variability, confirms that these structures are systematically informative.

The surface topography of three cestode parasites from the gut ofSqualus acanthias is described with the aid of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and the possibilities of these microtopographical features being used in a sensory and/or attachment role are considered.
