The phylogenetic relationships and systematic position of the members of the suborder Plagiorchiata, one of the derived and most diverse groups of Digenea, have always been controversial. Here, we present a phylogeny of this group based on the analysis of partial sequences of the lsrDNA in 28 species representing 13 families of Plagiorchiata, as well as four outgroups. Our results show that the Plagiorchiata, as considered by most authors, is not monophyletic, and that the superfamilies… CONTINUE READING
