Abstract The family Echinostomatidae Looss, 1899 exhibits a substantial taxonomic diversity, morphological criteria adopted by different authors have resulted in its subdivision into an impressive number of subfamilies. The status of the subfamily Echinochasminae Odhner, 1910 was changed in various classifications. Genetic characteristics and phylogenetic analysis of four Echinostomatidae species – Echinochasmus sp., Echinochasmus coaxatus Dietz, 1909, Stephanoprora pseudoechinata (Olsson, 1876…

Molecular characterisation of four echinostomes (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) from birds in New Zealand, with descriptions of Echinostoma novaezealandense n. sp. and Echinoparyphium poulini n. sp.
Comparative morphological and phylogenetic analyses supported the distinct species status of Echinostoma novaezealandense n.
Stephanoprora amurensis sp. nov., Echinochasmus milvi Yamaguti, 1939 and E. suifunensis Besprozvannykh, 1991 from the Russian southern Far East and their phylogenetic relationships within the Echinochasmidae Odhner 1910
Results of phylogenetic analysis based on ITS2 data show interfamily level of differences between the two clusters and intergeneric differentiation between the three subclusters uniting the species of Stephanoprora and Echinochasmus.
Diversity of echinostomes (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) in their snail hosts at high latitudes.
The biodiversity of freshwater ecosystems globally still leaves much to be discovered, not least in the trematode parasite fauna they support, and reports of species distributions spanning Europe and North America highlight the need for parasite biodiversity assessments across large geographical areas.

Echinostoma chankensis nom. nov., other Echinostoma spp. and Isthmiophora hortensis in East Asia: morphology, molecular data and phylogeny within Echinostomatidae
It was established that, based on both life cycle and morphology data, one of the trematodes is identical to the worms designated as Euparyphium amurensis, and genetic data showed that this trematode belongs to Echinostoma.
Molecular analyses reveal high species diversity of trematodes in a sub-Arctic lake.
The ribosomal transcription units of Haplorchis pumilio and H. taichui and the use of 28S rDNA sequences for phylogenetic identification of common heterophyids in Vietnam
Six common human pathogenic heterophyids were identified and clearly resolved and the phylogenetic tree inferred from 28S rDNA sequences again confirmed anomalies in molecular placement of some members of the family Heterophyidae and demonstrates the need for reappraisal of the entire superfamily Opisthorchioidea.
Chromosomal study of Khawia abbottinae (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea): karyotype and localization of telomeric and ribosomal sequences after fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)
The present study and its results enhance the limited knowledge on basic karyotype characteristics and 18S rDNA clusters location in caryophyllidean tapeworms.


Phylogenetic relationships of Echinostoma Rudolphi, 1809 (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) and related genera re-assessed via DNA and morphological analyses
Although the ITS data provided insufficient resolution for an unequivocal solution to the relationships within the genus Echinostoma, it supported the identification of Echinoparyphium ellisi and the distinct species status of three isolates of E chinostoma revolutum as predicted from the ND1 data.
A phylogenetic analysis of trematodes of the genus Echinoparyphium and related genera based on sequencing of Internal Transcribed Spacer region of rDNA
The sequencing of ITS 1 fragments of the rDNA were assayed in order to discriminate species and to estab­lish relationships between representatives of the genus Echinoparyphium and to identify sympatric sibling species within the 45 collar spine Echino­paryPhium.
New cryptic species of the ‘revolutum’ group of Echinostoma (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) revealed by molecular and morphological data
The findings highlight the need for further analyses of patterns of interspecific variation based on molecular and morphological evidence to enhance the re-evaluation of the species and advance the understanding of the relationships within the ‘revolutum’ group of Echinostoma.
Nuclear rDNA ITS sequence variation in the trematode genus Echinostoma: an aid to establishing relationships within the 37-collar-spine group
DNA sequence data from the nuclear rDNA ITS1, 5·8S and ITS2 of 7 nominal species belonging to the 37-collar-spine group within the genus Echinostoma provides a model for future work on sibling species and will assist in the current reclassification of the group.
Genetic characterization of Echinostoma revolutum and Echinoparyphium recurvatum (Trematoda: Echinostomatidae) in Thailand and phylogenetic relationships with other isolates inferred by ITS1 sequence
The phylogenetic relationships between an isolate from Thailand with other isolates available from GenBank database revealed that E. recurvatum from Thailand clustered as a sister taxa with E. revolutum and not with other members of the genus Echinoparyphium, confirming a previous report based on allozyme electrophoresis and mitochondrial DNA that these species are sister species.
Molecular Analysis of Echinostome Metacercariae from Their Second Intermediate Host Found in a Localised Geographic Region Reveals Genetic Heterogeneity and Possible Cryptic Speciation
The degree of genetic diversity present would suggest the use of targeted regimes designed to minimise the selection of anthelmintic resistance, and the apparent lack of geographic structuring is consistent with the transmission of the parasites by the avian hosts.
Karyological studies on some species of the families Echinostomatidae and Plagiorchiidae and aspects of chromosome evolution in trematodes
It is proved that the regression of the lengths of the chromosome arms has a linear character with a similar angle of slope in the different species.
Species of Ribeiroia (Trematoda: Psilostomidae) are known to cause severe limb malformations and elevated mortality in amphibians. However, little is known regarding the number of species in this
Differentiation of European freshwater bucephalids (Digenea: Bucephalidae) based on karyotypes and DNA sequences
Very close phylogenetic affinity between investigated species was revealed; the sequence difference between the two species of Rhipidocotyle Diesing, 1858 was comparable with intergeneric differences observed in comparisons of B. polymorphus with R. fennica.
Morphological and molecular data for larval stages of four species of Petasiger Dietz, 1909 (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) with an updated key to the known cercariae from the Palaearctic
Molecular and morphological evidence for their distinction and an updated key to the known large-tailed cercariae of Petasiger from the Palaearctic are provided.
