The ghost of hosts past: impacts of host extinction on parasite specificity
TLDR
It is suggested that an improved understanding of the impact of host extinction on contemporary host–parasite interactions may shed light on core aspects of disease ecology, including comparative studies of host specificity, virulence evolution in multi-host parasite systems, and future trajectories for host and parasite biodiversity.

Morphological and molecular characterisation of Paranoplocephala buryatiensis n. sp. and P. longivaginata Chechulin & Gulyaev, 1998 (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) in voles of the genus Clethrionomys
TLDR
The cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) sequence data support the independent status of these species, and show that they form a monophyletic assemblage within Paranoplocephala (sensu lato).
Phylogenetic relationships of the anoplocephaline cestodes of Australasian marsupials and resurrection of the genus Wallabicestus Schmidt, 1975
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis was carried out on rDNA of 45 species of anoplocephaline cestodes from marsupial hosts, finding the clade of bile duct-inhabiting Progamotaenia species emphasises the role of microhabitat rather than host species as a driver of speciation.
Oribatid mites as intermediate hosts of Anoplocephala manubriata, cestode of the Asian elephant in India
TLDR
Anoplocephala manubriata is a tapeworm that parasitizes both African and Asian elephants and five species of oribatids were found to contain at least one immature life stage of A. manubRIata.

Anoplocephalid cestodes of veterinary and medical significance: a review.
TLDR
A theoretical methodological research proposal was constructed which attempts to define a conceptional mark enabling us to predict and explain the parasite-hosts' related phenomenon, using the controversial biological cycle of Thysanosoma actinioides.
Studies on the tapeworm Anoplocephala perfoliata (Goeze, 1782)
1. The exrectory system of Anoplocephala perfoliata has been re-described and shown to consist of a dorsal ‘network’ system of vessels to which the flame cells are connected and a ventral pair of
A taxonomic revision of the genus Anoplocephaloides Baer, 1923 sensu Rausch (1976), with the description of four new genera (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae)
TLDR
In this revision of the generic classification of all species assigned to Anoplocephaloides Baer, 1923 sensu Rausch (1976) and related taxa, the emphasis is on morphological features that are shown to differ predictably between the monophyletic groups in the “arvicoline clade” of cestodes.
Keys to the cestode parasites of vertebrates.
TLDR
This book provides keys to enable specialists and non-specialists to identify cestodes to generic level and is a standard work on tapeworm identification and will be indispensable for parasitologists.
Genetic characterization of the Asian Taenia, a newly described taeniid cestode of humans.
TLDR
The results support earlier conclusions that the Asian Taenia is a genetically distinct entity but is closely related to T. saginata, and suggest that its taxonomic classification as a subspecies, strain, or variant of T. Saginata is more appropriate than formal designation as a new species.
Molecular phylogenetics of the four Schistosoma species groups determined with partial 28S ribosomal RNA gene sequences
TLDR
Results confirm a phylogeny previously suggested by 18S rRNA gene sequences, corroborating the status of S. spindale as a sister taxon to S. haematobium, and demonstrate the utility of 28S r RNA gene sequence data for resolving phylogenies within the Schistosomatidae.
