Acanthogyrus (Acanthosentis) maroccanus (Dollfus, 1951), an insufficiently described quadrigyrid acanthocephalan of cyprinid fishes from Northwest Africa, is redescribed based on recently collected specimens from the Algerian barb Luciobarbus callensis (Valenciennes) in Algeria. Newly observed morphological features for A. (A.) maroccanus include the arrangement of proboscis hooks (not in regular circles), the male reproductive structures extending into the copulatory bursa and the presence of… Expand

Tapeworms (Cestoda) of ictalurid catfishes (Siluriformes) in North America: redescription of type species of two genera and proposal of Essexiellinae n. subfam.
The new subfamily Corallobothriinae was monophyletic in all molecular phylogenetic analyses, being most closely related to three Neotropical proteocephalids from the redtail catfish, Phractocephalus hemioliopterus but distant from all remaining proteocephalid tapeworms from freshwater fishes in North America.

Acanthocephala of cichlids (pisces) in Lake Malawi, Africa, with a description of Acanthogyrus (Acanthosentis) malawiensis sp. n. (Quadrigyridae) from Labeo cylindricus Peters, 1852 (Cyprinidae)
Two species of acanthocephalan s are reported from fishes collected during the summer of 1996 in the southeas t arm of Lake Malawi (Lake Nyasa), East Africa, and two males of a new species are described from 2 male Labeo cylindricus (Cyprinidae). Expand
Description of a New Quadrigyrid Acanthocephalan from Kashmir, with Notes on Metal Analysis and Histopathology, and a Key to Species of the Subgenus Acanthosentis from the Indian Subcontinent
The new species of Acanthosentis of the Indian subcontinent is described from recently collected acanthocephalan specimens in the Jhelum River in northern Kashmir and is characterized by having a para-receptacle structure in males and females, and having unique double Saefftigen's pouches, large round single-nucleated cells in the proboscis, and hollow hooks high in sulfur but with limited calcium ions.

The Description and Host–Parasite Relationships of a New Quadrigyrid Species (Acanthocephala) from the Persian Tooth-Carp, Aphanius farsicus (Actinoptreygii: Cyprinodontidae) in Iran
The new species is the smallest of all the 44 known species of the subgenus Acanthosentis Verma and Datta, 1929, measuring between 0.26 and 1.68 mm in length and has a short cylindrical proboscis with very long anterior hooks widely separated from very small hooks in 2 very close circles posteriorly.

Mayarhynchus karlae n. g., n. sp. (Acanthocephala: Neoechinorhynchidae), a parasite of cichlids (Perciformes: Cichlidae) in southeastern Mexico, with comments on the paraphyly of Neoechynorhynchus Stiles & Hassall, 1905
Phylogenetic analyses confirmed that the new genus belongs to the Neoechinorhynchidae and indicated that the genus Neoechyn orhynchus Stiles & Hassall, 1905 is not monophyletic. Expand
Molecular identification and first description of the male of Neoechinorhynchus schmidti (Acanthocephala: Neoechinorhynchidae), a parasite of Trachemys scripta (Testudines) in México.
Maximum likelihood and maximum parsimony analyses show that N. schmidti and N. emyditoides are sister taxa, and bootstrap analysis indicates that the sister relationship is reliably supported. Expand

Three species of acanthocephalans are described from fishes caught in the Pacific coast off eastern Vietnam and from amphibians in the midlands in 2016 and its ecology is briefly discussed. Expand
A New Species of Neoechinorhynchus (Acanthocephala: Neoechinorhynchidae) from White Sucker (Catostomus commersonii) in New York
Neoechinorhynchus bullocki differs from other catostomid-infecting species in body size and shape, proboscis armature, and characteristics of the male reproductive system and was found to have a strict level of host specificity based on an extensive fish parasite survey that took place in New York State over a 10-yr period.

Molecular Phylogeny of the Acanthocephala (Class Palaeacanthocephala) with a Paraphyletic Assemblage of the Orders Polymorphida and Echinorhynchida
The resulting trees suggest a paraphyletic arrangement of the Echinorhynchida and Polymorphida inside the Palaeacanthocephala, which questions the placement of the genera Serrasentis and GorgorHynchoides within the Echinochynchidas and not the Poly Morphida. Expand
Description of a new species of Neoechinorhynchus (Acanthocephala: Neoechinorhynchidae) a parasite of Dormitator latifrons from Southwestern Mexico based on morphological and molecular characters.
The morphological evidence, the multivariate analyses, in combination with the genetic divergence estimated with two genes, the reciprocal monophyly in all the phylogenetic analyses, and the haplotype network, suggested that the acanthocephalans found in the intestine of D. latifrons in Southwestern Mexico represent a new species, named N. mamesi n.
