abstract:  The proteocephalidean tapeworm, Corallobothrium solidum, type species of the genus, is redescribed on the basis of the examination of its type specimens and extensive material recently collected from Malapterurus electricus (type host). Some morphological characteristics of taxonomic importance are reported for the first time, such as the presence of semispherical (U-shaped) sphincters on the external (outer) margin of the suckers, a vaginal sphincter, a well-developed seminal… 
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.

Bothriocephalidean tapeworms (Cestoda) of freshwater fish in Africa, including erection of Kirstenella n. gen. and description of Tetracampos martinae n. sp.
A survey of bothriocephalidean tapeworms (Cestoda) parasitizing African freshwater fish is provided and a new genus is proposed, distinguished from other genera of the Bothriocephalidae by the presence of an apical disc armed with two lateral semicircles of large hooks, cortical vitelline follicles and large-sizedcirrus-sac.
High species diversity of fish tapeworms in congeneric hosts in Africa: revision of Monobothrioides (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea), including description of two new species and molecular phylogeny
Molecular and morphological evaluation of tapeworms of the genus Monobothrioides revealed their relatively high species diversity in congeneric catfishes of the genera Auchenoglanis Gunther (Claroteidae) and Clarias Scopoli (Clariidae); molecular phylogenetic analyses of newly characterised lsrDNA and ssrDNA sequences distinguished five different lineages corresponding to morphologically well-defined species.
Characterization of 28S rRNA sequences of cestoda parasite Electrotaenia malapteruri Fritsch, 1886 from the Electric catfish Malapterurus electricus (Siluriformes: Malapteruridae).
Investigation of the presence of proteocephalids infecting the electric catfish Malapterurus electricus from Lake Manzala, Kafr El-Sheikh Governorate, Egypt revealed that there was high blast scores and low divergence between the present parasite and previously described Electrotaenia malapteruri.
A large 28S rDNA-based phylogeny confirms the limitations of established morphological characters for classification of proteocephalidean tapeworms (Platyhelminthes, Cestoda)
This study analyzed the largest proteocephalidean cestode molecular dataset to date comprising more than 100 species, including representatives from 54 genera and all subfamilies, thus significantly improving upon previous works to develop a molecular phylogeny for the group.
New Records of Helminth Parasites (Trematoda, Cestoda, Nematoda) from Fishes in the Arkansas and Red River Drainages, Oklahoma
Between November 2014 and November 2016, 85 individual fishes were collected from four sites in the Arkansas River drainage and three sites in Red River drainage of Oklahoma and examined for helminth parasites.
Susceptibility of Channel Catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), Blue Catfish (Ictalurus furcatus), and Their Commercially Cultured Hybrid to Metazoan Parasite Infection in Earthen Pond Aquaculture
ABSTRACT: We herein document the metazoan parasite component communities of channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), blue catfish (Ictalurus furcatus), and their commercially cultured hybrid (female I.


A New Genus and Species of Proteocephalidean (Cestoda) From Clarias Catfishes (Siluriformes: Clariidae) in Africa
B. lafoni, the type and only species of the new genus, is characterized mainly by the possession of an additional opening of each sucker; circular musculature on the anterior margin of suckers, serving as a sphincter; a small thin-walled glandular apical organ; and the absence of well-developed osmoregulatory canals in mature, pregravid, and gravid proglottids.
Redescription of Proteocephalus glanduligerus (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea), a Parasite of Clariid Catfishes in Africa with a Unique Glandular Apical Organ
