Testudotaenia testudo (Magath, 1924) is redescribed from the intestine of the softshell turtle Apalone spinifera (Le Sueur) (Trionychidae) and the bowfin Amia calva Linnaeus (Amiidae) from Reelfoot Lake, Tennessee, United States. A new subfamily, the Testudotaeniinae, is erected. The new taxon differs from all proteocephalidean subfamilies in the position of the genital organs in relation to the longitudinal internal musculature, i.e. the testes are cortical, rarely medullary; the ovary is…

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the large subunit nuclear ribosomal RNA gene (lsrDNA, D1-D3 domains) confirms that S. mabelae represents an independent lineage within a large clade comprised mainly from Neotropical taxa parasitising catfishes.

Tapeworms (Cestoda) of ictalurid catfishes (Siluriformes) in North America: redescription of type species of two genera and proposal of Essexiellinae n. subfam.

TLDR
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.

Untangling convoluted taxonomy of Chambriella Rego, Chubb & Pavanelli, 1999 (Cestoda: Proteocephalidae), with erection of Riggenbachiella n. g. and the description of a new species from pimelodid catfishes in the Neotropical Region

TLDR
As part of a complex revision of proteocephalid cestodes parasitic in freshwater bony fishes of the Neotropical Region, the genus Chambriella Rego, Chubb & Pavanelli, 1999 is redefined based on detailed examination of type-specimens and newly collected material of both nominal species of the genus, revealing that the type-species C. zungaro is indistinguishable from Lenhataenia megacephala.

A new species of Australotaenia (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea) from a snake in Cambodia: host switching or postcyclic parasitism in a distant region?

TLDR
The occurrence of A. bunthangi in the former Indochina extends the range of the geographical distribution of the genus to another zoogeographical region and indicates a much wider range of definitive hosts of species of this genus, i.e. amphibians and reptiles, which is exceptional among proteocephalideans.

Endoparasites (Apicomplexa, Monogenoidea, Trematoda, Cestoda, Nematoda, Acanthocephala) from Eleven Reptiles (Testudines: Lacertilia: Ophidia) of McCurtain County, Oklahoma, Including the First Report of the Endogenous Stages of Eimeria robisoni (Eimeriidae)

TLDR
Several new host and distributional records for these parasites are document, including three taxa reported from L. calligaster for the first time and novel  information on the endogenous stages of the coccidian, E. robisoni.

Taxonomic status of Woodland’s enigmatic tapeworms (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea) from Amazonian catfishes: back to museum collections

TLDR
Poorly known proteocephalidean cestodes of peculiar morphology from pimelodid catfishes in Amazonia, Brazil, were studied and re-examination of their type-specimens and evaluation of newly-collected material made it possible to clarify their taxonomic status.

TLDR
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.

TLDR
Both taxa represent the first record of proteocephalidean tapeworms in polychrotid and gekkonid lizards, respectively.

TLDR
Morphological studies of type-species of the genera Peltidocotyle Diesing, 1850 and Othinoscolex Woodland, 1933 showed that these genera are synonyms, and P. lenha and Woodlandiella myzofer are considered conspecific following a thorough morphological examination.
