Larval trypanorhynch cestodes in teleost fish from Moreton Bay, Queensland
During a helminthological examination of teleost fish of Moreton Bay, 976 fish from 13 orders, 57 families and 133 species were examined and nine species of trypanorhynch metacestodes were identified, with fauna from the three reef locations sharing 35–48% of species between sites and just 12–24% with moreton Bay.

Integrative taxonomy unravels the species diversity of Parachristianella (Cestoda : Trypanorhyncha) from both sides of the Panamanian isthmus
This study suggests that this event can explain the diversification of Parachristianella Dollfus, 1946 (Trypanorhynchs) in the Caribbean Sea and tropical eastern Pacific Ocean and provides molecular, morphological and biogeographical evidence to recognise five lineages within this genus inhabiting the coastal waters of Panama.

The trypanorhynch cestode fauna of Borneo.
The present study assessed the host specificity for 16 species belonging to three prominent trypanorhynch genera recovered from elasmobranchs from Borneo and found that most species were euryxenous utilizing hosts from different orders or even classes, with only a single species (i.e. Dollfusiella imparispinis Schaeffner & Beveridge, 2013) being oioxenous utilize a single host species.

Nematode and cestode larvae of hygienic-sanitary importance in Lopholatilus villarii (Actinopterygii) in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The aim of this study was to identify the larvae of anisakid and raphidascaridid nematodes and trypanorhynch cestodes in L. villarii purchased in fish markets of the municipality of Niteroi, state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and calculate their parasitological indices and present their sites of infection.

Does host diet govern the structure and diversity of tapeworm assemblages in sharks? Insights from the literature and a model shark species; Cephaloscyllium isabellum
Investigation of sharks’ diets for the structure and diversity of their tapeworm assemblages revealed diet breadth to be a key predictor of Tapeworm richness in sharks, indicating that sharks with broader diets generally harbour more tapew Worm species. Expand
