The present study re-examines the detailed morphology of the type-species, Diclidophora merlangi (Kuhn, in Nordmann, 1832) Krøyer, 1838, and other Diclidophora species parasitic on gadid fishes: D. denticulata (Olsson, 1876) Price, 1943, D. esmarkii (Th. Scott, 1901) Sproston, 1946, D. luscae (van Beneden & Hesse, 1863) Price, 1943, D. minor (Olsson, 1868) Sproston, 1946, D. palmata (Leuckart, 1830) Diesing, 1850, D. phycidis (Parona & Perugia, 1889) Sproston, 1946, D. pollachii (van Beneden… 
Principal-component analyses showed that the morphology of the specimens on cod was more similar to that of D. merlangi than those of other congeneric species from the North Atlantic, additionally supporting their assignment to D.Merlangi on whiting.
A new species of Tinrovia Mamaev, 1987 (Monogenea: Microcotylidae) from the deep-sea fish Notacanthus bonaparte Risso (Notacanthiformes: Notacanthidae) in the Western Mediterranean and the North East Atlantic
A new microcotylid, Tinrovia mamaevi n. sp. (Monogenea: Polyopisthocotylea), is described from the gills of Notacanthus bonaparte Risso (Notacanthiformes: Notacanthidae), sampled in the Western
Parasites of the Antarctic rattail Macrourus whitsoni (Regan, 1913) (Macrouridae, Gadiformes)
The parasite fauna of M. whitsoni revealed several similarities with its congeners M. carinatus and M. holotrachys from Antarctic and sub-Antarctic waters, which can be explained by a wide host range of many macrourid deep-sea parasites, together with an overlap in distribution patterns of their hosts.
The first report of two monogenean gill parasites assigned to ‎Diclidophora merlangi (Diclidophoridae) and Loxuroides pricei ‎‎(Axinidae) from brushtooth lizardfish and red porgy seabream of ‎the Red Sea, Egypt
The morphological and quantitative data of the isolated specimens and the potential reproductive consequences supported their assignment to L. pricei more than to the other congeneric species.
New Records of Species of Macrovalvitrematidae Yamaguti, 1963 (Monogenea) from Puerto Rico Including One New Genus and Two New Species
The clamp is emphasized as the key taxonomic character for macrovalvitrematid genera, except for Pseudotagia, which has distinctively longer than wide clamps and with a more-complex skeletal structure.
Redescription of Flexophora ophidii Prost & Euzet, 1962 (Monogenea: Diclidophoridae) from Ophidion barbatum (Ophidiidae) off the Algerian coast, Mediterranean Sea
Flexophora ophidii is redescribed and illustrated based on examination of new material from the type-host Ophidion barbatum L. (Ophidiiformes: Ophidiidae) collected off the Algerian coast (new geographical record), southern Mediterranean.
Parasites of the Blue Antimora, Antimora rostrata and Slender Codling, Halargyreus johnsonii (Gadiformes: Moridae), in the Northwestern Atlantic
Blue antimora and slender codling are recorded as hosts of 14 and 5 parasite taxa, respectively, and have similar patterns of infection to other bony fish that exist at a similar depth within the studied region.
Parasite fauna of Antarctic Macrourus whitsoni (Gadiformes: Macrouridae) in comparison with closely related macrourids
Due to the isolated habitat within the Antarctic Conversion, the parasite fauna of M. whitsoni differs clearly from those of closely related and closely occurring species of the genus Macrourus, which emphasizes the isolated character of the Antarctic shelf regions.
Parasite communities of the European Cod "Comunidades parásitas de Bacalao en aguas de Europa"
The structure of the metazoan parasite faunas and communities in Atlantic cod, Gadus morhua L., from six NE Atlantic regions [Baltic, Celtic, Irish and North seas, Icelandic waters and
Macrouridophora halargyrea n. sp. (Monogenea: Diclidophoridae) from Halargyreus johnsonii (Moridae) in the North-eastern Atlantic
This new species is differentiated from ten other species in the genus Macrouridophora by its: specialised heart-shaped haptor distinctly set-off from the body proper; inverted orientation of the first three anterior pairs of clamps; distinct spinulation covering the isthmus and haaptor.


Redescription of Diclidophoroides maccallumi (Monogenea: Diclidophoridae) from the gills of longfin hake, Phycis chesteri, from the Gulf of St. Lawrence
Diclidophoroides maccallumi is redescribed from the gills of longfin hake, Phycis chesteri, caught off the coast of Newfoundland in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Specific characteristics such as the
Host-Specificity and Speciation in Diclidophoran (Monogenean) Gill Parasites of Trisopteran (Gadoid) Fishes at Plymouth
Investigation of the sudden appearance in 1979 of a monogenean parasite on a previously uninfected population of poor cod finds evidence of the very strict species-specificity to their hosts manifested by most monogeneans and especially by diclidophorans on gadoids.
Mamaevodiclidophora nom.nov. proposed for Neodiclidophora Mamaëv, 1987, with a redescription of Mamaevodiclidophora pugetensis (Robinson, 1961) comb.nov. (Monogenea : Diclidophoridae)
The type species, Neodiclidophora simhai Gupta and Krisha, 1979, from the gills of Takifugu (= Tetradon) oblongus (Tetraodontidae) in India, is compared with another species reported from the same host and locality, Diclodophora indica Tripathi, 1959, species incertae sedis.
Diclidophora nezumiae sp. n. is described from the gills of the rat-tail fish Nezumia bairdii (Goode and Bean, 1877) taken from the environs of Hudson Submarine Canyon in the northwest Atlantic. The
A new species
The only previously known species of Myrsidea from bulbuls, M. warwicki ex Ixos philippinus, is redescribed and sixteen new species are described; they and their type hosts are described.
The System of Higher Monogeneans in the Light of Recent Knowledge 1
Since Bykhowsky's monograph in 1957, the number of genera of higher monogeneans (Oligonchoinea Bykhowsky, 1937) has increased from 60 to 220, and the number of families from 12 to 29. Consequently
Taxonomy of monogeneans of deep sea fishes in southeastern Australia
The following monogeneans from deepwater fish in southeastern Australia are described, based on a survey of 1,563 fish (66 or 67 species, 35 families, 15 orders): Reimericotyle ceratoscopeli from
The life history and bionomics of Diclidophora denticulata (Trematoda: Monogenea)
Age resistance is probably developed to the extent that larvae cannot establish themselves on older fish and is probably due to mechanical difficulties and changed habits of the host.
A comparison of speciation in diclidophorinean monogenean gill parasites and in their fish hosts.
Since a very substantial majority of gadid species do not have monogenean gill parasites, the usefulness of a classification of these parasites in elucidating taxonomic problems of the hosts is correspondingly limited.
