The surface topography and ultrastructure of the tegument of Paranaella luquei Kohn, Baptista-Farias & Cohen, 2000, a microcotylid monogenean parasite from the gills of Hypostomus regani (Ihering, 1905) (Loricariidae) was studied by scanning (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). By SEM, it was observed that the tegument presents transversal ridges, forming folds in the ventral and dorsal surfaces and microvillous-like tegumental projections in the anterior and median regions of body… Expand
Comparative topography and ultrastructure of tegument in a polyopisthocotylean parasite (Metamicrocotyla cephalus) and a monopistho-cotylean parasite (Dactylogyrus extensus).
TLDR
The result showed that the tegument of M. cephalus is characterized by many foldings producing closely packed annular corrugations superimposed with a complex configuration of many robust papillae bearing microvillus-like projections, thin terminal web just underneath the apical plasma membrane.

Topography and Ultrastructure of the Tegument of Bucephalus anguillae (Digenea: Bucephalidae), a Parasite of the European Eel Anguilla anguilla (Osteichthyen: Anguillidae)
TLDR
Ulastructural study revealed that the tegument of B. anguillae has a typical syncytial organization with a distal cytoplasm lying over a basal matrix and cytons below, allowing transit of secretory vesicles and granules. Expand
Ultrastructural observations on the elusive subtegumental cells of the viviparous gill monogenean, Macrogyrodactylus clarii
TLDR
The ultrastructure of the tegument, including putative subtegumental cells, of the monogenean gill parasite Macrogyrodactylus clarii is described for the first time and the close similarity between the secretory inclusions of the outer syncytial layer of the Tegument suggests that these cells represent the enigmatic tegumentsal cell bodies rather than vitelline cells.

Light and electron microscopy of Paranella diplodae N. SP. (Polyopisthocotylea;Microcotylidae; Monogenea ) from some Red Sea Teleost fishes in Egypt
TLDR
Paranaella diplodae (Polyopisthocotylea; Microcotylidae; Monogenea) is recorded as a new species collected from the investigated fish gills, which are lanculate flukes, the haptor is not distinguished from the body proper and the surface topography of the parasite bears small pits and conspicuous transverse folds.

The surface topography of Eudiplozoon nipponicum (Monogenea) developmental stages parasitizing carp (Cyprinus carpio L.)
TLDR
Using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), the external morphology of all developmental stages (egg, oncomiracidium, diporpa, just fused juvenile and adult) of the parasite, Eudiplozoon nipponicum, from the gills of carp was studied. Expand

The ultrastructure of the body tegument of Metamicrocotyla macracantha (Alexander, 1954) Koratha, 1955, parasite of Mugil liza from Brazil, was studied by transmission electron microscopy. The bodyExpand
Eurytrema coelomaticum: updated morphology of adult worms using advanced microscopy experiments.
TLDR
The knowledge of the adult structural organization of E. coelomaticum was improved and this work has contributed to propose new morphological criteria to evaluate the effects of antiparasitic drugs on flukes of medical and veterinary importance. Expand

Scanning and transmission electron microscopic studies of the surface of Vallisia indica (Monogenea, Polyopisthocotylea)
TLDR
Ulastructural studies were carried out on the surface of Vallisia indica, found on the gills of Scomberoides commersonianus in the Indian ocean, finding Uniciliated sensory structures are found around the mouth and on the body surface, whereas non-ciliated papillae-like structures are present on the haptor and hindbody.

Ultrastructure of the surface structures of Allodiscocotyla diacanthi (Polyopisthocotylea: Monogenea) from the gills of the marine teleost fish, Scomberoides tol.
TLDR
Scanning and transmission electron microscopic studies have been made of the surface architecture of the fish-gill parasite, Allodiscocotyla diacanthi, revealing the presence of cushion-like supports at the base of each clamp and groups of neurons containing characteristic dense-cored vesicles in the clamp region.

Ultrastructure of the surface structures and electron immunogold labeling of peptide immunoreactivity in the nervous system of Pseudothoracocotyla indica (Polyopisthocotylea: Monogenea)
TLDR
Electron immunogold labeling studies demonstrated that neuropeptide F [NPF (Moniezia expansa)] immunoreactivity was confined to electron-dense-cored neurosecretory vesicles in nerve fibres from the posterior and haptor regions of the fluke. Expand
The surface topography and ultrastructure of the tegument and haptor of Pricea multae (Monogenea)
TLDR
The surface topography and ultrastructure of the tegument and haptor of Pricea multae, a gill parasite of Scomberomorus spp, were examined in detail and appeared to differ from the body wall muscles by the absence of interstitial material. Expand

Ultrastructure of spermiogenesis, spermatozoa and the tegument in Atriaster sp. (Platyhelminthes, Monogenea, Polyopisthocotylea, Microcotylidae)
TLDR
Spermiogenesis is similar to the general scheme in the Cercomeridae and particularly the polyopisthocotylean monogeneans, but shows two remarkable characteristics: the zone of differentiation for each spermatid is separated by a region without longitudinal microtubules but with many mitochondria, herein termed the pre‐zone of differentiation.
