Schistosoma sinensium Bao, 1958 was first isolated from an unidentified snail in Sichuan Province, PR China. This species was apparently rediscovered in Chiang Mai Province, northwest Thailand (Baidikul et al., 1984); the definitive host was the rat Rattus rattus and the intermediate host was the snail Tricula bollingi. In this paper S. sinensium is rediscovered in Sichuan Province and compared with worms recovered from experimentally infected mice, which had been exposed to cercariae shed by T…

Schistosoma kisumuensis n. sp. (Digenea: Schistosomatidae) from murid rodents in the Lake Victoria Basin, Kenya and its phylogenetic position within the S. haematobium species group

TLDR
Comparison of approximately 3000-base-pair sequences of nuclear rDNA (partial 28S) and mtDNA ( partial cox1, nad6, 12S) strongly supports the status of Schistosoma kisumuensis as a new species and as a sister species of S. intercalatum.

Orientobilharzia Dutt & Srivastava, 1955 (Trematoda: Schistosomatidae), a junior synonym of Schistosoma Weinland, 1858

TLDR
In this study, the original descriptions and redescriptions of Orientobilharzia species and related revisions are reviewed, and it is confirmed that the morphological characters correspond with the results of the molecular studies.

ROBERTSIELLA SILVICOLA, A NEW SPECIES OF TRICULINE SNAIL (CAENOGASTROPODA: POMATIOPSIDAE) FROM PENINSULAR MALAYSIA, INTERMEDIATE HOST OF SCHISTOSOMA MALAYENSIS (TREMATODA: DIGENEA)

TLDR
Robertsiella silvicola is found in water bodies ranging from small, spring-fed, first-order streams to tiny trickles of water draining off forested hillsides, and appears to be a highly compatible intermediate host for the parasitic blood fluke Schistosoma malayensis that infects humans and other mammals in Malaysia.

THE PHYLOGENETICS OF TRICULINE SNAILS (RISSOOIDEA:POMATIOPSIDAE) FROM SOUTH-EAST ASIA AND SOUTHERN CHINA: HISTORICAL BIOGEOGRAPHY AND THE TRANSMISSION OF HUMAN SCHISTOSOMIASIS

TLDR
The data confirmed the congeneric status of N. aperta and N. burchi; the implications of this for the choice of historical biogeographical model for the Pachydrobiini are discus sed.

The phylogeny of the Schistosomatidae based on three genes with emphasis on the interrelationships of Schistosoma Weinland, 1858

TLDR
The principal findings are that Ornithobilharzia and AustrobilHarzia form a sister group to the Schistosoma; mammalian schistosomes appear paraphyletic and 2 TrichobilharZia species, T. ocellata and T. szidati, seem to be synonymous.

Cercarial dermatitis outbreak caused by ruminant parasite with intermediate snail host: schistosome in Chana, South Thailand

TLDR
Insight is provided into the parasite species that cause cercarial dermatitis in the outbreak area and the prevalence of infestation with schistosomes was described to improve the understanding of parasite species distribution.

Morphology and life cycle of Schistosoma sinensium Pao, 1959, from northwest Thailand.

TLDR
A comparison of 8 character states, including snail hosts, cercarial behavior, geographical distribution, and morphology of life cycle stages, indicates that S. sinensium is more closely related to S. japonicum Katsurada than it is to S.'s mansoni Sambon.

Schistosoma malayensis n. sp.: a Schistosoma japonicum-complex schistosome from Peninsular Malaysia.

TLDR
Comparisons between adult worms recovered from laboratory mice with similar worm burdens at 50-56 days postinfection and 2 strains of Schistosoma malayensis revealed only minor morphometric differences among these 3 species, which indicate that S.malayensis is more closely related to S. mekongi than toS.

EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE SCHISTOSOMATIDAE (PLATYHELMINTHES: DIGENEA) AND AN ASIAN ORIGIN FOR SCHISTOSOMA

TLDR
This study provides little evidence concerning the ancestral molluscan or vertebrate schistosome host but does demonstrate that host switching has been an important feature of schistOSome evolution.

Susceptibility of snail vectors to Oriental anthropophilic Schistosoma.

TLDR
Differences in compatibility between the snail vectors and the schistosome parasites may be the cause of these differences in compatibility, which are carried out to study the susceptibility of snail vectors to Oriental anthropophilic Schistosoma.

TLDR
In examining the distribution patterns of dominant freshwater families with regard to their biological, ecological, and overall phylogenetic relationships it is evident that ecology plays a major role along with dispersal and vicariance.
