Serpentoanisocladium sinense n. g., n. sp. (Digenea: Cryptogonimidae) is described from the intestine of the eastern water snake Sinonatrix percarinata (Boulenger) (Serpentes: Colubridae) from Guizhou Province, China. This digenean is morphologically most similar to members of Anisocladium Looss, 1902 and, to a lesser extent, Anisocoelium Lühe, 1900, which are parasites of marine teleost fish in the Mediterranean and Black Seas. The new genus and species can be differentiated from the two known… Expand
Annakohniella travassosi n. gen., n. sp. (Digenea: Cryptogonimidae) Parasite of Rhaphiodon vulpinus (Pisces: Cynodontidae) from Brazil
A new genus of the family Cryptogonimidae is described from a freshwater fish from the north of Brazil that differs from Timoniella by having a deeply lobed ovary, a very large seminal receptacle, and the ovary widely separated from the testes by uterine coils. Expand
Topography and ultrastructure of the tegument of Aphallus tubarium (Rodolphi, 1819) Poche, 1926 (Digenea: Cryptogonimidae), intestinal parasite of the common Dentex dentex (Linnaeus 1758) from Valinco Gulf
The tegument ultrastructure of the intestinal fluke Aphallus tubarium was studied for the first time with the use of scanning and transmission electron microscopy and diagrams of spines and sensory receptors were made to help in understanding the nature of these structures. Expand
A molecular phylogenetic appraisal of the acanthostomines Acanthostomum and Timoniella and their position within Cryptogonimidae (Trematoda: Opisthorchioidea)
The phylogenetic position of three taxa from two trematode genera, belonging to the subfamily Acanthostominae, were analysed using partial 28S ribosomal DNA and internal transcribed spacers and indicated the monophyly of the genus AcanthOSTomum and paraphyletic taxon, in contrast with previous classifications based on morphological data.

A multivariate analysis of some Digenean species collected from several Red Sea fishes in Saudi Arabia
A group of ten Digenean species needs a considerable interest to analyze and discuss their phylogeny and classification. Phylogenies and classification of these trematodes are poorly discussed inExpand


Revision of the Acanthostominae Poche, 1926 (Digenea: Cryptogonimidae).
The digenean subfamily Acanthostominae is redefined and revised, and available names serve to partition acanthostomes into six genera, which contains the species spiniceps, absconditum, knobus, niloticum, minimum, gnerii, astorquii, americanum and megacetabulum. Expand
Three little known acanthostomine digeneans from Uranoscopus scaber L. in the western Mediterranean
Three species of acanthostomine digeneans, Anisocoelium capitellatum from the gall-bladder and Anisocladium fallax and A. gracilis from the intestine, are redescribed from the teleost UranoscopusExpand
Four new trematodes from reptiles.
Protenes is a straight seminal vesicle, pars prostatica, ductus ejaculatorius and a protrusible cirrus that extends from posterior tip of body to Mehlis' gland, where it bifurcates. Expand
The trematodes of reptiles. Part 1. Systematic section.
The authors thank Dr. E. W. Price of the United States Bureau of Animal Industry for help with the taxonomy of certain of the trematodes. Expand
The Western Mediterranean
Unlike many of the other regions covered in this volume, the western Mediterranean is neither an ancient political territory nor topographically distinct and self-contained. Nor does it constitute aExpand
