Seven new species of Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae) isolated from the gills of six cichlid host species belonging to four tribes and sampled from the Congolese coastline of Lake Tanganyika (LT) are described: Cichlidogyrus adkoningsi sp. nov. from Cyphotilapia frontosa (tribe Cyphotilapiini); C. koblmuelleri sp. nov. from Cardiopharynx schoutedeni (Ectodini); C. habluetzeli sp. nov. from C. schoutedeni and C. frontosa; C. antoineparisellei sp. nov. from Interochromis… 
Four new species of Cichlidogyrus (Platyhelminthes, Monogenea, Dactylogyridae) from Lake Victoria haplochromine cichlid fishes, with the redescription of C. bifurcatus and C. longipenis
TLDR
It is confirmed that the monogenean fauna of Victorian littoral cichlids displays lower species richness and lower host-specificity than that of Lake Tanganyika littoran cichLids, and the need to re-evaluate the current classification system of haptoral configurations is highlighted.
Six new species of Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Platyhelminthes: Monogenea) from the gills of cichlids (Teleostei: Cichliformes) from the Lomami River Basin (DRC: Middle Congo)
TLDR
These parasite species show morphological similarities to species found in the Lower Guinea and Zambezi ichthyofaunal provinces, which might be explained by past river capture events between river systems of the Congo Province and both these regions.
Intraspecific morphological variation in Cichlidogyrus (Monogenea) parasitizing two cichlid hosts from Lake Tanganyika exhibiting different dispersal capacities
TLDR
Geomorphometric analyses revealed that populations of C. milangelnari, which parasitize poorly dispersing cichlids, are more differentiated than populations ofC.
Uncharted digenean diversity in Lake Tanganyika: cryptogonimids (Digenea: Cryptogonimidae) infecting endemic lates perches (Actinopterygii: Latidae)
TLDR
The present study provides the first comprehensive characterisation of the digenean diversity in a fish family from Lake Tanganyika which will serve as a baseline for future explorations of the lake’s digenesan fauna.
Contrasting Host-Parasite Population Structure: Morphology and Mitogenomics of a Parasitic Flatworm on Pelagic Deepwater Cichlid Fishes from Lake Tanganyika
TLDR
The present study revealed the lake-wide occurrence of Cichlidogyrus casuarinus, a parasite with a broad host range infecting pelagic fishes endemic to Lake Tanganyika, and presented the first parasite mitogenome from LakeTanganyika and proposed a methodological framework for studying the intraspecific mitogenomic variation of dactylogyrid monogeneans.
The cichlid–Cichlidogyrus network: a blueprint for a model system of parasite evolution
TLDR
This work proposes using recent interacting host–parasite radiations, e.g. African cichlid fishes and cichLid gill parasites belonging to CichlIDogyrus, as macroevolutionary model of species interactions, and discusses the steps required to develop this model system based on data resolution, sampling bias, and reporting quality.
Somewhere I belong: phylogeny and morphological evolution in a species-rich lineage of ectoparasitic flatworms infecting cichlid fishes.
TLDR
It is shown that discrete characters not only can mask phylogenetic signals, but also are key for characterizing species groups and called for a revaluation of characters included in species characterizations.
Somewhere I belong: phylogenetic comparative methods and machine learning to investigate the evolution of a species-rich lineage of parasites
TLDR
It is concluded that PCMs and SVM-based approaches are suitable tools to investigate character evolution in systems involving adaptive radiations or host-parasite interactions and a reconsideration of the morphometric measurements included in species characterisations.

Underexplored diversity of gill monogeneans in cichlids from Lake Tanganyika: eight new species of Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae) from the northern basin of the lake, with remarks on the vagina and the heel of the male copulatory organ
BackgroundLake Tanganyika harbours the most diverse cichlid assemblage of the Great African Lakes. Considering its cichlid flocks consist of approximately 250 endemic species, we can hypothesize a
Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Monogenea, Ancyrocephalidae): gill parasites from West African Cichlidae of the subgenus Coptodon Regan, 1920 (Pisces), with descriptions of six new species
TLDR
A study of gill parasites from fishes of the subgenus Coptodon Regan, 1920 (Cichlidae), revealed the presence of 19 species of Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Monogenea, Ancyrocephalidae), six of which are considered new species.
Four new species of Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Monogenea, Ancyrocephalidae), all gill parasites from African mouthbreeder tilapias of the genera Sarotherodon and Oreochromis (Pisces, Cichlidae), with a redescription of C. thurstonae Ergens, 1981
TLDR
Four new species of monogenean gill parasites belonging to Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 and considered as new species are described and distinguished by the shape and/or size of the sclerotised parts of the haptoral and copulatory complexes.
Two new species of Cichlidogyrus (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae) parasitizing the gills of African cichlid fishes (Perciformes) from Senegal: morphometric and molecular characterization
TLDR
Two new species of Cichlidogyrus are described from the gills of three species of African cichlids collected from the Gambia River basin in the Niokolo-Koba National Park, Senegal on the basis of morphological differences in the male copulatory organs (MCOs) and apparent similarities in the SSU rDNA and ITS1 sequence data.
Ancyrocephalidae (Monogenea) of Lake Tanganyika: II: description of the first Cichlidogyrus spp. parasites from Tropheini fish hosts (Teleostei, Cichlidae)
TLDR
The genital and haptoral structure of the new species suggests a close relationship, which might mirror the close affinities between the hosts within the Tropheini, and belong to a morphological group within the genus containing parasites both of West African cichlids and of Haplochromini.
Monogeneans of the genus Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Dactylogyridae: Ancyrocephalinae) from cichlid fishes of Lake Kariba (Zimbabwe) with descriptions of five new species
TLDR
The gills of six species of cichlid present in Lake Kariba (Zimbabwe) revealed the presence of twelve species of CichLidogyrus, five being new species, one of which, C. mortimeri, is elevated to specific status.
Three new species of Cichlidogyrus Paperna, 1960 (Monogenea, Ancyrocephalidae) parasitic on Tylochromis jentinki (Steindachner, 1895) (Pisces, Cichlidae) in West Africa
TLDR
Three new species of Monogenea are presented, considered primitive because of the morphology of the dorsal transverse bar of the haptor, but this is not considered sufficient to warrant their exclusion from the genus Cichlidogyrus.
Ancyrocephalidae (Monogenea) of Lake Tanganyika: III: Cichlidogyrus infecting the world’s biggest cichlid and the non-endemic tribes Haplochromini, Oreochromini and Tylochromini (Teleostei, Cichlidae)
TLDR
While the parasites of Oreochromis, A. burtoni and T. polylepis are reminiscent of those infecting related hosts throughout Africa, B. micropis hosts a Cichlidogyrus morphotype typical of Lake Tanganyika, which supports its placement within an endemic cichlids radiation.
Ancyrocephalidae (Monogenea) of Lake Tanganyika: I: Four new species of Cichlidogyrus from Ophthalmotilapia ventralis (Teleostei: Cichlidae), the first record of this parasite family in the basin
TLDR
This is the first record of ancyrocephalid parasites from the Tanganyika basin and displays a number of features new to the genus, namely a spirally coiled thickening at the end of the penis, the absence of an accessory piece in the genital apparatus, and a hitherto unknown uncinuli configuration in the haptor.
