Spermatological characters of the caryophyllidean tapeworm Khawia sinensis (Lytocestidae), a carp parasite, have been investigated for the first time. The process of the spermatozoon formation corresponds in basic pattern to that of Khawia armeniaca (Bruňanská and Poddubnaya, Parasitol Res 99: 449–454, 2006). The presence of dense material at the early stages of spermiogenesis, the intercentriolar body, flagellar rotation (free flagellum plus flagellar bud), and a complete proximodistal fusion… Expand
Spermatological Characters of Monozoic Tapeworms (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea), Including First Data on a Species from the Indomalayan Catfish
TLDR
The new data confirm that caryophyllideans share the same type of spermiogenesis that is considered to be plesiomorphic in the Eucestoda, and demonstrates great uniformity in spermisogenesis and sperm ultrastructure, which does not reflect different taxonomic position of the species studied. Expand
Revisiting caryophyllidean type of spermiogenesis in the Eucestoda based on spermatozoon differentiation and ultrastructure of Caryophyllaeus laticeps (Pallas, 1781)
TLDR
Spermiogenesis of the monozoic cestode Caryophyllaeus laticeps (Caryophyllaeidae), a parasite of Abramis brama, has been investigated by means of transmission electron microscopy and cytochemical staining with periodic acid–thiosemicarbazide–silver proteinate for glycogen. Expand

TLDR
Data indicates uniformity of the process of sperm formation and spermatozoon ultrastructure in one of the evolutionarily most ancient groups of tapeworms. Expand
New data on spermiogenesis and trepaxonematan axoneme in basal tapeworms (Cestoda, Caryophyllidea, Lytocestidae) parasitizing cyprinid fishes
TLDR
Electron tomography analysis has revealed a unique feature of two helicoidal tubular structures in the central electron-dense core of the axoneme of mature spermatozoon, which provides new insights into the architecture of the 9 + ‘1’ ax oneme, which is shared by male gametes of all trepaxonematan Platyhelminthes.

Spermatological characters of Acanthobothrium crassicolle Wedl, 1855 (Tetraphyllidea, Onchobothriidae), a parasite of the common stingray Dasyatis pastinaca
TLDR
In the final stages of spermiogenesis, the nucleus becomes filiform and migrates into the spermatid body, and the ring of arched membranes constricts and the spermatozoon is liberated from the residual cytoplasm. Expand
Spermatological characters of the spathebothriidean tapeworm Didymobothrium rudolphii (Monticelli, 1890)
TLDR
The ultrastructural features of the sperm/spermiogenesis support a view about the close relationships of the Spathebothriidea and DiphyllobothriideA and the basal position of thespathebothRIidea within the Eucestoda. Expand
Spermatological characters in the diphyllobothriidean Schistocephalus solidus (Cestoda)
TLDR
The mature spermatozoon of S. solidus presents the Type I pattern, which corresponds to Type I spermiogenesis according to the classification proposed by Bâ and Marchand, and consists of five regions that exhibit two axonemes, parallel cortical microtubules, nucleus and electron-dense zones. Expand
Spermiogenesis and sperm ultrastructure of two species of Duthiersia, parasites of monitors, with a review of spermatological characters in the Diphyllobothriidea (Cestoda)
TLDR
It is shown that the main characters of the sperm cell typical of these cestodes resemble those of other basal groups of tapeworms, which represents another support of their ancestral position. Expand

TLDR
The mature spermatozoon presents two axonemes of the 9 + ‘1’ trepaxonematan pattern, crested body, parallel nucleus and cortical microtubules, and glycogen granules, which corresponds to the type II spermatoZoon, described in almost all Proteocephalidea. Expand

Spermiogenesis in the caryophyllidean cestode Khawia armeniaca (Cholodkovski, 1915)
TLDR
Ulastructural data of spermiogenesis in K. armeniaca may support the hypothesis that the Caryophyllidea are secondarily derived from an ancestor closely allied with the Pseudophyllides and/or spathebothriideans. Expand

TLDR
The spermatological data support the assumption that the order Pseudophyllidea is formed by two unrelated clades, “Bothriocephalidea” and “Diphyllobothriidea", mainly in the absence of a crested body and a ring of electron‐dense tubular structures. Expand
