Spermiogenesis of Bothriocephalus scorpii (Cestoda, Pseudophyllidea) includes an orthogonal development of two flagella, followed by a flagellar rotation and a proximo-distal fusion with the median cytoplasmic process. The fusion occurs at the level of four attachment zones. The presence of dense material in the apical region of the differentiation zone in the early stage of spermiogenesis appears to be a characteristic feature for the Pseudophyllidea. The mature spermatozoon possesses two… Expand
Spermatological characters in Diphyllobothrium latum (Cestoda, Pseudophyllidea)
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
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
Spermiogenesis and spermatozoon of the tapeworm Parabothriocephalus gracilis (Bothriocephalidea): Ultrastructural and cytochemical studies
TLDR
Spermiogenesis and spermatozoon ultrastructure of the tapeworm Parabothriocephalus gracilis were described using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and one of the most interesting features is the presence of a ring of cortical microtubules surrounding the axoneme. Expand
Spermatozoon ultrastructure of the pseudophyllidean cestode Paraechinophallus japonicus, a parasite of deep-sea fish Psenopsis anomala (Perciformes, Centrolophidae)
TLDR
The first ultrastructural data on the spermatozoon of a pseudophyllidean cestode belonging to the family Echinophallidae, Paraechinophallus japonicus, parasitizing deep-sea fish Psenopsis anomala from Japan is provided, supporting the assumption that the order Pseudophyllides is formed in fact by two unrelated clades.

Ultrastructure of the Spermatozoon of Bothriocotyle SP. (Cestoda: Bothriocephalidea), A Parasite of Schedophilus velaini (Sauvage, 1879) (Perciformes: Centrolophidae) In Senegal
Abstract: The mature spermatozoon of Bothriocotyle sp. is filiform and tapered at both extremities. It possesses 2 axonemes of unequal length, showing the 9 + “1” pattern of Trepaxonemata. TheExpand
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
Ultrastructure of spermiogenesis and mature spermatozoon of Breviscolex orientalis (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea)
Spermiogenesis and spermatozoon ultrastructure of the caryophyllidean cestode Breviscolex orientalis Kulakovskaya, 1962, first member of the family Capingentidae studied, a parasite of cyprinid fishExpand
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
A reinvestigation of spermiogenesis in Amphilina foliacea (Platyhelminthes: Amphilinidea).
TLDR
New for this species is the finding of electron-dense material in the apical region of the differentiation zone at the early stage of spermiogenesis, and the fact that two arching membranes appear at the base of the differentiated zone only when the two flagella rotate towards the median cytoplasmic process. Expand
Ultrastructure of the spermatozoon of the diphyllobothriidean cestode Cephalochlamys namaquensis (Cohn, 1906)
TLDR
This contribution provides the first ultrastructural and cytochemical data on the mature spermatozoon of a diphyllobothriid cestode belonging to the family Cephalochlamydidae, a parasite of the African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis, from southern California, USA. Expand

TLDR
Spermiogenesis of the pseudophyllidean tapeworm Eubothrium crassum has been described by the aid of transmission electron microscopy for the first time and the basal bodies with the rootlets detach from the flagella, the intercentriolar body changes its structure and spermatids are pinched off from a condensing residual cytoplasm at the level of the arching membranes.

C Crested-like bodies and striated roots linked together by an electron-dense material have never been reported during the spermiogenesis in a proteocephalidean and the existence of three crested- like bodies in the Proteocephalides is described for the first time. Expand

TLDR
The present results support previous data that the type of spermiogenesis in proteocephalideans resembles mostly that observed in tetraphyllideans (Onchobothriidae and Phyllobothriaidae), thus supporting the view of a close phylogenetic relationship of tetraphytidean and proteOcephalidean cestodes.
