Spermiogenesis of the monozoic cestode Khawia armeniaca (Cholodkovski, 1915), a parasite of Capoeta capoeta sevangi (De Filippi, 1865) (Pisces: Cyprinidae), has been investigated by means of transmission electron microscopy for the first time. The present results show that the type of spermiogenesis in K. armeniaca shares the main features described previously in the pseudophyllideans and/or spathebothriideans: apical dense material in the zone of differentiation in the early stages of… 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
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.

Ultrastructure of spermiogenesis in the caryophyllidean cestode Wenyonia virilis Woodland, 1923, with re-assessment of flagellar rotation in Glaridacris catostomi Cooper, 1920
TLDR
The ultrastructure of spermiogenesis in Wenyonia virilis Woodland, 1923, a caryophyllaeid cestode from the silurid Nile fish Synodontis schall, is described by means of transmission electron microscopy for the first time and it is concluded that flagellar rotation must logically occur in that species.

Spermatological characters of the caryophyllidean cestode Khawia sinensis Hsü, 1935, a carp parasite
TLDR
The ultrastructural characteristics of spermiogenesis and the mature spermatozoon of K. sinensis support basal position of the Caryophyllidea (and Spathebothriidea) relative to other eucestode orders. Expand
Spermiogenesis and spermatozoon ultrastructure of Hunterella nodulosa (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea), a monozoic parasite of suckers (Catostomidae) in North America.
TLDR
Data indicates uniformity of the process of sperm formation and spermatozoon ultrastructure in one of the evolutionarily most ancient groups of tapeworms. 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

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 and spermatozoon ultrastructure of the diphyllidean cestode Echinobothrium euterpes (Neifar, Tyler and Euzet 2001) Tyler 2006, a parasite of the common guitarfish Rhinobatos rhinobatos
TLDR
The most interesting pattern characterizing the diphyllidean cestodes is the presence of a triangular body constituted by fines and dense granules without visible striation and assimilated at the striated rootlets, which may be a synapomorphy of this order. Expand
Spermatological characters of bothriocephalideans (Cestoda) inferred from an ultrastructural study on Oncodiscus sauridae and Senga sp.
TLDR
A classical pattern for spermatological characters (spermiogenesis of type I with dense material in early stages and sperm of type II with a characteristic ring of cortical microtubules in the anterior part) in Bothriocephalidea is discussed. Expand

Spermiogenesis in the pseudophyllid cestode Eubothrium crassum (Bloch, 1779)
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.

Spermiogenesis in the cestode Corallobothrium solidum Fritsch, 1886 (Proteocephalidea: Corallobothriinae)
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.

TLDR
The organization of the posterior extremity of the gamete with the nucleus is described for the first time in the Pseudophyllidea and appears to be a specific feature for the clade "Bothriocephalidea". Expand
