A review of the Zoogonidae (Digenea: Microphalloidea) from fishes of the waters around New Caledonia, with the description of Overstreetia cribbi n. sp.
New and published reports of zoogonid digeneans from New Caledonian waters are recorded, including a description of Overstreetia cribbi n. sp. from Atherinomorus lacunosus. This species differs from
An annotated list of parasites (Isopoda, Copepoda, Monogenea, Digenea, Cestoda and Nematoda) collected in groupers (Serranidae, Epinephelinae) in New Caledonia emphasizes parasite biodiversity in coral reef fish.
It is hypothesized that the present results represent only a small part of the actual biodiversity, and it is predicted that New Caledonia has a biodiversity of 10 different parasite species and 30 host-parasite combinations per serranid.
Parasites of coral reef fish: how much do we know? With a bibliography of fish parasites in New Caledonia.
The present list is probably the most complete published account of parasite biodiversity of coral reef fishes, however, it is estimated that the present state of knowledge represents only 2% of the possible number of metazoan parasites of fish present in a coral reef environment.

Ulastructural evidence is presented suggesting that the membranous egg-capsule of the zoogonines shows vestiges of the three layers of a normal tanned egg-shell, but little general information on the zoogeography of the group was discovered.
An exceptionally rich complex of Sanguinicolidae von Graff, 1907 (Platyhelminthes : Trematoda) from Siganidae, Labridae and Mullidae (Teleostei : Perciformes) from the Indo-West Pacific Region
An unprecedented radiation of sanguinicolid blood flukes from two species of Labridae and seven species of Mullidae are described, with 13 new species characterised solely by molecular sequences and three putative species for which morphological data is available but for which molecular data is not.
Fishes collected in a protected area were on average, larger, older, had a higher percentage of regenerated scales, and harbored more parasites.
Development of monogenean communities on the gills of roach fry (Rutilus rutilus)
Larvae of the most common dactylogyrid species were able to disseminate and colonize over 120 m from the river to the farm and influence of change colonization events was shown by the appearance and development of Gyrodactylus sp.
Parasite biodiversity in a coral reef fish: twelve species of monogeneans on the gills of the grouper Epinephelus maculatus (Perciformes: Serranidae) off New Caledonia, with a description of eight new species of Pseudorhabdosynochus (Monogenea: Diplectanidae)

Coral reefs are known for their high level of biodiversity, but parasite biodiversity has not been evaluated. Cases such as Epinephelus maculatus, described here, show that the numerical estimation
Species richness in helminth communities: the importance of multiple congeners
It is concluded that multiple congeners and species flocks are interesting phenomena but, except in isolated cases, they make insignificant contributions to community richness.
Keys to the Trematoda
This volume covers five superfamilies within the Order Plagiorchiida and the family Didymozoidae, with keys for their identification at the family, subfamily and generic levels.
