Parasitological examination of elasmobranchs of Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia, resulted in the discovery of cestodes belonging to several armed genera of the Tetraphyllidea and Onchoproteocephalidea. Two new tetraphyllideans, Yorkeria moretonensis n. sp. and Yorkeria williamsi n. sp., are described from Chiloscyllium cf. punctatum (Hemiscylliidae). Yorkeria moretonensis n. sp. differs from its congeners in the possession of vitelline follicles that are discontinuous in the region of the… 
Three new species of 'tetraphyllidean' cestodes from an undescribed bamboo shark (Orectolobiformes: Hemiscylliidae) in Sri Lanka.
TLDR
This is the first species of Chiloscyllium Müller et Henle that has been found to host representatives of all three of these 'tetraphyllidean' genera and was found to possess a modified form of gladiate spinithrix on this surface.
Diversity and phylogenetic relationships of 'tetraphyllidean' Clade 3 (Cestoda) based on new material from orectolobiform sharks in Australia and Taiwan
TLDR
The association of the new species with orectolobiform sharks is consistent with those of the other members of Clade 3, and previously hypothesised close affinities between Caulopatera and Carpobothrium are supported, with the new genus as their sister group.
Genetic and morphological characterization of Mawsonascaris vulvolacinata n. sp. (Nematoda: Anisakidae) and associated histopathology in a wild caught cowtail stingray, Pastinachus ater.
TLDR
A new species of ascaridoid nematode belonging to the genus Mawsonascaris is described, and the most distinct characteristic features were observed in females (the presence of a polar spine in the eggs and a flap-like projection in the vulval area).

TWO NEW SPECIES OF YORKERIA (TETRAPHYLLIDEA: ONCHOBOTHRIIDAE) FROM CHILOSCYLLIUM PUNCTATUM (ELASMOBRANCHII: HEMISCYLLIIDAE) IN THAILAND
Two new species of the tapeworm genus Yorkeria are described from the spiral intestine of a specimen of the Brownbanded bambooshark, Chiloscyllium punctatum, collected from a fish market in
Three new species of Spiniloculus (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) from Chiloscyllium punctatum (Elasmobranchii: Orectolobiformes) off Borneo with clarification of the identity of the type of the genus.
TLDR
Morphological data generated here, using both light and scanning electron microscopy, support the suggested close affinities between Spiniloculus and Yorkeria Southwell, 1927, both of which parasitize bamboosharks.
A new tetraphyllidean genus and species, Caulopaterapagei n. g., n. sp. (Tetraphyllidea: Phyllobothriidae), from the grey carpetshark Chiloscyllium punctatum Müller & Henle (Orectolobiformes: Hemiscylliidae)

SEVEN NEW YORKERIA SPECIES (CESTODA: TETRAPHYLLIDEA) FROM BORNEO AND AUSTRALIA AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS FOR IDENTIFICATION OF CHILOSCYLLIUM (ELASMOBRANCHII: ORECTOLOBIFORMES) SPECIES
TLDR
Seven new species of tetraphyllidean cestodes from the genus Yorkeria are found, bringing the total number of Yorkeria species described worldwide to 12 and raising questions about the conspecificity of bamboo shark specimens identified as C. punctatum in Thailand, Borneo, and Australia.
A revision of Megalonchos Baer & Euzet, 1962 (Tetraphyllidea: Onchobothriidae), with the description of two new species and transfer of two species to Biloculuncus Nasin, Caira & Euzet, 1997
TLDR
The proglottid anatomy of valid species of Megalonchos is described for the first time, and the lack of post-vaginal testes is confirmed for the genus.
Larval trypanorhynch cestodes in teleost fish from Moreton Bay, Queensland
TLDR
During a helminthological examination of teleost fish of Moreton Bay, 976 fish from 13 orders, 57 families and 133 species were examined and nine species of trypanorhynch metacestodes were identified, with fauna from the three reef locations sharing 35–48% of species between sites and just 12–24% with moreton Bay.
Hemipristicola gunterae gen. n., sp. n. (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea: Phyllobothriidae) from the snaggletooth shark, Hemipristis elongata (Carcharhiniformes: Hemigaleidae), from Moreton Bay, Australia.
TLDR
Hemipristicola gunterae is only the second phyllobothriid species to be described from Hemipristis elongata from Australian waters, and the fourth from the Australian hemigaleids.
An Extremely Hyperapolytic Acanthobothrium Species (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) from the Japanese Wobbegong, Orectolobus japonicus (Elasmobranchii: Orectolobiformes) in Taiwan
TLDR
It appears that the reproductive strategy of extremely hyperapolytic tetraphyllidean species is distinct from that seen in the more traditional hyperapoletic species in which adult worms bear terminal proglottids containing all elements of both the male and female reproductive systems.
Patterns of specificity and diversity in species of Paraorygmatobothrium Ruhnke, 1994 (Cestoda: Phyllobothriidae) in Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia, with the description of four new species
TLDR
The findings of this study indicate that the description of species of this genus on the basis of morphological data alone is problematic and that the inclusion of multi-locus molecular data is essential for future work on Paraorygmatobothrium.
The tapeworm Spiniloculus mavensis (Tetraphyllidea: Onchobothriidae) from the brownbanded bambooshark in Australia
TLDR
It was determined that each of the bothridia of S. mavensis possesses three loculi distinguished by two types of costae, which accounts for the disagreement among previous authors with respect to the number of post-hook loculi.
