A Comprehensive Molecular Phylogeny of Dalytyphloplanida (Platyhelminthes: Rhabdocoela) Reveals Multiple Escapes from the Marine Environment and Origins of Symbiotic Relationships

The results of the phylogenetic analyses and ancestral state reconstructions indicate that dalytyphloplanids have their origin in the marine environment and that there was one highly successful invasion of the freshwater environment, leading to a large radiation of limnic and limnoterrestrial dalyyphl planetids.

Phylogeny of Dalytyphloplanida (Platyhelminthes: Rhabdocoela): single escape from the marine environment?

An overview of the marine rhabdocoel fauna of Uruguay is given and two of these, Acirrostylus poncedeleoni n.sp.

ASPECTS OF THE PHYLOGENY OF FIVE SPECIES OF PLATYHELMINTHES BASED ON TEGUMENTAL ULTRASTRUCTURE AND RANDOM AMPLIFIED POLYMORPHIC DNA (RAPD-PCR) TECHNIQUE

Collective comparative results showed that certain types of inclusion bodies and vesicles were shared between some species, while others were very specific, and Macrogyrodactylus clarii was the most developed as demonstrated with the thickness and arrangement of the muscle fibers.

Adhesive glands in the Pterastericolidae (Plathelminthes, Rhabdocoela)

The ultrastructure of anteroventral gland cells with processes penetrating the epidermis in Pterastericola bergensis, P. pellucida and the undescribed P. fedotovi is studied and they are concluded to have an adhesive function.

Aspects of the phylogeny of Platyhelminthes based on 18S ribosomal DNA and protonephridial ultrastructure

DNA studies of 23 taxa and electron-microscopic studies of the protonephridia of many platyhelminths have led to the following conclusions: the Neodermata are monophyletic; Temnocephalida and Dalyelliida form one clade and are not the ‘primitive’ sister group of the NeODermata.

Phylogenetic relationships of platyhelminthes based on 18S ribosomal gene sequences.

The hypothesis that parasitism evolved at least twice in Platyhelminthes, once in the ancestor to Neodermata and again in the descendant of Fecampiida, independently to the ancestor of putatively parasitic "Dalyellioida" is supported.

New Pferastericola species (Platyhelminthes, Rhabdocoela) and a cladistic analysis of the Pterastericolidae

Two ncw species of the family Pterastericolidae which inhabit starfish arc dcscribcd has unciliated epithelium postcriorly and an anterior gonopore and the withdrawal of the genus Trilohorhynchus is proposed.
