The Capsalidae are monogeneans parasitizing 'skin', fins and gills of marine fishes. Some capsalids are pathogenic to cultivated fish and a few have caused epizootic events. It is a cosmopolitan family with broad host associations (elasmobranchs and teleosts, including sturgeons). Approximately 200 capsalid species are placed in nine subfamilies and 44-46 genera, some of which are well known (Benedenia, Capsala, Entobdella, Neobenedenia). Sturgeons host two capsalid species (Nitzschiinae) and… Expand
Phylogeny of the Atlantic and Pacific species of Ligophorus (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae): morphology vs. molecules.
TLDR
The morphological and molecular phylogenetic trees are congruent and suggest that the genus Ligophorus is monophyletic, and that species parasitizing Liza spp. Expand
Family ties: molecular phylogenetics, evolution and radiation of flatworm parasites (Monogenea: capsalidae).
TLDR
The Capsalidae is shown to be monophyletic, with the sister group remaining unresolved, and the Monopisthocotylea and the evolution of diet across the Neodermata are hypothesised to represent the first shift to parasitism in the NeODermata from a free living ancestor. Expand
Looks can deceive: molecular phylogeny of a family of flatworm ectoparasites (Monogenea: Capsalidae) does not reflect current morphological classification.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of 47 species in 20 genera from eight of the nine subfamilies were reconstructed from nucleotide sequences of three unlinked nuclear genes, 28S ribosomal RNA, Histone 3 and Elongation Factor 1 alpha, finding that the Capsalidae family was monophyletic, with the Gyrodactylidae and Udonellidae forming the sister group. Expand
Considerations on the taxonomy and morphology of Microcotyle spp.: redescription of M. erythrini van Beneden & Hesse, 1863 (sensu stricto) (Monogenea: Microcotylidae) and the description of a new species from Dentex dentex (L.) (Teleostei: Sparidae)
TLDR
New morphological and molecular data are provided for M. isyebi from the Spanish Mediterranean enlarging the data on its geographical range and the use of new morphological approaches may allow considering these species of Microcotyle as being pseudocryptic. Expand
Monogeneans of the grouper Epinephelus tauvina (Perciformes, Serranidae) off Moorea, French Polynesia, with a description of Pseudorhabdosynochus pai n. sp. (Monogenea: Diplectanidae)
TLDR
The diplectanid fauna of E. tauvina corresponds to the pattern already found in a clade of grouper species, the members of which often harbour both a species of the ‘cupatus group’ and another species of Pseudorhabdosynochus Yamaguti, 1958. Expand
New Benedenia Species (Monogenea: Capsalidae) from Diagramma labiosum (Perciformes: Haemulidae) On the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, With Oncomiracidial Descriptions and A Report of Egg Attachment to the Host
TLDR
2 new species of Benedenia Diesing, off Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia, hosts 2 new species that fit the current concept for the genus more closely than other capsalid genera and indicate potentially useful characters for division of the genus in the future. Expand
Redescription of Allobenedenia dischizosepta (Suriano, 1975) n. comb. (Monogenoidea: Capsalidae: Trochopodinae) from the Gills of Argentine Sea Basses (Acanthistius) in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
Allobenedenia dischizosepta differs from its congeners by having 5 haptoral loculi, accessory sclerites that lack a conspicuous dorsal protuberance and that are weakly bifid, by posssesing robust anterior hamuli that are strongly recurved for half of their total length. Expand
Redescription of Paradiplozoon hemiculteri (Monogenea, Diplozoidae) from the type host Hemiculter leucisculus, with neotype designation
TLDR
This redescription is presented based on morphological and molecular data from new isolates collected from the type host, the sharpbelly Hemiculter leucisculus, and confirms that P. hemiculteri is the only diplozoid that has demonstrably been found on the gills of H. leucISCulus to date. Expand
Molecular and morphological phylogeny of host-specific Dactylogyrus parasites (Monogenea) sheds new light on the puzzling Middle Eastern origin of European and African lineages
TLDR
Dactylogyrus diversification apparently occurred in the Middle East, which is indicated by the presence of species with all morphotypes in the region, and the molecular data suggest that some morphological characters of host-specific parasites may undergo convergent evolution in the divergent lineages. Expand
Redescription and New Host Record of Capsala laevis (Monogenoidea: Capsalidae: Capsalinae) from Gill of Roundscale Spearfish, Tetrapturus georgii (Perciformes: Istiophoridae) in the Northwestern Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
This represents the first record of any parasite from the recently taxonomically resurrected roundscale spearfish, long considered by some as a junior subjective synonym of white marlin, Tetrapturus albidus Poey, 1860 and, concomitantly, a new host record for Capsalidae Baird, 1853. Expand

A preliminary phylogenetic analysis of the Capsalidae (Platyhelminthes: Monogenea: Monopisthocotylea) inferred from large subunit rDNA sequences
TLDR
Higher-level classification of the Capsalidae, evolution of the Entobdellinae and issues of species identity in Neobenedenia are discussed. Expand
Benedeniine capsalid monogeneans from Australian fishes: pathogenic species, site-specificity and camouflage.
TLDR
A survey of some fishes from the Great Barrier Reef has revealed at least 15 undescribed species of benedeniines in addition to three species which have been described recently, which are highly likely that these features serve as camouflage to conceal the parasites from predators such as cleaner organisms. Expand
A review of Dendromonocotyle (Monogenea: Monocotylidae) from the skin of stingrays and their control in public aquaria.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that effective control of Dendromonocotyle on captive rays is hampered by the lack of basic biological data on the life cycle of the parasites, which should assist taxonomists and aquarists with species identification and help decisions on potential control methods. Expand
Zoogeography and host-specificity of the superfamily Capsaloidea Price, 1936 (Monogenea, Monopisthocotylea) : an evaluation of the host-parasite locality records of the superfamily Capsaloidea Price, 1936, and their utility in determinations of host-specificity and zoogeography
TLDR
The relative rates of evolution of Capsaloidea are shown to be slower than, coincident with, or faster than their hosts, and all host-specificity for species above the order-specific level may probably be attributed to ecological specificity. Expand
Coevolution of the Monogenoidea (Platyhelminthes) based on a revised hypothesis of parasite phylogeny.
TLDR
A revised hypothesis for the phylogeny of the Subclass Polyonchoinea (Monogenoidea) was constructed employing phylogenetic systematics and suggested that primary extinction with secondary dispersal of polystomatids to the Dipnoi may not be necessary to explain extant parasite distributions. Expand

The eggs and oncomiracidia of Encotyllabe spp. and the relationship between encotyllabines and other capsalid monogeneans
TLDR
The eggs and oncomiracidia of two species of the capsalid genus Encotyllabe are described and it is shown that the accessory sclerites and the tendons are lost early in development and that one pair of hamuli ceases to grow early in post-oncomiracidial life. Expand
Monogenea (Capsaloidea) from Philippine marine fishes

The present paper on the family Capsalidae is based on specimens from some Philippine marine teleosts and a new record for Tristomeila pricei (Hidalgo, 1959) Price, 1960, both belonging to the subfamily Capsalinae. Expand
Phylogeny of the monopisthocotylea and Polyopisthocotylea (Platyhelminthes) inferred from 28S rDNA sequences.
TLDR
Each of these families was found to be monophyletic and their monophyly was supported by high bootstrap values in neighbour joining and maximum parsimony, and within the Polyopisthocotylea, the polystomatids were the sister-group of all others. Expand
